Celebrity Activities

Onboard pursuits designed to be the life of your vacation.

People In Yoga Class


In an on-the-go world, Celebrity Cruises offers a let-it-go environment with a series of programs collectively known as Celebrity Activities that cover four categories of interest: Savor, Discover, Play, and Renew. On any given day, hundreds of these experiences take place across the ship. The following is a small sampling of the rousing options designed to ignite new passions and rekindle love affairs with forgotten favorite pastimes. Check Celebrity Today for your ship’s schedule and make the most of every precious moment on board.

Savor the Moment

Most guests know Murano, the upscale French restaurant, for fine dining at dinnertime; however, with Celebrity Activities’ exclusive culinary experience, a delectable daytime meal is on the books. Lunch on classic French dishes from a menu with an expansive selection of artisanal cheeses and an extensive wine list.

Speaking of wine, join the connoisseur crowd for Wine Appreciation 101, where a certified sommelier teaches how to discern varietals and vintages. Feeling a spirited urge for cocktails? Try Mixology 101 to acquire the skills to master the mojito and other liquid concoctions. During Craft Cocktail Mixology, learn insider tricks and inventive twists to recreate your favorite vacation cocktails back 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.

And 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.

After all that learning, you’ve likely worked up an appetite. Cinephiles can take those cravings up to the Rooftop Terrace for a movie presentation, A Taste of Film, where bites and beverages are served alfresco.

Renew Your Body, Mind, and Chi

Canyon Ranch and the all-new Spa on Edge Class take wellness to the next level with a collection of seminars and classes designed to help cleanse your mind, body, and soul. Stretch your limits through Vinyasa sequences during an enlightening yoga class. Appropriate for all experience levels, this class focuses on posture, movement, and breath. Strengthen and lengthen lean muscle as you learn different poses and deep-breathing techniques for relaxation, strength, and balance. You can also clear your mind with audio-guided meditation using silent headphone technology.

Pampering At Spa

Let the pampering begin.


There are also a variety of fitness classes at both Canyon Ranch and The Spa. The daily schedules present endless opportunities to learn, get fit, and have fun. Consult one-on-one with the onboard experts and get feedback on how to achieve your optimal health, fitness, and lifestyle goals.

Could you have been a contender? Find out at Celebrity’s debut of cardio boxing at sea, designed to knock you out. Or get the dance party started with Pulse Barre classes. The high-intensity, low-impact workout uses the ballet barre to incorporate balance as a key exercise element. If the dance is not your stage, try HIIT, high-intensity interval training where bursts of intense activity and short recovery periods get your heart and muscles pumping. And don’t miss out on the Peloton trend, even while cruising. Cycle on your own schedule with a live-streaming class.

Play Up Your Competitive Spirit

Ignite your competitive spirit and square off against new friends during the Port vs. Starboard games taking place throughout the cruise, pitting each side of the ship in head-to-head challenges. Or challenge your knowledge in the most fun way possible with trivia tournaments and full-on game shows. Karaoke has more than 6,000 songs to belt out for friends, family, and fellow brave, singing souls. Or you can join in the silent revolution with Dueling DJs Silent Disco, featuring a pair of mix masters spinning their favorites. Choose the channel playing your top pick and dance your heart out. Getting lucky in the casino is always a blast, and with the various lessons and tournaments available, you can make a date with destiny and try your hand at blackjack, poker, and roulette. Tech-savvy gamers can plug into trivia contests and interactive video games. Fun for young guests and traveling teens awaits with crafts, toys, video games, and more—designed to keep everyone on your vacation smiling. Tweens and teens will love the supervised happenings at the X-Club, while family play awaits with archery, where the whole gang can take aim and shoot for the bull’s-eye. Those more actively inclined can brush up on lawn games on a quarter acre of grass at sea. Play croquet, bocce, golf-putting, beanbag toss, or basketball, Ping-Pong, water volleyball, then join in fun-filled tournaments against the ship’s officers. Or loosen your hips and jump in line for salsa, jive, cha-cha, and waltz at the dance class series led by the ship’s professional dancers. This is your vacation, so play it up, and bring on the games.

Together they’re focusing on the world’s oceans, conserving everything from coral reefs to coastal wildlife. They’ll be launching a variety of onboard activities so you can share in the passion to conserve our seas and coral reefs.

Entertain Your Artsy Side

Be mesmerized by Celebrity’s variety of onboard entertainment. Stimulate your senses with high-energy productions, impromptu musical acts, pop-up performances, and late-night burlesque showcases. And now, through an exclusive partnership that’s a first in the industry, experience classical dance at sea with American Ballet Theatre. Take in a guest performance, and partake in its ballet barre class.

On Celebrity, all the ship’s a stage and A-list producers, writers, and entertainers are forging bold new trends, producing shows, concerts, and happenings that amaze at every turn. Top-quality performers have something rare to offer. Sound engineers, lighting designers, and technicians create new looks and audio for the shows, bringing the productions to life. Scenic designers create finishing elements, costume designers bring sketches to life reflecting the spirit of every performer in every show. All across the fleet, Celebrity is invested in its entertainment program.

Not just designed for the theaters, that entertainment program is meant to be experienced throughout the ship. Try it with Silent Disco. Don some headphones, choose from three types of music, and start cutting a rug.
