Celebrity Cruises Adds New Culinary Experiences, Expands Restaurants
New culinary experiences include the Concierge Class luncheon, culinary-focused shore excursions and Chef's Market Discoveries. Here's the latest on what travelers can expect.
Celebrity’s Concierge Class: A new class with an exclusive Concierge Class Luncheon at the start of each sailing, showcasing menus crafted by Celebrity’s Michelin-starred chef, Cornelius Gallagher. Additionally, Concierge Class guests receive fresh fruit and sparkling wine upon arrival, and complimentary Daily Delectable Delights delivered every afternoon.
