A cruise vacation isn’t just about experiencing other destinations and cultures. A cruise can also give you the opportunity to expand your own personal knowledge base and skillset while onboard. Celebrity Cruises puts an emphasis on offering a variety of enrichment, educational, and entertainment activities on its ships. Not only will a #BookItList help you cross off some of those New Year's bucket list items you have, it may also help you achieve some other common New Year’s Resolutions.

Resolution #1: Learn a New Skill
Celebrity Cruises offers many ways for you to expand your repertoire of personal talents while sailing on one of its ships. Through the CelebrityLife program your days at sea can be both fun and educational. Take a self-guided art tour, do a wine and food pairing class, sign up for dance lessons, take computer software classes, and much more.

Resolution #2: Make More Time for Things that Thrill You
It’s easy to get into the mundane routine of everyday life and forget to break out of it. That’s one reason people love traveling so much – the chance to experience something different. In addition to expanding your cultural scope, take some of your travel time to do something that truly thrills you. Celebrity Cruises’ Private Journeys help make this possible.

Private Journeys are an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience that will make you the envy of all your friends. They are personally tailored shore excursions that include private limos, plane, tour guides and more – just for you.

Resolution #3: Get Fit
A common New Year’s Resolution is to get fit and a common cruise myth is that there are endless buffets onboard that will make this hard to keep. Well, not on Celebrity Cruises. While sailing on your Celebrity ship you’ll find a daily schedule of fitness classes or you can hit up the onboard gym or running track at your leisure. There are also spa-inspired, healthy cuisine options in the main dining room each night or you can stay in an Aqua-class stateroom or suite and get access to Blu, a specialty restaurant that showcases healthy, fresh ingredients in every dish.

Resolution #4: Read More
If less Internet scrolling and more in-depth reads are what you’re looking for in 2018, a cruise can help. Pack that must-read thriller or old classic novel you’ve been meaning to read and then relax by the pool with a book in one hand and a chilled drink in the other. A cruise ship is the perfect place to unwind with some reading since once you’re onboard you don’t have outside stressors competing for your attention, just the calming hue of the blue sea. Not sure what you want to read? Head to the ship’s library and pick out a book and then sit there for some peace and solitude.

Resolution #5: Spend More Time with Family
If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is spending more time with family, a cruise is an excellent way to do it. Not only will you have plenty of time to hang out together on the ship with interactive family dinners (teenagers will love Qsine!) and cruise activities (attend shows together after dinner each night), you can also make quality memories together while in port by doing fun and exciting shore excursions that foster laughter and conversation.

Resolution #6: Unplug
A cruise is a great way to unplug from daily demands. Let the waves lull you out of your routine and into a laidback state of bliss. After all, your boss can’t expect you to answer that email right away if you’re sailing in the middle of the ocean…right? Whether or not your place of work is up to speed (no pun intended) on how fast Internet works on cruise ships these days (hint: it’s fast) you’ll still be able to unplug by embracing the cruise life where you only have to unpack once, food is served to you, and you don’t have to think about the day’s plan anymore than you want to – Celebrity Cruises even makes port time easy for you with a variety of expertly planned shore excursions to choose from in each new destination.

Of course, if you do need to be connected (this is the 21st century after all) Celebrity Cruises makes it easy for you to do so with our Unlimited Internet package. For one daily rate during the length of your cruise you’ll have access to high-speed Wi-Fi whenever you want it.

Resolution #7: Visit an Exciting New Destination
Celebrity Cruises visits prime bucket list destinations all over the world, such as Italy, Thailand, the Galapagos, Greece, St. Lucia, Alaska cruises, and so many more. Pick the right itinerary and you can cross off numerous destinations on your New Year's bucket list as you sail from one amazing place to another.
