Celebrity Cruises has captured twelve Wine Spectator Restaurant Awards for 2021. Wine Spectator annually recognizes restaurant wine lists that feature a well-chosen assortment of quality wine producers along with a thematic match to the menu.
In addition to receiving 10 “Awards of Excellence” for the second consecutive year, Celebrity received two coveted “Best of Awards of Excellence” for its unique wine lists on Celebrity Apex and Celebrity Edge.
Celebrity has set the standard for onboard wine programs, holding more awards from Wine Spectator – considered the world’s leading authority on wine – than any other cruise line. It is the only cruise line among a small, elite group around the world that have received awards for the past nine consecutive years.
“We’ve taken the utmost care to curate a collection of wines that not only complements the culinary experience for our guests, but is synergistic with the destinations we visit,” said Cornelius Gallagher, vice president of food and beverage for Celebrity Cruises. “The recognition from such a prestigious group is a testament to the details we’ve poured into ensuring we create a special wine experience for our guests.”
The list of Celebrity Cruises Wine Spectator’s 2021 Restaurant Awards includes all of the main dining room restaurants on the ships in Celebrity’s Millennium Series and Solstice Series.
