Considered by many cruise enthusiasts to be the crème de la crème of cruise ships, Celebrity Cruise Lines has been in business since 1989. From their inaugural cruise in 1990 to today, Celebrity Cruises has been committed to offering guests higher quality, premium and elegant cruises that embody modern luxury.
Celebrity Cruises boast a fleet of 11 ships with itineraries that visit all seven continents. The cruise line also offers their “immersive Cruisetour” experiences in Alaska, Australia/New Zealand, Canada, Europe and South America.
Dining: Cuisine aboard Celebrity Cruises promises to be a “perfect marriage of flavors” with dishes that are globally influenced and artfully prepared. Each ship has a main dining hall with a set dining time or guests can choose from a variety of casual restaurants that serve meals all day. The casual restaurants and main dining hall are included in your cruise price. For the adventurous however, there are additional restaurants on each ship that offer culinary delights for an added fee.
On board activities: Like most cruise lines, Celebrity Cruises offer spas, casinos, classes, and shows. Types of shows available include Broadway style productions, circus acts with aerialists and acrobats, comedians, singers, instrumentalists, magicians and more.
Excursions: Like most cruise ships Celebrity Cruises offers a variety of excursions at each port of call, but they also offer special customized excursions such as driving along the French Riviera in a Ferrari, hot air balloon rides above the Tuscan countryside and a ride aboard a Havilland seaplane for a birds-eye view of five stunning Alaskan glaciers. These specialty excursions vary by ship and there aren’t many offered so book them quickly!
Celebrity sails to Alaska, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Bermuda, California, Canada/New England, the Caribbean, Europe, Hawaii, the Pacific Coast, South America, and year-round in the Galapagos Islands.
In 1997, Celebrity Cruise Lines merged with Royal Caribbean International to form Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
