FROM THE BRIDGE
Just for you—your exclusive Captain’s Club Newsletter is here
Bring your family and friends closer together for an unforgettable celebration. With festive holiday sailings, you'll find a journey that gives you everything you love about the holidays with none of the hassle. The sights, the sounds, the foods, and the traditions can all be enjoyed right on board. Our stunning festive decor and sumptuous holiday menus include all the heart felt traditions you desire. And the destinations are part of the magic—the Caribbean islands, Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand.
The sights, the sounds, the foods, and the traditions can all be enjoyed on board. Take part in special holiday dinners, a holiday show in the Main Theatre, hear a choir singing Christmas carols, and, of course, get a visit from Santa with gifts for children and teens.
A New Year’s Eve party and countdown is made fun and festive with holiday favors and a complimentary champagne toast. The next day, you’ll catch all your favorite College Bowl championship football games showing in many areas of the ship.
We’ve teamed up with one of the most acclaimed dance companies in the world, American Ballet Theatre. For the holidays, ABT will perform a selection from the famed Nutcracker on Celebrity Equinox on the December 21, 2019 and December 28, 2019 sailings. ABT Principal Dancers Devon Teuscher & Cory Stearns perform the Grand pas de Deux and the Snow Pas de Deux from The Nutcracker*
Earlier this year we announced two exciting partnerships—one with Chef Daniel Boulud and another with American Ballet Theatre. Chef’s Choice 5-course pairing menus are offered on any ship, or suite guests can indulge in signature 3-course dishes in Luminae. Experience incredible American Ballet Theatre performances on select sailings.
We recently ran a contest exclusively for Captain’s Club members to experience some of this magic on a weekend trip to New York City. We were looking for members with a real passion for the arts and who love to cook and eat. Five winners were chosen to attend an ABT performance of Balanchine, Bennett & The Beach Boys followed by a mouthwatering dinner at Chef Daniel’s Bar Boulud restaurant.
Lauren Adams and her daughter, Danielle, joined us from West Palm Beach, Florida. As a young ballerina herself, Danielle rehearses up to 6 hours a day and is a huge ABT fan. Andrew Boyd and his husband, Stephen Rawlings, flew in all the way from San Diego. Having left New York City four years ago, they jumped at the chance to come back for a weekend of culinary delights and amazing artistry. Judith Deboer and her husband, Sergio, joined us from Ottawa. Judith, a painter and lover of the arts, reminded us that you don’t have to be a professional dancer or chef to love dancing and cooking. Julie Coward surprised her mother, Marie Bower, by bringing her as her plus one on this adventure. To win her spot, Julie made Chef Daniel’s Pear Frangipane Cake with Maple Caramel Sauce – yum! And finally, Daniela Moadeb and her sister, Allegra, were the locals of the group. Daniela ran a dance studio and we loved watching her grand jete across the ABT stage after the show.
