Top 10 Cruise Lines for Specialty Dining

Crystal has teamed with top chefs and restaurateurs to bring haute cuisine to the high seas. Along with its Perfect Choice Dining, which allows guests to customize their dinner experience in the main Crystal Dining Room, this cruise line also features two specialty restaurants. At Prego, a romantic atmosphere sets the mood for the seasonally changing "Valentino at Prego" menu, which features signature Italian dishes from Piero Selvaggio's acclaimed Valentino restaurants. Chef Nobu Matsuhisa brings his unique fusion of Japanese and Peruvian influences to Silk Road and The Sushi Bar, where Nobu-trained chefs serve dishes such as lobster with truffle-yuzu sauce and bento boxes filled with chocolate soufflé cake and sesame ice cream.

There is no extra charge for specialty dining, but reservations must be made in advance or with the maître d' once on board.
