Adding to the ever-growing range of dining options available at sea, premium line Celebrity Cruises has introduced a first-rate high tea experience and a premium kosher food menu to its already large alternative dining experiences.
Offered once per seven-night sailing and at least twice on longer cruises, Celebrity Cruises’ ‘Champagne High Tea’ affair will take place in the line’s specialty restaurants for a $25 cover charge per person. All Celebrity’s cruise ships will offer the ‘Champagne High Tea’, including Celebrity Century when she arrives in Australia later this year, with the exception of the line’s expedition ship, Xpedition.
Guests will sip premium teas and coffees, and nibble dainty sandwiches and sweets served on Wedgewood china and Riedel Crystal, all while listening to a live string quartet.
Celebrity Cruises has also expanded its kosher offerings. Certified premium kosher meals, wine and Champagne are now offered throughout the fleet, for passengers who book the service 60 days in advance.
On the menu is herb-roasted salmon, BBQ chicken, beef brisket, citrus-glazed chicken breast plus, for breakfast there’s salmon and bagels, Belgian waffles, omelettes and pancakes.
“All selections are Glatt Kosher certified and made from scratch in kosher kitchens under the strict supervision of the O.U. and USDA. Celebrity’s premium kosher meals are available for a fee, and the line’s more limited, complimentary kosher selections will continue to be offered,” Celebrity Cruises said in a statement.
