Celestyal Cruises offers a range of dining options on board, both casual & more formal. Your cruise package includes three wholesome meals as well as afternoon tea every day. Breakfast is served buffet style and buffet and à la carte menus are available for lunch and dinner. Meals are cooked on-board by the ship’s chefs and feature fresh Mediterranean ingredients. When the sun’s shining brightly, there’s casual al fresco dining on deck as well as room service (at an extra cost), so you can choose exactly how and when you want to eat. Most days mealtimes are not set, so you’re welcome to sit down and enjoy your meal at any time you please. However, on other days there may be two sittings, please speak with your group facilitator on which sitting time you would prefer. Outside your four meals a day a 24 hour snack menu is available at an extra cost. Additionally, if you are looking to enhance your dining experience, specialty menus are available in the ship’s restaurant which feature both Greek and international dishes with wine pairing to enhance your stay on board. These are at an additional cost
Three excursions are included as part of your holiday price. Please see your itinerary for those included. These have been handpicked for you from among the most popular excursions on that cruise. Additional excursions (at an extra cost) are available to book onboard the ship upon arrival at the shore excursions reception desk.
For your cruise, casual and comfortable is suitable anytime during the day, in the buffet and in the restaurants. Swimwear is acceptable at the buffet and outdoor restaurant, but a shirt or a cover-up and footwear are required. If you are having dinner in the main dining rooms, smart casual is required. During your cruise there will be a Gala Dinner and Captain’s Cocktail party which is the perfect opportunity to get dressed up for an evening of cocktails, fine dining and great entertainment. Celestyal Cruises asks that that you attend in formal dress: a cocktail dress or something smart for ladies; jacket and tie for men. For the land portion and shore excursions we suggest firm walking shoes and weather appropriate layered clothing. Please note: Since your suitcases are collected on the last night of your cruise, don't forget an overnight bag for necessary medication, documents, phone charger and need-to-have items.
