Join the elite class, dine at Remy's
Upscale cuisine at Remy's will cost an extra $75
Dining on the high seas may cost you a high price on Disney's new luxury liner, Disney Dream. With some 16,000 meals prepared daily for passengers, most are standard meals including soups, salad, pizza, and pasta.
As the cruise industry enters the next decade, food will be an increasingly important element. Disney has aligned itself with consultants as well as add celebrity chefs to the roster to remain competitive.
As Disney's cruise ships become more lavish, new restaurants will join the growing list of upscale restaurants.
Remy, Disney Dreams new over-the-top restaurant, prepares just 96 French-style dishes that offer guests an exquisite experience. For an additional $75, 1st class guests can indulge in menu that offers French classics smoked-pigeon pie, and smoked bison with fennel salad and blood orange.
Palo's, the northern Italian restaurant, found on both the Magic and Wonder, offer less expensive dishes for an additional $20. Some guests, after dining at Remy's, throught that it was too elite for a Disney cruise ship.
On the Dream, there seems to be less health food options for nearly 4,000 passengers. Not only can passengers choose from the Royal Palace, Animator's Palate, and the Enchanted Garden, but now restaurants will rotate new scenes while eating.
In the days to come, industry leaders are hoping that Dream ship will keep the commitment of food-service tweaks that will add healthier choices to the menu.
