Pre-Cruise / Embarkation:
We flew into Orlando the day before, rented a car (Hertz) and drove over to Daytona Beach for the day. Had a nice time and good meal at a favorite of ours “Aunt Catfish’s”. We stayed about 10 miles South of Port Canaveral using Marriott points I had. Next morning drove to the Port Canaveral Hertz return which was ½ mile from the port entrance. They shuttled us over where we handed our luggage over the to porters around 10:30 and we were on the ship less than 30 minutes later. Easy Peasy!
My wife has celiac, so she cannot eat gluten and we informed out wait staff in the MDR on our first night. We never had to tell another sole after that. We had the early fixed dining and our waiter (Adrian) and section Head Waiter (Taylan) bent over backwards to accommodate her dietary restriction. Taylon would bring the menu to my wife for the following night and told her to order anything she wanted, and he would be sure they made it gluten-free. They even made French Onion soup of her one night with gluten-free bread. I could name numerous other items as week but generally anything on the menu she wanted, they made it GF. We even ate at Wonderland one night and it was AMAZING. Not for the meat and potatoes crowd but if you enjoy culinary adventure, this place is a MUST. Our waiter there, ‘Junior’, was fabulous and had a great sense of humor. I highly recommend Wonderland. We only ate in Windjammer for lunch on our first day and breakfast on our last day and it was very good as well. We ate breakfast and most lunches in the MDR. My only issue with the meal was our first night in the MDR where I ordered escargot, which I do every time when it’s on the menu and it was actually bad for some reason. Anyway, I ordered it again following night(s) and it was like I remember it being on past cruises. Yummy!

Perfect Day at CocoCayWent to Chill Island and chilled. Lunch was better than Labadee I thought. Loved the chicken sandwich @ the Snack Shack. Snorkeling was OK.View All 69 Perfect Day at CocoCay Cruise Port Reviews
