Our Frend Family Cruise: The Food!

I know, I know, you've been anxiously awaiting for me to get to this part of the cruise report. It was one of the things I was most looking forward to when we arrived, the FOOD! Despite having my gallbladder removed just six weeks prior and my appetite not being up to it's usual snuff, I still managed to eat like royalty. Sure there's the usual pizza, burgers, and chicken nuggets available when the mood strikes you (and it does!), but if you want to expand your culinary horizons, a cruise is a great way to do it.

Just like most things Disney, the menus do change and vary from ship to ship, even if two ships have the same restaurant on board. So while you can find some menus on sites like All Ears and the Disney Cruise Line Blog, keep in mind that they may be different when you set sail. That being said, be prepared to get hungry!

Our amazing waiter, Diogo, and waitress, Lumi. 

I love that Disney does their dining so that although you rotate between the different restaurants throughout your cruise, your wait staff stays with you. That way you get to know one another, and it makes dining much more personable. Within a few days we were cracking jokes and making friends with Diogo and Lumi. It was sad to say good-bye at the end, but I'm sure we made enough of impression that neither will forget us anytime soon!


  1. That salad, salmon, pasta and dessert table are right up my alley! What was your favorite Cruise meal?

    1. Oh man that's a tough question! I don't think there's one overall meal that stands out, but pieces and parts of all of them. Sometimes the appetizers were amazing but the entree was just okay, other times the entree was amazing and the desserts were okay. Nothing I had was terrible, thank goodness. What's great is if you can't decide, you can get more than one thing; or if you get something you end up not liking, they'll get you something else.

  2. That sounds amazing! No wonder people say that you end up gaining so much weight on a cruise. I guess I'd have to lose weight drastically right before a trip so that way I'd "even out" by the end of it with all those yummy meals. lol
