Restaurants and Bars

Authentic yet inventive. Creative yet classic. The culinary experience with Crystal is simply exceptional. The elegant Crystal Dining Room or the intimate Vintage Room. The striking Sushi Bar or the delicious comfort of a meal served on your private verandah. From the extraordinary cuisine of celebrity chefs to the inventive menus created by Crystal’s own acclaimed culinary team, dining aboard Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony promises to delight and surprise even the most discriminating palate.

CRYSTAL DINING ROOM

With the signature focus on choice, the Crystal Dining Room now offers two menus each evening: a innovative new “Modern” menu including dishes such as a Slow-cooked Shiraz-braised Oxtail Ragout, or a re-imagined Strawberries Romanoff with Cotton Candy dome, alongside a “Classic” menu of traditional favorites.

“Lighter Fare” options including low-sodium, low-cholesterol, low-carb selections and vegetarian dishes are also included on every menu.

The Crystal Dining Room offers open seating for breakfast and lunch.

Our complimentary Dining by Reservation affords you ultimate freedom, inviting you to dine at a different time, at a different table, just for two or with newfound friends. This option can be selected at the time of booking. Once your cruise is fully paid, you may then reserve your personal dining times at our Priority Check-in & Planning Center (PCPC). As many traditional cruisers prefer classic dining options that allow them to dine at the same time each evening during their cruise – at the same table with their regular tablemates and served by their familiar evening wait staff – we are pleased to continue offering our Classic Main and Late Seatings, too. Breakfast and lunch in the Crystal Dining Room are open seating.

Prego

You can expect the delicious flavors of Italian cuisine to come to life when you dine at Prego. Charming and romantic. Savor intimate table side service and a seasonally changing menu of traditional favorites such as Scaloppine Di Vitello Servite Con Capelli D’angelo and Linguine Con Aragosta E Zucchini. This specialty restaurant has a menu that changes based on what ingredients are in season. The restaurant is a work of famed chef Piero Selvaggio. (Serving dinner only.)

Silk Road & The Sushi Bar

The eclectic–and delectable–cuisine of world-renowned master chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa is prepared by Nobu-trained chefs at Silk Road and The Sushi Bar. Regarded for his innovative approach to sushi, Nobu blends classically styled Japanese foods with distinct Peruvian and European influences. While The Sushi Bar offers an assortment of Nobu’s inventive sushi and sashimi, including Salmon Tartar, Tiradito Nobu-style and Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, Silk Road presents his celebrated dishes such as Lobster with Truffle-Yuzu Sauce, Grilled Wagyu Beef Rib-Eye with Wasabi Pepper Sauce, and his signature dessert, a Bento Box filled with Chocolate Soufflé Cake with Shiso Syrup and Sesame Ice Cream. The famed chef enjoys a long history with Crystal and unveiled his own line of fine china during Crystal Serenity’s inaugural season. Serving dinner only.
