Here here! I thought the vegetarian options at Palo were really good, both for dinner and brunch, but the regular restaurant options leave something to be desired. I'm not a big foodie, so it doesn't sour the experience for me at all, but I wouldn't MIND some better options!

Yes, Palo is excellent for vegetarians (hello Gnocchi!); the main dining rooms, blah. We have asked repeatedly for DCL to include a simple pasta dish with marinara sauce as an alternative option (along with the chicken breast and fish entree). Other cruise lines do this, and considering the low cost factor involved I don't understand why DCL cannot do so also. *sigh*

I gave up and just asked for a baked potato more than once. The wait staff always did their best, but you can tell they are limited by the available selection. If they are doing Palo brunches, I will definitely try to sign up for it twice! And once for dinner, too, of course.
On a positive note, I adored Cove Cafe, I made it a part of my daily ritual on the Fantasy, and it was always a source if comfort while I worked on the Magic. I don't really drink alcohol, but coffee is my favorite indulgence!

They should offer Palo brunch, but as there is only one sea day, it would only be offered once. So sad.

We did that quite a bit also...baked potato and any veggies they were serving as sides with other dishes. Considering the amount of bread, salad, appetizers, and desserts I ate, the potato and veggies always ended up being more than enough.

There will be only one Palo brunch unfortunately. We're still up in the air about Palo for dinner one evening. It's typically a must for us (our favorite), but we are sailing with good friends of ours and their family (5 of their 7 kids will be along for the ride) and I'm thinking since this will be their first cruise, mom and dad will not want to miss dinner any of the nights with the kids. We are sitting together for dinner, and I would hate to skip out on them one of the evenings...we'll see what happens though. I still have a few months before Palo reservations open up...just need to decide before then what to do!

I think we are going to do Palo brunch. I'm saving Palo dinner for the cruise right after (the 2-night to no where). I think we will do it on our last night to cap off both cruises
