Celebrity Cruises is the premium cruise brand of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. What does “premium” mean? Think of Cadillac vs. Chevrolet or Marriott vs. Holiday Inn. All are fine products, but some are just a little bit nicer.
Celebrity Cruises was originally founded by the Chandris Group (a Greek shipping company) in 1988 as a one-ship cruise line, exclusively offering 7-night round-trip cruises from New York City to Bermuda. In the early 1990’s, as Celebrity’s reputation began to grow (particularly for the quality of its onboard cuisine and service), two additional ships (the Horizon and the Zenith) joined the original ship (Celebrity Meridian) and, as they say, the rest is history.
Acquired by Royal Caribbean in 1997, Celebrity Cruises began to expand to where it now has a large fleet of modern, premium cruise ships, including the award-winning Solstice-class ships, that travel all over the world. But, no matter how many new cruise ships they build, one thing will never change at Celebrity Cruises….and that’s their total commitment to all of their valued guests. Although today’s Celebrity Cruises barely resembles the original company that was founded back in 1988, they continue to recognize, celebrate and indulge every guest on every one of their beautiful world-class ships, so that their days onboard are truly days in the sun, whatever their destination may be.
A Celebrity cruise is sophisticated and elegant, but it’s also comfortable and never “snobby”. It’s service with style – from the morning coffee delivered to your stateroom to the moment you slip into a freshly turned-down bed at the end of each wonderful day on your cruise. Celebrity Cruise Line ensures that there is at least one staff member onboard for every two guests, so when you have a need, there’s always someone there to help you enjoy your vacation. Whether it is helping you carry your breakfast tray to your table or just stopping you in the hallway to see if there is anything you need to make your cruise more enjoyable, you will feel like a true Celebrity on a Celebrity Cruise.
Surprisingly, a Celebrity Cruise is not that much more expensive than most “contemporary” or “mass market” cruise brands. There may be cheaper brands in the market, but, considering the quality offered by this cruise line, Celebrity is a true bargain.
So, let Celebrity Cruises show you all the ways that they will exceed your expectations. Because, when you’re on a Celebrity Cruise, it’s all about YOU.
