For the fifth year running, Celebrity Cruises’ wine collection is the most awarded at sea. For the fifth year running, it has been recognized by the Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards, claiming nine awards in 2017.
The renowned publication recognizes wine lists which “feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style." This is the fifth year that cruise lines have been included in the awards, which have been used to recognize the world's best wine lists since 1981.
Celebrity’s main dining room wine lists host over 300 prestigious labels, including Tignanello, Grgich Hills, Caymus Special Selection, and Guigal Cote Rotie. Celebrity’s wine menus are continually updated in order to keep the offerings fresh and exciting, featuring an extensive global collection of fine wines, which match both the modern luxury brand’s globally influenced blend of classic and contemporary cuisine, and the diverse destinations it visits across the seven continents of the world.
Onboard, a team of Sommeliers navigates guests through the award-winning wine lists, guiding them to new and exciting choices. The modern luxury brand’s teams also participate in ongoing education to keep them primed in wine theory, vintages, regional/varietal technicalities and, of course, food and wine pairings.
Celebrity offers a variety of onboard activities and experiences that immerse guests in wine education and enjoyment. These include Riedel comparative wine glass workshops, wine and food pairing events, wine tastings and more.
