Celebrity Cruises has a message for its guests: Power up while powering down. The upscale line has unveiled a new set of shore excursions, dubbed Take Care of YourSelfie, offering holistic experiences designed to “enrich mind, body and soul.”
The excursions are an offshoot of an existing program the line developed early this year with author and digital trailblazer Randi Zuckerberg. It started with treatments at Canyon Ranch SpaClubs offered aboard Celebrity’s ships – things like fACEial Time, which treats skin care needs related to overexposure to computer and digital screens; Texticure, created with text-weary hands in mind, and Get wrAPPed, designed to help remove toxins associated with tech-related stress.
“With this new collection of shore excursions, finding a tech-life balance now can happen on land and at sea,” explains Zuckerberg, founder of Dot Complicated. Adds Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity: “In our very connected culture, it can be challenging to take time and disconnect while on vacation, even for a moment. We have loved working with Randi to combine our expertise with hers and provide more ways for guests to enjoy their vacation and enrich their mind, body and soul with the Take Care of YourSelfie program. Personally, I can’t wait to experience the new shore excursions, plus the incredible options from the curated spa and fitness menu that started it all.”
The seven new Take Care of YourSelfie shore excursions include:
Power Core’d – On the Mediterranean waters in Ibiza, Spain, this guided Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) Yoga experience allows guests to engage in a complete mind and body workout and connect with the sea – and not the internet.
Ultimate ESCape – Vacationers will discover firsthand the thousand faces of the city of Naples, Italy by land and sea as they canoe through the Neapolitan blue waters and take a panoramic drive.
Morning SHIFT – Foregoing electronic devices, guests shift from the traditional fast pace of their routine with a light, guided morning jog through Philipsburg, St. Maarten.
Hot Spot – In Melbourne, Australia, guests can bathe and unwind as they soothe their tired hands and muscles in the natural thermal mineral waters.
Power Cycle – Guests “sign off” from technology and explore the Roi’s Eco Park Lagoon on a hydrobike while burning calories and enjoying a tranquil, environmentally friendly ride through the blue waters in Falmouth, Jamaica.
Reiki Recharge – Vacationers rejuvenate by finding their Zen during a trainer-led meditation and yoga experience that takes place on the white-sand beaches of Roatan, Honduras.
Flash, Drive, and Ride – Guests unplug and embark on a panoramic bicycle tour of Valletta, Malta for an up-close look at the history and culture of Malta.
