Ship Highlights

Culinary Delights

GOURMET CUISINE AND WINE

Creativity, quality, ambiance, choices, and gracious, anticipatory service are the principles behind Crystal's extraordinary culinary success. Choices are key elements of the Crystal dining experience, rich in menus and venues.

From the Simple Pleasures of Afternoon Tea to International Cuisine from Celebrity Restaurateurs

The classic dining experience, with two seatings each evening, is further personalized by European-trained wait staff that is familiar with a guest's every preference, whether it is for sparkling or still water or on the exact degree of preparation of a filet mignon.

Available for every meal are selections from the impressive wine cellars - offering a list with over 230 wines and as many as 20,000 bottles. A new "Reserve Wine List" offers such rare vintages as 1959 Château Lafite Rothschild or 1971 Château Petrus. In addition to the great wines of California, Italy, and France, choices include excellent selections from Austria, Chile, Spain, and Australia.

Building on its reputation for excellence and innovation in the culinary arts, Crystal Cruises has also created its own proprietary label called C Wines, featuring six appellations including three reserve and three premium selections of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Merlot.

No shipboard experience would be complete without the many opportunities to enjoy a snack before lunch, dinner or bedtime. In keeping with this time-honored tradition, Crystal Symphony offers many exceptional dining venues for casual meals, snacks and afternoon tea.

 

Dining Venues

Crystal Dining Room

Warmly decorated with rich wood paneling, brass railing, crystal chandeliers, and floor-to-ceiling windows, the grand Crystal Dining Room is one of the most elegant dining facilities at sea. Sophisticated décor is enhanced by the finest of tabletop appointments, including Schott Zwiesel crystal, Villeroy & Boch china, Sambonet and Elkington silver, and Frette or Garnier linens.

Innovative menus boast a variety of international specialties, special dietary meals, regionally inspired dishes based on the itinerary, and tableside preparation of such classics as Caesar Salad, Chateaubriand and Crepes Suzette. Guests will also enjoy caviar and fresh fish, including lobster and salmon, as well as a comprehensive selection of international wines and champagnes chosen from the most extensive wine cellars at sea. Remarkably, the Crystal Dining Room never repeats a menu, even during the three-and-a-half month long World Cruises.

The Lido Café

For casual meals, this indoor/outdoor venue features elaborate breakfast buffets with exotic fruit, fresh-baked breads and pastries, as well as made-to-order regular and egg white omelets, waffles, and pancakes; luncheon buffets include custom-made pastas and salads, a delicious selection of soups, carved meats, fresh fish, and sumptuous desserts, including sugar-free options.

Trident Bar & Grill

This ultimate grill with a full bar serves the Late-Risers Breakfast from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and tasty poolside fare including grilled hot dogs, made-to-order hamburgers, veggie and chicken burgers, tuna melts, two different wrap sandwiches each day, and gourmet pizzas.

Selvaggio's innovative new food concept, "The Best Young Chefs of Italy," taps future culinary stars such as Ciccio Sultano of Sicily's II Duomo Restaurant and Walter Ferreto of Cascinalenuovo in The Piedmont, who come aboard to train Crystal's chefs on their regionally inspired menus that are presented at Prego.

Silk Road & The Sushi Bar

Silk Road restaurant features the eclectic cuisine of famed master chef Nobuyuki "Nobu" Matsuhisa with dishes prepared by Nobu-trained chefs.

While The Sushi Bar offers an assortment of Nobu's signature sushi and sashimi, including Salmon Tartar with Sevruga Caviar, Tiradito Nobu-style, and Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, Silk Road presents more than two dozen of Nobu's signature appetizers, soups, salads, entrées and desserts.

The dinners are offered several times each cruise for approximately $180+ per person, depending on the wines chosen.

Ultimate Vintage Room Dinner is a one-of-a-kind luxury dining experience featuring some of the rarest wines in the world. The first eight-course French dinner was prepared by Master Chef André Soltner, former chef/owner of world-famous Lutèce, paired with, among others, a nearly impossible-to-get 1959 Château Lafite - Rothschild, Pauillac, Bordeaux and a Screaming Eagle 1996 from Napa Valley, considered its dream year. The Ultimate Vintage Room Dinners are held a few times per year on Crystal Symphony, and are priced at $1,000 per person.
