In 2003, seven of Celebrity Cruise Lines 10 ships were ranked among the top 10 large ships in Conde Nast Traveler’s “World’s Greatest Ships” readers’ survey. It’s no wonder Celebrity Cruises are ranked among the best – each ship offers a little something different to suit a wide variety of tastes, styles and budgets.
Celebrity Cruise Ships
Celebrity Cruise Lines has the youngest fleet sailing today, yet its ships are ranked among the best in the world. Celebrity’s fleet is divided into four classes including: Century Class, Millennium Class, Xpedition Class, and Journey Class.
Century Class features Century, Galaxy and Mercury. Century Class vessels entered service between 1995 and 1997 and are popular for their contemporary design, signature Celebrity amenities and use of modern technology.
Millennium Class features four vessels that were all introduced in the year 2000. Constellation, Infinity, Millennium, and Summit are considered the most technologically advanced vessels out of the entire fleet. They are also among the most spacious and luxurious of the Celebrity cruise ships.
Xpedition class features Celebrity Xpedition. Celebrity Xpedition was designed with the adventurous traveler in mind, meaning travelers interested in wandering off the beaten path. Smaller than the rest of the Celebrity cruise ships, Xpedition offers the passenger a more intimate environment and more personalize service. Xpedition, Celebrity’s newest ship, accommodates 98 comfortably.
Finally, Celebrity Cruise Line’s Journey Class features Celebrity Journey and Celebrity Quest. Celebrity Journey accommodates 700 comfortably and features a full-service spa and martini bar, while Celebrity Quest features a Martini Bar, Cova CafÃ©, a Casino, Michael’s Club, Boutique C, the AquaSpa by Elemis and butler service in every stateroom. Celebrity Quest accommodates 710 comfortably.
Celebrity Cruise Destinations
Because of the smaller size of some of Celebrity’s vessels, they can visit exotic locations with ease and they also allow the passenger to get up close and personal with the environment and nature. This doesn’t mean that the larger ships don’t travel to exciting places. Fortunately, there are plenty of amazing destinations around the world to accommodate big or small ships.
Celebrity Cruise destinations include: Alaska, Australia/New Zealand, Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada/New England, Caribbean, Europe, Galapagos, Hawaii, Pacific Northwest, Panama Canal, South America and Transatlantic. Celebrity Cruises offers short and extended cruises anywhere from a few days up to 19 days or more. A variety of land and shore excursions are featured depending on destination and Celebrity also offers pre and post cruise package deals.
