Savor the Moment
Say good-bye to ordinary fare and hello to palate perfection. Celebrity Cruises invites you to taste the promise of a delicious vacation, selecting from a menu of choices sure to please even the most discerning foodie.
Most know Murano for fine dining at dinnertime. But this culinary experience includes a delectable daytime meal at the upscale French restaurant. Even though dinner is the only set meal served at Murano, this is the exclusive opportunity to lunch on classic French dishes from a menu that features an expansive selection of artisanal cheeses and an extensive international wine list.
Join the connoisseur crowd for Wine Appreciation 101, where a certified sommelier will teach you how to discern varietals and vintages. Feeling a spirited urge for cocktails? Try out Mixology 101 to acquire the skills to master the mojito and other delectable liquid concoctions. During Craft Cocktail Mixology classes, get insider tricks of the trade and inventive twists to recreate your favorite vacation cocktails back at home.
After completing the mixology mélange, get schooled in the vessels that allow the libations to sparkle. Celebrity Cruises partnered with Riedel, one of the world’s preeminent wine-glass companies, to create the ideal combination of culture and class. Drink in some fun facts at the Riedel Comparative Wine Crystal Workshop. The sommelier-led tasting showcases how the size, shape, thickness, and quality of a glass can affect the flavor of various wines.
After all that learning, you’ve likely worked up an appetite. For cinephiles on Millennium Class, take those cravings up to the Rooftop Terrace for A Taste of Film, where bites and beverages are served alfresco for a movie presentation. Or compete in the Star Chefs Cooking Competition, Celebrity’s version of Top Chef where two cooking virtuosos and their assistants take to the chopping block to showcase their culinary prowess. Healthy culinary fun includes the lighthearted Global Flavors Cooking Demonstration, The Healthy Way.
Now that you’re well versed in the basics of wine, spirits, and flavors, put those skills together during The Art of Food and Wine Pairing. The spirited workshop is led by your ship’s Cellar Master, who can answer all your pairing questions.
Spark Your Intellectual Curiosity
The old adage is true: learning is fun. And with CelebrityLife Activities, learning is really fun. Energize your gray matter and rediscover yourself in the process. Learn the steps to an exotic dance and have fun during hands-on—sometimes even feet-on—enrichment activities that are cleverly entertaining.
On select Solstice Class ships, The Lawn Club presents an exclusive Hot Glass Show led by the talented gaffers from the renowned Corning Museum of Glass.

Next, absorb details about the ship that’s taking you there during the Oceans Ahead Behind-the-Scenes and Environmental Programming, starring your ship’s officers. They’ll share fascinating facts about everything from energy generation and naval navigation to onboard recycling.
After satiating your intellectual cravings, loosen your hips and jump in line for salsa, jive, cha-cha, and waltz at the dance class series led by the Celebrity Singers and Dancers professional dance troupe. Now you’re ready for Dancing with the Stripes, a playful version of Dancing with the Stars. Partner with ship officers to show off your new moves for the judges at elimination rounds set to live music.
Remind friends and family to bring iPhones to record the dancing action, then head to the Celebrity iLounge, the first Apple resellers at sea. The Celebrity iLearn series offers up to 18 courses that demystify Apple technologies and take your skills to the next level. Because there’s no better time to learn how to edit vacation videos than during the vacation.
