Wondering what is on the Disney Cruise Pirate Night Menu?
Here you can discover exactly what is on the Pirates In The Caribbean Dinner Menu. I include lots of pictures and reviews of the Pirate Night food.
Pirate Night is one of the most popular themed events on a Disney Cruise. You will have Pirate Night on all Disney Caribbean and Bahamian cruises.
They also have Pirate Night on the Disney Cruises from San Diego.
There are many different elements to Pirate Night – the finale is a show with fireworks at the end of the evening.
Many guests dress up on Pirate Night, the characters will be in their pirate costumes, and there will be other pirate-themed events.
Disney Cruise Pirate Night Dinner Menu
The Pirate Night Dinner Menu is a special themed dinner, so it will be served in all the three rotational dining restaurants. Usually each Disney Cruise restaurant serves a different menu in the evening, but when there is a themed night such as Pirates Night, all the restaurants will be the same.
Johnny Cake with Mango Dip
When you arrive at your table for dinner the bread is usually already on the table. It is very tempting to eat a lot of the bread before you have even ordered your meal!
The Pirate Night bread service is not my favorite. The cornbread is tempting but the relish is not the best. I am not a big fan of mango, so this dip is definitely not one that I indulge in.
PIRATE NIGHT APPETIZER MENU
Sri Sumbhajee’s Vegetable Samosa – with Potato, Peas, Garlic, Cumin, and Ginger served with Tamarind Chutney and a Plain Yogurt Raita.
I always order the Vegetable Samosa. It is good and I particularly like the Tamarind Chutney.
Master Gibb’s 1/2 Pint of Shrimp Cocktail – Dill Marinated Shrimp with on Iceberg Lettuce, with Cucumber Tomato, Caviar and a Marie Rose Sauce
The shrimp cocktail arrives at your table looking as it does above. Then your server tips it out on the plate so it is displayed like the image below.
Slightly bizarre presentation not winning a lot of approval on visual appeal or taste!
I always order a Shrimp appetizer if there is one. As you can see from the picture, most of this is shredded lettuce……
“Boucanier” Smoked Saucisson, Baked Brie, Brioche and Honey – with Caramelized Orange and Sliced Figs.
Davy Jones’ Locker Rock Crab Cake – Seared and Served with Chili-Cajun Spiced Coleslaw and Lime
The Lobster Crab Cake is one of my favorite Disney Cruise Menu appetizers. I always love crab cakes, and the coleslaw side is delicious as well.
SOUP AND SALADS
Carrot and Cilantro Soup – with Banana Bread Croutons
This is one of my favorite soups. I love Cilantro and although the Banana Bread Croutons may sound a bit unusual, they really work with the Carrot Soup.
Chilled Mango Soup – with Passion Fruit and Coconut
Fennel, Orange and Quinoa Salad – with Saffron, Pine Nuts and Pomegranate
My son enjoys this Fennel Orange and Quinoa Salad. It is a great combination of flavors with the addition of Pine Nuts and Pomegranate.
Romaine Wedge – with Blue Cheese, Radish, Cherry Tomato, Shallots, Sweet Pecans, and Thousand Island Dressing.
PIRATES IN THE CARIBBEAN DINNER ENTREES
Jack’s Treasure-of-the-Seas Grilled Shrimp and Seared Scallops – served with Spinach, strings of Pasta, Tomato Provencal Sauce and black Tomato Pearls
The Grilled Shrimp and Seared Scallops are deliciously paired with a tasty tomato sauce.
The Disney Cruise Pirate Night Menu is really not one of my favorites. There are some unusual taste combinations that I am not convinced work very well. However, this Shrimp and Salad entree is really rather good.
Cortes’s Cilantro Marinated Caribbean Grouper Filet – with Crab-filled Arepa, Roasted Yucca and a Mango, Lime, Avocado, Red Onion, and Black Bean Salsa.
This Caribbean Grouper Filet is another great choice from the Pirates in the Caribbean Menu.
Tia Dalma’s Jerk Chicken 48 hour Jerk-Marinated Chicken = Grilled and served with Rice and Peas, Fried Plantains and a Pineapple-Chili Salsa
Chevalle’s Lamb Shank Rosemary Lamb Shank – Slowly Braised in Red Wine served with Buttered Green Beans and Parsnip Mash
DH very much enjoyed this Lamb Shank with Rosemary.
King George’s Roasted Privateer Strip Loin – with Time-Roasted Potatoes, Buttered Savory Cabbage, Yorkshire Pudding, and a Rosemary Wine Sauce
Shanghaied Noodle Stir-fry Egg Noodles – with Nori, Edamame Beans, White Soy Sauce, Marinated Tofu, Scallions, Peppers, Carrots and Sesame Seeds
This is another one of those dishes on the Pirate Menu which just doesn’t look good. The taste is pretty average, but it takes a lot to get over the strange dark colors and presentation.
Barbary Coast Falafel Fried Ground Chickpeas – with Cumin Spice served with Whole-Grain Pita Bread, Hummus and Tzatziki
This vegetarian Pirate Night entree of Falafel is nothing particularly special – it is just fine but nothing to really make you want to order it again.
LIGHTER NOTE OFFERINGS
These entrees are served with Garden Vegetables and your choice of steamed White Rice or Baked Potato
Braised Barbecue Beef Rib Salad slow Braised Barbecue Beef Rib – with Romain Leaves, Spinach, Macadamia Nuts, Carrots, Roasted Corn Kernels, and Shallots served with Cornbread and a Tomato Sour Cream Dressing
Gilled Grain-fed Sirloin Steak
Slow Roasted Breast of Chicken
Oven-baked Filet of Salmon
My children always had this option when they were younger and they wanted something that they knew they liked as it doesn’t have a strong flavor.
There is a good choice of desserts on the Disney Cruise Pirate Night Menu.
There are also always lots of After Dinner Drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. These are available for an extra charge. Coffee and tea is included.

Rum Soaked Chocolate Cake – with Raspberry Glaze and Whipped Cream
Crunch Time Sundae – Rum Raisin Ice Cream, Pineapple, Whipped Cream and Croquant

Disney Cruise Pirate Night Buffet
On many of the Disney Cruises that I have sailed on there has been a late night buffet on Pirate Night.
This follows the show and fireworks so was always set around 10 pm. However, on some cruises that I went on they didn’t have this.
When I asked my Server about this she said that it was inconsistent and that sometimes they happened and sometimes they didn’t.
My guess would be that once sailing resumes, there won’t be a Pirate Night Buffet.
As we know, the whole protocol for buffets is going to have to be changed, and this requires much more crew involvement if the buffet has to be served. I would therefore doubt that there will be a Pirate Buffet in the future.
There used to be so much food available it was, to be honest, rather over the top!
Disney Pirate Night Finale
Once all the Pirate festivities are over you will be wanting to get back to your stateroom.
This very creative towel animal, or blanket animal, will be waiting for you. And you even have some chocolate gold coins to share!
Overall Pirate Night is a lot of fun. You can go all out and really get into the Pirate theme, or just wear your bandanas that Disney provides for everyone.
However, I do have to admit that overall the Pirate Night Dinner Menu is not my favorite. There is no real stand-out menu option for Appetizers, Entrees, and even Desserts.
For this reason, I have sometimes opted to Dinner at Palo when it is Pirate Night.
The one reason that stops me from going to Palo Dinner is that I enjoy the rotational dining restaurants so much. However, after years of Pirate Night Menus, I now know this is the one that I will skip if I am given the choice.
