With the holiday season upon us, there is no better way to share it with family and friends than on a getaway packed with wonder and fun in the sun-soaked Caribbean. Celebrate in style on board one of Celebrity Cruises award-winning ships and relax knowing that the unrivaled service provided Captain and crew will ensure that every festive detail will be taken care of.
Stunning decorations and entertainment is guaranteed to get the whole family in the holiday spirit. Savor delicious holiday meals with menus crafted by a Michelin-starred chef, ring in the New Year at a ship-wide gala, and make new memories together in the Caribbean’s most unforgettable destinations.
Surrounded by the ship’s fall harvest themed decor, guests will enjoy a Thanksgiving Day celebration with succulent turkey and side specials in the Main Dining Room, Blu and Luminae Restaurants or an Oceanview Cafe Thanksgiving buffet. Catch your favorite NFL games, join in Thanksgiving trivia and arts and crafts, and take advantage of onboard Black Friday retail sales and spa specials.
After Thanksgiving, onboard holiday events and activities transform to offer a winter experience extravaganza. New this holiday season on select Celebrity Edge® sailings, American Ballet Theatre dancers will perform a variety of ballets including a piece from The Nutcracker. To set a truly festive holiday tone, the ship will also feature holiday background music, pop-up holiday themed dance and singer performances on select ships, crews and officers leading guest caroling, and a holiday band orchestra.
Religious services during the Christmas, New Year’s and Chanukah sailings include a Jewish Rabbi or Cantor on Hanukkah, and Catholic Priests who will also conduct an interdenominational service on Christmas. All ships will host a menorah lighting, tree decorating and holiday craft activities, a Santa’s grotto, and Christmas parade on Christmas Day.
