Default POLL- most BEAUTIFUL cruise ship DINING ROOM?

We all know what the most important room on the ship is... NOT the engine room<G>.. the Dining Room. Wondering if everyone has a favorite?
What ship do you think has the most aesthetically pleasing dining room?


My choice is the Grand Restaurant on the Celebrity Century. Think it is absolutely stunning!

Of course I can only go by the 10 ships I've been on. Based on those the Manhattan Dining Room on Celebrity Mercury. Seeing what yours is I guess we have similar taste.

For pure glamour, I vote the two-story dining room on the Rhapsody of the Seas. I always made sure we entered from the top deck and descended down the grand staircase, making a fabulous entrance. :-)

My vote, with limited experience, has to go to the Millennium class vessels. Those aft two story panoramic windows are magnificent.

Any ship I am on will have the best dining room, cause at least I'm cruising and not sitting at home in my dining room.

While I dislike the superlative adjective "most" when discussing almost anything in this Industry... I do have to concur with Kuki... if not "the" most beautiful, the main Dining Room on the Century is gorgeous and will give any other dining room at sea at least a run for its money. In a way it is remniscent of the Normandie... dark cherry mahogany wood walls... lovely columns dramatically placed, leading to the aft three deck or so high port to starboard windows. It is just a delight!

Upstairs table on the Mercury or window table for lunch on the Mercury! Wow!

Notice a pattern yet? So far all (save for one) are Celebrity ships .
Funny thing, when considering Mercury for our cruise 2 years ago, I read a review and the reviewer said " and the Manhattan Dining Room is drop dead gorgeous".
Virtually every dining room named so far follows an almost identical design.

I have to agree the Century Dining room was outstanding. We sailed on her in 2000 and enjoyed the decor.

I am voting for Celebrity's Galaxy fabulous two-story dining room with the panoramic two-story windows, from where we watched (at first seating) sailaway with lights flickering in the distance. Breathless and beautiful....aah.

How about the 3 tier dinning room on RCCL's Explorer, that was pretty impressive looking, also liked the dinning room on Rhapsody, especiall the staircase with the baby grand right at the bottom, nice touch!

Mercury gets our vote too. We have not sailed on the Century yet, but I would think the Mercury would be similar.

I have to also go along with Celebrity's "Century". To me - that ship's dining room is the prettiest that I've seen so far.

OK - that settles it - I have to try celebrity! Have only been on RCL, NCL and Carnival so far and in those ships that I have sailed I have to say so far it is the Legend of the Seas. I am glad to see the Rhapsody mentioned as we will be sailing on her in 2 months.. Debbie

Well... the abreviated "Century" class... Century, Galaxy and Mercury are all lovely... but... in the tradition of Chandris (Century was the last fully designed and decorated by John Chandris and his wife)... Century's dining room is very very special. Galaxy is lovely as is the Merc... but... the Chandris "touch" is most evident in the Century... dining room... and... what about the Crystal Lounge... just super.

My vote is for Century's dining room as one of the best. Yeah, the others in her line have the same floor plan... but... aah... the panache!

My vote would be the Millennium. But that's just until my next cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas. So we'll see.

I only have two other ships to compare it to, but I agree, The main dining room on Celebrity's Century is lovely. Love the beautiful staircase.
