So, does that mean whenever we want? Whatever we fancy?

There are menues in the dining room, so take your pick of that - and if you want, have seconds... Ice cream, Plutos dog house, pizza, treats in quiet cove, all of the food out on deck, yep - eat to your hearts (or stomachs) content. Order room service (please tip your waiter) all included. You can get food most hours that the ship is "awake" so 7am - midnight. after that, most stuff closes down for the night. As far as whatever you fancy, well, there are limits... But, if you are at dinner and can't find something that you like, they will try like heck to make something that you will enjoy.

You can try...

I did 15 nights on the Panama reposition and didn't gain anything.. there's also alot of fresh fruit on board and you don't have to eat everything you see... some people think since they "paid" for it they want to get their money's worth...

Just eat regularly.. if you drink.. that's where the calories will come from...

From what I understand, soft drinks are included if you get them from the dining room or a certain place (I can't think of it now, but I'm sure someone will chime in) but if you get it at a bar, they charge you. This is different than othr cruiselines, as most charge for almost all drinks, including soft drinks.

Drinks are included with all of your meals. Including the buffets..

There is a drink station on deck 9 aft by Topsiders or Beach Blanket Buffet - that is also free... they have soda, lemonade, coffee, tea...

Generally if you order a drink from a CM, like the ones they have roaming the decks (and they don't PUSH drinks like the other cruise lines...) or at one of the bars, even soda... you will get charged...

Smoothies and such like that in the teen club you get charged for...

Drinks from Cove Cafe (specialty coffees) you get charged for.

If you get soda from room service you get charged... Coffee and Tea are free... so it's good to grab a drink or something on Deck 9.

BUT... DCL will let you bring soda on board with you... (and alcohol & water bottles too...) which is different from other cruise lines... so you can do that and save money...You MUST carry it on and it has to be able to pass through the Xray machine. Remember that if you carry it on... you will also have to lug it around with you until your room is ready - so I'd suggest a rolling carry on for that because you'll be bringing it to lunch with you.

Hope that helps..

I uploaded these because some of the DISers in my cruise meet thread hadn't been to Palo's brunch. I thought I'd cross-post them here for general enjoyment....

It's generally set up as a buffet.


Try as much or as little as you want.


Lots of bread and cheese.


These dishes could be ordered through your waiter. You could order as many of these as you wish, as well.


Same with the delicious gourmet pizzas. They were being ordered and passed around our table for everyone to try.


My first plate.


The chicken parmigiana is incredible.


And then a dessert sampling.

To the last post.....

Those are all BRUNCH photos? I was under the impression that there was no HOT foods at the Palo brunch, which seemed odd to me. Is there an egg station too? or omellettes? I am fine with the photos you posted but usually Brunch's have some kind of eggs.

Can't wait for my brunch after seeing your photos!

P.S. What's the deal with the food? Having never been, are their "rules" about food like when we buy into with the Dining Plan at WDW? 1 snack, 1 CS & 1 TS meal?
Always a vegetarian choice on the menus.(I had a few different ones last cruise-I think one was a curry dish) The kids meals you can always get Mac and cheese or grilled cheese. Now if they are Vegan....I would put that info in early for special dietary needs.

Thank you for the beautiful Palo photos, BigAwl. I didn't know either that there were so many hot items served at brunch.

Good point. In fact there were eggs dishes (I found this in another photo and tried to blow it up a bit). These were also on the table for ordering through your waiter. I don't recall an omelette station. But I would be surprised if you couldn't order just about any kind of omelette you wanted.

Yes, there are hot items... try the Veal Saltimbucco...


The deal with food on DCL is food IS included... the extra charge for Palo is because it is an Adults only destination - the food is a bit higher quality than the dining rooms... and it takes care of the server, etc... I always tip a bit higher also because it is WAY worth it...

& a funny story about food on a cruise...

There was one woman who's daughter came back to the room one afternoon telling her mother that she was STARVING... the mother said why didn't you just go get something to eat... and the daughter said "Yeah...like they were just going to give me the stuff..." Ummm Yeah....

& Soda and some drinks are free at the drink station on Deck 9... just tell them to get used to going up there for their drinks... drinks at meals are included - other drinks, sodas and mixed or beer you are charged for if a server on deck or in a bar serves it to you... tip IS included...

So, if you go to brunch, do you get your dinner servers? If not...do you tip these servers cash?
