This. Is. Big.

Celebrity Cruises offers Go! Big, Better, Best

Thinking about your holiday travel plans and knowing you’ll crave the sun come winter? Dreaming of a White Christmas but thinking of sand rather than snow? When contemplating the Caribbean, you have options on cruise travel. Consider exploring Martinique, Dominica, or the beautiful “spice island,” Grenada — there are so many exotic islands in the eastern and southern Caribbean that await your arrival. Now you can enjoy the finest aspects of travel via sea: culinary delights, wines galore, and ship-board entertainment that dazzles. But the fun doesn’t stop there; you can enjoy shore-side fun and trust that you’ll never miss departure time when booking through Celebrity’s excursion desk.

To wrap up the fun with a bow, Celebrity Cruises now offers a semi or all-inclusive option with Go! Big, Better, or Best. The “perks” of travel are getting better — enjoy the classic beverage package, unlimited internet, prepaid tips and/or $150 onboard spending money. Go! Big already includes one perk, just pick and go! Go! Better perks things up by letting you choose two, and Go! Best includes them all, plus you get a premium beverage package upgrade. The final trimming on this holiday delight is that each additional guest in the stateroom (beyond the first two) receives a 40-minute internet package and a classic nonalcoholic beverage package. To learn more about this great offer, visit celebritycruises.com, call 800-CELEBRITY, or contact your travel professional.

Guest Information:

Sure, Traverse City is fun in the summertime — but it’s even better in the fall!

Autumn is the best time to enjoy the beauty and adventure of this magical place. In this quiet, intimate season you can experience Traverse City the way the locals do, when the shopping and dining are more relaxed and people can take the time to meet and chat.

Fall’s the perfect season for a stroll on the beach, a small-town shopping adventure, a round of championship golf, a wine-tasting tour, a kayaking or cycling trip or a sampling of Traverse City’s famed culinary scene. Come on up – we’re waiting to amaze you!
