Celebrity has been partnered with “Top Chef” since 2013, and in late 2014 the two companies kicked off their exclusive “Top Chef at Sea” experience.  The program offers fans and foodies the opportunity to vacation with a great lineup of chefs on the Top Chef Signature Sailing each year.  The cruise line will continue to offer their interactive Quickfire Challenges and “Top Chef”-inspired menu evenings on their ships fleetwide for all sailings five nights or longer (excluding Galapagos sailings) through June 2017.

Celebrity Cruises Plants Over 30,000 New Trees

Celebrity Cruises is growing a greener tomorrow; they teamed up with the Galapagos National Park to plant over 30,000 trees on Santa Cruz Island, in Los Gemelos. With the goal of inspiring guests and collaborators to dive in to conservation efforts in the region, the public private partnership signed in 2014 was made possible over the last three years with the support of 14,300 guests, crew, and the community at large.

Among the seeds sown are Scalesias, Cat’s Claw, Galapagos Miconia, and Thin-leafed Darwin’s shrub. Reforestation preserves the natural ecosystem and regenerates areas in the Galapagos that have been affected by humans and by introduced species. The most planted tree remains the Scalesia trees, as their forests are home to many species of endemic bird, found only in the Galapagos.

As a result of the efforts with the Galapagos National Park and collaborative projects like that between the park and Celebrity, ecosystems are being restored and invasive species are being eliminated. All activities are coordinated by the Galapagos National Park, which provides all the technical and logistical support.

Celebrity Cruises Debuts New Shore Excursions

Published

on

Celebrity Cruises is introducing some new shore excursions, called the Celebrity Discovery Collection. From a tour of Italy’s Amalfi Coast to a private limoncello tasting in Malta, the excursions will open up the world for intimate groups of travelers. The first tours in the growing collection will be offered in the western Caribbean, with more globally throughout 2018.

The Celebrity Discovery Collection was designed with both seasoned travelers and new cruisers in mind. The excursions range from eclectic, off-the-beaten-path adventures to tours that hit the highlights in each port. Each tour was expertly created for those looking for immersive experiences in a small group setting. Each group will have no more than 24 guests, meaning guests will be able to have more interaction with their guide and a more personal experience.

Take a look at some of the new offerings:

  • French Day Experience in Nice and St. Paul de Vence – Guests can venture into the 17th century underground vault and storied wine shop in Old Nice, before heading to Michelin-starred restaurant La Colle-sur-Loup for lunch, and ending in enchanting St. Paul de Vence.
  • Italian Pasta Experience – Foodies will enjoy this pasta-focused tour, where they’ll arrive at the famed Martelli pasta factory by carriage for a tour of the facilities, followed by an entertaining pasta-making demonstration at Torre a Cenaia in Tuscany.
  • Barcelona’s Secret Basilica – Concert at the Bell Tower – Musically inclined visitors will be transported back in time here, with a live concert of medieval music.
  • Valldemossa and Exclusive Lunch in Deia – On this excursion, guests explore the quaint countryside before enjoying a private piano concert and visiting the La Cartuja ancient monastery.
