Celebrity Life Activities Feature

In an on-the-go world, Celebrity Cruises offers a let-it-go environment with a series of enriching onboard programs known as CelebrityLife Activities. On any given day, hundreds of these activities take place across the ship. Check out the rousing options and memory-making experiences designed to ignite new passions and rekindle love affairs with forgotten favorite pastimes. Celebrity Today has your ship’s schedule to make the most of every precious moment on board.


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.

A nod to old-world charm, Champagne High Tea elevates the art of hospitality to new levels. Sip some bubbly and chat with fellow guests while a string quartet plays softly in the background. Held in one of the ship’s specialty restaurants, this spin on the English tea tradition features white-glove service and fine bone china, with offerings such as Tea Forté loose teas, espressos, lattes, and cappuccinos served alongside fresh berries, pastries, and scones with imported Devon cream.

Flavorful Food

Flavorful workshops, cooking competitions, and healthy dining secrets are some of the CelebrityLife Activities that await on board.

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 our Craft Cocktail Mixology classes, get the insider tricks of the trade and learn how to recreate your favorite vacation cocktails back at home. Under the guidance of a master mixologist, you’ll learn how to craft inventive twists on classic cocktails.

After you’ve completed the mixology mélange, it’s time to get schooled in the vessels that allow the libations to sparkle. Celebrity Cruises has 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. Celebrity takes culinary-tainment to a new level with the Star Chefs Cooking Competition. During Celebrity’s version of Iron Chef, two cooking virtuosos and their assistants take to the chopping block to showcase their culinary prowess. The winners receive bragging rights as the day’s best chefs. If you’re interested in healthy dining options, join your ship’s top pros for the lighthearted Global Flavors Cooking Demonstration, The Healthy Way. You’ll watch the chefs prepare some of their favorite wholesome recipes and learn the secrets so you can recreate the great dishes at home.

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.


Expand Your Knowledge Base and Discover New Passions

The old adage is true: learning is fun. And with CelebrityLife Activities, learning is really fun. Spark your intellectual curiosity and rediscover yourself in the process. Dive into the visual arts, master new languages and technologies, learn steps to an exotic dance, and have fun during hands-on—sometimes even feet-on—activities.

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. At Beyond the Podium Guest Speaker Series, learn more about the places you’ll visit during your cruise. Absorb details about the ship that’s taking you there during Oceans Ahead Behind-the-Scenes and Environmental Programming, starring your ship’s officers.

Learning A Dance

After satiating your intellectual cravings, loosen your hips and jump in line for salsa, jive, cha-cha, and waltz at the dance class series. Now you’re ready for a lively 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 Specialist at Sea. Celebrity iLearn courses demystify Apple technologies. Because there’s no better time to learn how to edit vacation videos than during the vacation.
