There is no better way to experience the raw beauty and untamed majesty of Alaska than with Celebrity Cruises, especially on the award-winning Celebrity Millennium. Celebrity Millennium provides top-notch amenities, excellent customer service, and enchanting shore excursions on your Alaska cruise. The ship also provides culinary delights crafted by world-class chefs, and inspired by and sourced from the regions the ship visits. With nine unique restaurants to choose from (all menus are posted daily on Celebrity’s app, making it helpful in deciding where to dine), prepare to indulge in Celebrity Millennium’s mouthwatering cuisine as you sail the icy waters of Alaska.
The Main Restaurant
Dining in the “airy and contemporary” Main Restaurant provides an upscale refined dining experience where a Michelin-starred chef curates a diverse menu of globally-inspired dishes. The two-floor restaurant serves a selection of ever-changing classic and contemporary options, which promise a delightful culinary journey, complemented by legendary service.
Global dining destination Oceanview Café is the ultimate dining destination for foodies. More than a buffet, Oceanview Café offers food curated by word-class chefs. It’s perfect for those who love variety and want to try a little of everything. Oceanview serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is open late for those like myself, who crave a midnight snack.
If dining al fresco is what you desire, Mast Grill is for you. Enjoy the open air as you feast on gourmet food in a relaxed poolside environment. Located on the deck, Mast Grill is perfect for feeding your hunger on your break from sunbathing or relaxing in the hot tub.
The Spa Café
Celebrity was one of the first cruise lines to offer a spa restaurant. Here you can experience a refreshing array of healthy delights that are flavorful and nourishing for both your body and mind. Open for breakfast and lunch, expect hearty meals rich in vitamins and nutrients, like oatmeal, açaí bowls, salads, avocado toast, soups, and fresh fruit. The Spa Café is ideal for a post workout snack or pre-spa meal. Here’s a tip, grab your food and eat it in one of the solarium lounge chairs, perfect for relaxing or whale watching.
Celebrity Millennium also has three specialty restaurants, modern Italian Tuscan Grille, sushi bistro Sushi On Five, and Le Petit Chef.
Tuscan Grille offers a captivating blend of rustic elegance and contemporary minimalism, providing guests with a vibrant and sophisticated dining experience. The menu boasts iconic Italian dishes with a modern twist, featuring handmade pastas, artisanal salumi, fish, butcher-cut meats, and USDA Prime dry-aged steaks, while the regional Italian wine selection, authentic cocktails, and beers complement the delightful flavors.
Sushi On Five
Since its debut, Sushi On Five has garnered immense popularity by fulfilling your desire for locally sourced and authentically prepared sushi and Japanese delicacies, curated by the renowned restaurateur and sushi chef, Yoshikazu “Yoshi” Okada. Relish the intricate flavors of hand-crafted sushi rolls and nigiri, showcasing tuna albacore, shrimp, eel, and other delectable choices, or savor the pureness of yellowtail, salmon, and octopus sashimi. Complete your culinary journey with the must-try caramelized gingerbread accompanied by wasabi gelato for an unforgettable dessert.
Le Petit Chef
Prepare to witness a visual spectacle unlike any other with Le Petit Chef. From the minds of the world-renown artists of Skullmapping, this experience takes the “dinner and a show” concept to new heights by bringing your table to life. Le Petit Chef will take you on a culinary journey through a beautifully choreographed dining experience complemented by an elegant menu crafted by a Michelin Star Chef. Bon appétit!
Celebrity Millennium also has two restaurants exclusively for The Retreat and AquaClass members.
The Retreat members are welcome to dine in Luminae, a modern eclectic restaurant exclusively for them. Luminae invites guests to immerse themselves in a fresh gastronomic journey every day, as each menu is uniquely crafted and available only once.
Solely for AquaClass guests, Blu is described by Celebrity Cruises as being, “intimately elegant, yet fresh and modern… with vibrant, crisp, and bold flavors.” My favorite restaurant onboard the Millennium, Blu is outstanding. Each meal will awaken your taste buds and satisfy your every craving.
Cheers to Millennium’s Beverage Program
The Millennium also caters to the cocktail and wine enthusiast, with menus offering a “diverse selection of classics, the latest trends, craft beers, and a wine selection that is unsurpassed.” Complement your meal with one of the ship’s robust wines from their award-winning wine program (having won 100 Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence and 9 Best of Awards of Excellence – the most ever awarded in the cruise industry). Cheers!
