Celebrity Main Dining Room Menu for a 7 Day Cruise

Why It is Helpful to Know the Menu in Advance

Part of the fun and a daily activity can be heading to the restaurant to see the dinner menu. If you like to do that, please do not keep reading since it will spoil your fun. As experienced cruisers who do not want to miss a good dinner but also may want to go to a specialty restaurant (extra charge for dining), it is helpful to know the menu a day or weeks in advance so you can choose when the main dining room menu looks less interesting to you and when to book a specialty restaurant.

You may want to make a reservation before you board before your preferred dining times get filled or want to ensure you can go to the restaurant before the reservations get filled. It is also helpful to know the main dining room menu when planning your shore excursions or sea days to determine if you want to skip the dining room and book a specialty restaurant since they are usually open half an hour later, 9:30 pm.

For the actual menu for your cruise, download the Celebrity app to your phone, under Dining, then Main Dining, you can see the menu for each night. If you do not like the menu for a night, you can try another restaurant if you are on Celebrity Edge/Apex for free, go to the Oceanview Cafe buffet or eat an early dinner at Mast Grill for free, order room service, or reserve a specialty restaurant.

What You Need to Know About Celebrity Dining Menus

The main dining room menu is standard across most Celebrity ships depending on the number of days in the cruise. The dinner menus below was from the Celebrity Reflection in April 2022,  updated for Edge December 2022, updated for Solstice February 2023, then Beyond March 2023. I have made a note “* Not on Feb 2023 *” to show when an appetizer or entree is no longer included based on the changes Celebrity made in January 2023 to their menus.  I did this changed based on the February Solstice sailing, so I expect the item will remain off all menus across all ships for future cruisings unless Celebrity changes their menu based on guest feedback.

The Celebrity Eclipse, Equinox, Silhouette, Solstice, etc. dining room menus will be the same irrespective of where they are sailing (Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, South America). The menus for a particular sailing may occur on different days. For example, day 1 was the menu for Celebrity Reflection, a March – April sailing but the same menu occurred on day 6 for Celebrity Solstice in May. The Solstice day 1 menu was the same as the day 7 Reflection menu.

Celebrity does not have formal nights, but “Chic Nights” which encourage you to dress up in your dressier clothes, get pictures taken, and have a slightly fancier menu.  These are normally the Sea days and are spaced apart.   For 7 and 10 day cruises, there are are normally two Chic nights and only the second night features a lobster tail.  In January 2023, Celebrity started charging for each additional lobster tail after the first complementary one.

For the main dining room dinner menus below, the “Timeless Appetizers” and “Timeless Entrees” are the same every night of the cruise and are offered each evening. For Celebrity Edge and Apex ships, they are called “Classic Appetizers” and “Classic Entrees.” Since these items are available for the entire cruise each night, they were my third choice on Celebrity Edge/Apex class of ships. the “Celebrity Signatures” section of the menu (appetizers, entrees, desserts) changes each night, so these were my first choice since I was not going to be able to get it again during the trip.  The “Celebrity Exclusive” section is specific to Celebrity Edge/Apex class ships since they have multiple main dining rooms. They feature the specific cuisines based on the dining room and do not change each night. These were my second choice, since we could only get the dish if we came back to that dining room.  I omitted the desserts that change every night.

Celebrity Main Dining Room Timeless Appetizers Menu

Timeless or Classic Starters (same for each day and across all Edge, Apex, Beyond restaurants)

  • Classic “Caesar” Salad – hearts of romaine, garlic croutons, Parmesan cheese
  • Chilled Shrimp Cocktail – classic cocktail sauce
  • Baked French Onion Soup – herb croutons, melted Gruyere chese
  • Escargots a la Bourguignonne -snails, shallots, garlic, parsley, pernod butter

  • Broiled Salmon – served plain or with classic hollandaise sauce, mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables
  • Grilled Chicken Breast – garden thyme jus, mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables
  • Grilled New York Sirloin Steak – beurre Maitre d’Hotel, mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables

Timeless or Classic Desserts (same for each day)

Cosmopolitan, Normandie, Tuscan, and Cyprus Menus

The third section of the Celebrity Edge and Apex is the “Exclusive” menu section associated with the regional specialties offered at each of themed main dining rooms: Cosmopolitan, Tuscan, Normandie, and Cyprus. They stay the same for the entire voyage and do not change. I have heard, but not verified, that you can order the dishes at other restaurants. I think this could be true if the main dining restaurant is on the same floor. For example, on Celebrity Edge, Cosmopolitan and Cyprus are on deck 4 and likely share the same kitchen. Normandie and Tuscan are on deck 3.

