I've been reading menus and know I can order more than one entrée if I like the look of them but can you suggest some food musts that we should have while we are on the Wonder for 5 nights? We are also doing a Palo brunch... I don't want to miss something fantastic but, in an effort to fit into my pants when I get off the boat, ,I also don't want to have to eat everything to find it! (I'm also that last to order person that is still staring at the menu after the Waitress has has been around taking everyone else's orders at the table ). I try to have a list in my head before I get there so I can just speed everything up!

Should mention we have the signature menus from Tritons, parrot Cay and animators a palate as well as till we meet again menu and pirate night. I guess "what should I not have because it's really not worth the calories? " would be a good question too!

The two desserts I really loved were the chocolate souffle at Palo and the Chocolate lava cake. I found almost all the cheesecakes to be blah and not that great. In fact I felt like all the cheesecakes were the same with a different type of jelly on top. I think the only other dessert that was interesting was the bread pudding or something like that in Parrot Cay.

For main courses most were blah. I think my favorite was the steak at Palo. I don't remember if you can get it at brunch. Everything else I don't remember so even though some were good they didn't wow me.

There was a yummy soufflé in Triton's, not chocolate. I don't know if it will be on the shorter cruises or not. And the fried ravioli appy in Parrot Cay is so yummy.
The mushroom ravioli in tomato sauce in Tritons is disgusting (my daughter thought I said it tasted like a baboons butt... I didn't, but it was actually a pretty accurate description!)

I second the Chocolate Souffle in Palo and the Chocolate Lava Cake in the MDRs. And I would add the Grand Marnier Souffle in Triton's.

I love the Creamy Butternut Squash Soup in AP. In Parrot Cay I had the slow roasted rib-eye of beef.

From the other menus:

Let the Magic Begin - Rack of New Zealand Lamb
Captain's Gala - French Onion soup (so good, and quite filling); Grilled Venison Medallions; Fettuccine with Parmesan Crusted Chicken are all things I've enjoyed.

DH & I have ordered the lighter fare chicken or steak, also. They are quite good.

And I would eat Palo brunch every day, if I could.

We've only done the wonder. Don't remember a memorable salty food, sorry.

We are big desert people. We are a family if 4. We decided to order 4 different deserts each night and share! We take one bite and pass it to the right. You can always get seconds if 1 becomes everyone's favorite!

We loved Palo dinner. Comparable to special restaurants at home

I think it was the Grand Marnier souffle that I had, too. i hope it's available on the shorter cruises

It's on the Signature menu for Triton's, so yes, it'll be offered.

There's a Palo Brunch on the Wonder? Oh no. How did I miss this. We are going on the Wonder in Feb. Is it too late to sign up for a brunch?

Not sure what sailing you are on, but if it is the 4-night with no sea days(Key West, Nassau, CC), then there is no brunch. This was a big bummer for me.

Yay!! I couldn't remember- both of our 7 day cruises had other menus too and I wasn't paying attention to when and what I ate!! Thanks!

I definitely agree with Gran Marnier souffle, soo good! For some reason the chicken fingers on deck are always a favorite of ours, maybe it's because we're so hungry from all the fresh air and swimming. And we always order Mickey Bars from room service at least once per cruise.

Oh, yeah! I forgot to mention the chicken strips at Pluto's Dog House!!!!!

That's my standard mid afternoon snack. Every day. I think, in all our cruises, I've only NOT gotten them about 3 times. And DS had the chicken strips from the kids menu as his appitizer every night in the MDRs.

They are incredibly addicting, regardless of fresh air or swimming.
