Five Things You Can Expect On a Celebrity Cruise Getaway

Celebrity Cruise Getaway

If you’re looking for an alternative to your usual summer holiday, a cruise could be a great option. Amazing value, incredible destinations and world-class food and drinks are just some of the benefits of a cruise holiday. 

If you’ve never been on a cruise before, and don’t know where to begin, the team at Iglu Cruise has revealed five things you can expect on a Celebrity Cruise getaway.  

1. Quality Entertainment 

On board a Celebrity Cruise’s ship you’re guaranteed to find fabulous entertainment, making your voyage an unforgettable experience for all. From live bands while you relax poolside to the impressive mixology shows in the Martini Bar. Theatre performances will make you feel as though you are watching a west-end style production, with highly trained singers, dancers and performers showcasing a variety of different shows such as A Hot Summer’s Night’s Dream, a combination of the famous Shakespearean play with extraordinary acrobatics. 

You will also find plenty of events and parties onboard your ship. The sailaway parties are a great way to kick off your journey, with live music and dancers getting the atmosphere going. There are also plenty of pre-planned events, such as silent discos, band-e-oke, and evening-chic nights. 

Celebrity Cruises also offers completely unique entertainment that you won’t find onboard another cruise line. A remake of the popular show Deal or No Deal has been adapted for guests to enjoy whilst sailing the seas, complete with cash prizes. Just make sure to book a spot, as capacity is limited. 

2. Spa and Wellness Facilities

Whilst you’ll find plenty of lively entertainment on your cruise, you’ll also find the time for some rest and relaxation whilst using the spa and wellness facilities onboard. At the thermal suites, you’ll find infrared saunas, steam rooms and even a rainfall water therapy room, as well as other unique treatments such as hammam, a modern take on a traditional Turkish bath. 

At the fitness centre, you’ll find state-of-the-art weight machines and cardio equipment, as well as fitness classes, yoga, meditation and breathing classes, designed to help you relax. You can also benefit from InBody570, an analysis which can help you understand your inner health and fitness goals. 

Or if you’re simply looking to treat yourself, onboard salons and barbers can accommodate you to help you feel your best. Here you’ll be able to find personalised treatments, from cutting, colouring, and styling, as well as other services such as manicures, pedicures and more. 

For a fully immersive, next-level wellness experience, a stay in Celebrity Cruises AquaClass® staterooms include complimentary spa access, access to an exclusive restaurant which serves inventive clean cuisine, and wellness-inspired touches to your stateroom such as yoga mats and on-demand fitness classes.

3. World Class Food and Drink

If you’re looking to enjoy delicious delicacies from every corner of the world, Celebrity Cruises’ restaurants offer a variety of options. Globally-inspired menus, crafted by Michelin-star chefs, will enrapture your taste buds, whilst you feast on whatever food you fancy. On board Celebrity Cruises’ ships, you’ll find American steakhouses, fresh seafood and sushi, contemporary French cuisine, Italian and more. 

As well as delicious food, an array of drinks will be available too. Refreshing cocktails, a selection of craft beers and award-winning wines can all be tasted during your voyage. You’ll find plenty of places to grab a drink located throughout the ship, ranging from lively cocktail bars to cosy corners where you can relax in peace. 

A choice of drink packages will be available, giving you a wide selection of drink options. Classic drinks packages include an incredible choice of beers, spirits, cocktails, liqueurs, frozen drinks and wines by the glass, whereas premium packages offer all that and more. Non-alcoholic drink packages are also available. 

4. Varied Accommodation Options

There are many accommodation options onboard a Celebrity Cruises’ ship to suit the needs of yourself and your party. Suites are available for those looking for some extra comfort and luxury. 

Standard ocean-view rooms are the perfect place to unwind at sea. Larger ocean-view rooms, such as the Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom which is 242 sq ft, are ideal for families. Veranda staterooms offer even more space, where with the touch of a button, your entire living space becomes the veranda, letting you walk right out to the water’s edge.

You could also try an inside room. These are the best rooms if you’re looking for a lower-cost option or plan to spend most of your time on excursions, relaxing by the pool, sampling some world-class cuisine or sipping a cocktail on the top deck.

Single-cabin rooms are also an option for solo travellers or those travelling with a group who simply want their own space. They are perfectly proportioned and offer all the same amenities and services as a double stateroom. 

5. Incredible Destinations 

Sailing along the coasts of Italy, Spain, Croatia and Greece is possible on a Mediterranean cruise, visiting cities such as Rome, Barcelona and Athens. Here you can see famous landmarks such as the Colosseum, La Sagrada Familia and the Acropolis, or simply relax on a beach or do some shopping. 

Visiting Iceland and the Norwegian Fjords is also possible and you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. These cruises offer unforgettable landscapes that will make you feel as though you are sailing into a fairytale. 

If you want to go further afield, cruises to North America, Australia, Asia, the Caribbean, Africa, and Transatlantic cruises are also an option with Celebrity Cruises.
