Introducing Celebrity Select Dining

Now Available to
Pre-Reserve Online Fleetwide

Celebrity Cruises Announces Flexible Dinner Option
Starting this Fall

Celebrity Select Dining is a new flexible dining option that allows you to choose when you dine on a day by day basis. You’ll still be seated in the ship’s main dining room, order from the same dinner menu, and enjoy the same amazing service that you’re accustomed to onboard Celebrity Cruises, but with more flexibility.

Once you’ve chosen Celebrity Select Dining in your reservation, you can make your day by day reservations pre-cruise, reserve once onboard or simply come to the dining room whenever you’d like to have dinner.*

Celebrity Select Dining debuts onboard Celebrity Equinox, beginning with the September 26, 2009 sailing. All other ships in the fleet will introduce the program during the first quarter of 2010.

Historically, guests on most cruise lines decided at the time of booking whether they wanted early or late seating for dinner in the main dining room. Sometimes that meant rushing to dinner after a relaxing spa treatment or cutting that shopping trip short so that you could get back to your cabin to change for dinner.

With this new program, plan your dinner around your daily activities. If you want to spend some extra time sightseeing in port, you’ll have the option to dine a little later that evening. Celebrity Select Dining is all about flexibility. You can choose to dine in the Main Dining room at any time between 6:00 and 9:30 pm each evening. If you wish, you can dine at different times throughout the cruise - the flexibility is yours.

For those that like to plan in advance, make your day by day dining reservations online before your cruise. Celebrity Cruises recommends online reservations for the best possible dining experience. Reservations will be accepted onboard the ship also.
