Behind the Scenes With Celebrity

Celebrity Cruises is now offering guests an inside look into the world of its cruise ship operations with the new “Celebrity Inside Access,” which takes guests on a rare journey behind the scenes of the Celebrity fleet, including to the bridge and other non-public areas.

The Inside Access programme invites guests to join two exclusive activities, the “See How It’s Done Tour” and the “Bridge Sail Away Experience.” Here's how they work:

  • The See How It’s Done Tour guides a small group of guests through several otherwise non-public areas of the ship, including the bridge, mooring deck, crew gym, theatre, engine control room, prep rooms and the main dining room galley. At each area, guests have the opportunity to interact with expert members of the crew. Each tour is followed by a lunch hosted by an officer in the main dining room.

  • The Bridge Sail Away Experience offers guests the opportunity to join the navigational team on the bridge as the ship sails from port. Beginning 30 minutes before and concluding 30 minutes after departing, guests are given a tour and an overview of the bridge conducted by a senior Celebrity officer. Guests also have the opportunity to meet and take photos with the ship’s captain.
The Inside Access programme is now offered on all ships and available for purchase onboard, with the See How It's Done Tour available at $150 per person and the Bridge Sail Away Experience at $75 per person.
