The one thing that people always talk about when cruising is the food. As the saying goes, you go on as passengers and come off as cargo. You know you have had a good cruise then you consider restyling the bedsheets as your disembarkation outfit…
Disney Cruise Line is no exception, though they aren’t necessarily considered the best in the industry and renown for their food, it’s certainly seemed to have improved over the last few years and they have kicked it up a notch.
Note, If you have dietary restrictions, they also offer sugar free desserts and for dairy allergies you can get Soy or Rice based ice cream equivalents.
Anyway, if you like Ice Cream Sundaes, they always have a different one each night. Mum had one each night on our last cruise to Alaska and each and every one was completely different.
Examples from recent Disney Cruise Line menus are –
- Ice Cream Sundae – Double Fudge Bar and Cookies, topped with Whipped Cream and Chocolate sauce
- Cookies & Cream Sundae – Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Wafer Cookies and Whipped Cream
- Banana Foster Sundae – Rum-glazed Bananas, Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, and Caramel Sauce
- Ice-Cream Sundae – Served with Vanilla Ice-Cream, Praline Petite Choux, Chocolate Sauce and a Hazelnut Croquant
- Strawberry Short Cake Sundae – Strawberries, Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream and Angel Food Cake
Creme Brulees aren’t on the menu each night but they do come up fairly reguarly on the dessert menu – they also vary the flavours of these too –
- Crème Brûlée with Seasonal Berries
- Tahitian Vanilla Crème Brûlée – With Macaroon
- Banana Creme Brûlée – With Caramelised Banana
So without further ado, a bunch of
food porn photographs of some of the Sundaes and Creme Brûlées we have tried on various cruises – not really sure what they were at this point, but pretty darn sure we would have licked the plates if that had been socially acceptable.
What cruise lines besides Disney have you used?
I’ve been on Norwegian (Pride of Aloha) around Hawaii and Princess (Sun and Dawn) around the north of Australia and through French Polynesia and Vanuatu. We also went on private ships owned by adventure tour companies in Egypt along the Nile and around the Galapagos islands but they were on a much smaller and more budget scale.
Which of the three cruise lines do you prefer?
Disney without a doubt but they are more expensive and with only 4 ships they have limited itineraries. Also they don’t sail on this side of the planet.
