Travelcat2,

 

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. This is the best thread I have ever seen. I am on the Voyager in a couple months and reading these menus just makes it so exciting and looking forward to the great food and wonderful staff.

 

Thanks again as I know it is a lot of work typing those menus. We ALL appreciate it.

 

BTW: I never eat lunch in CR, but looking at the menus, I will this time.

(Note: I have no idea what those last two items are. Where do they come up with these names???

TC,

 

FYI, Guanaja is the name of a type of bittersweet chocolate made by Valrhona. A savarin is a French yeast cake made in a ring mold and, in this case, soaked in rum. The names on the menu are perfectly descriptive. :)

Jackie, thank you for posting. However I can only read this thread when not hungry. The menus sound so good! A whole roasted wild boar? That would be a site to see. Was it presented for viewing?

A quick question...has Wente chardonnay returned to the wine menu?

commodore2010: Happy to hear that you are enjoying the menu's! Most of the time the items on the lunch buffet in La Veranda are the same as the entrees in Compass Rose. We generally have lunch in La Veranda in order to have smaller portions of many things. While I am not rating this cruise on this thread, the staff will meet and probably exceed your expectations. They are wonderful people who want to do whatever they can to make your cruise perfect:-)

 

DaveFr: Thank you for the explanation. Glad that the menu is descriptive to you as it is a bit challenging for me.

 

Linda: Have not seen Wente Chardonnay on the menu. Will check the premium wine list a bit later.

 

We are in Corfu and are looking forward to our half-day excursion. Looks like a lovely place. Weather remains in the low to mid 70's with full sun, clear skies and calm seas.

 

Menus when we get back.

TC, You are such a darling to take the time to post all this info. Brava!

We are also on the Voyager now until Rome. Must add to all of your hard work that the food descriptions are lovely, impressive, even.

 

The portions, quality, and taste are, for the most part, crap.

The food on Regent (and a bit on SS, too) is just going downhill faster and faster. Cost cutting measure are evident to anyone who has sailed with them before. I would say the food is fair, edible, passing. No more WHOA!! FOOD PORN moments, LOL. Those can still be had in Sigs and Prime, though. I wish there was no need for specialty restaurants on these ships. If only the food in CR rivaled the specialties every night... sigh... the good old days.

Don't even get me going about the wine pours. Or the baked (shall I say defrosted) goods?

 

I know why it is happening, and I know I am very lucky to have such a thing to complain about. But I am a foodie, and the offerings are disappointing at virtually every meal. We have been eating off the ship at every opportunity. It is Greece, after all, then Italy. So not all bad. Could be in Ghana.

While I respect Martha's point of view, her view is not that of most passengers I have spoken with on the Voyager (which includes our group of 21 from Cappadocia). Food is subjective. Many repeat Regent customers notice a big difference from a few years (months) ago to now. However, passengers new to Regent are not making comparisons. . . . they are just enjoying the food offerings. I do have some comments regarding food but really do not want to get this thread off topic too much. So, onward.......

thank you so much for the time you are taking on this post. so many of us are obviously enjoying it as posters or readers. you mentioned that some of the cr lunch main courses are available at la verandah . I know it is impossible to be in two places at once but can you please comment on the difference between the two main lunch venues are on any given day? look forward to your post in ths, Amanda

I'll give it a try tomorrow when we, once again, made the decision to stay on board to enjoy the ship. We receive "preview" menu's early in the morning for Compass Rose (lunch and dinner -- they never give me the dessert menu:confused:). I'll take the menu with us to La Veranda and note differences. It should be interesting.

 

Tonight (late) or early tomorrow morning I'll print the long awaited Bar menu which is both a drink menu and a menu of included alcohol and the cost for the few items that are not included.

 

This has been fun and easier than most of my "live" postings. We are now half way through our first cruise and beginning to think about the one that begins May 3rd. Right now we are visiting ports that will be repeated so it's easy to take "sea days" and stay on the ship.

 

One quick comment about Corfu. . . . . it's beautiful. The weather is close to 80F -- calm seas, blue skies. The Seabourn Pride is docked next to us. She really looks tiny next to the Voyager. A little too small for our tastes but I hear she is a lovely ship.

