On my previous cruise we arranged, with the help of the Head Sommelier and the Maître D’s, what we believe was the first Progressive Dinner on-board a Regent Vessel, it was a lot of fun, so we decided to arrange another one. The problem this time was that we were not able to convince any of the crew to assist us nor that this would be a good idea, so we took matters into our own hands.
We decided to sneak our progressive dinner in on the same night as the Captain’s Farewell as most people would be having dinner in Compass Rose and we had a booking in Signatures that night.
We started our dinner in Sette Mari for our appetizers and soup courses. To start the dinner off right we went with the Val D’oca Prosecco D.O.C Brut, a refreshing and balanced sparkling, followed by a Paripaso Cabinet Sauvignon, good colour, a muted nose with some blackberry and spice aromas, it did not have the tannins or structure I prefer.
