My wife and I are thinking about sailing on Celebrity and were wondering if the food is as good as we have heard? We have sailed on several different lines and prefer Royal Caribbean (diamond members). Over the past 20+ years of sailing we have seen the quality of food decrease from true gourmet to average chain restaurant quality on most lines (even though we truly enjoy RC their food is no exception, the quality has truly dropped). Is the food any better on Celebrity or is it on par with the other lines? Thanks for your help/opinions.
The cuisine on Celebrity certainly is very good and I find no fault with the quality of the food. The line has expanded its variety in recent years with the addition of pizza and pasta stations in the buffet area and theme buffets at lunch when the ship is at sea. Nonetheless, dinner in the main dining room is very, very French, with lots of fancy sauces. If you like French cuisine, you will be in seventh heaven. If you are not fond of French cuisine, you may find that the dinner menus grow old very quickly.
BTW, Celebrity consistently has excellent beef, lamb, pork, fowl, and shellfish. The regular fish selections are not consistent -- some are better than others.
