Celebrity Cruises has launched a new high tea
experience called “Champagne High Tea”. The company is now also
offering guests premium kosher meals.
“We know how precious consumers’ vacation time
is, and we’re committed to offering an exceptional dining
experience to make those rare vacations even more special,” said
Celebrity’s Vice President of Culinary Operations Jacques Van
Staden. “Our Champagne High Tea is designed in the tradition of
the most highly regarded afternoon tea experiences in the world.”
Celebrity’s Champagne High Tea takes place once
on every seven-night sailing, and at least twice on an eight-night
or longer cruise.
Held in Celebrity’s specialty restaurants,
amidst live music performed by a string quartet, the event’s
selections include premium Forte teas; Lavazza coffees, including
expressos, lattes and cappuccino; savory sandwiches and desserts –
including pastries, scones, truffles and pate de fruit – all
served on Wedgewood china and in Riedel Crystal.
Celebrity’s Champagne High Tea cover charge of
$25 per person includes all culinary selections and a glass of
champagne. Reservations for Celebrity’s Champagne High Tea can be
made onboard by dialing the ship’s “dining reservation” number.
The experience – in addition to the line’s
longtime, complimentary tea service in the main dining room – is
offered across the Celebrity fleet, with the exception of
Celebrity Xpedition, the line’s megayacht sailing year-round in
the Galapagos Islands.
Meanwhile, for guests that request kosher meals,
Celebrity now has a wide selection to choose from. Among
Celebrity’s premium kosher entrees are herb-roasted salmon, BBQ
quartered chicken, beef brisket, citrus-glazed chicken breast, and
citrus glazed tilapia, while breakfast items include traditional
lox and bagels, Belgian waffles, wild mushroom omelettes, or
Kosher wines and champagne also are available.
All selections are Glatt Kosher certified and
made from scratch in kosher kitchens under the strict supervision
of the O.U. and USDA. Celebrity’s premium kosher meals are
available for a fee, and the line’s more limited, complimentary
kosher selections will continue to be offered.
Vacationers interested in kosher meals must
notify Celebrity of their interest 60 days in advance of
departure. Guests participating in the premium kosher program then
can make their specific menu selections for each day onboard, 24
hours in advance of dining.
Guests with bookings on any Celebrity vacation
should submit requests for kosher meals, or any special dietary
needs, in advance of their cruise.
