1937, what a year that was
Diet Coke on Ice or Else
I apparently don't do anything they want to stimulate

Just don't want everyone reading to think they carry the theming far enough that they only have French servers, cause they don't...it was rather fun to hear everything described in a German accent. Our Palo server was Hungarian, but I never thought they'd only have Italians. They had an Italian manager on one of the classic ships but he got promoted.

Love the scottish accent part of the reason I love the movie "Brave"
Our servers in Remy have been french both times we were there.

No problem
Places I have worked have had very diverse populations from all over the globe. Comparing customs and hearing stories was a big part of the fun

One of the "It's a Small World" moments - the sommelier on the Fantasy learned his English in my hometown of Aberdeen! His Doric accent (yes the same one you hear on Brave) is better than mine. What fun we had with him. We have loved all the servers in Remy and think it is outstanding value.

Now I am hoping to meet that sommelier

I have a couple of questions.

We aren't big into wines, but would maybe have a glass or two. Can you get the same cheap wines (approx $10 per glass) as you would anywhere else on the ship?


Can you bring your own bottle and pay $20 corkage? Would this be frowned upon?

Thanks, Stevey

Yes, you can bring your own wine, the corkage is $20, they will not frown on you doing that at all. You will get an invitation to meet the semolina. Take your bottle with you then so that they can serve the wine to you at the right temp. It is proper to offer a small taste of the wine to the semolina.

I've done Remy Brunch, and Victoria and Albert's twice now. All 3 experiences were fantastic and I'd absolutely recommend any of them. Yeah the price point is high, but I guess I don't see a problem with it when I witness the price people pay for the over priced crap at some of the restaurants at WDW. At least here the cost = quality. Plus, neither place is just a meal, it's an experience which is my favorite aspect.

I do wine pairing because I love tasting wine and I think it's the most affordable way to try several glasses.

Semolina is a wheat pasta flour. Did you mean sommelier (i.e., the wine steward)?
