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.

Skagen Fiskerestaurant@Denmark ★★★

Fantastic Fresh Seafood in Skagen, Denmark. Everything was fantastic. We made a mistake of ordering both the Shellfish Platter and Moules Frites, because the same mussels were already included in the Shellfish Platter. The Shellfish Platter was plenty, so ordering for 1 person instead of 2 would be better. Fresh oysters, sweet small prawns, & tasty crab meat. They do charge house water for Kr. 40,-, which I didn't know about the charge until I see the bill. Indoor & outdoor seating available. Indoor floor is filled with sand for a beach vibe. Reservations available on their website online.
