Of the North American beers listed, the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is the one you should try. Hope this helps.

On our cruise that included ireland, they had several local brews available as well as hard cider that I did enjoy ( not a beer fan). So it depends where you are cruising. All beers are from a bottle, none on tap.
rachelG thanks for your reply. We are sailing from Barcelona to Southampton, bottles don't worry me, but with that selection then I might have to drink wine or shorts, that will be a great hardship (only joking will love it).

DaveF, thanks for the hint, will try it, lager (or the British version I find is to gassy)

Thanks for posting all the menus and lists, TC. Since we'll be on the Voyager in about a month, it's very helpful.

BTW, assuming the price for the Louis Roederer Cristal Rose Champagne is not a typo (), I'd suggest buying every bottle you can lay your hands on. It would be one of the great bargains of all time.

To bad there isn't more small brewers ales on board. There are so many now in the USA.

When we were going thru the Med this past November, they had Mythos (think I spelled that right, a Greek lager) on board (bottle) which we thought was pretty cool. Two years before we had suggested that Regent should try to carry some regional brews in their sailings around the world.

DaveFr: It must be a typo. . . . but, I do recall it being much less expensive than expected. Will check when I get back upstairs (I post in the computer room because it does not lose the connection as easily as in the suite).

Poss: We are red wine drinkers. . . . our favorite, so far, from the menu, was "Chaeau Tanunda, Grand Barossa Valley Shiraz, South Australia, 2008" (we are not generally lovers of Shiraz). Also enjoy Bogle wines -- available if you ask at no cost.

charltonkerry: You can request a special beer to have onboard if you think it is easy to obtain at one of the ports you will be visiting. Either have your TA contact Regent or contact them yourself. Once onboard, you can certainly ask if a specific beer can be obtained at an upcoming port.

English Tim: Taste is subjective..... however, I find the champagne on board to be quite good. I had some this morning (Sunday) with caviar at breakfast. Also have had Kir Royale's in the bar and occasionally have mimosas.

Sorry if I missed any questions. My next challenge is the comparison of La Veranda and Compass Rose at lunch. I may not have been clear about where we are having lunch every day. . . . . La Veranda. When I'm read for a hamaburger, it will be at the Pool Bar. Hmmmmm, need to write something on that as well. This has been a lesson in just how many food options there really is on Regent.

Corrections to bar menu. Just went back to the suite and proof-read the Bar Menu post. Considering the fact that I wasn't wearing reading glasses, it wasn't too bad:-)

For those who wear reading glasses, without them it is easy to read 525.00 and $25.00 (sort of?). Enough excuses -- Louis Roederer Cristal Rose 2002 is $525.00 per bottle (sorry)

Under "ARMAGNAC" I neglected to add the following:

Folles Blanches 12 year old $11.00
Larresingle Laubad X.O. $11.00

and.....

Under the "PORT" category, I did not put a price for Graham's Malvedos 1998. It is $13

Last (thankfully) is under "COGNAC". The Martell Cordon Bleu is $19.00 -- not $19.99.

I tried to post this from the iPad in my suite which I am finding pretty useless. It drops the connection constantly. This might vary depending upon your suite location.

Let me add my thanks to you for posting all these menus. I know it's a very time-consuming task, but it's very much appreciated. Could you let me know whether veggie burgers are available at any of the venues on the ship, particularly at the pool grill? I was disappointed not to see them as an option on the room service menu, and am wondering whether my travel agent can request Regent to add this item for my sailing (I'm a vegetarian).

Will check the Pool Grill the next time I am there. I would be surprised not to see a veggie burger on the menu.

Kazu: Having only sailed on Regent, I don't know what the other cruise lines' boards are like, but I want to point something out about Regent's. You've probably seen that many posters speak of the excellent service on board Regent: how people really like and care about the employees and how the staff seems genuinely to care about the passengers and go about their duties with visible pride and pleasure. I wanted to say that the same spirit of helpfulness and friendliness and going above and beyond for the sake of others is very much in evidence on the Regent message board. It's something I've appreciated very much over the years.
If you try Regent, I hope you'll love the experience as much as we have.

There actually several different veggie burgers on the pool grill menu. I have tried a couple and they were really good.

Jackie,
If you and Dennis get the chance and are willing, give this a try:

Serabel, Chateneuf-du-Pape A.O.C. Rhone Valley, France 2008

I really am a fan of some of the B&G Chateneuf-du-Pape I have bought in shops here and would like to get your opinion of this one.

I know it's a tough mission .

Hi Greg,: Coincidentally, some of this exact wine was sent to our suite for tasting tonight. Although we just finished a bottle of wine at dinner, we have sampled this and found it extremely good. Definitely not a touch mission

LA VERANDA LUNCH. I took notes on everything I could (getting rather strange looks). Some items did not have explanatory signs.

As you enter La Veranda, there is a pizza station before you approach the buffet. There are three pizza choices every day. Margarita pizza (always offered)....... today's other offerings was salmon pizza and mushroom/onion (another possible vegetarian option).

The salad bar had:
Cucumbers

Pre-made salads:

Chicken Salad

Endive with Sardines
Bread with feta cheese
ham roll-ups
Ham and salami
Proscuitto
Caraway Rolls with liver sausage and sliced pickles

On the side:
Olives -- black and green
Jalapenos
Things that I have missed -- sorry.

Also:

Whole Wheat Chiabatta with salmon salad and cucumbers
Pita w/Humus and Sauteed Mushrooms
Flank Seak (horseradish and gravy on side) -- this is at carving station

Cod Fillet
Mixed Vegetables
Roasted Pork Loin
Roasted potatoes
Rice

Mashed Potatoes

At pasta station: Pasta Con Polpettioe di Vitello (misspelled) - Veal Meatballs in tomato sauce.

There is also a hot dessert dish. Today it was Croissant Chocolate Chip Pudding w/cream or custard

NOTE: These items change a lot. This is just a sample that I am giving per request.

Tomorrow we have a rather long tour. I need to post tonight 's CR menu but it may take 24 hours or so.

Also have to say that poss' post (prior to mine) explains the crew on Regent perfectly. They are here to make your cruise the best it can possibly be. Take some time to get to know them. . . . . they will also get to know you and this will make the cruise just a little bit better.
