    I've never been to Castaway Cay. Are all the restaurants counter service or table service or do they have both types of restaurants? I wasn't planning to be separated from the kiddos, but it sounds like a quick visit to the adult beach for those steaks might be worth it! Thanks!

    Sorry, I didn't completely answer your question. I believe all of the restaurants are buffet-style :goodvibes

    I had a great NY strip at Cabanas (the aforementioned pool-deck restaurant). It's a sit-down at night and the steak was the best thing I ate on the cruise. Nicely seasoned and cooked exactly as I ordered it (medium). In the MDRs over the course of 3 cruises my beef had consistently been overcooked, so I was maybe a little too exited about food that actually came the way I ordered it. It may have to do with the fact that Cabanas has its own (smaller) kitchen, so the food isn't quite as "mass-produced"? Don't know that for sure, though.

    Fwiw, I never bothered sending food back because dinner took so long anyway and I'm not exactly a beef aficionado--it didn't ruin my cruise--but your servers WILL try to make sure your dinner is to your liking. Don't be afraid to ask! Wait...one correction . The steak was always cooked correctly at Palo and there I WOULD have sent it back if it weren't. Happy cruising!

    I will second the New York Strip at Cabanas!

    On our past Disney Cruises, we've never tried the dinner at Cabanas until last week on the Dream. It was a wonderful experience! I ordered the NY Strip and it arrived exactly as ordered, nicely seasoned and delicious!

    I always asked for my steaks rare and they came out pink so I was happy they were not overcooked. Still, the steaks were just ok. I guess I'm spoiled buying the USDA Prime beef at Costco.

    You're not alone. I eat mine medium well and I'm a Texan born and bred. It actually kinda turns my stomach to see a cooked steak still bleeding.

    We had a prime rib one night I can't remember from what restaurant it was from on the fantasy but it was really good. We even asked our server for it another night and he was able to get it for us again the next night we liked it so much.

    I haven't read all the replies, but the only good steak we had was in Palo - everything else was just meh.

    I didn't know that Cabanas served porterhouse steaks.
