Celebrity Cruises

One of the more refined mainstream brands, offering modern elegance for those willing to pay a little more. Standard accommodation is bigger than many, decor is chic and the ambience cosmopolitan. Excellent spas, good entertainment and choice of facilities for children. Dining is good and the alternative restaurants on the Millennium and Solstice-class ships are among their strongest features.

The Solstice vessels (2008-12) enhance the excellent range of facilities and style still further and sparked a recent refit of the Millennium ships. Wide range of destination choice, from standard Caribbean routes and lots of Europe in summer to Bermuda, Alaska, Panama, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand and South America in winter, plus New England and Canada in the autumn. The small-scale Celebrity Xpedition operates exclusively to the Galapagos year-round. Gratuities not included.
