AUGUST 27, 2016

Your Guide to Celebrity Cruises’ Specialty Restaurants

Celebrity Cruises has a variety of specialty cruise restaurants you can choose to dine at while onboard. If you’re only planning to eat at one or two, you might be unsure how to choose the best one for you so we are breaking down Celebrity specialty restaurants to make it easier for you, including a brand new specialty restaurant and a helpful dining program debuting on Celebrity Cruises later this year.

Looking for Romance?

Make a reservation for Murano, which offers classic French cuisine with some modern twists. The dining room is softly lit with a romantic feel thanks to white tablecloths and sumptuous décor. Special touches like an entree flambéed tableside also ensure you won’t run out of things to talk about with your dining mate. You can also try Murano’s Five Senses tasting menu, which serves six courses paired with wine.

Want to Feel Like You’re in Tuscany?

Bring the whole family or join some new friends at Tuscan Grille (or ask for a table of two if you’re looking for some more romance) and enjoy the contemporary rustic Italian setting. Tuscan Grille just debuted a new menu put together by Celebrity’s Michelin-starred culinary lead, Chef Gallagher. Pasta served in Tuscan Grille is 100% homemade, and you can also enjoy artisanal cheese and meats plus USDA prime dry-aged steaks and a variety of Italian cuisine favorites. You can pair your meal with an Italian wine or a glass of house-made limoncello.

Seeking Some Exclusivity?

Want a Unique Experience?

At Qsine, you’ll have a meal that is unlike anything you’ve had before. You’ll order your meal from iPads and be delighted with how your food comes as familiar cuisine items are transformed into something resembling works of art, like the sushi pops – but don’t worry, you’ll still want to eat it as it will be too tasty not to!

Does Healthy and Spa-Inspired Sound Good?

If time at the spa sounds like your ideal vacation day, then you’ll love capping it with dinner at Blu, Celebrity’s gorgeous restaurant that serves a spa-inspired menu. Be soothed by the bright white and rich blue décor that is reminiscent of scenes from the Mediterranean while you choose from healthy, yet flavorful and exciting dishes. One caveat of Blue: you’ll need to be staying in an AquaClass stateroom in order to dine at Blu. AquaClass staterooms have private verandas and many spa-oriented perks, which you can read more about here.

Want to Dine Al Fresco?

Lawn Club Grill also has a fun atmosphere with custom-built grills where each table’s designated “grill master” can help prepare the table’s order while overseen by a Celebrity chef. You can also build your own pizza or put together your ideal salad at the salad bar.

Like New Things?

Check out Celebrity’s newest specialty restaurant offering: Sushi on Five. Though sushi can be found at Qsine and Silk Harvest, it will be the main focus at Sushi on Five. The menu was put together by expert sushi chef Yoshikazu “Yoshi” Okada, and will be a la carte, so it’s ideal for stopping at for a light lunch or a full dinner. In addition to hand-rolled sushi, Sushi on Five will include tableside grated wasabi, house-made soy sauce, and other appetizer and entrée options. You can pair your meal with sake, Japanese beers, or an Asian-inspired cocktail.
Ships: Celebrity Reflection, Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Silhouette, Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Equinox, Celebrity Constellation. Will be debuting on Celebrity Eclipse on September 17, 2016 and Celebrity Summit on October 16, 2016.
Food Style: Japanese
Dress Code: Casual
Meals Served: Lunch, Dinner

Sushi on Five is just the start of new things coming for Celebrity Cruises’ cuisine experience. Next up is incorporating the program Dine Aware into the Celebrity cruising experience, which will debut in November 2016 and will make Celebrity the first cruise line to use the program. Dine Aware is the only standard for the food and beverage industry that focuses on food allergy and intolerance communication and experiences, meaning guests with special dietary needs will be able to dine confident while sailing on Celebrity Cruises.

Most specialty restaurants onboard are an additional charge to dine at, but are a much lower pricepoint than what you would have to pay to dine at a comparable restaurant on land, making it both an amazing culinary experience and deal. Be sure to book your specialty restaurant in advance of your sail date or as soon as you board as many of the restaurants fill up fast, particularly on certain nights. To find out more about the dining experience onboard Celebrity Cruises, or to book your cruise and start reserving your specialty restaurant experiences, visit www.CelebrityCruises.com or speak with your travel agent.
