Earlier this week we gave you a sneak peek at a few of the fun spaces taking shape for children aboard the Disney Dream, which begins sailing out of Florida’s Port Canaveral in early 2011. Today we’ve got something just for grownups.
At the aft end of Deck 12, craftsmen are putting the finishing touches on Remy, an intimate restaurant exclusively for adults that will serve French-inspired gourmet cuisine created by a pair of acclaimed chefs. It’s the first-ever premier dining option for Disney Cruise Line guests and it’s going to be a stunner.
The restaurant shares its name with the tiny star of the Academy Award-winning Disney•Pixar film “Ratatouille,” who makes several subtle appearances throughout the décor.
The main dining room will seat 80 and was designed in Art Nouveau style with a palate of soft greens, deep reds and rich gold. The adjacent Chef’s Table dining room, seen below, seats 16 and features a bold look inspired by Gusteau’s, the film’s fictional restaurant in Paris.
Today’s video shows the transformation that’s been taking place over the past several weeks to realize both beautiful spaces. You’ll also get a preview of how they’ll look when Disney Cruise Line guests arrive for the ship’s maiden voyage on January 26.
Have I whet your appetite yet? Here’s a preview of some of the gourmet cuisine developed for Remy by Chef Arnaud Lallement from l’Assiette Champenoise, a Michelin two-star restaurant outside Reims, France, and Chef Scott Hunnel from the AAA Five Diamond Award-winning Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
That’s roasted Muscovy duck with rhubarb, smoked bison with fennel and oranges, and citrus turbot, plus computer-generated renderings of the Chef’s Table dining room (top) and main dining room (bottom).
Reservations are required for Remy and can be made online at disneycruise.com or on board the ship. When dining at Remy, guests will skip the regularly scheduled main dining restaurant.
I know we promised you a look at the ship’s three main restaurants and we haven’t forgotten. Come back next week for a sneak peek at Enchanted Garden, Animator’s Palate and Royal Palace, which will host all guests aboard the Disney Dream.
