Celebrity Cruises’ ongoing commitment to provide its suite-level guests with a truly exclusive and unique experience, which they have named “Suite Class”, has taken another major step forward. Celebrity recently unveiled the dedicated restaurant “Luminae”, debuting fleet-wide in April.
Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner daily for Celebrity’s Suite Class guests, Luminae–as its name suggests –is inspired by the essence of light. Luminae’s interiors will feature warm and inviting earth-tone finishes and carpeting, elegant upholstery and stylish lighting, setting the stage for a one-of-a-kind culinary experience.
Newly-designed menus, featuring an eclectic array of unique dishes, specially conceived by Celebrity’s team of chefs, will include locally sourced and seasonal ingredients from the regions in which each vessel will be cruising, offering the finest fare from each destination, across all seven continents. Individual dishes will be offered only once during a two-week cruise duration, ensuring a wide selection of choices for guests vacationing on longer itineraries.
Celebrity’s James Beard-featured Executive Chef, John Suley, remarked, “The menus will be exquisite and guests can choose from dishes such as caviar and crème fraîche, a creamy black truffle risotto with fricassee of wild mushrooms and Parmigiano-Reggiano and a côte de bœuf with roasted root vegetables and béarnaise sauce. The handcrafted desserts will provide the sweetest ending, and a favorite of mine is the mascarpone cheesecake and pistachio nougatine with yuzu brown butter and apricot sorbet. Every menu has been precisely designed with our guests’ varied palates in mind, and we hope they will love our informal, luxury dining experience.”
A wine list of more than 400 choices, specially selected for Luminae guests, will be maintained, with specific menu pairing recommendations made by the restaurant’s dedicated head sommelier.
Luminae will also feature tableside preparation of signature dishes, such as is found presently in Celebrity’s specialty restaurant, Murano. Additionally, an all-new gourmet chocolates and dessert cart will present guests with a tempting assortment of sweet selections.
Suite guests are in for a real treat when Luminae makes its stunning debut. An evening featuring pre-dinner cocktails at Michael’s Club, followed by an exceptional fine dining experience at Luminae, will surely draw suite-level clientele from competitive lines, as Celebrity Cruises delivers tremendous value in this ultra-premium experience known as Suite Class.
