Celebrity uncorks enhanced wine program

Celebrity has expanded its wine program to illuminate an even more full-bodied slate of offerings representing the world’s most robust wine-producing regions, offering guests the opportunity to taste and learn about more wine than ever before. The updated program presents a comprehensive selection of wines from diverse regions and grape varietals, and a variety of price points. With an aim of delivering an intuitive tasting experience for passengers who purchase wines by the bottle or by the glass, wine lists are now categorized by flavour rather than grape varietal or geographic region. Celebrity’s evolved wine program introduces more than 100 new selections of wines by the bottle, including 20 additional new half-bottle selections. As a result, the award-winning Solstice Class fleet offers more than 500 different wines, and its Millennium Class ships – currently undergoing a revitalization program known as “Solsticizing”- offer over 300, as does Celebrity Century. The program now expands beyond the previous emphasis on wines from Italy, France and California, to include more wines from South America, Spain, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Portugal and South Africa. When Celebrity’s ships are in wine-producing areas such as Australia and South America, guests will now have more opportunities to select locally produced wines and more deeply immerse themselves in the flavours and experiences of a destination. Celebrity’s beverage packages that include wine have also been updated to mirror changes to the overall wine program. The “Taste of the Vineyards”three-, five- and seven-bottle wine packages that were previously available on the Millennium Class ships and Celebrity Century have also been introduced on Celebrity’s Solstice Class ships, and 90% of the wines that guests can choose from to create their packages are new wines for Celebrity.
