Is Regent Seven Seas Cruises dining as good as I've been told?
Everything you've heard about Regent Seven Seas dining is true. You'll find a variety of gourmet selections (appetizers, salads, soups, vegetables, and desserts, too) every time you sit down. And there's virtually no limit on what or how much you can order.
Restaurants onboard use fresh local produce from international markets, delicious artisan cheeses and scrumptious baked goods crafted from the finest imported French flour, and combined with all the skills and imagination of celebrated chefs to put it all together cruising has never tasted so good.
But just because your Regent ship offers plenty of delicious food, that doesn't mean you will come home out of shape. In Compass Rose and La Veranda you can choose nutritious Canyon Ranch SpaClub menu selections that are low-calorie, light and healthy.
Best of all, the one thing you'll never see on a Regent Seven Seas Cruises menu is a price!
