Disney Wonder, Deck 10 Aft


Palo is the Wonder’s one upscale restaurant, and is its own little island of adult serenity and food. Service is very good, and don’t be surprised if the maître ‘d and your server are from Italy.

Dinners at Palo are tasty and relaxing, especially with a glass or two of wine. That being said, we think Palo is better for brunch. Besides the best selection of mid-day food anywhere on the ship, the view out of Palo’s windows is much better during the day; once the sun sets at dinner, Palo’s spectacular windows just reflect the inside of the restaurant. If we could improve one thing at Palo, it would be the drip coffee served, which is the same served in the other restaurants. A place this good should offer better.

Note: An additional charge per person charge will be added to your cruise bill for each meal at Palo. If you need to cancel a reservation, it must be done before 2:00 PM on the day of your reservation or the full per-person charge will be applied to your bill. Children are not permitted in Palo – guests must be 18 and up.

Setting and Atmosphere

Palo sits across the entire aft section of Deck 10, which means that almost every seat has a spectacular view of the ocean sunset during dinner. Palo has a contemporary décor, with tan wood panels, round, leather benches and deep purple fabric on the wood chairs. A small bar is available for guests waiting for their table to become available; part of the kitchen is open to the view of guests sitting in the middle of the restaurant too. Red and white striped poles near the bar are references to Palo’s roots in Venice.

Because Palo has an adult-only policy, the restaurant is much quieter than Disney’s main dining rooms. The most quiet tables are those on the port side, aft, tucked away behind the curve of the restaurant. If you’re looking to do some people-watching with dinner, request a table on the starboard side of the ship, near Palo’s entrance. Brunch offers open seating, so sit wherever the view is best. Background music is mostly Italian and ranges from Vivaldi to Sinatra, as God intended.
