They tell you to have a nice night?

No one is going to force you to eat dessert.

Well my husband said he didn't want anything & the server brought him a plate that had " anything " written in chocolate on the plate with lots of pretty sprinkles ... I think he did this as the rest of us ordered desert ! We had a great laugh .

Yes, I was once brought a plate with "nothing" written on it in chocolate with sprinkles. I often do not like the desserts so I often just order a mickey bar.

I never ordered dessert and at first got a sad look. But I did usually order a liquer instead so our server used to try to guess what I wanted that night since it was usually different every time. He made a bit of a game out of it. Sometimes had us in stitches especially when he asked for hints.

One time one of our table mates was asked what he wanted for desserts and he said "I'm full" so he got a plate with "I'm full" written on it.

It helps to have a "supportive" family. I tried to avoid dessert one night to skip the calories, and headed back to our room. DH told the waiter our stateroom number, and the waiter delivered dessert to me there.

Same thing happened to my son. Here's a picture of his plate:

My mom and sister did the Alaska cruise last June. On their first night, they told their head server they would prefer no dessert. So, their waiter surprised them with a big platter of fresh fruit!

I have done that twice. The first time for my DH who was totally blown away when our server put a covered dish in front of him that had "nothing" written in chocolate sauce. He thought it was great and laughed. We did it again to a friend on our cruise last year, she was totally not expecting it.

It's a lot of fun to do to first time cruisers or non Disboarders.

Cracking up at the plates!


Our first two nights, our server did the following when none of us ordered dessert: "I never ordered dessert and at first got a sad look."

On the third night, at Royal Palace, our assistant server (who was doing more for us because we had unfortunately gotten there a bit late and our server was doing his other duties) was having NONE of that with me. He absolutely insisted that I MUST have the Grand Marnier souffle, and he was not taking no for an answer. With his wonderful French accent and his charming ways, this came across better than it would have from someone else. I said OK, and he brought it to me. And it was SO good.

DS had ordered the creme brulee from the adult menu, and after he and I were oohing and aahing, DH relented and ordered the souffle as well. So after having nothing (and not even a "nothing" plate) for 2 nights (though we were staying concierge so did have treats during the daytime), we ended on a very very full "high note".

If you get Ludovic as your assistant server on the Royal Palace night, make him happy and order the souffle.

Our first Disney cruise ever, the first night my husband ordered nothing, got the plate with nothing in chocolate and sprinkles. The second night my husband said he was full, my son said "me too".... One plate said "I'm full" second plate said "me too" lol
