When we first heard about Celebrity Cruises we were told that the cruise line suited those passengers without children, and this is understandable considering all the fun on Royal Caribbean cruise ships, like rock climbing walls and Flow Rider. Then we decided to review the Celebrity Eclipse from the family perfective and the results were unexpected.
There were fewer children onboard when compared to ships like Independence of the Seas, which means you could take a lift and not have to stop on every floor thanks to children pressing all the buttons, or door bells rung late at night in suites. While this doesn’t happen on all ships, we’ve experienced it personally on cruise ships with a lot of children.
Now Celebrity Cruises are trying to promote a lot more for families, which includes puppet NERDEL and healthy kids food. Only last month Celebrity announced a new interactive onboard program that features NERDEL, designed for three to eight-year-olds. You can find out more about this puppet on the official website here, or in the video below.
This is great news as now it will be easier for families to enjoy the modern luxury that Celebrity Cruises offer, thanks to better programs for kids. The added benefit of children learning from an early age about their physical fitness, and how to make better nutritional choices is sure to warm with families. The education and fun will be made up of live puppet performances, puppeteering lessons, musical entertainment and puppet workshops.
Most ships should have the NERDEL program by October 15, 2011. Feel free to watch the “Nerdel 3D Virtual Tour” video below, although this is not in conjunction with Celebrity and instead a video taken from the official website.
