Private Dining at Sea
Dining is always special on a luxury cruise, but those guests who want to take it up a notch or two will not have to look too far away on their favorite cruise lines to snag a private dining experience with amazingly attentive staff and fabulous wines. Enjoy Crystal Cruises The Vintage Room (available on both Crystal Symphony and Serenity) can hold up to 12-14 people very comfortably. One or two couples can even arrange a private dinner in the Vintage Room. The experience can be completely customized. Guests can meet the sommelier before the dinner and choose wines that correlate to the places and/or vintages that are special to them and the chef will design a menu around those choices. On Oceania Cruises' new Riviera and sister Marina, Privee's dining room can be reserved for up to 10 guests who can select any number of courses from Toscana, Polo Grill, or a combination of both. Privee can be reserved for $250.00. Wine and other alcoholic beverages are an additional cost. The decor is one of the main attractions. Privee is opulently decorated with Ferrari Red carpeting, oversized white baby crocodile chairs, ornate Baroque millwork, and backlit onyx-clad walls. A custom-made oval table illuminated by a white Venini glass chandelier is the centerpiece of the room. Regent Seven Seas Cruises offers in-suite dining on their ships. Guests can select from an extensive room service menu and during normal dining hours, guests may also order from the Compass Rose menu, which changes daily and features continental, vegetarian, kosher and Canyon Ranch Spa Club cuisines. Dinner will be served in your suite course by course. Private meals onboard Seabourn are extraordinary. Private meals ordered from The Restaurant menu and served in suite or on the verandah are a standard feature of Seabourn cruises. In addition, special private or semi-private arrangements are frequently made for guests celebrating special occasions. Recently, a captain and hotel director hosted an alfresco dinner for four to celebrate the guest's birthday on board Seabourn Spirit. Seabourn staff is empowered to create exceptional event (aka Seabourn Moments) for guests during their cruise. Silverseas Cruises has the only Relais & Chateaux restaurant at sea. At Le Champagne, dishes are created in collaboration with the master chefs of Relais & Chateaux. Here, guests can select from a gourmet menu of regionally inspired dishes in an intimate setting. The venue can be booked by guests for an exclusive or private gathering. For $1,500 a maximum of 12 guests can enjoy a private pre-dinner canape party with exclusive Relais & Chateaux hors d' oeuvres, wine pairing and after dinner drinks from Silversea's connoisseur beverage selection.
