When you explore a new destination, you look to the locals for the best tips on what to do and see. Our captains have traveled the world and are as familiar with the places we visit as the locals. That’s why we turned to them to help create our new Captain-Curated Shore Excursions. These unique experiences are recommended by our captains to ensure you experience the destination the best way you can. We limit these custom tours to small groups to make them even more intimate and exclusive. These excursions were carefully designed to highlight one of the captain’s favorite, iconic sites as well as to include a custom experience that you can only have with Celebrity Cruises.

Tour with Peace of Mind. Authentic. Assured. At Your Service.