The Beyond ship has different exclusive menu offerings than the Edge and Apex ships, so you will see my notes “(not on Beyond)” or “(on Beyond).”

If you really love something from the Celebrity Signature menu, it is best to order it since it will not be offered again. For the restaurant exclusive menus, as long as you come back to the restaurant, you can order the dishes again.

Cosmopolitan restaurant features American dishes with global influences. It has a modern, sleek, bright interior with an impressive floor to ceiling wine refrigerator.

Normandie restaurant is an upscale French restaurant in soothing Cherry blossom pink tones, wood from the Normandie restaurant on Celebrity Summit, and lovely glass vases and art.

Tuscan restaurant is the Italian restaurant with homemade pasta. The interoir features black and white bold patterns with black and yellow chairs.

Cyprus restaurant features Mediterranean and Greek dining with cream and blue tones.

What Times are the Main Dining Room, Buffet Times, and Specialty Restaurants Open?

The main dining room opens at 5:45 pm for the Early seating. Luminae for the Retreat suite guests and Blu for Aquaclass guests also open at 5:45 pm.

The main dining room is open 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm for the Celebrity Select Dine Anytime dining meaning if you have indicated on your cruise reservation dining seating time as “Anytime,” you can show up any time in when the restaurant is open to dine. Luminae and Blu also close at 9:00 pm. We try to avoid arriving at 8:55 pm, since the wait staff have been up since breakfast and would likely like to go to bed or to a great party at some point.

For other complimentary dining options, Oceanview Cafe, the buffet, is open 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm. Pizza and a limited selection of food is available until 1:00 am. The Mast Grill closes at 5:30 pm. Cafe al Bacio has desserts until 12:00 am (midnight).

Le Petit Chef dining room

Le Petit Chef Specialty
Restaurant

The specialty restaurant (additional charge) restaurants are open until 9:30 pm. Reservations are strongly recommended since they may not have availability if you just walk up. Examples include Murano, Tuscan Grill, Lawn Club Grill, and Sushi on Five. Le Petit Chef has certain showing of the animation timed with presentation of the dinner courses, so reservations are needed for that restaurant.

Tips on Getting a Discount at Specialty Restaurants

Celebrity normally offers 30% off at specialty restaurants for Day 1 or the evening you embark that you can book ahead of time using your cruise planner or when you get on-board, if there are any openings. A second way to get discounted specialty dining is to buy a package of dinners on the Celebrity website before you board or after you board, then book your reservation onboard the first day. A third way to get a discount is to talk to your main dining room waiter to see if their are any openings for the following night at a specific restaurant. If there are a lot of openings, you may be able to get 20 – 50% off for the next night.

Room Service Menu

Room service can be ordered for breakfast and all day. I like to order room service breakfast for the days we need to get off the ship. Put your hanging tag for breakfast on your outside door handle by 1:00 am the evening before. If you want cream or almond milk for your coffee, milk for your cereal or ketchup for your eggs/hashbrowns, you need to write it in.

For Soups and Starters: chicken noodle soup, soup of the day, chicken skewers with yogurt sauce, fruit plate.

Salads: Caesar salad, mixed green salad (balsamic, blue cheese, Caesar, Italian vinaigrette, or ranch dressing)

Entrees: hamburger and fries, penne primavera, seared salmon with vegetables, turkey club aandwich (bacon, lettuce, tomato, fries)

For guests staying in suites, room service is complimentary. For all other guests, Continental breakfast is complimentary, but all other orders have a $9.95 service charge plus 18% gratuity (new as of January 1, 2023).  

Room service is available 24 hours a day except the first day when it starts at 6:00 pm. Room service breakfast is not available on the last day that you disembark. It ends at 1:00 am.

Room Service Hours:  

Breakfast: 6:00 am – 9:30 am

All day: 11:00 am – 5:00 am


Captain’s Club Specialty Coffee Break

For guests who are Celebrity Captain’s Club Elite members or higher, one perk is a special breakfast each day in a specialty restaurant, such as Tuscan Grille on Solstice class ships and in Cosmopolitan Restaurant on Edge class ships. See the Captain’s Club brochure in your stateroom for your location on your ship.


We had skipped this perk for many cruises, because we thought “Why go there just for coffee?”  Actually, it features a lovely Continental breakfast (but no hot items like eggs, omeletes, bacon) but you can get a most filling Charcuterie platter with an assortment of cheeses, cold cuts, smoked salmon, mini-bagels), danishes and croissants, smoked salmon platter, and smoothies. It provides a more relaxing breakfast and lighter breakfast experience than the Oceanview Cafe.
