Disney Fantasy Western Caribbean Day 6- Palo, Pirate Night, & Fire in the Sky

We were very excited for our Palo dinner!  But before we get to that, CSP wants you to see some of the pictures he took around the ship today.  There was a pirate ship parked next to our ship in Cozumel! DSC_5763 SO cool! DSC_5764 He also ducked back into the men’s locker room DSC_5720in the spa so you could see what they look like. DSC_5721 The women’s locker room is identical.   Here’s one of the big fabulous showers. DSC_5717DSC_5718

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset DSC_5853on our verandah DSC_5852before getting ready for dinner.  On the way to dinner we saw Pirate Stitch! DSC_5865 Stitch is my favorite Disney character.  Probably because he sort of looks like a blue pug!

Dinner at Palo starts with an antipasti plate.  DSC_5866 The marinated artichoke hearts were TDF!  (to die for).  DSC_5867  Then the cool bread basket comes.  But DON’T fill up on bread.  The garlic aroma will entice you but stay strong!  The best is yet to come!  CSP and I decided to get martinis- CSP’s first martini ever! DSC_5871 CSP chose a limoncello martini and mine DSC_5888was a strawberry balsamic martini. DSC_5872Both were just delicious!  For our appetizers CSP chose the white bean soup.DSC_5873  Now, I’m not a fan of beans in general (except my Mama’s baked beans) but I tried his soup and it was amazing!  I couldn’t get enough of it!  I had the grilled shrimp appetizer.DSC_5874

Then CSP had the cioppinoDSC_5878 – a seafood stew with shrimp, scallops, clams, haddock, mussels, and calamari.  He LOVES cioppino.  Our server for brunch on Sunday as well as tonight was Jelena from Serbia.  She was cute as could be and did an amazing job. DSC_5887

Next comes a lemon sorbet to cleanse your palate.  No more than just a wee bite.DSC_5881

Our entrees: DSC_5870 CSP had Osso Buco.  DSC_5882He hadn’t had this dish since the last time we ate at Palo a year ago on the Magic so he was really excited. DSC_5869 I had the beef tenderloin with gorgonzola sauce. DSC_5883 Our shared sides were lobster ravioli (homemade pasta-melt in your mouth)DSC_5885 and a mushroom risotto. DSC_5884

Dessert was next.  CSP chose the tiramisu (his favorite dessert)DSC_5893 and I chose the Amaretto Indulgence.  DSC_5894I’m not sure why they call it the Amaretto anything because I can’t taste Amaretto in it.  But it’s still really good.  There’s a chocolate mousse in that chocolate wrap and on top is a tiny wee cannoli.  I enjoyed some hot Jasmine tea with my dessert.  Then at the very end they bring you a Limoncello frozen slushy shot.DSC_5895  So yummy!  It wakes you up a little too which is a good thing because otherwise we would have passed out right there in that velvet booth!

DSC_5868On the way out of the restaurant I had to take a picture of the wine storage.  Each bottle is resting in its own little leather hammock!  DSC_5897There’s no clinking as the ship rocks to and fro.

CSP had to use the restroom so I waited for him in MeridianDSC_5901the bar/lounge between Palo and Remy. DSC_5902 The booths look like luggage. DSC_5899 It’s really a cool little bar. DSC_5900

We decided to go change clothes before the fireworks started so we headed back to the cabin. Palo is in the very back of the ship and our stateroom was at the very front of the ship so it’s a good long walk between the two.  CSP wanted to get a picture of this one hallway so you could see how long it is.  He said it reminds him of The Shining!DSC_5904  Can you spot me sitting in one of the port holes?

On the way I spied this map on the wall and took a little video of it.  Most of the artwork on the ship is interactive.  It can sense when you’re standing in front of it and it comes to life!  

Our towel animal was already in our room- a monkey! DSC_5924 DSC_5925 After changing clothes we went up to deck 12 to scope out seats for the fireworks show.  DSC_5926Disney is the only cruise line that is allowed to shoot off fireworks so this is always a real treat! We picked a spot near the Currents bar. DSC_5927 My toes were glowing in the blue light from the bar! DSC_5929 The fireworks were spectacular DSC_6001 and I took a million pictures but these are a couple of the best ones.

Once the fireworks show was over we went back to our room and right to bed!  We’d had a wonderful long day and there was more fun to be had tomorrow!

Up next…Day at Sea- Bingo, Galley Tour, and a surprise dinner!
