Specialty Restaurant Add-on

Does Celebrity ever discount the Specialty Restaurant Add-on?

They offer speciality restaurants  multiple night dining packages and discounts for the 1st night which you can find in your Cruise Planner.  On board there may or may not be discounts  offered it just depends on how booked they are.  IME the shorter cruises offer fewer discount than the 12+.night cruises.

I have never been denied a discount when I have asked. I usually inquire of the staff that hovers outside the OVC at lunch what kind of discount they can give me for a time and date for the preferred restaurant. Some times I have to settle for a different date than requested to get a discount. Last cruise I was offered 35% off for a different night. Just ask!

There are 3, 4, 5, up to 10 night packages.  The more nights in the package you purchase the better it is discounted.  
You didn’t mention which ship.  The Summit, Millenium, Constellation & Infinity have the fewest (3) specialty restaurants,  Tuscan-Italian Steakhouse, La Petit Chef @Qzine which is a set menu and courses are accompanied by animation  & Sushi on 5.  
The other ships have either 4 or 5.

With the package when you board the ship you book you restaurants and dining times.  LPC is one if the choices.

How’s does the specialty dining package work? I saw Sushi on 5 is a $35 spend limit. I’m coming from NCL and new to Celebrity.

Le petit is included in the package. I'm on the summit now and booked le petit for dinner. I had the 2 dinners and one lunch. 1st night we did sushi on 5. There was a 30% discount if you ate there the 1st night so we saved our dinner #1 and paid 30%. Dinner #1 was Tuscan Grille which unfortunately is not good with the Italian food. My steak and sides were delicious, meatballs were very sweet. Qsine is done as of day 7 (11 day Itinerary which is today) for dinner. They have a special sea food lunch which our lunch counted for. And day 9 we are in dinner #2 for le petit chef at night. 6pm and 8pm seatings.

Sushi on 5 is a la carte You can usually get a discount if you ask. I have seen 30% off and I have seen all you can eat for $30 pp.

jean8750,

 

I read on another site that the Summit was having a lawnclub type “event”one night a week at the grill area. $35 per person fee. Did it occur on your cruise

Once in a awhile I have seen the Dinner packages discounted pre-cruise. 

 

While aboard I have ALWAYS been offered discounts.    They usually have a rep outside the  OceanView soliciting bookings.   Just ask and you will be rewarded.

Are the specialty dining packages generally a good deal, or (as I am reading) the discounts they may offer negate the savings?

So for something like Tuscan Grill, do they limit you, or can you order more than one app or dessert?

i believe la petite is 45 or 55 bucks so if the SDP is 3 nites for 109 even retail then thats a deal. but id love to save even more onboard. plus if we are given 300 OBC, gotta use it somehow

For me, I think I will be spending most of my OBC on excursions, so SDP would be good for me.

I believe the 3 night package is now $119 per person. Not a good deal when you can always get discounts on board! If it is on sale for $109, obviously that is a better deal.

New to Celebrity and cruising.  Are you saying I might be able to eat in a specialty restaurant night 1 at a discount?  If so will they let me move the reservation I currently have night 1 at a specialty restaurant (Le Petit on the Edge) to another night?  Or, do you think I should move it now and hope to get a discount somewhere night 1.

Yes. I've been told on celebrity summit that I can move the night 1 reservation.  There usually is a discount on night 1. You can move it when you get onboard very easily. I've only been on the Summit 5x so that's my only celebrity ship that i know about.  The Edge may be different.

I got for the summit $100 a person 2 dinners and a lunch so $109 probably is a good price for 3 dinners.

Is there a thread to explain and break down these packages?  First time for myself, parents,  brother family,uncle and cousin  family on Celebrity.   We are on eight night sailing and would love to purchase my parents a night at the steakhouse on board and perhaps a night of sushi for my nephew and his cousins.   Sailing on Equinox.  Thanks

Is that true on the Edge?  Katie
