Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity Cruises, founded in 1988 in Miami, Florida and owned by Royal Caribbean Group, has been heralded as the ‘best premium cruise line’. Celebrity’s fleet encompasses 14 ships, including the recently launched Celebrity Edge and the soon-to-be-launched Celebrity Apex, part of the new Edge series. Celebrity’s ‘X’ emblem, stamped on all of its ships, is the mark of modern luxury and contemporary spaces, as the cruise line prides itself on seamlessly combining elegant cruising with a modern lifestyle. Celebrity has four classes of ships – Millennium, Solstice, Galapagos and Edge – the latter of which is the company’s newest of ship classes, created to set a new standard of innovation and luxury at sea.

Why choose this cruise line?

Celebrity’s award-winning ships in its 14-strong fleet feature luxurious design and an impressive range of facilities and amenities, including bars, restaurants, entertainment venues, designer boutiques and spas. The cruise line is stylish and modern, and a great option for first-time cruisers who want a more laid-back approach to cruising with a touch of luxury, as well as families and couples. Celebrity offers unique itineraries to more than 300 destinations, covering every continent, culture and climate. Celebrity Cruises has slightly higher fares, but also offers more inclusions as standard, with an array of complimentary restaurants, room service available at no extra charge (except for late-night deliveries) and a comprehensive onboard enrichment programme.

Cruising with Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity Cruises offers a modern and sophisticated style of cruising. Interiors on board ships are ultra-luxurious, sleek and modern with plush furnishings and elegant embellishments, making the vessels more akin to floating boutique hotels than traditional liners. The cruise line is currently in the midst of an extensive $500-million refurbishment programme known as the ‘Celebrity Revolution’, a project to update nine ships across the fleet and bring them in line with Celebrity Edge and the incoming Celebrity Apex. Celebrity offers a more relaxed and less formal style of cruising than some of her counterparts, with the dress code during the day being smart casual, while the classic cruise formal nights have been replaced with ‘Evening Chic’.

Who should travel with Celebrity Cruises

Guests who are looking for an updated and contemporary take on traditional cruising will love sailing aboard Celebrity Cruises’ fleet of ships. The modern liners effortlessly combine sleek and modern interiors with excellent food and entertainment.
