When in Rome do as the Romans do and with most cruise ships set up for the American market little likehood of getting English bitter. I must admit we only drinks shorts [and not the ones you wear] best look at UK based cruise ships like Cunard "In terms of overall selection, Cunard is the king of beers, with a list of 37-plus choices throughout the year. On draught, you'll find selections like Stella Artois (their best-seller), Carlsberg, Guinness, and British ales like Tetley's, Boddington's and Bass. The selection in bottles adds even more international flavour, bringing in Grolsch (Holland), Pilsner Urquell (Czech), Singha (Thailand), Tiger (Singapore), Ringes (Norway), Erdinger and Holsten (Germany) and Hoegaarden (Belgium). Other UK based cruise ships include Fred Olsen; Island; Ocean Village; P & O and Thomsons but even with these you might struggle a bit, but you may get further contributions from other beer drinkers. Cheers, from Bill.
