Celebrity Cruises Set to Season Its Fleet with New Luminae Restaurant
Celebrity Cruises has an entirely new restaurant coming to its fleet exclusively for Suite Class guests – Luminae. Beginning in April, the new dining venue will serve destination-inspired premium dishes made from locally-sourced seasonal ingredients such as caviar and crème fraîche.
Luminae is “inspired by the essence of light, exceptional food, wine and luxury,” according to Celebrity. The new venue will be rolled out fleet-wide, except on Celebrity Xpedition and soon-to-retire Celebrity Century, but there is no word yet as to where it will be specifically positioned onboard the line’s Millennium- and Solstice-class ships.
“Everything about Luminae embodies an inspirational culinary journey for our guests. We want them to savor soulful, technique-driven cuisine, while enjoying warm and personalized service in a relaxed, stylish setting,” said John Suley, James Beard-featured Celebrity Cruises executive chef.
Speaking to the wide variety of offerings, no menu item will be repeated during a two-week cruise, and the culinary experience extends to table-side preparation, a gourmet chocolates and desserts cart, and a choice of 400 international wines. Luminae will be available to suite guests complimentarily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Dish highlights will include a creamy black truffle risotto with fricassee of wild mushrooms and Parmigiano-Reggiano, côte de bœuf with roasted root vegetables and béarnaise sauce, as well as mascarpone cheesecake and pistachio nougatine with yuzu brown butter and apricot sorbet.
