I’m Head of Entertainment at Celebrity Cruises so, naturally, I’m going to recommend you experience the ship’s state-of-the-art theatre – it’s an immersive experience that has to be seen to be believed.

 

Last summer, I was lucky enough to be on Celebrity BeyondSM in the
Mediterranean for an unforgettable adventure. The delightful and dramatic Kotor in Montenegro is a favourite place of mine because it’s packed with exciting things to do for all the family.

 

I love the Caribbean and recently explored Perfect Day at CocoCay, which was a wonderful mix of exhilarating waterslides with soothing island vibes. I’m already planning my return trip!

Best of Italy & Croatia | Celebrity Constellation | 10 Nights | 25 June 2024

When in Pisa, you’ve got to have your picture taken next to the leaning tower! My family and I had so much fun there and the pizza is out of this world.

 

We also explored the beautiful Kotor by electric tuk-tuk, which is a brilliant way to see the place. For truly unique views of the bay, stop off to go for a refreshing swim.

 

On board, play a lively game of Pickleball, which is a mix of badminton, tennis and table tennis.

 

If you want to kick back and relax after a busy day, I recommend the Rooftop Terrace. You can even watch a movie under the stars. Heavenly!

St Maarten, San Juan & Perfect Day | Celebrity Apex | 7 Nights | 16 November 2024

If you’re a fan of rum, don’t miss the Bacardi headquarters tour in San Juan where you’ll learn everything about the process from barrel to bottle.

 

At Royal Caribbean’s award-winning private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay, head to the Thrill Waterpark where you can make quite a splash! Or go to the beach for a heavenly day relaxing in paradise at the cabanas. Honestly – you won’t want to leave!

 

One of my favourite shows on Celebrity Apex is Rockumentary. It’s awesome as you feel like you’re at a rock concert and you get to vote for your favourite band. Where else can you do that?

 

I love Eden and being vegetarian I can’t get enough of their Bazaar Bowl! Also, the side dishes in Fine Cut are amazing!

Greek Isles, Italy & Turkey | Celebrity Ascent | 12 Nights | 14 October 2024

I love Santorini. The iconic buildings are white, the ocean is the bluest you’ve ever seen, and the Greek food tastes exquisite.

 

Ephesus is on my wish list of places to visit. I’ve heard so many inspiring tales about its archaeological wonders.

 

On Celebrity Ascent, our newest ship, the award-winning entertainment is custom curated, so you won’t find it anywhere else. We only work with the best directors and artists in the world, so no matter what show you see, you’re in for a unique and enthralling experience.

 

I always make time for the Zero Gravity Immersion Massage at the Spa. The WellMassage 4DR table makes you feel as though you’re suspended in the air. It’s simply divine.
