Celebrity Cruises has entered into a new partnership with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) to offer Celebrity’s guests the opportunity to make a difference while on vacation. A lineup of onboard experiences will help raise awareness and funds for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Kicking off the effort was the sale of tickets to a two-night cruise experience aimed at culinary enthusiasts. The sale was curated by leading local experience site, Gilt City, and sold out in a few hours.
Celebrity has shaped a lineup of ways for its guests to help support BCRF. From donating $2 from the sale of each copy of its rich lifestyle book, Excite The Senses, during the month of October, to the creation of an exclusive non-alcoholic pink cocktail for sale onboard with $3 per drink to go to BCRF, to the auction of one-of-a-kind handblown pieces of glass from its industry-first Hot Glass Show on three Solstice Class ships with proceeds to go to BCRF and more, the activities will present vacationers with an easy way to support the BCRF. Celebrity will introduce additional activities and offerings in the coming months.
The first activity to go public was a Gilt City sale of tickets to an exclusive two-day cruise package on Celebrity’s newest ship, Celebrity Silhouette, during her stateside debut in New Jersey in November. Participating guests will enjoy a host of activities focused on culinary exploration – one of the cruise line’s mainstays – in the form of a dinner hosted by Celebrity Cruises Master Chef Jacques Van Staden, and also featuring the cuisine of top chefs Claudia Fleming, Andrea Reusing, Lee Anne Wong, Daisy Martinez, and Alex Guarnaschelli.
With a $700 donation from each package to go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Celebrity Cruises will donate a minimum of $50,000 to BCRF.
Tickets to this exclusive epicurean adventure were $900 per couple and include all meals, cocktails, and wine. They were sold exclusively on www.giltcity.com/newyork/celebritycruises and sold out in less than nine hours.Visit www.celebritycruises.com and www.giftsbycelebrity.com
