Booking restaurants on the cruise personaliser

8 posts in this topic

My advise would be - Don't book ahead, when aboard they offer discounts which vary from 30 - 50% off. First night almost guaranteed 2 for 1.

Avoid Tuscan grill, food choice has been limited and price incresed to $50pp and then they want to charge an extra $11pp for antipasta.

The only restaurant worthy is Murano but again overpriced, the lobster is the warm water variety and it is 50:50 whether it will tough and chewy to a point of being inedible. Our waiter tried to advise my wife against but she wanted it and was sorry and later changed it for Dover Sole. Celebrity has changed, it is now more than ever focused on upselling everything from drink package, speciality dining, spa and it becomes almost like timeshare sharks of the past. This a good choice but other are now better.

I can confirm cruiser23's comments that the moment you board the ship you will be constantly offered incentives to book the speciality restaurants.

During our 14 Celebrity cruises since 2000 we have made rather infrequent visits to the speciality restaurants because the service and food standards are so high in the main restaurant. This may be why the promotion of alternative dining is so continuous.

Speciality dining offers a bit more theatre and is enjoyable but there is not too much of a difference in quality.
