I was reading on X's website about up to 50 craft beers being available at Michael's Club on the Silhouette. Does anyone have a list. Thanks in advance for your replies......

Thank you so much for the link. What an outstanding list. I might just book a cruise on the Silhouette.....

Funny you say that. Because I specifically decided NOT to go with a package because of Michael's Club. I figured I would be drinking the Trappist ales which price out at 15 to 20 dollars a bottle. So no way I'm paying the difference every time for that. To bad they don't do it by the glass as one bottle of Chimay is almost the size of a bottle of vino.

Well that's a dissapointment!

We are doing the TA on Reflection in November and I was looking forward to "up to 50 Craft beers", the reality is that many of those listed really don't live up to the billing as they are either mainstream from large brewers or poor representatives of a beer style.

Couple that with the outrageous price for some of them, which comes out to nearly £10 for a bottle I can buy in the UK for much less even after it's been shipped from the US or Australia to the UK, and its back to coffee for me.

The new concept for Michael's on the Silhouette is nice but on our cruise last fall the place was empty every night. If there were 5 people in there at any given time it was a lot. As much as we wanted to enjoy it, because of the lack of people there was no atmosphere at all.

I will be sure to report how it is on the Summit when we get back LL DH and I got the beer package our first cruise on the Summit (before they had beverage packages) We tried every beer they had at the time and it was just awesome. So excited about the change to Michaels Club. I think it will be awesome. 107 days til I find out for sure

Really? I'm a complete beer snob (DH and I take 3-5 beercations a year) and I was impressed by the list. Maybe I'm just used to the utter swill served on Royal Caribbean, aside from when they brewed their own Belgian a few years back. I will happily quaff DFH, Stone or Hitachino rather than Corona or Red Stripe. The pricing is about what I expect on a ship and most of the truly expensive bottles are 750ml.

I suppose they can't please everyone, but they got our booking because of the beer!

I've read a lot of comments like yours. I don't think the lack of crowds at Michael's is necessarily a bad thing. There's so much commotion and noise on a cruise ship that the idea of a quiet place to escape to sounds heavenly. Add a beer into the mix and you've got double heavenly. I'm looking forward to visiting Michael's Pub on the Silhouette and it wouldn't bother me at all if my DH and I had only a handful of people to keep us company. More beer for us!

DH said the same thing. He would have gone on the cruise anyway but this is a nice bonus for him!

My DH is a brewmaster and has always been disappointed with the beer selections on past cruises. I just sent him the list and he said that it was an excellent choice of beer and he is looking forward to spending part of the drink package in Michaels. Preferably less crowded the better. You get better service and can drink more beer!!!

Hi Railwaylass,

Last I heard, Equinox does not offer the Craft Beer concept at Michaels yet. Enjoy your Cruise !

This is slightly off-topic, but really amusing (to me). I was looking at a menu for a local restaurant we're thinking of trying tonight, and one of the entrees is "Chimay braised short ribs"...not being a beer afficianado, I made a mental note to look up what "Chimay" was...a wine? A spice?

Thanks to CC I now know it's a beer!

does anyone have a photo of the new decor?

It would be nice if they add some quiet piano or guitar music to Michaels--having just another place to drink it is not that appealing... they already have alot of bars, but not enough spots for nice music...maybe they can do something else with the wine area that is also quite underutilized...

I like those uncrowded places too! Find a good seat and relax! Any specific Summit questions I'll be there in April.

Any word on Craft beers on Constellation? Hope to have some nice selections this coming April/May. Would especially love it if they had Old Speckled Hen onboard.

She is not scheduled for another refurb till 2013 per my understanding.

If you could take pictures that would be awesome! Very disappointed in the lack of reviews and pictures from the first 2 sailings after the big refurb.
