I had no problem getting a rare to medium rare steak on Magic out of Galveston. Had to send one back, but they got a properly raw one back out to me in no time flat.

I learned to order below what I wanted on the fantasy. I like my steak medium well. But had to order medium to get a good steak on the fantasy. The server told us how to order when we told him how we liked our steaks.

Palo has an amazing steak. I also enjoyed the steak at Castaway Cay on the adult side.

My DH is a big steak lover. His favourite steaks on DCL was the Beef Tenderloin at Palo and the Porterhouse that he had for dinner at Beach Blanket Buffet on the Wonder.

I've never been to Castaway Cay. Are all the restaurants counter service or table service or do they have both types of restaurants? I wasn't planning to be separated from the kiddos, but it sounds like a quick visit to the adult beach for those steaks might be worth it! Thanks!

It is a buffet style, and they will give you the steak right off of the grill. You could take the shuttle out there and eat real quick I was supposed to eat lunch with my kids, but I could not pass up those steaks! Have a great trip!

Sorry, I didn't completely answer your question. I believe all of the restaurants are buffet-style

I had a great NY strip at Cabanas (the aforementioned pool-deck restaurant). It's a sit-down at night and the steak was the best thing I ate on the cruise. Nicely seasoned and cooked exactly as I ordered it (medium). In the MDRs over the course of 3 cruises my beef had consistently been overcooked, so I was maybe a little too exited about food that actually came the way I ordered it. It may have to do with the fact that Cabanas has its own (smaller) kitchen, so the food isn't quite as "mass-produced"? Don't know that for sure, though.

Fwiw, I never bothered sending food back because dinner took so long anyway and I'm not exactly a beef aficionado--it didn't ruin my cruise--but your servers WILL try to make sure your dinner is to your liking. Don't be afraid to ask! Wait...one correction . The steak was always cooked correctly at Palo and there I WOULD have sent it back if it weren't. Happy cruising!

I will second the New York Strip at Cabanas!

On our past Disney Cruises, we've never tried the dinner at Cabanas until last week on the Dream. It was a wonderful experience! I ordered the NY Strip and it arrived exactly as ordered, nicely seasoned and delicious!

I always asked for my steaks rare and they came out pink so I was happy they were not overcooked. Still, the steaks were just ok. I guess I'm spoiled buying the USDA Prime beef at Costco.

Thanks Melissa, I'll have to see what DH & I can figure out with the kiddos!

Sounds like I'll be pleased on-board, apparently I'm the rare Texan who likes her steaks well done!

It's a well known fact that a woman can never own too many pairs of black shoes. Why can't my husband see that a new pair of shoes really CAN change your life.

You're not alone. I eat mine medium well and I'm a Texan born and bred. It actually kinda turns my stomach to see a cooked steak still bleeding.
