We had to book it through Normandie when they invited us during our meal there one evening. I understood there were 2 nights this event took place during our 7 night cruise. We went on the second seating which fell on the last formal night (2nd to last night of cruise)

The meal was in the main Galley at a round table off to the side of all the hustle/bustle and next to the Chef's office space.

There were a total of 6 at the dinner (3 men, 3 women) and it was one course after another with wine paired with each course. Entrees were 2 choices although the chef threw in a 3rd choice of lobster tail for those interested. Funny the 3 women chose the lobster and the 3 men chose the steak.

And after dessert course, the chef then took fresh hot cookies out of the oven ( I watched him do it) and brought those to the table in case we had not had enough...lol

After the meal the ladies were presented with roses from the chef and autographed personalized cookbooks (be aware these books are VERY heavy/large and packing/carrying them takes stamina and luggage space).

We are glad we took part in this event and may repeat it in the distant future if we have room in luggage/carryon to transport the cookbook.

It was $279 for 2 on our cruise, just looked at statement, sorry for the delay. It is by invite only btw...I was reminded of this caveat.

Had to turn down Captain's invite since we did not pack formal wear on this trip...not even a tie, it was a very relaxing trip. I did pack a sportcoat however.

Thanks for the information....it might have been invitation only and you were
invited.....I could still ask about it.

ABSOLUTELY, I encourage it and would've asked had the invite not surfaced first.

Thanks for posting this. We are first time Celebrity and have booked a Royal suite for a b/b/b so the review was most appreciated.
