Dining on board Celebrity Summit

Friday 5 April 2019

Our personal travel expert, Iain recently had the good fortune to spend two nights on board Celebrity Summit. One of the first ships to undergo its “Revolution”, Celebrity Summit has been given a full upgrade, including refurbished staterooms and suites, redesigned public spaces and, of course, revamped restaurants.

Iain was lucky enough to dine in two of the ship’s restaurants, Blu and the Tuscan Grille.

Blu is one of the ship’s exclusive restaurants that is only available to guests who have booked an AquaClass stateroom (find out more about Celebrity’s Suite Class here). There are many benefits to booking AquaClass and getting to dine at the beautiful Blu is certainly one of them. This intimate restaurant is much smaller than the main dining room and with plenty of tables for two, it’s perfect for couples seeking a relaxed and romantic atmosphere. It’s also the only restaurant on board Summit with its own gallery!

Soup at Blu

Health-conscious travellers, who may feel overwhelmed by the amount of rich food you sometimes find on cruise ships, will love Blu’s ethos. The food here is cooked in a healthy style, making it a lighter choice than some of the other dining experiences. But don’t let that fool you into thinking the menu here is lacking in flavour – Iain loved his velvet-smooth asparagus cream soup and his perfectly-cooked New York strip steak. One final tip from our expert: don’t skip dessert, Blu’s crème brulée is to die for!

Convivial Italian dining at Tuscan Grille

Tuscan Grille is one of Summit’s speciality restaurants. This warm and welcoming steakhouse celebrates everything there is to love about Italian hospitality. The mouth-watering menu is bursting with bold Italian flavours, bringing you the sun-drenched flavours of the Mediterranean. From delicious home-made pasta to perfectly dry-aged steaks, Tuscan Grille serves up timeless Italian classics, brining time-honoured tradition into the 21st century with a contemporary twist. Iain’s recommendation? Don’t neglect your starters! Iain found the appetiser menu so enticing that he had to choose two, and the pork belly and crispy calamari were the highlight of his meal. Make sure to have a chat with the restaurant’s friendly sommeliers, who will help you find the perfect wine to complement your dinner.

Antipasti and wine at Tuscan Grille

One aim of the “Celebrity Revolution” is to make sure every cruise is an exceptional culinary experience, and this is just a taste (pun intended) of the plethora of dining options available on board Celebrity Summit.
