Crystal Cruise Lines Food & Wine:
What could be more civilized than afternoon tea? Crystal Cruises offers several tea options to transport you to a different time and place. Revel in the luscious Viennese flavors and elegant ambiance of their Mozart Tea, where the Crystal staff, in period costumes of velvet, brocade and lace cater to your pleasure. You may also choose the white-tie-and-tails tradition of our English Colonial Tea or the charming southern ambiance of the popular American Tea.
Daytime snacks, a lunchtime hamburger/hot dog grill, sandwiches, specialty burgers and a full bar are available at the Trident Bar & Grill. During your cruise, you will be treated to several special buffets that might include Asia Café, Cuisine of the Sun, Latino Nuevo and American Classic. For your sweet tooth, ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbets and freshly baked cookies are available during the day at the Ice Cream Bar.
The extraordinary cuisine for which Crystal Cruises is justifiably famous is offered in the elegant Crystal Dining Room, located in the heart of the ship just off the Crystal Plaza. The Crystal Dining Room is beautifully appointed, with sweeping ocean views by day and a magnificent ambiance at night. The European-trained waiters and internationally acclaimed chefs provide regionally inspired dishes and classic continental cuisine. The Crystal Dining Room offers the flexibility of two seatings to facilitate your dining preferences, and gives you the convenience of open seating at breakfast and lunch.
Casual poolside dining is offered on many evenings. Served from the Trident Grill (Tastes on Crystal Serenity), dinners on these relaxed, no-reservations evenings under the stars are a unique Crystal Cruises dining option.
The alternative specialty dinner restaurants offer exciting variety at no additional cost.
Kyoto, the Japanese restaurant aboard Crystal Harmony, features a sophisticated ambiance; traditional dishes are created by our staff of renowned Japanese chefs.
On Crystal Symphony, you'll enjoy the innovative Asian cuisine prepared with a contemporary flair at Jade Garden. Dishes are inspired by the exotic array of traditions and ingredients of the Orient. Specialty selections from Wolfgang Puck's Chinois restaurant are also offered.

On Crystal Harmony, Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity, the Italian restaurant Prego offers elegant dining with a spectacular view and unique Italian cuisine. No matter where in the world you are cruising, you'll have the option to enjoy Old World charm and authentic regional Italian cuisine, with signature creations by Piero Selvaggio, owner of the renowned Valentino restaurants in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
Sometimes, after a long day's adventure ashore or a full schedule of activities on board, the very best option for dinner is to order in. 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. You may also order from the evening's menu in the Crystal Dining Room, or request whatever your heart desires-their chefs will do their best to oblige your tastes. Those guests in the Penthouses who order In-Suite & In-Stateroom Dining will be served by their butler, and also have the option of ordering from our specialty restaurants.
When a cruise line puts as much of an emphasis on offering their guests a superb culinary experience as Crystal does, you expect them to present a wine list to match. Chosen to represent a broad range of wines from the world in which we sail, the Crystal Cruises wine list is without equal at sea. From vintage years of first-growth Bordeaux and California cult Cabernets, to excellent value wines from countries like Spain and Australia, Crystal Cruises' wine list has something for every taste. And the knowledgeable sommeliers can help you choose the perfect wine for your dinner and budget.
