From restaurants, cafés, bars, and lounges, there are a grand total of 32 food and beverage destinations and experiences on Beyond. This means that even if you’re on board for well over a week, you won’t ever get bored of the food and drink during a cruise. The brightest new star in the Celebrity sky is Le Voyage, renowned chef Daniel Boulud’s first foray into dining at sea. This specialty restaurant is housed in an intimate space decorated in muted tones, with real candles flickering on each table, and features an inventive yet accessible menu spanning the globe. The food is divine, with standout dishes being the peanut tamarin Thai green curry shrimp, lobster risotto, and, for dessert, fresh, warm, powdered sugar-dusted madeleines. The four main dining rooms (Tuscan, Cyprus, Normandie, and Cosmopolitan) are each uniquely designed and decorated, with dramatic artwork, vibrant furniture, and eye-catching lighting. Say goodbye to the tired main dining room (MDR) format here, because each of these complimentary restaurants feature globally inspired menus with three distinct parts: everyday standards, a rotating daily menu across all four main dining rooms, and signature dishes on restaurant-specific menus that highlight cuisine from each region these rooms represent (Italy, the Mediterranean, France, NYC, respectively). The food and service are so good, you’ll think you’re dining in a Michelin-starred restaurant.
The Oceanview Cafe has what is, simply put, the best buffet at sea, with high-quality dishes, delicious made-to-order breakfasts from overnight oats to omelets with an array of ingredient choices, and floor-to-ceiling windows on the inside and outdoor seating out back with sweeping sea views.
Two exclusive dining destinations are on board, for AquaClass (Blu) and Retreat level guests (Luminae), serving three meals a day from an ambitious, haute cuisine menu that changes daily. There are more specialty dining options on board, too (Raw on Five seafood, a steakhouse, Eden’s inventive garden-inspired menu, and more). Still, between the diversity of the complimentary main dining rooms, the tasty burgers and fries at The Mast Grill, and the always on-point buffet, there may be no real need to spend extra dollars on food on Beyond.
Non-premium beers, spirits, cocktails, liqueurs, frozen drinks, and wines by the glass, plus sodas, juices, specialty coffees, teas, and bottled water are part of the cruise experience. Be sure to enjoy a cocktail at the Aft, worth it to check out the stunning design alone.
Sunset Bar is best during sunset, but the drinks are pretty good too.
The Martini Bar, located in the center of the ship, is the showpiece, featuring live music, inviting lounge chairs, and affable bartenders.
The Magic Carpet, a bright orange outdoor space that hangs off the side of ship above the sea, is the most unique place to for a beer or glass of wine. It has 270-degree ocean views enjoyed from cushioned seating and a bar. The Craft Social Bar, serving craft beer selections, wine, and comfort food small bites, in a den-like room is where to catch the “big game.”
