All about Celebrity Cruise Line
If you like a little luxury, you can get more of it for less money on Celebrity than almost any other cruise line. The most luxurious cruise lines can cost up to $5000 a person for a seven-day cruise in a balcony cabin, while the price of a similar cruise on Celebrity is often only $1000.
Our experienced opinion is that while Celebrity’s ships and cabins, overall, may not be significantly better than the newer ships and cabins on the other bigger, less expensive lines, their reputation and slightly higher prices do seem to attract a more sophisticated and cultured cruiser. So if the caliber of the other passengers is something that matters to you - definitely consider Celebrity.
While Celebrity ships are the same size as the other big lines whose ships hold an average of 2000 passengers (Carnival, Royal, Holland, Norwegian, MSC or Oceania), Celebrity's luxury and style are in a class of their own.
Celebrity succeeds in setting a higher standard with lots of little things they call "tastes of luxury" that include: welcome champagne and mimosas, cold towels and free sorbet pool side, expanded dining options like a sushi cafe, sunset yoga and pilates classes and more.
Celebrity was the first to create a park at sea with their "Lawn Clubs" that include a green grassy half acre where folks can hang out and wander as they look out over the high seas. The only drawback, it’ll make you miss walking your dog.
Celebrity cruise cabins are sumptuous, large and modern, with all new furniture, flat-screen TV’s, and internet cafes. Many ships offer in-room wifi as well!
All staterooms include twice-daily maid service, 24-hour complimentary room service, robes, tote back, bath products, premium mattresses, plush duvets, pillows, 100% pure Egyptian cotton linens, private mini-bar and more....
Celebrity's focus on food and wine is evident: their ships all feature some very impressive culinary venues and menus. Menus are created by a James Beard featured Mater Chef and suffice for even the pickiest foodie snob.
If you like wine, you're going to LOVE the Enomatic wine bar, which allows guests to select and serve themselves glasses of wine with a single touch of a button. (It's a wine-by-the-glass self-dispensing system!) You can choose from a one ounce, 2.5 ounce or 5 ounce serving - so over the course of your cruise you can safely sample dozens of different fine wines! Celebrity is THE cruise line for wine connoisseur, as there are over 500 different wines aboard.
The Celebrity Solstice-class of ship was first introduced in 2008, and was such a successful stunner, four more Solstice-style ships soon followed: Equinox in 2009, Eclipse in 2010, Silhouette in 2011 and the newest of all, Reflection in 2012. If you can afford to get on any of these ship, you'll be in for a very nice experience. These are large, luxurious ships, which hold between 2800 and 3000 passengers and 85% of their cabins have balconies. Check out the prices on our booking engine.

environments like the Galapagos. Celebrity is one of the only major cruise lines that has a ship that is dedicated to the Galapagos. The Expedition does 7 to 10 day cruises of the Galapagos islands all year around. Our military discount on all Celebrity Galapagos cruises includes free gratuities!
