Someone asked about breakfast on Celebrity. Looking at the MDR menu and hcat talking about Belgian waffles got me thinking about some great breakfasts we have had on Celebrity ships. What are your favorites? What breakfast secrets do you have to share?

 

Here are some menus to refresh your memory and some pictures of our favorites:

This was my BIL and SIL's first cruise  and first cruise room service breakfast, so went a little overboard - notice the VT maple syrup we brought with us - no fake stuff for us!

Love the Ed's waffles sign!  As Ed would say, they must come straight off the griddle.  I like mine with orange butter.  I believe he prefers syrup.  I used to love the hash browns in Luminae.  On Equinox this fall, I was not impressed.  Must have been a different chef.  Also love almond croissants, generally only available in al Baccio.  Or your butler can bring them.  Although the amount of almond paste therein has decreased noticeably over the years.  May have to resort to bringing my own and supplementing the meager amount.

This thread is excellent!

I usually eat fish for breakfast daily, but  do indulge myself on cruises. The Belgian waffles will be one of my choices for sure..and I like that English bacon.!

 

Can't wait for EDGE.  Bad timing b/c  Dh's dr told him he needs to cut carbs.( me too)  .but  luckily there are lots of non carb choices on X.

I thought it was imagination about the almond croissants - the filling is disappearing - still yummy though!

That platter looks good! What's in the glass? I didn't even think to mention breakfast drinks!

agree on the almond croissants - delicious but getting pretty "thin" on the filling

They also tend to be available daily at the morning Captain’s Club Continental Breakfast/Coffee event for Elite, Elite +, and Zenith members...

Lots of low carb options - the cinnamon rolls in Eden, the waffles, the pastries at Cafe al Bacio... you'll be fine! 😉

These were some of the items from the Captain's Club Breakfast on the Edge in Tuscan - looks like some nice croissants:

Have to say, Celebrity's breakfast buffet is the best of any cruise line I have been on in 25 years. The photo is actually from lunch.  We are late risers so never at breakfast when everything is still pristine.  So this photo was taken as we were leaving from breakfast and about 5 minutes before lunch was open!

Eggs Benedict in Blu and Luminae, I’m not a big breakfast lover so I indulge while cruising.  I only eat one so DH is happy to help me out.😉

Confession time...Much as we know the Luminae breakfast is great and that our butler will bring us anything we want we often just order coffee to be delivered. One of us will then go to the buffet and bring back French stick chunks and choose rashers of crispy, well done English bacon and we will enjoy ‘bacon butties’ on the balcony....Enjoyable food often isn’t fancy!

 

We also enjoy breakfasts in Tuscan...I prefer the plated option to the buffet style. The ultimate platter with a bit of everything on it with a Bellini and a strong coffee is a great way to start the day.

I like to order salmon benedict in Blu or get some lox in the OVC and take it to the omelet station with some capers and ask for a special omelet....and also the chocolate croissants. I love to order room service coffee and the chocolate croissants and sit on the balcony in the early morning with my book enjoying the quiet and the sea.

VT you do start the best threads on here!!!

We left our cruise ship two days ago. Breakfast this morning was really quite depressing compared to what we've become accustomed too! 😁

Going home is the worst part of a cruise. I always wander around saying "but I deserve to be treated like a princess every day, not just on cruises" - my DH just laughs.  I suppose it would get old... 🙂

I like the idea of customizing your omelet and sitting on the balcony with a book and chocolate croissants seems like a winner to me!

I usually stay consistent for breakfast when on cruises.  Mostly 2-3 eggs bacon and sautéed spinach or some kind of veggie. Usually one splurge of eggs Benedict on cruise I don’t eat carbs bread pancakes in morning anymore since I usually want to take a nap right after.  Now lunch pre dinner and dinner are different stories.  They tend to be all out

We usually MDR for breakfast and I alternate between Eggs Royale and the French Omelet always with a side of mushrooms and a grapefruit juice
