Two months ago (so sad it’s been that long) our family began a seven night cruise on the Disney Fantasy. We felt extremely fortunate to be able to take a week to just relax in the Caribbean, enjoy each other’s company, and of course eat delicious food. As always, we were extremely pleased with the high quality of the food served, not only in what was actually being served but also the quality of ingredients, creativity in presentation, and diversity of choices.
Let us begin.
The first night we were seated at the Enchanted Garden. DCL features a rotational dining system, so each family is assigned two servers who travel with you to each of the three main restaurants throughout the cruise. This also gives guests a chance to visit all of the restaurants, and it never gets boring because the menu changes every night, with some special theme nights as well.
There are four categories to choose from for each dinner – appetizer, soup or salad, entree, and dessert. Yes, you get all of those, plus bread, plus more of anything you ask for. It’s intense, to say the least.
For her appetizer, Christine ordered the ahi tuna avocado tartare.
I ordered the lobster ravioli. Although it may seem small with just two ravioli in a tomato broth, I really appreciated how each course was portioned just right so that you didn’t get full after your appetizer and salad.
The lobster meat was delicious – juicy and sweet, and not tough. The lobster filling was also lovely, with some sherry flavoring I believe. Also, the tomato broth was extremely light, but at the same time very flavorful and it actually tasted like real tomatoes.
Apparently, I forgot to take a salad picture this night.
For her entree, Christine ordered . . . .
For myself, I ordered the seared sea scallops with asparagus and couscous.
The scallops were beautiful, with a nice seared top and soft interior.
Then came the dessert…..
I ordered the sticky date pudding, which our server Fredi recommended. Normally I probably would not have picked this, but it actually ended up being one of the best desserts of the night.
Dad had the sugar free chocolate mousse cake, which surprisingly didn’t have any of that “sugar-free” aftertaste to it.
Someone ordered the strawberry mousse. Delicious as well.
Hmm…..what was this? Well, it looks good and I can assure you we left no crumb behind. And then there was the sachertorte.
