Best Large-Ship Cruise Lines
No. 7 Celebrity Cruises
A continuous stream of new-build ships is a hallmark of Celebrity Cruises (five new ships in five years), but it’s the imaginative onboard features that make the cruise line such a crowd-pleaser. Aboard the new Celebrity Silhouette, there are interactive cooking classes at the Lawn Club Grill and self-guided iPad tours of onboard art collections, while the line's "Solsticizing" upgrades ensure that the older ships rise to the standard of the newest.
What’s New: Thanks to the high-tech Reverie Dream Sleep System on next year’s Celebrity Reflection, guests will be able to adjust bed settings (elevation, massage functions) from personal iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touches.
Number of Ships: 10.
Destinations: The majority of Celebrity’s sailings tour the Caribbean, but the line has been expanding its offerings, particularly in Asia and Europe. Celebrity also has three ships that operate out of Alaska, four that sail to Hawaii, Panama, and South America, and three that ply the waters down under.
