Recommended Posts

Feb.22nd on Equinox... my wife and myself are both sushi enthusiasts, but when we make sushi's at home it's usually  created utilizing cooked or smoked fish. We don't like the idea of raw fish. Would these California rolls, as we called them in this part of the world, with cooked fish be available at the sushi @ 5 .. Also, we are into making our own wine, and we prefer it to most bought wines.(lower sulfites is main reason). Will it be possible to bring  2 bottles of "made at home wine" ?   Thanks

Not recent, several years ago. Next celebrity cruise is Sept 2020. Perhaps someone currently on board can confirm it hasn’t changed.  

Oh, its changed!
With the addition of sushi on 5, the buffet sushi is no longer.

you can get sushi to go (fee) from sushi on 5.

And as for the wine question, yes you can CARRY ON 2 bottles per stateroom.

To the OP, I would encourage you to try sushi made with fresh raw fish, and even some fresh sashimi, if you’ve never tried it but don’t like the idea of it. Honestly, I don’t think you can beat the clean fresh taste o fish prepared simply like this, with a little wasabi, some shoyu and some gari to clean the palette. Washed down with a nice chilled sake or crisp white wine.

 

It’s far better than a California roll, but you’ll never know if you don’t at least try.

Enjoy your cruise either way.

Not sure how 'fresh" the sushi on the ship is though.  I've tried it a couple of times and it's been mushy like it was frozen and thawd a few times too many.  I love good sushi/sashimi and have it at least once a week. I am fortunate to have a really nice place close to home that gets fresh fish from all over the world so I'm a bit spoiled. We get to try lots of unusual fish that you don't often see. Bluefin is still my favorite tough but Hirame (halibut) is a close second.  The OP really should try some "real" sushi or sashimi, when fresh it's fantastic (well most if it anyway). Sushi on 5 has some very good appitizers and the lobster ramen is good.  I've tried quite a few of the rolls most are ok but I don't think they are as good as any decent decent sushi bar on land will serve.  But they do have some great cocktails!

I would agree.

 

The appetizers and ramen were good, the rolls, frankly, were poor.

 

Edible but badly rolled and lacking in flavor. 
 

Unlikely we would eat there again, but there are so few choices on the M ships, so who knows...

Do you know if any Cruise Line Buffets, offer Sushi as part of the complementary dinning?
