The last day at sea we spent mostly inside. We watched “Frankenweenie” in the on-board movie theater and then sadly started to really miss our boy back at home. We took a nap and watched a few more movies on our in-room tv.
Basically we enjoyed a relaxing day on the boat!
Dinner was the Captain’s Gala and the semi-formal night. We were back in Enchanted Garden, which felt appropriate for a semi-formal evening. The menu for the Captain’s Gala is filled with fresh seafood choices for each course. If you are a seafood lover, including lobster, this is not the night to book at Palo or Remy.

Next, I took the opportunity to have more tomatoes since I don’t get them often at home. 😉 For my salad course, I got the Garden Fresh Salad with Tomato Chips and Balsamic Dressing. The Tomato Chips weren’t crispy and crunchy, but more like candied, chewy slices of tomato. They were different, but delicious.
Rem couldn’t resist the Wild Forest Mushroom Soup swirled with white truffle oil. Anything that says truffle oil and he’s there. This soup was amazing. The earthy mushroom flavored was balanced out perfectly with the rich truffle oil. I guess that’s why it’s a cruise favorite.
As an entree, I had the Oven-Baked Lobster Tail served in the shell with Lemon Butter, Bean Casserole, and Saffron Rice. They bring it out and hand cut it from the shell table side for you. Such service! I was shocked by the massive size of the lobster tail. It was huge!! The lobster itself was good, but a little overdone for my taste. Don’t worry, I still ate every bite.
Rem ordered the Ginger and Teriyaki Crusted Yellow Fin Tuna with Bok Choy, Soybeans, Ginger-Sesame scented Rice Noodles, and a Ponzu Glaze. This was one of his favorite seafood dishes of the entire cruise, aside from the sea bass at Remy’s brunch.
I was indecisive again for dessert (real big surprise, right?), so I actually ordered two different desserts. Above is the Amaretto Cheesecake (baked Cheesecake over Graham Crackers with a layer of Amaretto Sour Cream served with Raspberry Sauce), which was one of the best cheesecakes of the trip. I am a sucker for anything almond/amaretto flavored, especially cheesecake though.
Below is the Warm Chocolate Lava Cake – a baked Chocolate delicacy served warm with double Chocolate Sauce. I had been waiting all trip for a warm chocolaty dessert and this did not disappoint. To the right is Rem’s dessert – the Tropical Sundae. Rainbow Sherbet with Coconut Macaroon and Rum infused Coconut Cream. The coconut macaroons were so good he had to ask for more. Our server, of course, obliged and brought an entire bowl of them. I tried one, but the texture of coconut is not my thing, so this was not my favorite. The hubs liked them and that’s all that matters. 🙂
Up next on the Disney Cruise, our day in Castaway Cay and one more dinner post! Stay tuned!
