Loving it so far!

Sad to hear that there were children in one of the bars!!! I would have made a big stink about it!

When we first cruised with DCL (before Kira) having our own place away from the bazillion crazy kids was a huge selling point for us. Unlike RCCL, who didn't care that all the adult areas were overrun by children, DCL was always really good about keeping everyone in their respective places. And now that one of those bazillion crazy kids is ours, we enjoy the kid free zones even more... while she is safely confined to a kid friendly space

I find with the new ship set up, it's not as easy to do that though

By the way, Jason's handwriting rocks!!!

And who was it that just today said that she couldn't stay up past 8:30 p.m. anymore? LOL!!!! Bendy, you and Jason are still ok though. Once you start pacing the living room floor in the morning in your bathrobe, yelling at the paperboy for highjacking your store coupons, you're no where near "old". Um, that's Chuck....not me, of course.

So Remy lunch is not like Palo's brunch at all? I mean, the buffet part. You order from the server instead? I'm thinking I'd love the gnocchi. And the dessert sounds awesome.

Can't wait to hear how you clocked 5 miles on the old pedometer at St. Sint Martin, Maarten. Sounds like something we did back in '05 on the M.E. cruise.

The bars are used for family activities up until 9:00 pm. I don't know what the time game was. If it was before 9:00, then it is allowed.

Cass, we were surprised at the number of times people brought kids into adult only areas. It is harder to avoid with the layout on the new ships and if people walk through quietly and relatively quickly I don't have a problem. I do have a problem with people who bring their kids into Cove Cafe ... I do have a problem with kids who pull up a seat at the Cove Bar ... I do have a problem with kids being in the pub at 11PM. Not only do I think it's inappropriate but it's disrespectful ... the number of areas on the ship that are not open to kids is minimal relative to its size ... we don't bust in on the kids club with a bottle of bubbly and belch the mickey mouse club song at the youngsters before passing out.

But maybe we should ...

Anyway ... I sound like a crank and I don't mean it that way but it happened more than one time on our cruise ... at least four that I can think of off the top of my head ... it didn't ruin our fun but you can't help but notice.

As for the handwriting ... you do know that's not Jay's right?

There is no buffet or item ordering at the Remy lunch ... it's a fixed menu, so what you see is what you get unless you have an allergy or something along those lines. Knowing you ... I think you should stick with Palo.

It was after 10:30PM that night because we had second seating for dinner and this was after we'd changed out of our clothes from formal night and walked a couple of laps around the outside of deck 4.

I know it's allowed in that area during the day and I don't have an issue with that ... I just don't know why anyone would want their kids to be there in the evenings when there are more age appropriate areas for them to hang out. This was the first time in four cruises that it happened enough to be noticeable to us and that's really why I remarked on it.

Thanks again for taking the time to read ... I really appreciate it!

We were on this cruise also. If it were after 9:00, I would have complained. We had a screaming child by the adult hot tub one afternoon and called over a CM, who asked them to leave. There are far more kids areas on the ship than adults areas - use them.

Ooooh ..... the hot tub ... ugh! Good for you for saying something. We didn't say anything at the Pub since we didn't want to stay, but did make a few quiet comments to CMs about the other incidents we noticed for the same reason you stated at the end of your post. I even remarked on it when I filled out our comment card at the end of the cruise. Sometimes I think it's just a training issue and sometimes I think that there are adult guests who are just nicer than I am and don't say anything about it.

LOL - we even joked that, if they could hang out by the hot tub, we should be able to go down the Mickey slide and hang out in the teen club area.

Just noticed your location ... hope you weren't too badly impacted by Sandy once you got home. We really felt bad for folks who went through the storm on the ship and then had to fight to get home only to deal with it again on land.

OMG that Chambord Mojito sounds awesome! I like your drinking style!


Let's talk about Remy's champagne lunch, shall we?


Icy Bubbles


Curious.... is this like an ice wine and champage mix?


The price of the lunch, which includes one glass of champagne, is $50 per person. It is an additional $25 per person for the champagne pairings but well worth the cost, something I admit being skeptical of going into the event.



Ok, so I'm dying to try Remi, for brunch or for dinner, whatever might work, but I'm a very picky eater, so I'm wondering.... most of all I hate seafood. Would they offer alternatives? Or is there enough other stuff that I could let Bob have all my seafood portions and I eat anything else, oh except mushrooms too, yuck







I ordered a drink called A 38 Hajo which included Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos (a Hungarian dessert wine that is the bomb), Palinka, Elderflower Liqueur, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and apple juice. This was just too good for words and so full of wonderful booziness that I really do wish I were drinking it right now.


A 38 Hajo



Yet another Elderflower drink! Yay! I'm starting to copy your drinks I like to look for them when I'm on my next cruise! A wish list!


Coming soon ... Day 4 in St. Martin and St. Maarten! We visit the French side of the island ... we find the Guavaberry Emporium ... we walk more than five miles before dinner ... and we spend the evening at Remy making pigs of ourselves yet again! Thanks for reading so far - hope you've enjoyed!
Love, love, love your trip reports! Always so entertaining!

I never normally eat seafood but if there is ever a place to try it it is Remy! Expensive meals but so worth it. And the champagne is just served over ice - like Brenda it wasn't my favourite.
