for The Restaurant (Compass Rose equivalent), La Terraza, and Pool Grill for lunch.
On the new Spirit, you cruise fare is all inclusive for The Restaurant, Stars Supper club (light after dinner snacks), La Terraza, and Pool Grill (lunch & Dinner(Grill under the Stars (use Hot Lava Rocks to cook filet Mignon, ribeye, tiger prawns--this dining concept was
a hit on our January Spirit crossing as almost every night the Grill under the stars was
booked out. Silversea is partially inclusive when it comes to Le Champagne (four ships above) and on the Spirit, where you will also pay a $40pp fee for the nine course Asian dinner. (u can pay an additional $40pp to have saki poured with your courses) but in Seishin complimentary wine is served with your meal unlike Le Champagne. Techniques we use to make the Le Champagne and Seishin fee more palatable is use our ship board credit we get on every Silversea cruise ($300) by depositing with our AMX Plat card. We then can pay the $30 pp fee and order one white and one red with the meal bringing the cost to about $150 total. You are not compelled to order wine with your meal in Le Champagne. For the $30pp fee, they will first pour you the house champagne (pommery) to start with. No other wine will be served unless you order off the Connosieurs' wine list. Another option to save 25% off full degustation/wine pour menu
in Le Champagne is to order a Bon Voyage gift to yourself/friend at least 14 days prior to sailing and they will charge your credit card $300. We
prefer the all inclusive restaurant policy on Regent more than the partially inclusive on SS (fee for two specialty restaurants). However, as you intimated in your post above Richard, you will have a wonderful luxury cruise on either line--we like the Shadow and Whisper as we do the Navigator (they were built by Mariotti shipyard) but we prefer the Voyager over the Spirit.
