Your first hours on board can be very chaotic, and it’s tough to arrange a proper family meal. We suggest you split up and grab quick bites whenever you can—the buffets close long before the ship sets sail.

Are you uncomfortable about wearing a jacket or a suit? Even on Formal Nights, a nice shirt and slacks will be fine, just about everywhere.

Presuming you love Disney music (a fair guess, we think), the soundtrack in most dining rooms takes your meal to a high “sea.” You don’t get a 16-piece, live, be-tuxed orchestra, but the prerecorded scores are a feast for the ears. This is especially true at Animator’s Palate on the Magic and Wonder, where the visual extravaganza is choreographed to the music.

You can’t keep Dave away from smoked salmon, even under “lox and cay.” Alas, Disney’s smoked salmon is not quite the stuff of dream cruises. It’s fine on a bagel with cream cheese, but it’s not that firm-but-buttery/velvety, smoky-sweet stuff of his dreams. The salmon at Palo’s brunch is a bit better (as is their fresh-squeezed OJ!).

We love seafood (especially Dave), and you’ll notice that many of our choices in this chapter (all those dishes we’ve underlined) are seafood-based. We know there are many of you who don’t share our love for it, so please rest assured that virtually all the dishes are good—it’s just that we’ve tried the seafood the most often.

Eating outdoors on deck 9 aft

Cabanas can be quite busy on the afternoon you board. When the weather’s right, we prefer the outdoor tables aft—they’re a glorious relief from the indoor chaos. We prefer Rapunzel's Royal Table/Tiana's Place/Enchanted Garden for lunch on boarding day, which we find more relaxed (unless the weather is bad). The crew members who greet you in the atrium lobby often point you in that direction anyway!
