Celebrity Solstice

One of the activities that cruisers look forward to the most aside from the exciting onboard amenities are the dining venues that usually offer delectable world-class food, impeccable service, and an impressive ambiance.

If you’re going on a Celebrity Cruises ship anytime soon, you can expect to enjoy those, and perhaps more – enjoying the scrumptious food fare available on this outstanding cruise line is a must. Here are three dining venues onboard that you should not miss out on:

If you’re taking on an Aquaclass cabin, you get exclusive access to this one-of-a-kind restaurant onboard ships like the Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Summit, and Celebrity Eclipse.

Blu makes an instant impact with the restaurant’s modern decor. Clean lines paired with crisp whites and serene blues gives you a relatively casual but elegant ambiance, encouraging you to enjoy your meal without feeling intimidated.

Boasting a ‘spa restaurant’ concept, Blu not only relaxes your senses, it also gives you an array of ‘clean’ dishes. These are relatively fuss-free food that do not skimp on taste, giving you straight-forward deliciousness. Think low-calorie roasted chicken breast, and light glazes instead of heavy sauces.

There are definitely stomach-heavy options too, but expect not to be overwhelmed with too many ingredients or garnishes. Portions are also smaller. If you want to keep to a low-calorie and healthy diet – Blu onboard a Celebrity Cruise ship is a definite must.

Dreaming of a fancy French dinner onboard your cruise ship? If you’re on a Celebrity Cruise ship, you should definitely make a reservation with their premier French continental restaurant – the Murano. The Murano charms you with its upscale furnishings and interior styling. Its dark wood panels and polished floors embrace sophistication at its finest, and is pleasantly matched by abstract flower patterns and exquisite glass.

But it’s not just about the delicately beautiful decor on the Murano – their traditional and contemporary French fare served during dinner gives your palate a truly luxurious experience.

Starters can include their warm goat cheese souffle, and your main course can be a mouth-wathering herb-crusted lamb rack and the Murano lobster. Dessert is a must – the Grand Marnier souffle comes highly recommended. Their artisanal cheese and extensive wine selection are perfect accompaniments to fun conversations with family or newfound friends.

They also have Champagne High Tea and use Rosenthal dinnerware and Riedel crystal. Experience the Murano onboard the Celebrity Eclipse, Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Silhoutte, Celebrity Equinox, and Celebrity Reflections.

Enjoy a casual, laid-back afternoon onboard a Celebrity Cruise ship by spending some time at the Cafe Al Bacio and Gelatario.

The idyllic ambiance at this cafe is inspired by Viennese and Parisian coffee shops – with colors mostly of muted browns accented by Damask patterns and lace edges. Expect to bask in a very European ambiance while enjoying your specialty coffee.

The infamous Lavazza Coffee brings you a wide array of coffee and tea beverages – from the basic espresso shots, to white chocolate mocha, to white ginger pear tea on ice. You’re sure to find a brew to love at the Cafe Al Bacio. Complimentary freshly-baked pastries and sweets are offered as well.

Don’t forget to sample the interesting selections at the Gelateria! Their artisan gelato is made of the finest ingredients. Choose among six flavors of cookie gelato sandwich, try their home-made waffle cone, or go a little ‘crazy’ and go with spaghetti gelato.

Start planning your dining excursions onboard and don’t hesitate to ask about these restaurant’s specialties. They’re bound to make your Celebrity Cruises experience extra special!
