Celebrity Cruises has introduced two more F&B concepts onboard its fleet of liners. The company will now offer a ‘Champagne High Tea’ experience, and industry-first premium kosher meals.
“We know how precious consumers’ vacation time is, and we’re committed to offering an exceptional dining experience to make those rare vacations even more special,” said Celebrity’s Vice President of Culinary Operations, Jacques Van Staden. “Our Champagne High Tea is designed in the tradition of the most highly regarded afternoon tea experiences in the world.”
Celebrity’s Champagne High Tea takes place once on every seven-night sailing, and at least twice on an eight-night or longer cruise. Held in Celebrity’s specialty restaurants, with live music performed by a string quartet, the high tea includes premium Forte teas; Lavazza coffees, including espressos, lattes and cappuccino, savory sandwiches and desserts including pastries, scones, truffles and pate de fruit, all served on Wedgewood china and in Riedel Crystal. The Champagne High Tea cover charge of US$25 per person includes all culinary selections and a glass of champagne.
Meanwhile, Celebrity has introduced premium kosher meals. The menu of kosher meals includes entrees such as herb-roasted salmon, BBQ quartered chicken, beef brisket, citrus-glazed chicken breast, and citrus-glazed tilapia, while breakfast items include traditional lox and bagels, Belgian waffles, wild mushroom omelettes, or pancakes. Kosher wines and champagne also are available,
The premium kosher meals are available for a fee, and the line’s more limited, complimentary kosher selections will continue to be offered.
