Future Cruise Vacations
You’d be hard pressed to find something better than a Celebrity Cruises vacation, except, of course, your next Celebrity Cruises vacation. With that in mind, the cruise line designed a new and improved onboard booking program with more variety and greater flexibility, making the best place to book your next vacation right on board a Celebrity cruise. Choose from two options—Cruise Now and Cruise Later—both with a world of benefits.
By choosing Cruise Now, you can select a specific ship and sail date. You’ll receive an onboard credit, plus the offer is combinable with the Cruise Later offer from the time you book until your final payment is due on your sail date. The new Cruise Now offer includes: a one-hundred dollar deposit per person, onboard credit of up to five hundred dollars, the freedom to choose your stateroom, and the flexibility to cancel your sailing up to seventy-five or ninety days prior to departure.
After you have a Cruise Now reservation, you can give the gift of a cruise to your friends and family. Book up to three and share the spirit of a modern luxury vacation. A Cruise Later gift includes perks like reduced deposits, onboard credit of up to two hundred dollars, plus the Cruise Later bookings never expire.
Top Chef at Sea
Celebrity Cruises’ partnership with Bravo’s Emmy Award-winning Top Chef continues, bringing exclusive experiences inspired by the hit show to cruising gourmands. Building on the success of “Top Chef: The Cruise” getaways, this fresh program gives guests a taste of the well-known cooking competition series through enhanced culinary activities, Quickfire Challenges, and Top Chef-inspired menu evenings offered on just about every sailing. Prepare yourself for a global culinary adventure.
World Class Sipping
In 2015, Celebrity debuted its brand-new World Class Bar, a cocktail-centric venue on board all Solstice Class ships. The bar mixes craftsmanship, showmanship, and premium liquors for some of the best cocktails at sea and on land.
Part of a partnership with beverage distributor Diageo Global Travel Americas, World Class Bar was added to Celebrity Eclipse during its most recent dry dock. The World Class Bar is located on Deck 5 and replaces the Molecular Bar. Delectable creations utilize ingredients such as whiskey, limoncello, cinnamon, and rum infused with applewood smoke. The upscale drinks fit right in with the modern decor, and the bar is just one of many interior enhancements made on Eclipse, including: Slush, a frozen-drinks venue on the pool deck, Gastrobar, a craft-beer bar, and Luminae, a complimentary restaurant exclusively for suite guests.
And the Winner Is…
Celebrity ships were once again recognized among the best in the industry in the 2015 Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards, winning the highest honor in ten categories. In the US, Celebrity Reflection received the coveted Best Mediterranean Cruises, based on global ratings, and a new honor for the cruise line—Best for Fitness—was awarded to Celebrity Equinox.
Across the pond, UK guests voted Celebrity as the Best Of in eight categories. For the third consecutive year, Celebrity Eclipse was honored with Best Cruise Ship from the UK, as well as Best Cabins, Best for Fitness, and Best for Shore Excursions. Celebrity Equinox also was recognized in the UK for Best Overall, Best Dining, and Best for Public Rooms, and Celebrity Silhouette was awarded the top honor as Best for Value.
