  1. I assume they mean he was the chef at a restaurant that was awarded 2 stars. Just what I was told on the ship.
  2. I had dinner in Eden several weeks ago with 3 friends and we had a wonderful time. I was told the chef in Eden is a 2 star Michelin chef and since the kitchen is open to the dining room it was fun watching him and the other chefs prepare the food. If you have an adventurous spirit you will love Eden and the food. Some of the Eden charatures help serve the food and do little performances around you during dinner. If you engage them they are delightful to talk to and will explain their character as well as the others so their performance later that evening makes sense. I think Eden is a one time adventure for me unless I am traveling with others who had not experienced it.
  3. You can also request a check which will show a zero balance and can add a tip to it which will be deducted from your onboard account. This is what we do as we don’t always remember to carry cash.
  4. I’m sailing Equinox in a royal suite leaving this Saturday and received the email from the shoreside concierge this Monday. I called her back yesterday and gave her my requests. I had heard they can contact you anytime between 3 days to several weeks prior to your cruise.
  5. On my last cruise in January on Silhouette I recall the gf section of the buffet was pretty pitiful, but that could have just been on that ship. The pizza station will make you up a gf pizza if you ask, you’ll need to wait 15 minutes or so for it but it was decent. I also believe there is gluten free pasta available but I’ve never tried it. They also have gf bread available where they make the sandwiches. Celebrity suggests you speak to the head chef at the buffet who will guide you through what’s available. Other tidbits: The spa cafe had some gf breakfast bars in the morning which I enjoyed. Tuscan Grill had some really good focaccia bread which was a nice change. Coffee shop has gf cookies but they are coconut so not everybodys taste.
  6. I have been on 5 or 6 Celebrity cruises in Aqua class so have eaten gf in Blu. If you go to dinner around the same time each night they try to give you the same waiter team which makes it easier, but in any case just let the waiters know you must eat gluten free and they will let you know what you can have and what they can modify for you. When I’ve had the same waiters each night they would have my gf bread waiting for me. I’ve never had a problem eating gf in Blu.
