In the first installment of the Disney Dream preview Cruise, we spoke of the new “Let the Memories Begin” campaign. We also previewed the Fantasyland Expansion and its new attractions. The new Castle Light Show, “The Magic, The Memories and You!” was presented for the media. All of this led up to the preview cruise of the new Disney Dream, the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet. Now we will explore the ship itself and see all the new magic and innovations that guests will experience aboard this luxury Ship. Let’s talk about my favorite part of the cruise: the restaurants!
Food has always been an important element of any cruise line, and Disney’s cuisine is world famous. The growing trends are “Specialty Restaurants” that are developed by celebrity and world renowned chefs to offer guests upscale dining experiences. On the new Dream, Disney had upped the ante with an opulent new restaurant…Remy’s. The French inspired menu was created by two award-winning chef: Arnaud Lallement from Reims France and Scott Hunnel, direct from Disney’s Victoria and Albert’s. The décor is stunning with fantastic views of the ocean, and the menu blends classic and contemporary cooking styles in an elegant setting a la Victoria and Albert’s. There is a private Chef’s table named Chez Gusteau from the restaurant in the movie “Ratatouille,” and the décor is modeled after that fictional eatery. This elegant room has a private entrance as well as an entrance to the kitchen so the chefs can enter easily. Some of the offerings here include classic French smoked bison with fennel salad, Pigeon pie, and foie gras. Decadent French desserts like a dark chocolate praline with cocoa sherbet are served along with French press coffee and grand crème. And, like Victoria and Albert’s you will dine on eight to nine small courses in a slow, leisurely fashion. Dress codes for men? Dress jacket (tie optional), pants and shoes. And for ladies? Pant suits, evening dresses, or cocktail dresses. The cost of dining at this restaurant for those eighteen and older is $75.00 in addition to wine and alcoholic drinks.
