Default Bitter and Blanc X3

I too love the Bitter and Blanc - trying it was a total accident (but a happy one!). My son pointed to the dessert he wanted (a chocolate mousse cake thing) because he couldn't pronounce it - which was the same thing I ordered; however, the waiter thought he pointed at the Bitter and Blanc. When the desserts came out, my son had this crest fallen look because he got the wrong thing - I offered to switch with him - the waiter advised him not to switch and to try it - my son took one bite and his eyes took on the size of saucers! I of course, then asked to try it - he gave me a small bite (greedy kid) and I immediately offered to switch one more time! He was having none of it (GREEDY KID).
Needless to say - I have ordered it ever since!
Question - going on a girls get-a-way, but it is only a 4 night cruise - do you think they will have the Bitter and Blanc on a shortened menu?

My favorite dessert on Carnival are the diet cakes (coconut, mango, etc.). On NCL my favorite dessert is the Creme Brulee with chocolate.

I would have to say that so far out of NCL, DCL, RCI & CCL, my favorite dessert was a Honey Creme Brulee w/semi sweet chocolate ganache on the bottom. I never had Creme Brulee before, so decided to try it and OH.MY.GOODNESS!!! If I wasn't so full, I probably would have ordered another one. LOL

Then I read all about the Molten Lava Cake on Carnival. Got my first taste of that last year. It was really good and I did order it most nights, but it was VERY rich. I'd probably put that at #2.

I've also read so much about the Chocolate Souffle on Disney. Will be definately trying that this week. We leave in 2 days!!!

I always have dessert on a cruise -I even end my breakfast with something sweet

And I never worry about the calories. I work out to burn them

I found the Double Passion Cheesecake extra on the Navigator two weeks ago. Or Strawberry Cheesecake. And Key Lime Pie. And Mudcake...
oh well

You do not get the quality of good cheeses anymore but at some of the up charge restaurants, you can still get some better cheeses. I always get to finish the wine at the table as everyone else is having coffee or other after dinner drinks. My vote again is Cheese Please for best dessert.
This. A thousand times this. Cheese is one of the greatest foods on earth and I still get annoyed if a restaurant does have a decent cheese platter as a desert option.

Thumbs up Desserts before dinner

We never have room for dessert after the meals in the dining room. Specially when hubby and the girls order 2-3 orders of escargot, 2-3 lobsters, and prime rib ! ! ! !
so now what we do is around 4-5 pm, we go to the buffet and have dessert with a cup of tea or coffee........all the same desserts are on the buffet, warm chocolate melting cake, creme brulet, and an assortment of other yummies. then when we go to dinner (late seating) we have a wonderful feast and don't need to save room for dessert.
another thing we do is bring zip lock bags, at breakfast we fill one up with pineapple chunks we keep them in the ice bucket in our cabin to keep em cold, and one with those yummy mini cheese danish......then when the day is done we go back to the cabin and we order from room service.... a pot of tea and a pot of coffee and have it with our danish saved from breakfast.

The chocolate lava cake is also yummy, yummy, yummy.

Another vote for Carnival and their molten chocolate cake!!!!!!!!! MOST Definitely!!! The also had a fierce vegan dessert that was a chocolate mousse with raspberries!

Poor Princess, their souffles are just not that flavorful, though their scones at afternoon tea are awesome!

I have to agree with Amy above - the Strawberry Pavlova, or as it is referred to on RCCL Strawberry Meringue. All I can say is OMG - when that is on the menu, I usually eat at least two (almost embarassed to say that). I am so looking forward to our upcomig cruise in November to be able to order it. (Although, if it is on our 3-day cruise in September, I will be jumping for joy.)

It is just so light and refreshing. Unlike cakes (and I do love my cheesecaks) and puddings, etc., this has a wonderful taste, that you don't realize how much you have conumed until you see the plates stacked. LOL

We are eating at The Pinnacle Grill, the extra-fee steakhouse on HAL ships on our upcoming cruise. I've made reservations for two different nights. They've changed the menu a bit and now have a baked Alaska made with Cherry Garcia ice cream. OMG my very favorite ice cream!

Default I rarely eat dessert as I don't like many dessert-type foods

However, I had apple pancakes (at dinnertime) on HAL Maasdam that were divine! Just the spiced apples and the pancake mixture and it was so good.

Thumbs up Best dessert

Several years ago, in the Murano on the Constellation , our waiter prepared zabaglione by whisking for 35 minutes. Best ever.

Default Re: Desserts

Disney Cruise Line has, at least in the past, offered a different ice cream sundae for dessert each night in their sit-down restaurants. They also offer a sampler plate for dessert. Three of that night's desserts in smaller portions. And it has been a difficult choice for me to know which one to order: the sundae or the sampler plate. Maybe next time I should order both.

My favorite desserts (not necessarily any particular cruiseline), but they are creme brulee, key lime pie, sherbet, fruit plate, or cheese plate with a glass of port wine.
