This cruise was our second time on Disney Fantasy and second time at Remy, a romantic adult restaurant that serves French-inspired cuisine.  It is named after Remy, the character from the Disney/Pixar movie, Ratatoille, and the little mouse appears throughout the restaurant's design.  The restaurant is located on Deck 12 and has a perfect ocean view.  Interestingly, although there are 1500 crew members on Disney Fantasy who come from all over the world, the waiters at Remy that I saw were all French.

On the first cruise, we enjoyed a champagne brunch at Remy.  It was exquisite.  The second time around, we booked the same champagne brunch, but then also saw an announcement of an afternoon dessert at Remy.  It was a one time event on the cruise, so we signed up for both the brunch and the desserts.  By the time the Remy day rolled around, none of us could eat anything anymore, which was quite unfortunate.   To remedy the situation, we canceled the brunch, replaced it with a two-hour workout and showed up at Remy in the afternoon ready to take on the desserts.  I was really glad for this preparation, when I realized that the dessert tasting included six full size desserts with wine pairings.

Remy's glass-enclosed wine room has 900 bottles of wine.
Remy's dress code suggests jackets for men and cocktail dresses for ladies.  I wore my favorite Kate Spade dress.  Fortunately, none of the chocolate ended up on it.

The first dessert was this interestingly shaped cheesecake.  It had a mousse-like texture.

The second dessert was a chocolate ball.  After the waiter drizzled hot raspberry syrup on top, the chocolate promptly melted revealing raspberry cream inside.

This is a Napoleon.   With hazelnut cream inside.  Amazing!

This pistachios dessert was interesting, but the flavor was a bit too strong for my taste.  

Rose-raspberry macaron.  It was giant and tasted like a rose.

Chocolate soufflé was a nice finish.
