Crystal Cruises is expanding its fine dining options with Perfect Choice Dining, adding greater flexibility and choices. Open dining by reservation will be offered in the Crystal Dining Room, in addition to Classic Main Seating and Classic Late Seating.
Choices are key elements of the Crystal dining experience, rich in menus and venues. Elaborate, four- or five-course menus are presented daily in several settings. The grand Crystal Dining Room features international cuisine and regionally inspired dishes based on the itinerary, and never repeats a menu, even on a 100-plus day World Cruise. This classic dining experience is offered twice nightly. With the most extensive wine cellars at sea (some 20,000 bottles), Crystal offers guests a comprehensive choice of wines, plus a new reserve list of 20 rare vintages. Further, the intimate Vintage Rooms play host to the ultimate gourmet experiences with the first-ever at-sea Wine-Makers dinners.
Lido Café features a casual ambiance with breathtaking ocean views, and the buffet-style indoor/outdoor café offers both Early- and Late-Riser Breakfast, as well as late-morning bouillon service and luncheon buffets.
Daytime snacks, a lunchtime hamburger/hot dog grill, sandwiches, specialty burgers and a full bar are available at the Trident Bar & Grill.
In addition to the main Crystal Dining Room, there are two specialty restaurants and Room Service available 24 hours. Leave your formal wear in the closet and dine in your bathrobe and slippers, if you wish, with a full selection of delectable dishes from your In-Suite & In-Stateroom Dining menu.
This is a special event at Crystal Cruises. Each Tea presents a selection of savories and sweets served daily in the sun-lit charm of the Palm Court. Their "Mozart Tea" is a visit to 18th-century Vienna you are greeted by staff dressed in velvets and brocades and are tempted by a selection of the finest cakes and pastries Austria has ever made. Their English Colonial Tea offers a taste of tradition, complete with scones and clotted cream, finger sandwiches and other assorted sweets. The American Tea is a Crystal creation paying tribute to the classics of the American summertime.
A selection of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres are served in the various bars and lounges every evening before the dinner hour.
