Celebrity Suite Class...That's Luxury!

Have you been thinking about a cruise but are turned off by the thought of a small, mundane cabin?  Or maybe you were looking for a more up upscale, exclusive experience?  Take a
look at Celebrity Cruises’ Suite Class. 

Celebrity has several different suites to choose from, each one beautiful and unique. The Sky Suite, the Celebrity Suite, Royal Suite and Penthouse Suite are available fleet-wide. The Signature Suite and the Reflection Suite can be found exclusively on the Celebrity Reflection. They’re all large and luxurious with sweeping views of the ocean, and if that is not enough, they come with amenities that make them worth every penny!

Princess Cruises' Alaska Enrichment Programs

Alaska is one of the most beautiful, exciting and adventurous cruise destinations you can choose.  A Princess Cruises’ Alaskan voyage makes that even better by including exclusive onboard enrichment programs that broaden your understanding of the region’s history with fun, interactive experience that the whole family will enjoy!

Puppies in the Piazza Playing with sled dog puppies on a cruise ship is probably the last thing one would ever imagine doing!  But on a Princess cruise guests can meet some of Skagway's newest sled dogs onboard in the Piazza. Feel free to take “selfies” with the pups and meet their dog handlers who will be training them for a life of dog mushing. Unfortunately, taking puppies home is prohibited!

Celebrity Signature Sailing Takes a Look at Shakespeare

If you’ve never heard of a Celebrity Signature Cruise you may be missing out on something truly special.  These are select Celebrity cruises that offer unique shore excursions and onboard activities that highlight a person, place or world event.  For example, the April 23, 2016 Celebrity Silhouette is a Scandinavia Signature Sailing highlighting Shakespeare.

Known throughout the world, the works of William Shakespeare have been performed in countless hamlets, villages and cities for more than 400 years. On this cruise guests will visit Kronborg Castle in Denmark…the actual castle that Shakespeare set Hamlet in!

Royal Caribbean’s Eat - Play - Drink

One of the many innovations that made Royal Caribbean Oasis-class cruise ships so revolutionary was the design of the Neighborhood staterooms. These balcony cabins are unique in that the view from the cabin’s veranda is of either the lush, beautiful “Central Park” area or of the colorful, spirited “Boardwalk” area. As if that isn’t reason enough to want to snag one of these cabins on your next cruise, Royal Caribbean has added some nice complimentary amenities!

The Bahamas Without the Beach

So many Caribbean cruise itineraries include Nassau, Bahamas as a port of call.  It’s not surprising, considering its beautiful beaches and great shopping! However, if you’re looking for something a bit different to do on your stop in the Bahamas let me make a few suggestions.

Chocolate Factory:  Graycliff Chocolatier is a tasty destination located on the Graycliff Hotel’s historic property (dates back to the 18th century) in downtown Nassau. From fully interactive experiences to delicious tasting tours to a fun and playful children’s tour with Captain Choco, Graycliff Chocolatier offers a number of ways to experience chocolate like never before! Learn how cacao beans are processed to create the final chocolate product and the importance of fair trade and organic farming. After the short tour, you are assigned a station at the worktable with a cup of liquid chocolate straight from the small vat, and a plate of goodies to choose from to make your own yummy concoctions.
