Brunch in the Moonlight Sonata restaurant of Celebrity Eclipse

Celebrity Cruises is a Premium cruise line which is known for its excellent overall quality and very good cuisine. The Moonlight Sonata restaurant is the main dining room where you could have breakfast a la carte, sometimes lunch and every evening dinner if you decide not to go to a speciality restaurant.

When you enter you see an impressive glass tower at the end of the dining room, it is the wine tower. We can not imagine how many bottles they keep in this tower. On the ceiling hangs a fabulous modern chandelier, the dinning room is still empty. On the next picture the brunch has started.

All cooks manage there own stand, ranging from waffles, sushi, cold meats, fish and seafood, warm meals and desserts. The quality for such a big buffet is very good but it can be crowded. This is something which can not be avoided in the main dining room when you cruise with almost 3.000 passengers.

Celebrity Cruises is een Premium cruise maatschappij die gekend staat voor zijn algemene kwaliteit en zeer goede keuken. Het Moonlight Sonata is het grote restaurant waar je ’s morgens ontbijt a la carte kan nuttigen, soms een lunch en iedere avond het diner als je niet besluit naar één van de specialiteiten restaurant te gaan. 

Als je binnengaat word je onmiddellijk geconfronteerd met een enorme glazen toren achteraan in het restaurant, het is de wijntoren. We kunnen niet inschatten hoeveel flessen er in deze toren opgeslagen liggen. Aan het plafond hangt een enorme moderne luster, het restaurant is nog altijd leeg. Op de volgende foto is de brunch aangevangen. 

Iedere kok beheert zijn eigen stand, met wafels, sushi, koude vleessoorten, vis en zeevruchten, warme gerechten en desserts. Niet tegenstaande het een zeer groot buffet is, blijft de kwaliteit verbluffend, het kan echter wel druk worden in deze grote ruimte. Dit kan echter niet vermeden worden als je met bijna 3.000 passagiers op een cruise schip zit..

  4. Oh my, what an amazing visit through your adventures. Fabulous photos, a dreamy place to dine, and the chef, wow, he was surely a pleasant looking cook, the endless treats, oh my which one not to taste! The ice sculptures incredible, as is the design in the dining area, and I always have to laugh, at how some guests, just don't dress for dinner any more- they just arrive in their cool designed t-shirts advertising something! What a fun time, thanks for sharing these. I am wondering where you both will be spending or rather ringing in the new year? On a beach, Times Square, a quiet park, or? I'll be back to see! Enjoy !

  16. What amazing shots these are. When we cruise, I can never get over the amazing things that these chefs do, day in and day out, week after week. It always seems to me as if they must work 24 hours a day, and they still have that smile on their faces, and look as if they are truly enjoying themselves. The wine tower is quite amazing!
