    Anyone know the latest taps for Magic? and do they change them when coming over here from Europe?

    I'd love to know this, too! We're on the 10/6 sailing.

    When we sailed out of NY last year on the Magic, I'm pretty sure they had Loose Cannon by Heavy Seas.

    I would think they did, since their supplies come from local distributors in whatever port they're in. Once in Europe I'm guessing that they would change to whatever the local European distributors have. This could be completely wrong, though, as they might have storage onboard for months worth of beer. That's not very good for freshness, though.

    Well hopefully they do have Heavy Seas.

    I wonder if they carried that while in Europe or that's just on the States cruises?

    Unfortunately I'll be boarding as you're disembarking so I won't get the info.

    Hi, Phinz. How was your trip on the Fantasy? Any taps you can report on? We're sailing on our first DCL cruise in March.

    I can't really report anything new. Same taps they've had for ages. I ended up not even using my beer mug, to be honest, since it was so underwhelming. The most interesting they had were Chimay Blue (not on tap, but in bottles) and Loose Cannon. That's it. I'll be back on 2/10 - 2/17. I'll do an update when I get back.

    Well that's a little disappointing. Will be on the Fantasy in late February , hoping for a little variety. Signed up for the beer tasting already. Will be picking up some beer in Cocoa Beach and hopefully in the ports (St. Maarten and St. Thomas).

    Sunseed Co-op in Cocoa usually has a pretty decent craft selection, but if you can get to any of the Total Wine & More stores in Orlando, do it. They're far superior.

    Thanks. We have gone to Total Wine a few times , might stop in on the way from MCO to PC. Was also thinking of picking some up at the local breweries maybe. If anyone is on the Fantasy again soon could you possibly post some photos of the beer menus and taps at the different bars?

    That would be great! I am on the 2/24 cruise. If I find anything before that I will post it here.
