Jamie's Italian on Symphony of the Seas

Jamie's Italian by Jamie Oliver is a Specialty Dining option on numerous Royal Caribbean Cruise ships.  It is a prix fixe price and open for lunch (on select days) and dinner. For this review, we dined on the Symphony of the Seas.  This restaurant is very approachable for all types of travel parties as the menu has some upscale items for the adventurous, but also has pasta which is a pretty well loved type of food and a kids menu if requested.


On Symphony of the Seas, Jamie's is located in Central Park on Deck 8, which was personally one of my favorite places on the ship overall.  Seeing the living greenery at sea was so neat and it was a peaceful stroll throughout the day. The restaurant is listed as casual, but we didn't feel out of place in a sports coat and dress for our visit. We had made a reservation earlier that day and had no wait for our table when we arrived.

Once we got settled in, we reviewed the menu and mostly listened to recommendations from our server.  The service here was incredible!  This was the first night of our cruise and it set a really high bar for the rest of the trip.

The meal started with some delicious bread and appetizers to share. 

Ultimate Garlic Bread
Black Truffle Arancini
Crispy Squid
We also opted to share a salad, as we like to make sure we get our greens in on a cruise :)
Arugula and Parmesan Salad
If that wasn't enough food, we shared a main dish and two pastas (you can get them in smaller portions which is great for those like me who like to try a lot of things!)

Chianti-Braised Short Rib

Truffle Tagliatelle

Tagliatelle Bolognese
While everything here was delicious, the stand out was definitely the truffle tagliatelle.  I was debating coming back here for it the rest of the cruise, it was so cravable!  Somehow we still managed to save room for dessert, and again had to try a few options.


Epic Brownie
Almalfi Lemon Meringue Cheesecake
Both the desserts were lovely and a great way to end our meal. Throughout the meal we had a fantastic server who really elevated the whole experience for us.  He was great about listening to our preferences and making recommendations and giving us ideas on what to order.  Overall, a fantastic dinner and a fantastic evening!

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
