I have to say that I did gain about 5 pounds but I am working hard at getting rid of it, I have incentive since I will be returning to WDW in February.

Have a great time, enjoy the food, eat wisely.

Good idea to ask for smaller portions. I'll have to do that. Plus I plan to make some use of the fitness center to at least run the treadmill to work some of those yummy desserts off.

Duct tape is like the force, It holds the universe together, It has a dark and light side,but "May the force be with you" sounds much better than "May you be covered in duct tape"

I have been looking forward to our cruise in Aug,
But after seeing the food I am having doubts.
I perfer more of the plain, all american foods than some of the fancy presentations.

The best of what I have seen have been some of the Kids meals. Based on some of pics of beef, its looks fatty.


I hope I am wrong, but this dosen't look good so far

I have to agree about the entrees... I'm more worried about the desserts, those look irresistable. But the entrees don't impress me, the grilled ham and cheese on the room service menu is more to my liking.

Working Out

That was my plan to workout a little bit, but time seem to fly by. We were on the 6th deck so I did use the stairs the entire time and if DD or DH needed something I usually ran back to our cabin. The spa is beautiful and what a view from the treadmill.

You can go as fancy, or as plain, as you'd like. We went on one cruise that a guy at our table had a steak (cooked WAY too much for my taste) and a plate of french fries every night. After he ordered the first night, the waiter didn't ask him again~~they had an arrangement, if he wanted something, he'd ask.

I thought the food was 'pre-plated'. I didn't realize you could ask for a smaller size! I would love half size servings also. I will have to try asking for this on our next cruise. Thanks for the idea!

Question Msg

Does anybody know if they use MSG in the food preparation? My husband is allergic. Bad things happen if he has too much.

DH and I are also very allergic to MSG, and haven't had any problems with anything I've eaten on DCL.

Ct_TiggerFan: The food is actually much better than photos can show. I won't touch fatty beef EVER, and I've never had a problem. If I'm ordering beef, I simply tell the server that I don't like fatty meat (or even well-marbled), and it must be cooked to well-done. I've always enjoyed what I was served.

Every night they have the "lighter fare" menu that includes sirloin steak, roast chicken and one other thing I can't remember. Served with plain steamed rice and a variety of steamed veggies like broccoli and cauliflower and carrots.

I'm more of a Plain Food person myself, but I promised myself I would try something new food-wise every day when I knew I could get something else if I didn't like it for no extra charge (not like going to a restaurant, trying a new dish and hating it but still having to pay for it).

What's nice, too, is that during the rotation of the three main menues, if there is something you like, you can request it even if you're not eating in that restaurant -- like I loved the caesar salad from Animator's Palate, so I requested it for my salad the next evening in Parrot Cay. For the kids, they usually have fruit salad, but if you want just grapes or just whatever, you can ask for that and they'll bring it.

And I've gotta tell ya - the bread is so good! I don't think I had any that wasn't good. One of the children at our table could make a meal from just the bread
