Celebrity Cruises Partners With SPE Certified To Provide Innovative, Healthy Dining Options For Guests

"Consumers' desire for healthy dining options has evolved from a small niche several years ago into the general mindset today, with developments like the ban of transfats, nutrition labeling, and passionate dietary followings such as vegan, gluten-free and low-carb, so this was the ideal time to rethink our approach to healthy dining," said Celebrity's Culinary Director John Suley. "Celebrity has always been a leader in offering a high quality dining experience and culinary innovations, and with SPE Certified, we have the opportunity to pair that legacy with a new definition of healthy dining for our guests."

"Celebrity Cruises' reputation as an innovator in inspired onboard dining is perfectly aligned with SPE Certified's ethos of providing healthy and delicious food outside of the home -- a process that is continuously validated by world-renowned nutrition experts from Harvard, Tufts and Baylor universities," said SPE Certified Founder & CEO Emmanuel Verstraeten. "Celebrity's culinary team has an obvious passion for food, as well as a single-minded focus to provide their guests with an unparalleled level of dining on the high seas, and we are therefore delighted to be partnering with them."

Celebrity's SPE-certified dishes – designated by the organization's distinctive "squiggly red insignia" – will be available first on Celebrity Reflection beginning April 6, and will roll out across the balance of the fleet on dates yet to be announced. The selections will be available across the entire fleet by the end of the year.

About SPE® Certified: SPE® Certified is a unique certification and consulting program designed to enhance the nutritional quality of meals, without sacrificing taste. SPE stands for Sanitas Per Escam (Latin for "Health Through Food"), and its mission is to provide a universal, trusted standard for healthy and delicious dining outside of the home.
