Why we love this cruise line
Celebrity Cruises stands out among other cruise lines because of the care and dedication that went into the design of each of its 11 ships, with some of the world’s most renowned architects and interior designers contributing to the design of various ships. Part of the reason why Celebrity Cruises has garnered so much acclaim is because of its lavish public spaces, wonderful works of architecture and its sense of luxury and style that pervades its ships. The ships take guests to some of the most exotic, beautiful and remarkable places on the planet, including the Galapagos Islands with their stunning geological wonders, the pristine beaches and lush islands of the Caribbean, the amazing manmade wonder that is the Panama Canal and the cultural sights of the Mediterranean, to name just a few.
We love this cruise line because everyone gets the A-list treatment and leaves feeling like they’ve experienced a taste of what it’s like to live the high life. Guests can enjoy a broad selection of high-quality facilities that appeal to everyone, from evening entertainment shows to the popular Celebrity iLounge, the only Apple store at sea, and the great selection of dining options to suit all tastes. There is also an extremely low staff to guest ratio of just 1:2, ensuring outstanding service and a more personal on board experience. Everything about these ships is extraordinary; first time cruisers will undoubtedly be very impressed by the ships themselves as well as everything they have to offer, while experienced cruisers keep coming back to Celebrity Cruises because they know they’re going to get an unforgettable experience at an affordable price. With Celebrity Cruises, guests can experience their 15 minutes of fame for a lot longer than 15 minutes.
What is great about the activities on board Celebrity ships is that many of them are enriching and educational so you can take new knowledge and skills home with you. While onboard you can learn how to cook new dishes, learn a range of dance styles, enjoy lectures and talks buy guest speakers on some of the places you will visit during your cruise and earn all about the ins and outs of how cruise ships operate. If you fancy being creative, you can hone your creativity and practice arts crafts, creating great mementos such as jewelry, clay models and paintings inspired by your cruise. For an extra fee you can also go on behind-the-scenes tours to see areas of the ship guests don’t usually get to see.
If you fancy outdoors activities, you can play a game of croquet or bocce at the Lawn Club, play a game of pool volleyball or shoot some hoops in the basketball court and take part in a tournament. Head to the Sun Deck in the evening for incredible views of the setting sun. Back inside there’s the Celebrity iLounge, an official seller of Apple products where you can also learn how to use the many innovative products that are for sale. Or if you would rather spend your money in the casino, you can play a wide range of games and hopefully win big. Note that activities and classes do vary from ship to ship.
Bars & Clubs
The bars and clubs onboard every Celebrity ship cater for the needs of all guests, whether they prefer quitter nights or livelier nights. Each venue serves a wide range of drinks so guests can have their favorites or try something new. Guests can stop by the classy Ensemble Lounge on their way to and from dinner for a round of refreshing drinks. Another sophisticated venue is Michael’s Club, which offers a wide range of beers and spirits from all over the world. Lovers of live music need only head to the Passport Bar to enjoy a range of music including jazz, big band and live sets by a string quartet. For a different kind of drinking experience, the Martini Bar and Crush is a unique frosted bar where the bartenders put on shows while guests sample delicious vodka and caviar. Those who fancy something new can head to the Molecular Bar where a plethora of cocktails are on offer for guests to try. Each ship has a nightclub where guests can dance the night away after a long day enjoying themselves onboard.
Dining on all Celebrity ships is a memorable experience that guests of all ages and tastes will enjoy. Each ship features a lavish main dining room, where guests can enjoy either the traditional and classic dining experience with set times or they can opt for a more flexible dining experience, making reservations for times to suit them. All main dining rooms are sophisticated and contemporary and offer a wide range of delectable cuisine guaranteed to tickle everyone’s taste buds. Menus change every night to give guests an even wider choice of food over the course of their cruise.
Speciality dining options onboard each ship give guests a sample of more localised cuisines: the stylish and smart Tuscan Grille restaurant offers quality Italian fare; in Murano delectable French food is on the menu; for pan-Asian cuisine, the Silk Harvest restaurant provides delicious food from all over Asia. One of the most unique offerings is Qsine, an experimental restaurant where guests order from iPad menus and can enjoy food from around the world presented in a totally creative and new way, with popcorn fish and chips and sushi lollipops just some of the innovative menu items on offer.
When it comes to casual dining, the food is just as good and the service just as impeccable. Guests can visit the Oceanview Café for a buffet featuring food from around the world or pick up light bites to eat at the outdoor poolside grill. For a healthier alternative, the AquaSpa Café offers a range of appetising and healthier options. If guests wish to stay in their stateroom to dine, they can do so by taking advantage of in-stateroom dining and have breakfast on their balcony or a couple of late-night snacks. Though not all dining venues are available on all ships, guests will be able to enjoy a quality and varied dining experience like no other on whatever ship they sail on.
