About Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity, the first to grow real grass and build a serious art collection, has long been one of the most innovative lines. These cruises draw couples, families, and groups who want style and comfort without luxury-line fares. The wide scope of daytime activities ranges from the educational (think technology classes) to the playful, such as water volleyball matches with ship officers. Impressive specialty restaurants include small-plate-style Qsine — which serves sushi "lollipops" — and the Lawn Club Grill, where you can sear your own meat.

Expert review of Celebrity Cruises

Best for

Couples, families, and groups who want an elegant cruise experience without paying luxury-line fares.

Not for

People who prefer, say, hairy chest contests to iPad tours of the line’s art collection.

We love

  • Celebrity's upscale innovations include an acre of real gras at the Lawn Club, and watch risque Sin City productions that combine burlesque with comedy.
  • The wide scope of daytime activities includes the educational (think Chinese herbal medicine courses and Apple classes) and the playful, such as water volleyball matches with ship officers.
  • Specialty restaurants on Celebrity, including small-plate-style Qsine (which serves sushi “lollipops” and hot crab served on steaming lava rocks) and the Lawn Club Grill (where you can sear your own meat) are truly creative.
  • The fabulous bars include the Brat Pack-style Martini Bar to Michael’s Club, which serves dozens of craft beers and an extensive bourbon menu.
  • The AquaSpa services include some of the best steam rooms at sea, complete with heated, tiled lounge chairs.
  • Celebrity's Concierge-class cabins fill the gap between standards and suites, with perks such as pillow menus and priority restaurant bookings; spa cabins offer fancy showers, nicer bath products, and complimentary access to those fancy steam rooms (which otherwise incur a charge).
  • Parents of small children will appreciate the in-cabin babysitting ($19 an hour for up to three kids), which few lines offer.

We could live without

  • There are lots of extra charges, from specialty restaurants ($5 to $45 per person) to the Lawn Club cabanas and some classes.
  • Celebrity’s stage shows pale in comparison to competitors’ productions.

    The Solstice class as the best staterooms we've ever had. The half-moon shaped shower door alone is worth the price of admission - no more wet shower curtain clamping itself to your body. Thank you Celebrity! Otherwise the cabin was spacious,... Read full review
