Accommodations are part of your Celebrity Cruises fare. Your total cruise cost for a Celebrity Cruise will largely depend on the stateroom you decide to book. As you might expect, inside cabins are usually the least expensive, while suites and Retreat cabins will cost the most money.

Regardless of the cabin category, cruisers will have access to a variety of included dining options as well. These include casual options like a buffet and poolside grill. Cruisers can also enjoy multi-course meals in the main dining room for no additional charge. Guests staying in some stateroom categories even have their own exclusive dining rooms. Suite guests can dine in Luminae, while AquaClass guests can dine in Blu.

Cruisers also have access to a variety of onboard activities. These activities range from trivia contests and game shows to enrichment opportunities and Beyond the Podium speakers highlighting local history and culture. Other events like dance classes, karaoke, sports competitions, and demonstrations are typically part of the Celebrity Cruises fare as well.

At night, there is a new production show or headliner act in the theater. Additionally, live music can be found throughout the ship. Often, there are solo guitarists, bands, and DJs in the various clubs and lounges throughout your Celebrity Cruises cruise ship.

While there is a lot included in the price of a Celebrity cruise, not everything onboard is free. For instance, while the desserts and treats at Cafe al Bacio are free, the specialty coffee and espresso based drinks will cost extra. Alcoholic beverages, including beer, wine, and cocktails are not free on Celebrity Cruises either.

It is true that there are several complimentary dining options on Celebrity Cruises cruise ships; however, there are also specialty restaurants. These upscale restaurants do cost additional money, but they are well worth it in our opinion. These venues offer some of the best food at sea and unique dining experiences not found elsewhere else.

The cruise line also offers additional up-charge classes, wine and cocktail tastings, and for-fee events like Bingo. As you would expect, gaming in the casino and shopping in the onboard stores is also not included.

Other additional charges on Celebrity Cruises are the daily service charge, or cruise gratuities. These start at $17.50 a person, per day, with costs being higher for more luxurious cabin categories. Internet access will also cost more on your Celebrity cruise. Likewise, all shore excursions and spa treatments will need to be purchased separately.

Celebrity Cruises offers a new more inclusive pricing structure, ALL INCLUDED. This package includes a Classic Beverage package, Basic WiFi package, and Gratuities for one set fare. If you are considering purchasing any of these perks, upgrading to All Included probably makes sense.

Cruises have flat fees while a few select our   Price a la carte and typically these prices 
are between 40 to 60 dollars per person   If you do want to dine at one or more of these 
restaurants reservations are highly recommended   We suggest you book pre-cruise as popular 
dining times and restaurants do fill up quickly   New in 2023 room service is no longer included 
in a Celebrity Cruise now there is a room   Service charge of 9.95 per room per order with the 
exception of continental breakfast which remains   Free of charge from 6 to 11 am a fixed cost so

for a group with an estate room service will   Continue to be complementary for guests of the 
retreat as well as Zenith Captain club members   Cruise gratuities are service charges that are not 
included in your standard Cruise fare similar to   A hotel resort fee these additional fees are per 
person per day dollar amount that are charged to   All guests usually automatically across all 
statement categories these service charges   Are a means to reward the hard-working crew for 
the excellent service provided during a cruise   Vacation recently Cruise gratuities did go up 
for 2023. now individuals staying in an inside   Ocean View or Veranda will have a service charge 
of 17.50 per person per day for those staying in   Concierge class and aqua class eight rooms the 
daily service charge is 18 per person per day   While guests staying in the retreat we'll have a 
service charge of 21 per person per day however if   You book the Celebrity Cruises all included price 
option these gratuities are included of course if   You'd like to tip any crew members additionally 
for exceptional service you can certainly do so   You'll need to purchase an internet package 
if you want to stay in touch with family   And friends as Wi-Fi is not part of the Phoenix 
Cruise fair and let's be honest almost everyone   Nowadays needs some form of Internet celebrity 
does offer different Wi-Fi packages at varying   Prices depending on your needs the basic Wi-Fi is 
capable of Surfing email and social media however   It does not include streaming or the use of 
Technologies such as FaceTime the premium

