Remy Dinner@Disney Cruise ★★★

Amazing Remy Brunch@Disney Cruise. On Disney Dream. By 3 Michelin stars chef Amaud Lallement and Scott Hunnel from Victoria & Albert’s at Disney World. Lallement’s menu is French (Saveur), and Hunnel’s menu is American (Goût). We ordered one of each. Both were fantastic, but French menu had more of a wow factor. Brought a bottle of Ohmine Winter’s Arrival Sake to enjoy at fine dining on the cruise for the first time. Ohmine was amazing, especially pairing with French and American dishes. It has flavor of lychee, melon, & pear. French or American Tasting Menu is $135 per person. Wagyu Beef add-on $44. Wine Experience ($135), Champagne Journey ($175), and a la carte options also available.

American Beauty@Venice ★★

Great Food. We ordered all our server's recommendations (see pictures below), and everything was fantastic. All vegetables and Fish were great. Lamp Chop was tender and nice. Just the sauce on the Brussels Sprouts were a bit on the heavy side. I do like their "If You Like Piña Coladas". Alcohol in cocktail is on the stronger side, which I like. It's a better deal. The server told me since it's my birthday, I get to pick the dessert. I thought the dessert was on the house, but we got charged for it. They were not wrong. It was just kind of misleading. Free 1 hour street parking if you can find a spot.

If You Like Piña Coladas $14
house rum blend, pineapple, coconut cream, citrus

Steak Tartare $19
fermented hot sauce, crispy shallot

Grilled Prawns $22
