Celebrity cruises are more than a vacation. They are voyages that combine the best destinations and ultimate in service, served by a staff dedicated to ensuring that every moment exceeds your expectations. Many times, the cruise experiences that the passenger receives are truly new and ground breaking in the cruise vacation industry today.
The Celebrity ambiance and service level is decidedly different from the competition. All Celebrity cruises feature one staff member for every two guests which is a ratio unlike any other big ship cruise line. On no other large ship premium cruise line will you enjoy the caring service touch of a cool towel after returning from a days’ excursion ashore.
Luxury Accommodations & Cabins
All ships have received a complete makeover that includes new bedding and 100% Egyptian cotton linens, 100% cotton duvet covers, quilted bedding, European shams, and custom-made Italian pillow top mattresses.
The sizes of the cabins are ample. Butlers are offered to those reserving suites as one of the extra service touches, but the class of service that has put Celebrity Cruise Lines ahead of the pack in accommodations offered is their exclusive Concierge Class. This is a dedicated number of cabins that are full verandah cabins, but offer the services of a dedicated concierge along with numerous amenities that normally are only available in the suite category. Some of these amenities include VIP embarkation, and disembarkation, chilled champagne waiting in your cabin upon arrival, an extended room service menu, a pillow menu, fresh fruit bowl renewed daily, horsd’eves delivered nightly, customized stationary, and, of course, the service of your concierge to arrange priority dining reservations, spa reservations, etc. All of this provided for far less than one would imagine.
Excellent Service Standards
Attention to detail, superb service, and an innovative accommodation experience are the reasons Celebrity Cruises ranked 1st in Best Crew and Service among Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards for the Large Ship category in 2007, and in the same poll took 2nd and 3rd in Best Cabins.
World Class Dining Experience
There are multiple dining options available on a Celebrity cruise. This cruise line does maintain a traditional dining experience available for early or late dining times. In addition, there are casual and theme based cafe’s and specialty restaurants that offer local flavors from all over the world.
Diet considerations are an important element in the superb cuisine offered on every Celebrity cruise vacation. Their master chefs feature a number of dining options designed to accommodate special diets such as diabetic, low fat, low sodium, low cholesterol, kosher, gluten free, and lactose free.
