On the Cruisemates Celebrity Cruise, a bunch of us dined at Muranos. We dined at the table sort of in the window with the wine bottles with Kuki. It was a delight. I am not used to dining for over 2 hours, that was a challenge I must admit.

This was the highlight of dining onboard, as we had service and food issues in the dining room. The food and butterfly service was devine, and I would gladly do it again.

Although you already received an answer, I wanted to add my two cents...

The restaurant is absolutely FABULOUS and the service is first rate.

Try it...you won't regret it!

That's funny, we tried and ended up not having such a good time because my wife got seasick and the Maitre D' was kind of rude to her because she wanted to leave but she had already had some food. She knew she had committed to pay for it, but she was sick and couldn't stay, but she knew she would feel better so she wanted her entree set up "to go."

They wouldn't do it. The cruise ships do not want you taking food out of the restaurants. We asked why and they said "because we don't know what happens to it after you get it back to the cabin."

Okay, this makes some sense. They don't want it spoiling, etc. But what about room service??? They don't have a problem bringing food to your cabin, but pay $30 for a dinner and then ask for a portion of what you paid for to be set up to take back to your cabin and they get all weird on you. Why?

Anyway - our food was good, but I was not overwhelmed.

We ate on Emerald Princess in the Grill and had the 1.5 lb lobster steamed. It costs $15 extra by OMG is it ever delicious. $40 in all for the best meal ever.

We are going on Solstice next week and plan to try both Murano and Tuscan Grille. I will let you know! (I am salivating thinking about, shouldn't type this at dinner time.

Paul, when you return can you post both a lunch and dinner menu from the Murano...We will be onboard the Smooth Music Cruise 1/31 thru 2/5, and Sunday is Super Bowl so we may want to eat a late lunch in the place so we can attend the Super Bowl party which starts at 6 pm (which is our early seating dinner time)..thanks

Well, not quite. It's $30.00 per person plus the dinner that you are not eating in the main dining room, for which you have already paid.

Some people get into the mindset that dinner in Celebrity's specialty restaurants is "only $30.00" because they forget about the dinner for which they have already paid. Whether the it's worth $30.00 per person additional to eat in Celebrity's specialty restaurants is a matter of personal opinion. Personally, I would arrange to eat there (1) for an especially significant special occasion (honeymoon, 25th or 50th wedding anniversary, etc.) or (2) if I'm travelling with a young person who had never eaten in that type of restaurant. And if my tablemates decide to eat there as a group on one night of a cruise, I would go along with the group. But otherwise, I probably would not bother.

Of course, YMMV -- and it apparently does!

Norm.

Default Reservation

Oh..btw...if you plan on dining at Murano, make a reservation NOW. We cruised on Century twice and on the first cruise we tried to book a reservation as soon as we got on the ship and were told that Murano was booked up except for the last night at 9 pm. Last night in the main dining room happens to be the formal night and a good meal so we didn't bother with Murano. So book ASAP if you can.