Wi-Fi package includes the use of streaming 
apps both of these packages are limited and   Can be only used on one device at a time pricing 
for Celebrity Cruise Wi-Fi is 19.99 per gas per   Day for basic and the premium Wi-Fi currently 
goes for 34.99 per gas per day guests should   Check their Cruise planner as they can often 
score discounts when purchasing Wi-Fi pre-crews   Captain's Club loyalty members 
may receive discounts as well   Your Celebrity Cruise will transport you to 
several exciting ports of call although Celebrity   Cruises does not include any shore excursions as 
part of the base Fair these additional experiences   Are available through the cruise line or through 
third-party retailers at additional costs   Sure excursions can range from inexpensive walking 
tours to several hundreds of dollars for Unique   Experiences the prices are also very dependent 
on the destination with the Caribbean and   Bahamas tours usually being cheaper Alaska cruise 
excursions do tend to be among the most expensive   While there are several included activities 
and entertainment most Celebrity cruise   Ships offer additional classes and 
seminars that can cause an upcharge   These include Mixology demonstrations food and 
wine pairings hot glass classes Bingo and more   The cost for these optional experiences are 25 or 
more per person also reships offer a spa providing   A variety of services for additional costs guests 
can book these experiences such as massages or   Salon Services Free Cruise or law on board many 
ships also have a thermal Suite this area includes   A selection of relaxing experiences such as saunas 
steam rooms therapy pools and heated loungers   Cruisers staying in aqua class Suites will have 
unlimited access to that ship's thermal Suite   However all other Cruisers will have to purchase 
a pass to access the thermal Suite facilities   Like other land-based vacations 
shopping in the retail stores on   Board the ship or ashore or gaming in 
the casino are all at your own expense   If you would like your clothing wash to press 
these laundry services will cost you extra money   Unless you have loyalty perks with the captain's 
Club likewise photo packages special celebration   Packages and pre or post cruise travel expenses 
are not included in Celebrity Cruise thus when   Calculating your cruise budget you'll need to 
account for expenses like airfare pre-crews   Or post-cruise hotel and transportation to and 
from the cruise terminal as we mentioned at the   Beginning of the video Celebrity Cruises now 
offers an all-included Cruise fare which was   Actually formally called always included the all 
included rate includes a classic beverage package   A basic Wi-Fi package and gratuities this 
pricing package is good for all cruises booked   In departing on or after January 9th of 2023 
and it's applicable to all stateroom categories   Including the retreat it's also available on 
most sailings except goes to the Galapagos   When opting for this Cruise Fair all gets 
in the same stateroom must choose this rate   Guest staying in the retreat will 
receive the premium drink package  

Gratuities unlimited premium Wi-Fi 
as well as additional onboard credit   Yes opting for the all-included price can also 
upgrade to a premium drink package for 24 per   Person per day they can also upgrade from the 
basic Wi-Fi to the premium Wi-Fi package for 15   Per person per day but is it worth it for most 
individuals to upgrade to the Celebrity Cruises   All included price well when considering this 
question you first have to look at the retail   Cost of each of these amenities currently the 
classic beverage package is 89 per person per day   As we mentioned before the Wi-Fi is 16.99 per day 
and for most cabin categories the gratuities will   Be 17.50 per person per day to determine if it's 
good value you need to know the difference between   The cruise only fare and the all-included fare 
your particular sailing as well as cabin category   Now based on our recent research we looked 
at a variety of different ships sailing dates   And cabin categories to compare that 
cruise only fare to all included price   And surprisingly for the most part to upgrade 
from the cruise only to the all-included rate   Was about eighty dollars per person per day so 
quickly crunching the numbers it's easy to see   That if you plan to purchase a drink package on 
Celebrity Cruises upgrading to the all-included   Package is a no-brainer it will basically 
be getting the Wi-Fi and gratuities for free   Of course if you don't drink alcohol then it 
probably doesn't make sense to upgrade and now   That you know everything that's included in the 
Celebrity Cruises Cruise it's time to get planning   To help you decide which ship is right for you we 
highly suggest you check out our celebrity Beyond   Cruise review in that video we detail everything 
about this brand new ship the dining staterooms   Onboard activities entertainment and more we 
give you our honest look at this fourth Edge   Class ship help you decide whether celebrity
