Brunch for sure, Why you ask, because we love the MDR rotations, lots of shows and things to do in the evenings, brunch in the late mroning is a great way to start the day with some awesome food! No real conflicts with the brunch time slot

Both are good, but for my money, dinner was the most enjoyable. Much of the brunch offerings didn't do anything for me, but there still was no lack of deliciousness. One thing I liked most about brunch was the daylight. Dinner was very romantic though and DELICIOUS. I'm hard to please too.

Would it be weird to do both Palo Brunch and Dinner on the same day? Our Day at Sea on the Magic is Day 4. We were planning to do Palo for dinner that day because: #1 - it's wifey's birthday and #2 - it ensures we get to visit each restaurant.

It wouldn't be weird, but you might be too full from brunch to fully enjoy dinner.

I agree with you though, about wanting to experience each restaurant. My husband and I always book Palo for a different night than the brunch day, but, we dine @ Palo early (6:30) and go to our regular late seating in the MDRs. If you're booked for early seating, you could do the same, (coffee) and go to Palo later. We've been doing this for the past 10 cruises.

I don't know that it would be weird, but that's an awful lot of food (really rich, good food) in one day!

DH and I went to Palo for brunch and Remy for dinner on the same day on the Dream last month. It was a timing issue for us as well because it was our only sea day and we were celebrating our anniversary that night. The key was having brunch early. We made our reservation for 10:00 a.m. and it worked out great!

Thanks for the advice. We are booked for second seating. So maybe we'll do an early Palo brunch and then a later dinner. Should give us plenty of time to digest the brunch.
