Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity  Cruises has the most stunning cruise ships to enter service in decades, heralding an exciting new era in cruising. Truly innovative, these floating masterpieces are the result of Celebrity’s collaboration with a team of world-class architects, designers and stylists. Where else at sea would you find half an acre of manicured lawn on deck where you can enjoy croquet, lawn bowls or a picnic, a Martini Ice Bar with its sleek, frosted main bar serving over 100 different flavours of vodka martini, a glass-blowing studio, Cellar masters wine bar inspired by the vineyards of Napa Valley, bringing to life the experience of a global wine tour while you learn about and taste a large variety of wines from around the world & no less than ten stunning dining venues? Truly inspired accommodations, 15% larger on average than on any other Celebrity ship, 85%  of these with private balconies.

In April 2012, Celebrity Eclipse sails from Southampton for her third season cruising the must see destinations of the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, Russia and for the first time, Norwegian Fjords & Iceland.

As you would expect, Celebrity ships have a wide range of dining venues to tempt guests including Murano’s speciality restaurant, decorated with handmade Venetian Murano Glass chandeliers – a dining experience not to be missed; Tuscan Grille sumptuous Italian steak and seafood; Silk Harvest – offering the very best in Asian cuisine and Qsine, a unique dining venue with tastes from around the world.

A Celebrity Cruise is designed to delight you, pamper you, entertain & renew you, stimulate and amaze you because there are really only 2 kinds of cruises – the Celebrity Cruises and everything else.

Many cruise lines claim to offer beautiful accommodations, great dining experiences, and excellent service, but those attributes consistently earn Celebrity Cruises recognition as one of the top cruise lines in the world including Conde Nast Traveler, Cruise Critic and Travel Weekly “Globe Awards”, which this year has honoured Celebrity as “Best Premium Cruise Line.” Those and ongoing press reviews year after year continuously recognize Celebrity for its inovative style and design, widely varied, high quality culinary experiences and personalized service with a guest-to-crew ratio of nearly 2:1 and 24/7 butler service in every luxurious suite.
