Ooh! I know where you are eating next!

We (both DH and I) had the same exact meal you had in Palo! Considering the other dining room menus were a bit of a challenge for us vegs, we were so pleased with Palo's menu. (We had not gone vegetarian yet on our previous cruises, and always had the Beef Tenderloin there.) The cheese on the antipasto dish is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! And the potato gnocchi with gorgonzola knocked my socks off (and I didn't even have socks on!)!

Love the picture the photog got of you guys at dinner.

And I'm guessing your DH calmed down a bit, as he took some seriously good shots of NYC as the ship was actually moving!

Yeah I was so happy with the options at palo! I agree with the challenging menus at other restaurants (you will see!) Right? What is with that cheese...I couldn't stop eating it! so awesome. hahaha yeah...I could go for some of that right about now....do you think they will send that to my apartment? yum.

Yeah...I forgot to mention that! haha. After he saw Mickey...he kind of chilled out. and got over his fear! Seriously...he was the same way when we went to WDW for the first time...he didn't get it and then he saw Mickey and everything was magical. Silly Boy! You can tell though from the Palo photos of me I was starting to wear sea bracelets. I was so afraid to get sea sick!!

We had a great server at Palo from Italy. He was excited about maybe going home next year on the Mediterranean cruise!

We did Palo one of the at sea days and it was full! I think you might have lucked out because it was the first night.

If you ever get to do Dream or Fantasy, do Remy! As Amazing as Palo is, it's even more so!

Thanks so much!

We actually used 3 different cameras (5 but I haven't post from the other two yet ) Most of the photos are shot with a Nikon D80 with 50mm and 18-135mm. The rest are shot with a Canon Powershot SD 1200is and an Iphone 4S.

Thanks! I can take a photo of what I bought but I didn't take a group shot in the shop. I'll take one when I get home

Great pictures. We have Palo readies for the 4th night of the cruise so it is great to hear what you are eating so we get an even better idea of what to order.

Oh you'll love it! What DH had is what they recommend as the best. Though I was very happy with what I ordered as well!

Great report! You are an adorable couple...Happy Anniversary!

I am trying to convince my DH to take the cruise plunge next year so I am happy to see your DH adjusted. My DH has the similar boat sinking fear!

My daughter and I are vegetarians so I am really curious about the food, too!
Can't wait to read more.

Well technically because we were docked Duffy was in Canada! but he did not come off the ship with us. He preferred laying in bed watching tv all day....he wasn't being very adventurous.

Thank you so much!

You kind of need to just push him into going on the cruise. DH was against it and was getting more nervous as we got closer. He did some research and was semi excited but mostly fear. The actual experience of being on the ship can't be beat. he won't regret it....you just might have to drag him!

Oh yay more veggies!
