Celebrity Cruises uses culinary-themed

Celebrity Cruises' Excite the Senses

Celebrity Cruises will kick off its Excite the Senses Culinary Themed Cruises initiative that consists of eight food-themed voyages based on the company’s new lifestyle book, “Excite the Senses.”

Eight different cruises March-September next year will each allow consumers to become more acquainted with Celebrity’s culinary team through private tastings, demonstrations and events. The first themed cruise is a seven-night Caribbean cruise setting sail March 24.

Each of the cruises will feature the culinary disciplines showcased in “Excite the Senses.”

The three disciplines are “captivate,” which is the dining portion, “accentuate,” which is the wine, spirits, coffee and tea portion and “illuminate,” which is the entertaining portion.

Activities will include dinners in specialty restaurants, cooking demonstrations using locally-sourced ingredients, wine tastings, home entertainment and tips for creative settings, according to Celebrity.

The inaugural cruise is March 24, a roundtrip 7-night cruise from Miami, FL. The activities will focus on food, wine, mixology and home entertaining.

The second cruise is a 12-night Caribbean cruise roundtrip from Cape Liberty, NJ, setting sail April 10. The theme of the voyage is baking, pastries and sweets.

The following trip is May 5 from San Diego, CA to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The eight-night trip is usually a wine cruise, but this voyage will emphasize food, as well.

The next cruise is May 27, a seven-night cruise from Bermuda. Activities will be themed around culinary exploration and Bermuda culinary traditions.

The only June trip is on the 29 and is a seven-night Alaskan cruise that sets sail from Seattle, WA. Featured activities include local ingredients and food and wine pairing.

The next voyage is Aug. 12 from Amsterdam. Activities on the 12-night Baltic cruise will focus on modern and easy entertaining tips.

The last cruise leaves port Sept. 14 from Vancouver to San Diego. The eight-night wine cruise will focus on specialty wines from around the world, tea service, table settings and entertainment trips.

Depending on the vessel, duration and location of the cruise, prices for these trips range from $669–$5,549 per person, per night.
