emmebear's cruise photos

Tonight was my first visit to this thread. Oh dear, it is another one I could become addicted to! Since our next trip is just a little over a week away I started at the end of the thread for the most recent posts. When I got back to emmebear's photos from her Disney cruise I had to make a comment. That lovely shot of St. John was taken at a spot on the island looking over Cruz Bay and shows Gallows Point Resort. We stayed in one of those units as part of our 25th wedding anniversary vacation trip (taken a few months after our actual anniversary.)

Lemon Chicken - braised half chicken with garlic, green olives, and preserved lemon


"DH had the lamb and I had the chicken. It was tender, lemony (I love lemon!!) chicken with mixed olives and olive tepenade. Served with potato wedges that soak up the salty, lemony sauce. I've been dreaming of this all year! If I could finish it, I would have licked my plate!"

Shish Kebab - grilled tenderloin of beef with rosemary roasted potatoes and vegetable medley


"Hannah (who is 6 but is an "adult" for dining), had the beef kabob. It was served with a mild tomato sauce and seasoned rice. Our server kept trying to offer less adventurous choices and sides, but she wants to try everything!"


Note from jabead: Off to see a movie now with my kids so will finish up later with elleavon's meal.
Thanks for the review! Looks delicious...we will HAVE to put this on our list! How wonderful that your DD is adventurous with food !

I'm so glad that you found us, Kathy! And it's very cool that you spotted your resort in one of emmebear's great cruise pics. I bet you never expected to see that on a thread featuring Disney World food.

When I last heard from the sisters, they seemed to be having fun at Epcot World Showcase.



Ginamarie said, "We had to stop in China for the Tipsy Ducks in Love. Delicious and very strong!
DSis had a Chinese beer, also good!"









And then they presented me with this riddle...





"What's better than popcorn and beer?"







Ginamarie said, "I vote nachos!"



And she even remembered to take a pic of the menu and sign...

Our last update for today was sent to us by a new reporter who just arrived today, bigal'sdaughter.


Like are other two current reporters, she too was at Epcot today and had dinner at...




Le Cellier



First a few menu pics...

























She said, "So sorry for the dark Le Cellier shots! We were way late getting seated and served so DS was melting down. We were also starving so we just dug right in! I had the filet, DH had the strip, and the kids had steak and fries. The restaurant really emptied out when we left at about 7:30."



"The food was great, service was friendly but slow. Would still come back! We also had some red wine with dinner and a Mickey ice cream sandwich with Illuminations, but the kids devoured it!"

Loved seeing the cruise photos from Emmebear! Looks like an amazing room, food, and fun! Awesome!

Thanks for indexing the non WDW yet Disney related updates! Great idea! Gotta say that the work that you do to keep this thread interesting and fun is fabulous!

Trisha's CM review is a bit scary.... sorry that wasn't a better experience.

The pizza from Les Halle makes me want to ditch an ADR and try that instead. It looks really good.

Speaking of emmebear and her cruise photos, she returned home yesterday and immediately began sending me many more fantastic pics! I'm going to try and get these all posted today and total her January game points earned. I am waiting on one last great update from tallen429 (from her dinner at Flying Fish Café) and then the January game will be concluded and the Top 5 winners announced. So with any luck, that could be yet today, but if not then hopefully early this week.



So let's now go back onboard the Disney Fantasy with emmebear, shall we?










We will begin with Brunch at...









Cold foods were served on the buffet table...































"The breads are made especially for Palo!"









"The Alaskan King Crab Legs were epic! I asked for a side of melted butter."

















And then the hot food was made-to-order. Here were some of the available options...















And their choices...





Oysters Rockefeller







Orecchiette Pasta with Salmon







Tilapia and Risotto








Chicken Parmesan



"The Oysters Rockefeller and Chicken Parm were very good. The tilapia was gross but the risotto was scrumptious. The tilapia was very, very fishy. The Orecchiette Pasta with Salmon wasn't very good either. We split half portions of the hot food, as the portions were large."




And their "fruity" desserts...




















"This brunch was the best meal of our trip and for $20, it was a total bargain! We had exceptional service and were never rushed. We also received complimentary mimosas, which was a nice touch."






emmebear's DMom with her mimosa







And emmebear with hers




"I really enjoyed this brunch and it was my favorite meal of the trip, as overall I felt the food in the 3 main dining rooms was pretty underwhelming and not very good."

What an AMAZING display of food at the Palo brunch. Too bad the overall impression of the food didn't rival the way it looked for the other venues. I have to say that if I was served a complimentary mimosa with every meal it would certainly make me very happy!!

First some pics from their private cabana...

































































And how about some food...










Grilled mahi mahi, BBQ ribs, cole slaw, tomato salad, and corn






Lemon pepper chicken, potato salad with bacon, burger, and corn






Fresh fruit, including Papaya!!!



emmebear said, "My favorite was the couscous and grilled mahi mahi. Burger was pretty terrible.

I'm actually surprised about emmebear's reviews of the food in general on the cruise. Most people rave about the food on the ships!! Good to see different opinions! Still. Can't wait to do this one day!! And LOVE the cabana shots!
