I’m still flying high from my Disney Cruise last month. I honestly do not have all the right words to convey how magical, special, fun and relaxing it felt to be back on board. In fact, I raved about it so much that my parents are at sea right this very moment! I am living vicariously through all of their texts and photos.

Remy Adult Dining Review
Everything Disney Cruise Line
I’ve cruised with Disney ten times and there are still new things to see, do and experience. On the Dream last month, Cara and I had the pleasure of dining in Remy. It was my first time for dinner and boy was it amazing! An adult-exclusive restaurant serving fine French fare, Remy offers the most luxurious dinner experience on board.
Dining at Remy is like being transported to an authentic fine-dining restaurant in the City of Lights. Reminiscent of the well-appointed dining rooms of Chef Arnaud’s native Paris, Remy is softly lit and designed in a timeless art nouveau style featuring soft greens, rich reds and gold tones. Graceful, sinuous lines adorn the chairs, glass carvings and wall etchings, as sweeping floral and leaf designs embellish the carpet and lighting.
Adding to the sophisticated ambience, tables are set with Frette linens, Riedel glassware, Christofle silverware and china created exclusively for the restaurant.
For an added dollop of Disney magic, Remy—the character from the hit Disney·Pixar film Ratatouille—appears in artful ways throughout the restaurant’s design, such as on chair backs, in lighting and on the uphostery.
Dinner begins with a complimentary “Collette,” a chilled Champagne cocktail prepared at your table. It was absolutely delicious and my favorite cocktail I enjoyed on board.
A quick glance at the seasonal menu reveals Chef Arnaud’s culinary influence throughout, with multiple tasting courses celebrating the sea, the earth and fresh ingredients culled from the world market. Artfully prepared dishes include such delicacies as langoustine, duck, elk, sablefish and Kobe beef. Guests also get to enjoy the global offerings of a gourmet cheese trolley, an extensive wine menu and after-dinner coffee service.
Castaway Club members may recall that Remy was a prix fixe experience. We were delighted to learn they now offer an a la carte menu in addition to the prix fixe option. We chose the a la carte option and were able to enjoy delicious dishes, a lower price point overall, AND we didn’t feel completely gorged after a 3-hour meal. Everything was exceptionally beautiful and absolutely scrumptious.
Cara told me they would bring truffles for dessert but I couldn’t resist talking her into ordering off the menu. Extra dessert is never a bad idea.
Advance reservations are required and a strict dress code is in place. I do not have one bad thing to say about this dining experience, and I cannot wait to bring Honey back when we cruise on the Disney Wish next summer!
Let’s Sail and My Services
With the reopening after covid-19, some aspects of planning a Disney Cruise Line vacation will look different and the experience itself may be different too. You can book with confidence, knowing that your deposit is completely refundable up until the final payment deadline. Now, more than ever, it will be crucial to have the most current, up to date information based on personal experience to plan your vacation!
I can hardly find the words to convey how special it felt to be back at sea with Disney Cruise Line. Extensive thought and planning went into reopening in a safe and comfortable way, while keeping the magic and wonder that Disney is known for. All of the activities, dining, shows, characters and more are here. Magic is here.
While I charge for my concierge vacation services at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, ALL of my services for Disney Cruise Line are complimentary. The cost of the cruise will not be any more expensive than if you booked it on your own!