Guests onboard Celebrity ships will be spoiled for choice when it comes to entertainment as each ship offers a wealth of entertaining activities. There is always something going on no matter what time of day it is.
The main theater is where everyone in the family can go to watch dazzling shows featuring popular songs and dances paying tribute to the musical greats. There are also custom-produced shows Pulse, Edge and Remix, as well as a traditional British panto, a truly interactive show which gets the whole audience involved. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy you can watch a European-style circus show or take part in Everybody Dance, a programme that pairs you with a professional dancer for a friendly and fun live dance-off. Throughout the ship you will find many guest entertainers including live singers, instrumentalists, magicians, jugglers and comedians, all of whom love showcasing their talent and putting on a good show for everyone. Note that entertainment offerings vary from ship to ship.
Health & Fitness
There are many excellent health and fitness facilities onboard Celebrity ships to ensure all guests can keep fit and maintain their workout regime however often they wish to do so. You can take part in exercise classes led by professionals or you can work out with your own certified personal trainer and develop a personalised fitness regime. The cardio units come with touchscreen TVs so you can watch TV while you work out if the views of the sea from the floor-to-ceiling windows aren’t compelling enough.
All ships offer a wide range of spa and salon treatments to make everyone feel refreshed and rejuvenated after a workout. You could treat yourself to a massage, a body wrap or an acupuncture session. There are a number of Signature Treatments available, including the Elemix Oxydermy Facial, which uses hi-tech to cleanse and rejuvenate your skin, and the Elemis Aroma Spa Seaweed Massage, which has your body cloaked in a seaweed mask to refresh and decongest your body’s systems. The Medi-Spa offers services including Botox and DYSPORTTM treatments to make you look refreshed and wrinkle-free. All services are completely safe and regulated and are designed to simply enhance your appearance.

One special feature is the YSPA service for teens, which allows teens to enjoy a range of treatments. Father and son can have a massage together, as can mother and daughter. Teens can also have a facial designed to combat acne, have a stylish makeover or an exfoliation treatment followed by the application of Elemis Self-Tanning Cream to give them a healthy bronzed look.
All treatments can be pre-booked. Pre-booking is advisable for many of the more popular treatments.
Youth programmes are available on all Celebrity ships except Celebrity Xpedition. The Fun Factory is divided into three different age groups: Shipmates for children aged 3-5; Cadets for those aged 6-8 and Ensigns for those aged 9-11. All activities are age-appropriate and include treasure hunts, karaoke parties, arts and crafts, sports and games.

On port days, children ages 3-11 may take part in the Afternoon Party at a rate of USD 6 per child per hour. This lasts from noon till 2pm.

The standard policy dictates that guests must be 21 years of age in order to consume alcohol on all Celebrity ships. However, this age limit is lowered to 18 only when the ship sails from ports in South America, Asia, Australia and Europe. For all of Celebrity Cruises’ private destinations and all ports in North America, the minimum age is 21. All age policies are subject to change without notice. All those who are 18 and above and decide to consume alcohol must abide by Celebrity Cruises’ policies and must not provide alcohol to underage drinkers. If an underage guest has a birthday while onboard that means they are now able to consume alcohol, they must visit Guest Relations and show their passport to prove their age, from which point on they will be permitted to consume and buy alcoholic beverages.
Guests are permitted two bring bottles of wine or champagne onboard on the day of embarkation. The limit is two bottles per stateroom. These may be consumed in your stateroom or if you wish to consume them in a public place, such as a bar or restaurant, a corkage fee of $25.00 will apply. Alcoholic beverages purchased in ports of call or shops onboard the ship will be retained and safely stored on the ship. These will be delivered to your stateroom on the final day of the cruise. Note that the ship’s security may inspect containers, such as sports bottles and water bottles and anything found to contain alcohol will be disposed of. Any violation of any alcohol policy could result in as disembarkation or refusal of the right to board; this can be done by consuming too much alcohol, providing alcohol to underage drinkers, behaving irresponsibly or by attempting to hide alcoholic beverages from staff at security and luggage checkpoints. Underage drinkers found to have alcohol will not have the alcohol returned to them.
Age requirements may be adjusted at any time by Celebrity Cruises in accordance with local laws. Additionally Celebrity Cruises holds the right to restrict or retract the drinking privileges of anyone even if they are of the legal drinking age and have satisfied all other criteria.
Celebrity Cruises considers all guests under 21 years of age to be minors, though in some circumstances those 17 years of age and under are considered minors. The Travelling with Minors was established to ensure that adults travelling with children have the authority and the legal right to travel with the children for the length of the cruise. In the case that a child needs medical attention, the child’s responsible adult will need to have the right to authorise the administration of any medical treatment.
