Here, in no particular order, are 10 of the best
1 Celebrity Cruises
Celebrity ships have a boutique hotel ambience and the speciality restaurants reflect the tastes of their clientele. Tuscan Grille boasts stunning views and authentic Italian dishes, while AquaClass guests can enjoy “clean cuisine” spa restaurant Blu. French speciality restaurant Murano is perfect for a romantic tête-à-tête, and also offers an excellent Champagne afternoon tea, complete with three-piece orchestra. Or you can try the Five Senses experience, which combines tastes and aromas with wines from across the globe.
But the pièce de résistance has to be Qsine, available on six of the fleet. Menus are iPads, and dishes include sushi lollipops, lava crab (above) and chocolate-covered strawberries served on grass. Celebrity also has an extensive wine collection, with over 500 different wines on offer in the Solstice Class and the Millennium Class ships, food-and-wine pairing events and opportunities to visit the vineyards of France, Spain and Portugal on dedicated Food and Wine cruises.
