Royal Treatment on the Disney Dream

As a little girl, I dreamt of fairytales and castles, fancy meals and tea parties. Little did I know that as an adult those dreams would come true. For our sons senior trip we planned a Disney cruise on the newest ship the “Dream”. My expectations were undetermined because I had never cruised before. I did all of my research and planned every step of the cruise. The rotational dining is something I was most looking forward to. Although each restaurant had something special and it would be hard to choose which was better than the other, I have to say that upon my arrival to the Royal Palace, I instantly knew that my childhood dream was becoming a reality.


As you walk into the restaurant you are greeted with a large staff dressed as if they were serving the King and Queen. The carpets are a royal blue with pillars through the room. The lighting fixtures are breathtaking, Cinderella’s glass slippers hang from the lights. The details are absolutely the most impressive thing I’ve seen on a ship. I felt as if I were really in a royal palace awaiting a fine meal. It took me several visits during our sailing to really grasp the décor.


Our table was on the wall so we had a gorgeous view of the water. I felt like the window was taking us on a journey, we had the early seating so we were able to enjoy a skyline of waves and sunshine.


My four course meal started with the Princess delight which was the best non alcoholic drink I’ve ever tasted I’m sure it’s because it was made for the queen. I ordered Jumbo Shrimp as an appetizer and then was served with Belle’s French Onion soup, the cheese itself was thick and delicious once I got through that I was able to enjoy a very rich onion broth that I could have eaten as my meal. It was amazing. I knew it was only going to get better as they brought our bread in the most adorable carriage that resembled Cinderella’s ride to the ball. My Husband enjoyed the Royal Market Green Salad, he said the dressing was excellent. We both enjoyed the same main course of Aged Angus grilled Beef Tenderloin. I think the title of the dish speaks for itself. It was cooked to perfection and the taste was mind blowing, rich and husky wood flavored is the only way I can explain it. I asked for potatoes from a different dish which they did with no questions asked. I hardly had room left for dessert but we were on vacation so how could I pass up a sweet treat fit for a queen? I couldn’t. I had the strawberry shortcake sundae. The strawberries were the freshest berries I’ve ever tasted and the whipping cream was pure perfection, creamy and just sweet enough to keep you going back for just one more bite.


My night of dining in the Royal Palace was coming to an end, it did not disappoint and as I write this blog my mouth is watering and I keep looking at the calendar to plan another visit  on the Disney Dream so I can again be treated like royalty.

If you would like to be treated like a King and Queen, please contact me so I can make your next Disney vacation the trip of a lifetime.
