What sets Celebrity apart from other vacation choices today is the cruise line's passionate dedication to providing guests with a cruise experience that exceeds expectations. This extraordinary performance level has become the definition of Celebrity Cruises, and has set the worldwide standard for today's expression of what first made cruising famous -- high quality, superior design, spacious accommodations, grand style, attentive service and exceptional cuisine.
The excellence of Celebrity's existing cruise product continues with the cruise line's Millennium-class ships, which embody even greater technical achievement and meaningful innovation, while retaining the distinctive style, sophistication and service elements that have become the hallmark of a Celebrity cruise.
Our exceptional level of personal service, award-winning cuisine, world-famous amenities and accommodations that are the most spacious at sea, not only ensure an unforgettable cruise experience, but forge a lasting relationship between ourselves and our guests.
It's no surprise then that Celebrity guests and the travel press, such as Condé Nast Traveler, consistently rate Celebrity Cruises as one of the world's finest cruise lines. Experience for yourself what sets Celebrity apart.
Let Celebrity tantalize your palate with award-winning cuisine. Prepared by world-renowned chefs, culinary delights are made from scratch using only the finest, fresh ingredients.
From casual eateries like the AquaSpa Café serving light, healthy fare to specialty restaurants where meals are prepared tableside, there are choices sure to please those with even the most discerning tastes.
Enjoy indoor dining in our smoke-free environments or outdoor dining poolside. Aboard Celebrity, the choice is yours.
As you enter Celebrity's main dining room, crystal glasses, exquisite china and gleaming silverware shine in anticipation. A dramatic setting for any meal, this elegant dining room features an endless array of cuisine including breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Perfectly presented and incredibly delicious, Celebrity cuisine is not only abundant, it is prepared following the highest culinary standards.
On a Celebrity ship, casual dining is just as special and enjoyable as formal dining. While casual dining may include a relaxing poolside grill, the Sushi café or complimentary 24-hour room service, the experience, flavor and attention to detail remain unmatched.
When you opt for a casual-dining setting, a casual dress code applies.

Murano Restaurant onboard Century
Adorned with magnificent chandeliers handcrafted of radiant Murano glass, the Century's "Murano" specialty restaurant, named for the island of Murano near Venice, Italy, where glass-blowing has been a fine art and tradition since the 13th century, is reminiscent of the subtle charm and timeless beauty of one of the world's most romantic cities.
A hand-painted mural at the end of the 66-seat venue displays whimsical silhouettes depicting an enchanting tale of travel and adventure, while a large, round granite medallion composed of jewel-toned stone resembles the antique paving of medieval European cities and creates the feeling of an Italian piazza.
The menu, cuisine and service for Murano will follow the celebrated style of Celebrity's Millennium-class specialty restaurants, which presented the industry's first tableside cooking, carving and flambé and will feature delectable menu selections such as Saltimbocca Alla Romana and Steak Diane.
The RMS Olympic Restaurant aboard Millennium
Entering transatlantic passenger service in 1911, the RMS Olympic embodied the opulence and grandeur historic ocean liners are known for. Asked to be of service in World War I, RMS Olympic earned the name "Old Reliable" for her wartime heroics.
The RMS Olympic Restaurant transports guests back in time where they can marvel at original paneling from the RMS Olympic while they savor the rich, creamy flavor of Goat Cheese Soufflé with Tomato Coulis complemented by a glass of vintage sauvignon blanc.
Featuring tableside service, a demonstration kitchen and a dine-in wine cellar, the RMS Olympic Restaurant provides a classic taste of luxury, elegance and culinary delight.
SS United States Restaurant aboard Infinity
Establishing a new speed record for transatlantic crossing in 1952, the SS United States made its mark in history. Its namesake, the SS United States Restaurant, makes its mark upon Celebrity guests with its exquisite décor - featuring actual glass panels from the original ship - and tantalizing cuisine.
An entrée first served in the dining room onboard the original SS United States is prepared for twenty-first century guests. Roast Long Island Duckling a l'Orange Stuffed with Fruit is just one of a host of intriguing menu selections diners will savor in this Specialty Restaurant.
SS Normandie Restaurant aboard Summit
Furnished with outstanding art deco fittings by the era's best-known French designers, the SS Normandie was considered the ultimate ocean liner of her day. Winning the prestigious Blue Riband award for speed in North Atlantic crossings five times over, she was the first ocean liner to exceed 1,000 feet.
Summit's Normandie Restaurant provides guests with an elegant, alternative dining experience with menu selections inspired by the Normandy region of France, such as Flambéed Scampi flamed in Armagnac accompanied by a 1999 Chassagne Montrachet Chardonnay.
Ocean Liners Restaurant aboard Constellation
Heralding the inception of Art Deco design into shipbuilding, the Ile de France launched a new era in 1927. Her design combining European tradition and modern décor is reflected in the Ocean Liners Restaurant. Showcasing a number of rare artifacts, this unique restaurant will whisk you back in time to an age of post-war jubilance and glamorous innovation.
Dining in the style of the great transatlantic passenger ships of the mid-twentieth century, guests enjoy such delicacies as Rack of Lamb en Croute complemented by a vintage burgundy.
Perhaps a day of kayaking, shopping or golfing has you feeling pleasantly languid - or was it the afternoon spent relaxing with a novel that has you so serene? Either way, when you're in the mood to relax and dine in the comfort of your stateroom, Celebrity offers complimentary 24-hour in-stateroom dining. Count on the same personal service and delicious cuisine you've come to expect from Celebrity.

Like a lot of people, a trip to Alaska was something we both had wanted to do for quite some time. However fitting it in was difficult. Sarah from Quay Travel managed that very efficiently. What to me was proving frustrating, sometimes there are too many options, was to Sarah, not a problem. She found for us a cruise which suited our timing, and then arranged the best flight options to get us to Seattle. YES - we thought that is all organised, however we had decided to sort out our shore excursions . For what ever reason the cruise line’s web site did not like me. A Quay Cruise staff member willingly took us under her care and quickly sorted matters out for us. My wife and I are very pleased to say that everything on our trip which was organised here in NZ by Quay Cruise happened when and as it should. Our thanks to Sarah and her Team - the hassle is taken out of travelling.
When we returned from Alaska I said to my husband we would never be going on another cruise - because nothing could beat that experience. Perfect in every way, excellently chosen accommodation and smooth transitions. Thanks Quay Cruise.
It’s a long way from Auckland to Alaska and return. That’s why you need the best Travel Agent to plan your cruise; find the perfect ship for you and deliver you home again. Michelle and the team are the best in the biz. We wouldn’t go further than NZ without them. Now, where to next?
We first met Margaret when one of our grandsons attended the same daycare centre as her daughter. Since that time we have been fortunate in having Margaret take care of the planning for the cruises we have sailed on. She always pays attention to every detail in helping us plan our holidays and in particular her knowledge with regard to cruises means that we know we are getting the best deal and service available. She goes that extra mile to ensure every holiday is special.
