How many must-see cruise destinations do you have on your travel bucket list? This year, Celebrity Cruises is going to make it easy for you to start crossing them off your list.
A bucket list is a list of things you want to see and experiences you want to have before you die. Celebrity Cruises wants you to stop dreaming about the travel spots on your bucket list and actually visit them. Now’s the time to start thinking of your bucket list more as your #BookItList. Because that’s all you need to do to start checking things off your list: Book It!
To help make that booking process easier (because we get it, planning a trip can be tedious and time consuming in an already busy life), Celebrity Cruises is introducing a new streamlined process to curate your dream trip. At Celebrity Cruises it’s not just about traveling somewhere new – it’s also about the experiences you have while there.
Find Your Itinerary
With our new booking platform, you can effortlessly plan your trip in one place. Find an itinerary with your bucket list destinations included in it. Our #BookItList platform will guide you through what you need to do to find that ideal itinerary and assist you in figuring out which cruise is best for you if you’re not sure.
Celebrity Cruises sails all around the world and takes you to destinations with popular travel bucket list items, such as:
- The Colosseum in Rome
- Santorini sunset
- Glaciers in Alaska
- The Panama Canal
- Machu Picchu
- The Great Barrier Reef
- The Skyscrapers of Dubai
- The Galapagos Islands
- And so many more!
Celebrity Cruises is known for its amazing cruise itineraries, but it doesn’t just navigate the world by sea. There are cruisetour packages as well that you can book (such as one that gets you to Machu Picchu, mentioned above).
Choose Your Shore Excursions
Arrange shore excursions to make sure your time in your bucket list destination is as memorable as possible. Celebrity Cruises offers a variety of shore excursions in each port meaning you can experience the destination in the way that fits you best.
Exactly what kind of shore excursion does this entail? Well, it depends on your interests.
For adventure seekers, depending on the port you’re in, you can go kayaking, scuba diving, off-road 4-wheeling, ziplining, jet skiing and more.
History buffs will enjoy guided tours of a city with a local expert and fast track admittance to ancient sites.
Those who want to experience a different culture first hand can partake in World Flavors, which are food and drink tasting experiences in memorable locations. If you’re on an itinerary with an overnight in port, you can experience the nightlife culture with one of Celebrity’s Evenings Around the World excursions.
Foodies can partake in the Chef’s Market Discoveries, which are excursions that let you traverse a new city with a Celebrity Cruises chef. You’ll visit markets and restaurants and learn about the local cuisine and how the chef chooses which ingredients to pick for cooking. After you get back on your ship, the chef will make you a special meal using the ingredients you learned about in port.
Don’t see what you had in mind? Don’t worry. Celebrity Cruises has a fix for that, too, with our Private Journeys. Work with our Destination Insiders team to create your perfect, personalized excursion complete with private cars, limos, planes, and local guides just for you.
Choose Your Flights
Our #BookItList process also lets you book your airfare in the same place you book your cruise. That’s right, we make trip planning an all-inclusive process and you can book your flights at the same place you book your cruise. This makes it simple to ensure your flights arrive and depart when you need them to based on your cruise itinerary.
With Celebrity Cruises’ special airfare service, Flights by Celebrity, you get three excellent benefits when booking your flight.
The first benefit is points. Since Flights by Celebrity lets you choose which airline and flight time you want, you can still use your points or gain points for any airline reward system of which you’re a member.
The second benefit is price. With Flights by Celebrity you can rest assured you are getting the best price without having to spend time shopping around thanks to the program’s Lowest Airfare Guarantee, which guarantees that you’ll get the lowest price on that flight at the time of booking. If you find a cheaper flight within 24 hours after booking your flight, you’ll be credited 110% of the difference in the form of onboard credit to spend on your cruise. Onboard credit can be used on the ship during your cruise for spa treatments, shore excursions, drinks, specialty dining, and more.
The third benefit of Flights by Celebrity is protection. If there is a flight delay or cancellation, you’re not dealing with it on your own. A flight disruption on the way to your cruise vacation can be especially stressful since you don’t want to arrive after your ship departs and miss your cruise! With Flights by Celebrity you will be in contact with Celebrity Cruises’ Emergency Travel Team who will take care of all the details of getting you switched to the next available flight to help ensure you arrive on time.
Combine all of these planning perks and you have a streamlined way to book your ideal vacation and get ready for your next bucket list adventure with Celebrity Cruises. To start planning your cruise vacation, visit #BookItList today.
