Presenting Celebrity’s New Suite Class Restaurant: Luminae


If you’re traveling with Celebrity Cruises later this spring and suddenly have a hankering for caviar and crème fraîche, you’re in in luck. On Tuesday, Celebrity Cruises publicly unveiled its new Suite Class restaurant, Luminae, which will feature locally-sourced regional and seasonal ingredients inspired by Celebrity destination sites.

Inspired by the essence of light, exceptional food, wine and luxury, Luminae will feature dishes like a creamy black truffle risotto with fricassee of wild mushrooms and Parmigiano-Reggiano, côte de bœuf with roasted root vegetables and béarnaise sauce, as well as mascarpone cheesecake and pistachio nougatine with yuzu brown butter and apricot sorbet.

“Everything about Luminae embodies an inspirational culinary journey for our guests. We want them to savor soulful, technique-driven cuisine, while enjoying warm and personalized service in a relaxed, stylish setting,” said John Suley, James Beard-featured Celebrity Cruises executive chef.

And if you like a particular day’s menu, definitely make time to enjoy it that same day—each of Luminae’s menu items will only be featured once during a two-week cruise vacation. Other special touches include table-side preparation of signature dishes and the daily presentation of a new delectable gourmet chocolates and desserts cart. Wine lovers can take heart in a selection of over 400 wine from around the world.

Offering complimentary breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, Luminae is a culinary experience of modern, eclectic cuisine and extraordinary service that will remind you (and your taste buds) that there’s no better way to vacation than as a Celebrity Cruises Suite Class guest.

    Sounds like a lovely addition to the already fabulous dining on Celebrity. Too bad it is only for a select group. Celebrity already provides the option to purchase dining at specialty restaurants for those who want to try menus other than those offered at the Main Dining Room. Unfortunately Celebrity is becoming a classless cruise line by segregating is guests by class stating only “certain” guests will be allowed in “certain” restaurants. Soon if you book an inside cabin you will be dining on the poop deck! Celebrity has always been known for its dining but for future cruises we will switch cruise lines where we will not be made to feel like second-class sailors unless we book a suite.

    We just sailed on the Constellation on a back to back leaving Ft Lauderdaleon Apr. 9th. We were in a suite and we dined at the Lumanea. It was truly the most wonderful experience, one main reason was the attention to detail that Rakesh, our waiter, gave to us. He explained each dish and offered his advice as to what item he thought we would enjoy. We were never dissappointed with his suggestion or knowledge of what each item entailed. It shows that he truly loves his job. Therefore making our dining experience so wonderful for us.
    Actually the whole staff were wonderful, all of the staff always treated us with a huge welcome and smile. Each member of the dining staff always welcomed us and upon leaving they were checking with us to be sure we enjoyed or meals.
    The serving dishes were so beautiful, and the tables were immaculate. We loved the extra attention to the setting of the silverware, so proper. Please give our sincere thanks to Rakesh, he made our trip so special.
    The Captain Nicholas, what a pleasant person. Every time he passed us and said, “oh here’s the couple from Utah”. He remembered us from an earlier cruise to the Western Carribbean that we were on in March, even remembered our Grandsons from that cruise. Wow, expressive.
    Thanks to Celebrity and all of your staff members to make everyone on board so happy.
    The Winston’s, Eric and Joalene
