first_imgRegent Seven Seas Cruises is revolutionising its gourmet dining experience fleet-wide by transforming its signature restaurant, Compass Rose, into the largest specialty restaurant at sea. The new concept and menu for Compass Rose offers an unprecedented, fully customised epicurean experience with an unequalled variety of gourmet options available nightly.This innovative culinary approach provides guests with a seemingly endless combination of dishes to choose from during dinner service at Compass Rose. Guests can select from more than a dozen different meat, fish and seafood items, have it prepared to taste, garnish with a sauce of choice and pick from a wide variety of side dishes and accompaniments to complete the meal. Additionally, each evening, the ship’s executive chef creates nightly specials, which adds more than a dozen mouth-watering appetisers, pasta dishes and entrée choices to the menu.  To complete the meal, Compass Rose will offer a separate dessert menu with international cheeses, premium handmade ice creams, delectable pastries, cakes, crumbles and soufflés.“In much the same way we changed the luxury cruise market by offering the industry’s only true all-inclusive luxury experience, we’re now revolutionising the dining experience by introducing the largest specialty restaurant at sea,” said Jason Montague, President and Chief Executive Officer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises.The menu for Compass Rose is divided into two equal portions. The left-hand side provides guests with the ability to fully customise their dinner, while the right-hand side features the Executive Chef’s nightly specials as well as a multi-course “menu degustation.” For the customisable section of the menu, guests can select from a list of high-quality entrees that include seafood items like lobster, shrimp, scallops, salmon and dover sole, or specialty cuts such as New York strip steak, filet mignon, lamb chops and veal medallions.After making their selection, guests determine how they would like it prepared – grilled, baked, broiled, poached or roasted – and select from a complementary list of sauces to garnish the dish, such as madeira-truffle, creamy herb, hollandaise, green peppercorn and hickory barbecue. From there, guests can choose from more than a dozen side items that range from lyonnaise potatoes, potatoes gratin and sweet potato fries, to sautéed spinach, brussel sprouts and green asparagus.Adding to the variety, the ship’s Executive Chef will prepare a list of special appetisers and entrees for the dinner service. Since Compass Rose is the ship’s primary dining room, the dinner specials will change nightly with sample entrees that include veal medallions oscar, braised turbot fillet, cornish hen, roasted duck Beijing style and seared mahi mahi.Capping off the gourmet meal, guests will find a dessert menu filled with new decadent offerings every night. The dessert menu will always feature a selection of fine international cheeses offered with a glass of port wine, assorted crackers and French bread along with a variety of handmade premium ice creams and sorbets. Guests will delight in nightly specials prepared by the ship’s pastry chef such as Tanzanian chocolate cake, almond croquant, bananas foster and Viennese apple strudel.Along with the dinner menu, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is also reinventing the lunch menu for Compass Rose on Seven Seas Navigator, Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Mariner. In celebration of the launch of Seven Seas Explorer, Compass Rose, on the line’s other ships, will feature lunch selections from the three specialty restaurants on Explorer – Prime 7, Chartreuse and Pacific Rim. As with the dinner menu, the lunch menu will be updated daily.The menu is scheduled to debut 9 November 2016 on Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Mariner on 13 May 2017, following each ship’s scheduled dry dock.last_img read more
