Birthday Dessert on the Dream

We'll be cruising on the Dream May 1st. My wife and father are celebrating their birthdays on April 26th and 28th, respectively.

We've never cruised before and I was just wondering if there's something special the server can bring for dessert on our first night? Doesn't have to be a full blown cake. Thoughts? Any recommendations for discreetly letting the server or host know somehow?

Thanks!

There is a small chocolate cake like dessert they serve for special occasions. If the birthday is noted on the reservation, the crew are usually pretty good about taking care of things on their own. If you want it for your first night, you might have that noted on the reservation or let them know at the dining changes location when you board.

How do make that note? Through my TA or can I do it online? It's a few days after both birthdays so it won't line up with the DOB DCL has on file.

This is what they brought me on my Bday last month. Is a chocolate mousse type of dessert. DH just told the server when I was in the washroom. They sang to me and everything. It was technically 1 week before my bday but no one checks and no one cares. The whole point of the trip was to celebrate my bday. It just happened the kids were off school a week before my bday instead of the exact date.

You would need to have your TA do it, since you used one.

You can also go to the dining changes location on the first day to have it noted.

Our server actually celebrated our DD6 birthday at his suggestion/insistence. It was 3 months too early but she loved it!
