Top 10 Cruise Lines for Specialty Dining

Silversea's Le Champagne is the only Wine Restaurant by Relais & Châteaux at sea

Specializing in sophisticated cruises to destinations around the world, Silversea offers fine dining options that are similarly global-minded. At Le Champagne, the only Relais & Châteaux wine restaurant at sea, guests on all Silversea ships can indulge in a six-course tasting menu that pairs fine wines with dishes crafted from artisan products and locally sourced ingredients. Exclusive to the Silver Spirit, Seishin features Asian fusion cuisine served either à la carte, in bento boxes or as part of a nine-course degustation meal. Sake pairings are available, and the restaurant's centerpiece is a chef's table, so that diners can observe the fine art of sushi and sashimi making.

Reservations for both Le Champagne and Seishin can be made on board for $30 per person.
