Sweetest Wine

Recommended Posts

I can't advise which is the sweetest, but just wanted to remind you that you can bring up to 2 bottles of wine per stateroom so you can be sure to have at least 2 bottles that you know you like.

The MDR has it's own list of wines at dinner. My wife likes sweet white wines and has either a Moscato or Reisling with dinner nearly every night (I'm not sure which)

None of the true whites listed will be sweet enough if you like Moscato.

Best to take the advice of @KJones and bring along two bottles of something you know you like.

Unfortunately, we are flying in to the port,  so bringing wine isnt really an option. Thank you for the thought though.

That is fantastic! I didn't know they had a separate wine list for the MDR. Thank you for sharing.

I will be sailing on the Explorer in March. Can anyone advise me on what would be the sweetest white wine? I normally drink moscato or a reisling, but do not see it on the menu. Thank you.

Ask for a Moscato.  That's what my wife drinks, because sometimes the White Zin is a little on the sour side.

If you are checking luggage, you can put your wine in your checked luggage.  Another option to to stop at a local liquor store before you board.  We have done both!  LOL

I was afraid of the bottle breaking in my luggage, but that is an idea. Thank you. I'm glad to hear it has worked for others before.

I tape bubble wrap around it, then use that same bubble wrap to wrap up the alcohol I buy on the ship or in port for the trip home.

That doesn't look like the Main Dining Room menu - looks more like one of the pool bar menus? I've never had trouble finding Riesling - it's all I drink for wine.

It is from the standard bar menu. I had never seen a copy of the MDR wine list. I was unaware that it existed. I'm happy to hear there or more choices.

I’d definitely find a way to bring those two bottles of wine on board. When we don’t have a car, I will either walk to a nearby store by the port or use a delivery service like Instacart to have it delivered. Nice to have in the room and two bottles often cost less than ordering two glasses on board!

I've also used these with success:

https://www.amazon.com/Jet-Bag-Mono-Protective-Absorbent/dp/B07CWWVM2C/ref=sr_1_16?crid=LJ6M604DBJ4J&keywords=wine+check+luggage+bag&qid=1578152872&sprefix=wine+bag+lu%2Caps%2C155&sr=8-16

It's basically a plastic zip bag with a big "diaper" inside.  There are some more expensive options out there that are also very good (Wine Wings comes to mind), but for the price, these can't be beat, and I love the inclusion of the absorbent material just in case the worst happens.

There are many bars with their own menus, so you may have no trouble finding what you like. The Schooner Bar has a different menu from Boleros, different from R Bar, different from the English pub, etc.
