Sometimes I am too full to eat cakes for dessert. Can we ask for a simple scoop of ice cream as dessert in MDR? Is it free or for a fee?

Thank you.

Of course, whether on the menu or not, Ice cream is always available. However, you may ask for a single scoop, but you will probably get two or three with some type of cookie sticking out. With the MDR, its all in the presentation from soup to nuts.

Our server has always told us what the flavor of the day is (often both an ice cream and a sherbet) in addition to vanilla and chocolate always being available.

I often ask for a scoop or two of ice cream to go along with some other dessert. No problem.

My DH eats ice crean every night. [vanilla] LOL There is no problem. Also if he wants to try a little of a dessert--he orders it with a scoop of vanila ice cream.

Others flavors are available, too. There are a couple of ice creams always available, a couple of rotating flavors and a rotating flavor of sherbert available. the waiter will list these for you.

Its usually Ben & Jerry's, and what I have most nights, albeit a few of the items on the new dessert menus have been appealing to me on my last few cruises.

Enjoy

That's what I have for dessert every night when on a cruise. It goes down so easily after a big meal.

On the children's menu, there is a brownie bottom sundae (I forget the exact name), but we've ordered that quite often too, when the regular desserts were not so appealing.

Both are "free" (included in the cruise fare)

Don't forget, other than B&J that you pay for, there's also soft ice cream or frozen yogurt served during the day. It used to be self served, but on this past Feb. AOS cruise there was a crew member filling the cone(s) and he was cheap with the amounts. He was getting it form the PAX.

My DH usually gets strawberry and I like to get their butter almond whenever they have it. Don't usually find that combo~most places have butter pecan.

I used to like the butter almond too. On our last few cruises, they haven't offered that. In fact, one cruise we did, they only had vanilla and I think butter pecan all week! I was disappointed that week. I am used to them offering something different every night along with the always available vanilla.

But now that they have the chocolate sensation...I get that almost every night. It comes with vanilla ice cream on the plate. One night I switched to chocolate icecream with it.
