Cruise Ship Restaurants
The cruise lines are expanding culinary choices, resulting in more ocean restaurants than ever before. You’ll find delicacies from the seas, to sushi, to Mexican fare and more. There are 2553 actual ocean view restaurants, and we mean really in the middle of the ocean!
A couple of examples of fashionable gastronomic experiences:
- Table La Rive – An exclusive experience on Scenic River Cruises at a 10-seat executive chef’s table. This elegant and intimate dining includes a six course dégustation menu replete with sommelier paired wines.
- Ultimate Vintage Room Dinners on Crystal Cruises, The Vintage Room (Our favorite)
The Vintage Room promotes wine education and the vast range of fine wines available on board Crystal’s Ultimate Vintage Room. Dinners are one-of-a-kind culinary experiences featuring some of the rarest wines in the world. They are only offered a few times each year on both Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony. Depending on the wines selected the exceptional dinners are priced at an estimated $1,000 per person. The first Ultimate Vintage Room Dinner was an eight-course French meal prepared by Master Chef André Soltner, former chef/owner of world-famous Lutèce, paired with, among others, a nearly impossible-to-get 1959 Château Lafite–Rothschild, Pauillac, Bordeaux and a Screaming Eagle 1996 from Napa Valley, considered its dream year.
