Our Disney Cruise - What We Ate

So, here's the deal :

On our last port, Cozumel, we went snorkeling. I have pictures, but they are on a waterproof disposable camera and I have yet to develop the film. So for now, I will post pictures of what we enjoyed at meals!

Everything we ate was crafted carefully and presented with the utmost of care...

Swordfish on Rice
Fried Ravioli
Pasta "Pursiettes" with a truffle-scented sauce. This was amazing.
Unfortunately, I did not get a picture, but I did work up the courage to try Escargot (Snails!) at one of the restaurants on board. They were pretty good, as long as you didn't think about what you were eating. :)

And now, as our server, Savio, always says, the best part: Dessert! It was quite funny - every night at dinner, when it was time to order our dessert, we would order one item, and Savio (our server - he was great!) would ask, "That's it?!" And so of course we had to order two desserts. :)

Crème Brûlée
This was basically strawberry shortcake in sundae form. It was really good though!
Grandma tried this one - I think it was a pineapple-coconut cake of some kind.

Every night there was an option in the menu for "Sweet Temptations" - a sampler of three desserts. We often went for this as we got a little taste of three things.
We celebrated my parents' anniversary early on the cruise, and they presented this to Mom & Dad. The "Happy Anniversary" piece on top of the cake is chocolate with words printed on it.

Of course, we ate all of this awesome food, but I must mention our wonderful servers, Savio and Maggie (below). Savio is from India and Maggie is from Trinidad/Tobago. They took great care of us and we were great friends by the end of the week! (Even though you rotate restaurants, your servers stick with you for the whole cruise.) Thank you, Savio and Maggie! You are awesome!

About the picture: on the last night of the cruise, all the servers paraded around the restaurant to the tune of "It's a Small World" while carrying flags from various countries. There were people from all over the place! England, Scotland, France, India, Africa, Thailand, Canada, Italy, Brazil, Russia, and many other countries!
