CELEBRITY CRUISES – Wine, Dine, and Chit-Chat in Style!

No matter where your destination is, a 7+ night Celebrity Cruises vacation will take your taste buds on a journey as well. Cruise with the girls to catch-up and gossip while enjoying delicious and innovative menus that are topped off with desserts no woman can resist. Enjoy a mimosa breakfast or lunch in the al fresco ocean-view restaurant the Porch on select ships, serving fresh soups, salads, and paninis. Relax any time of the day with a cup of foamy espresso or tea at the Vienna-inspired Café al Bacio & Gelateria, where the alluring sweet scents of fresh authentic gelato and hot waffle cones just might make you melt. If you and your girlfriends are staying in an AquaClass cabin, you can enjoy exclusive access to Celebrity Cruises’ Blu restaurant. This spa-inspired venue takes popular dishes and transforms them into healthy, inventive, and flavor-packed ‘clean cuisine’, with menu items including a BLU cheese soufflé and chilled seafood napoleon. The Celebrity Cruises experience also boasts a unique extensive wine program that consists of over 100 vintages. With professionally trained sommeliers and bar staff, every girl can sip on her favorite varietal or discover new favorites at all onboard restaurants. Make a trip to the Cellar Masters where the girls can talk and laugh over wine tastings with the innovative Enomatic wine-by-the-glass dispensing system. Then, gather the girlfriends for a round of classic martinis and cool cocktails like the Chocolate Kiss in the ice-topped Martini Bar & Crush. There is plenty of time for laughs and gossip during girls-only brunches, lunches, dinners, and cocktail times onboard a Celebrity Cruise vacation!
