A culinary adventure aboard Celebrity Summit
I’m not sure whether to categorize this as a restaurant review or a culinary adventure. Since you start with an i-pad for a menu, I’m going to call this an adventure. This is a speciality restaurant located on some of the Celebrity cruise ships. We just got back from a cruise on the Celebrity Summit with a group ranging from 18 to 81. We wanted to try something different but were concerned that all ages might not enjoy the upbeat experience. I think Nana enjoyed it as much as the rest of us. The girls had fun showing her how to use the i-pad and she was able to try things she never would have tried otherwise.
This is a tapas style restaurant where one person is chosen as the captain who then gives the order to the waiter. Everyone chooses their favorites on their individual i-pad and then you have the difficult task of choosing. Since there were 6 of us we were able to try quite a few things. I would try to go with a group so that you can sample as many dishes as possible. We tried this the second night of our cruise and liked it so much that we returned on the last day, certain we would leave room for dessert. I am sorry to say that we never got to dessert.
The wait staff was so attentive which made the dining experience even better. They are known for their presentation which does make it fun, but really the food was so good, we would have gone back without the presentation. From glowing ice cubes, to springs for the spring rolls, each one was presented in its’ own unique way.
The first night we sampled seven different dishes thinking that we would have plenty of room for dessert. The portions were so generous and they were all so delicious that we could not eat another bite. For the desserts, you get a rubik cube type device where each time you open it there is another dessert option.
Our second go round, we paced ourselves and only ordered four items, but still we could not get dessert. It’s hard to say which were my favorites but the Fish N Chips and the Shushi Lollipops should not be missed.
Eating at Qsine was probably the highlight of our trip. We are all still amazed that Nana ate a sushi lollipop and I am sure her friends will be impressed at how adventurous she was.
I am adding an addendum to the above post. The photo is not of the Celebrity Summit, it was taken out of our balcony window of the Princess which was docked right beside us.