If a child is travelling without a parent or a legal guardian, Royal Caribbean requires documentation to ensure that the child’s parent or legal guardian has given permission for the child’s accompanying adult to take the child on the cruise. Even if a child is only travelling with a member of their extended family, such as a grandparent, aunt or uncle, authorisation from the child’s parent or legal guardian is still required. If a child does not have the same surname as their parent or legal guardian, legal documentation is required to say that the child is indeed in the care of the accompanying parent or legal guardian. Suitable forms of documentation include adoption, birth, divorce or marriage certificates and documentation from local government authorities. These measures ensure that all children who aren’t travelling with their parents or a legal guardian travel with the authorisation and consent of their parents or a legal guardian.
If a guest over 21 years of age is travelling with someone who is 17 or younger by the first day of the cruise and they are not their parent or legal guardian, a legal letter confirming authority needs to be presented at check-in. This letter needs to be signed by the accompanying adult as well as the younger guest’s parent or legal guardian and has to give authority for the accompanying adult to take the younger guest on the cruise and supervise them throughout the duration of the cruise. It must also give the accompanying adult permission to allow medical treatment to the younger guest and sign activity waivers.
Staterooms will not be assigned to guests who are younger than 21 by the first day of the cruise unless an adult 21 years or older accompanies them in the same stateroom. However this does not apply if children are in a stateroom next door or directly opposite the stateroom occupied by their parent or legal guardian. Children in a stateroom next door to that of their parents are permitted to have one friend or family member stay with them.
Married couples aged 16 and above are permitted to stay in the same stateroom without a guest over the age of 21 so long as documentation authenticating the marriage is provided.
Onboard all Celebrity ships there are three types of clothing: casual daytime, conservative port wear and evening wear.
Daytime clothing consists of polo shirts or knit tops, slacks or pants and blouses or shirts. Rubber-soled shoes are required for sporting activities and a swimsuit cover-up piece of clothing is required when you are in your swimwear in one of the cooler areas of the ship.

During ‘Formal’ evenings, men should wear a suit, a dinner jacket with slacks or a tuxedo, while women should wear a dressy pantsuit, a gown or a cocktail dress.
The ‘Smart Casual and Above’ dress code applies in all specialty restaurants, including Blu, for every night of the duration of your cruise. The following are not permitted in the main restaurant or any specialty restaurant at any time: bare feet, swimming pool attire, tank tops, baseball caps, T-shirts, robes and swimsuits, while flip-flops and shorts are not permitted during the evening. The ‘Smart Casual and Above’ dress code also applies to all evening performances in the Celebrity Theater.
The daily program, which gets delivered to your stateroom, will inform you of the dress code for every day of your cruise. It is also available at the Guest Relations Desk.
It is Celebrity’s policy that all children should be at least six months of age by the first day of the cruise. However, for any cruise with three or more consecutive days at sea, the minimum age limit is increased to 12 months. All transatlantic, transpacific, Australian and Hawaiian cruises require all children to be at least 12 months of age on the first day of the cruise. This also applies to certain South American cruises and some cruise to other destinations.
Should anyone try to board with an underage child, not only will the child be refused boarding, but also one or more of the adults in the child’s group could also be refused boarding. Anyone who is refused boarding on the grounds of there being underage children in the group will not be eligible for refunds or compensation from the cruise company.
Anyone entering their 24th week of pregnancy at any time during the entire length of their cruise will not be allowed to sail. You will be required to produce a doctor’s letter stating how far along in weeks you will be at the start of the cruise, confirming that you are in good health and that your pregnancy is not high-risk
Smoking is prohibited in all staterooms and on all stateroom balconies on all ships, as well as in all theaters, hallways, corridors, elevators and dining venues. Smoking of cigarettes and pipes is only permitted in specially designated smoking areas. All smoking implements must be disposed of correctly and not thrown overboard. Anyone found to have violated the smoking policy will see a $250.00 fine billed to their onboard account.
Paying gratuities can be done in one of two ways: you can either have your gratuities pre-aid or you can have them added to your SeaPass account throughout your cruise. If you pre-pay your gratuities, you will be qualified for the Celebrity Select Dining programme, which, though subject to availability, allows you to enjoy a more flexible dining experience while onboard.
All gratuities may be adjusted in order to reflect the level of service you think you’ve experienced while on board. In addition, you may opt to personally tip a particular member of staff who has gone above and beyond their required duties. The standard rates of paying gratuities are as follows:
$11.50 per guest
$12.00 for guests in Concierge Class and Aquaclass
$15.00 for suite guests