 

Tonight is the Seven Seas Society Event. After you complete your first cruise you become a member of the Seven Seas Society. Once per cruise they have an event with cocktails (like we really need more to drink:-) and caviar. The big draw for us is the caviar. It's something to look forward to on future Regent cruises.

 

Tomorrow, Sunday, caviar is served with breakfast in both La Veranda and Compass Rose. Champagne is also available (no charge, of course). It is possible that I'll just have some caviar, eggs and a couple of mimosas and go back to sleep. Definitely enjoying this cruise:D

Enjoying your posts, TC. Very nice! But I should not read when I am hungry.

 

To the person who said it was like Ghana--no, it is NOT like Ghana. Maybe you were just trying to exaggerate to make a point, but my youngest son is currently in Ghana. You really have no idea.

So........ I have the bar menu in front of me and left my reading glasses upstairs. Also have had several glasses of wine and port. However, I'll give it my best effort.

 

First...... tonight's entertainment:

 

9:30: Regent Proudly Presents George Sakelfariou "The All New Show. Once again join 'George Sakelfariou' who has been acclaimed as pure "Guitar Greatness" by The Globe and Mail of Toronto, George once again will delight with sounds that can only come from an internationally recognized first class performer. With a flavorful mix of contemporary to Spanish masterpieces this evening's final performance will delight.

(Constellation Theater)

 

10:30 - 11:15 p.m. Cabaret Showtime. "Come Fly with me' with vocalist Holly Holcome. Join Regent Singer Holly up-close and personal as she presents a selectgion of melodies to take you into the night to the intimate setting of the Horizon Lounge. Holly will take you on a musical journey of those most loved melodies. Take to the dance floor or enjoy a treat from the bar and the company of fellow guests as the beautiful voice and bubbley personality of Holly llights up the room. Accompanied lby the Regent Signature Orchestra.

 

Again, my apologies for no dessert menu in CR. When you are dining in CR at night and reach the point of the dessert, you may identify with the fact that writing down the menu is not a top priority. May have to post a few dessert menus next week to make up for it. Next...... the long awaited bar menu.

One more thing before the Bar List. YES -- iPads fit into the safe (easily). This would be true on the Voyager and Navigator....... but would have someone double check on the Mariner as their safes are quite small.

Thanks once more, TC. This is quite an incredible and generous undertaking.

I have a question that you may have addressed already, though I don't think so. When you have a chance, could you please just note which of the complimentary wines you especially enjoy. Thanks!!

(If anyone else that's reading this post would like to chime in on the question, that'd be great.)

Hi Rachel, I think Martha was saying they are lucky to NOT be in Ghana. She was talking about eating off the ship. I read it the same way you did but went back and realized I was misunderstanding her meaning.

 

I went back and retread, Elsie, and you are correct. I misread too. Believe me though, anything served on board ship on regent is vastly superior to what my son has been eating. He says he is "west sick" not homesick.

The North American beers are they all lager types or is there one that might be similar to a British bitter? Desperate to find a beer I like, as I enjoy 1 in the evening, unfortunately I do not enjoy lager.

The beers listed are those that are always available; however, they do bring other local beers on from time to time when in port. 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.

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

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)

Marion and Kerry

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 (:D), I'd suggest buying every bottle you can lay your hands on. It would be one of the great bargains of all time. :D

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:o, 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.

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:D

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

3 types of lettuce

anchovy

bacon bits

parmesan - sliced

 

Dressing: Italian/Balsamic/Vinaigrette/Caesar/Thousand Island/French/blue Cheese

 

Pre-made salads:

 

Chicken Salad

Seafood Salad

Large shrimps

Potato Salad

Pasa Salad

Rice and Corn 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

Souvlaki Chicken

Mashed Potatoes

 

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

 

Miso Soup w/tofu and shrimp

 

DESSERT

Paris Brest (not a typo) -- flakey pastry with mocha or hazelnut cream (delicious)

No sugar added cookies and regular cookies

Raspberry Cup Cakes

Coconut Mousse Terrine

Pear Bourdaloue Tart

Dark Chocolate Mousse

Fruit Tartlet

Fresh fruit - sliced

 

CHEESES

St. Nc Taire

Danish Blue

Havarti

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.
