I asked Celebrity the following 2 questions. Here is their response :
-- Will there be special excursions or onboard events planned ?
Yes. We have introduced some very special shore excursions to visit wineries in the regions. We will also have some overnight excursions to allow for even more time and visits. Those have been posted on our website in the shore excursion section. In addition to the new shore excursions, as well as our already extensive wine enrichment programs, we will have guest lecturers, additional tastings, and special pairing seminars and dinners hosted by special guest wine educators from local wineries and wine distributor affiliations.
-- Will the Guest policy concerning bringing Wine onboard, be relaxed for these sailings ?
Yes. We recognize that guests may be eager to purchase wine while visiting these wonderful wine producing regions. In fact, we have made a change that considers all the wine cruise sailings we offer. The modification to the policy for those specific sailings on Millennium, Constellation, and Century is:
Guests who book a company sponsored shore excursion are permitted to bring back 2 bottles of wine per stateroom on the day of the excursion. When consumed in any shipboard restaurant, bar or dining venue, each bottle will be subject to a $25 corkage fee. This amendment to the policy will be available on our website and communicated to Travel Agents.
Do you know if this has been implemented on the website? Would love to have this printed straight from the website to take along on our 11/18/12 Immersive Wine cruise
. (BTW, I did try a search.)
