On October 8th, 2021 we set sail on the Disney Dream. This was our second Disney Cruise and was excited to visit all the restaurant again. On this cruise, we had the second dining rotation which began seating at 8:15 pm. The first night we dined at the Royal Palace which is located on the 3rd floor right off the atrium.
Remember on a Disney Cruise, you can select two from each section. On our most recent cruise we had 6 in our travel party.
Our seats were located in the center of the restaurant next to the Grand Piano, which had a someone playing at it along with a violinist.
We began the evening with our bread service and drinks. The Bread service was a Dinner Roll Basket featuring Olive Oil for dipping. Personally, those of us who loved the oil loved it. As for drink, a couple of us tried some of the alcoholic beverages as well as the specialty drinks.
First up we have the Princess Delight. This drink featured Passion Fruit Juice and Mango Purée. Kirsten absolutely fell in love with this drink on the first Disney cruise. This tasted very similar to the POG juice offered at The Walt Disney World Restaurants.
Next up, we have the two alcoholic beverage offerings at the Royal Palace. Double Crowned (Left) and Imperial Illusion (Left). Double Crowned featured Crown Royal, Chambered, Cointreau, Cranberry Juice and Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice. This was Rhonda’s favorite drink from the whole cruise. Next we have The Imperial Illusion. This drink has Absolut Mandarin, Apple Pucker, Blue Curacao Liquor and Pineapple Juice.
SOUPS AND SALADS
Next up was our soup and salad portion of the meal. Out of the 6 of us 5 of us got the Chicken Noodle Soup that was featured in the Kids Menu area. This soup was a favorite for a couple of us at the table, but it also was not a favorite for some of us at the table. The Chicken Noodle soup did not have much chicken in it, was not the typical Chicken Noodle Soup that you would expect from a Kids Menu. Tom tried the Farmhouse Salad, it was a crispy and fresh salad full of flavor, and we would recommend for anyone who didn’t like any of the soup options.
Move on to our appetizers, we had the Breaded and Deep Fried Brie with an Orange and Cranberry Chutney. We loved the combination of the fried texture and creaminess of the cheese. We personally did not like the Chutney.
Next we have the Main Entrees, first up we have the Slow Roasted Breast of Chicken with Grilled Vegetables and Baked Potatoes from the Lighter Notes offering. This was a fan favorite for our picky eater. It was a flavorful meal, the chicken was cooked just right.
A few of us has the Chateaubriand – Roasted Filet Steak featuring Crushed New Potatoes with Shallots, Buttered Green Beans, Res Wine Jus and a Bearnaise Sauce on the Side. This was a favorite of Tom and Kirsten’s from the first cruise. The Filet Steak was cooked just as requested. The potatoes were absolutely amazing and were very well cooked.
Saving the best for last… Dessert. First we have the Sundae, this sundae featured a Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Chocolate Sauce and the famous Mickey Sprinkles topped with a Cherry. This was Makayla’s favorite as the ice cream had a very strong vanilla taste with it being a homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
Next, we got the No Sugar Added Dessert Duo Chocolate Slice, which is a layer of Brownie and Truffle Mousse with a Berry Creme. This is very similar to the Clock Strikes Midnight from Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom. This was a very sweet dessert. We highly recommend trying the Berry Creme and Dessert together.
