Celebrity Cruises to air Olympic Games onboard

It’s estimated that more than one-billion people will tune in for this year’s Olympic Games in the host city of London, and Celebrity Cruises has arranged for guests sailing on its modern luxury fleet to be amongst them.

From the eagerly anticipated Opening Ceremony on 27 July to the celebratory Closing Ceremony on 12 August 2012, Celebrity Cruises will broadcast ‘live’ via satellite the swimming, diving, gymnastics, rowing, cycling, athletics, and basketball events, in addition to airing daily compilations of highlights from all 26 sports featured in the Games. On Celebrity Cruises ships sailing in North America, the events initially airing live will be re-broadcast during more convenient times of day for guests to enjoy.

Whether sailing on Celebrity Constellation in Scandinavia and Russia; in Iceland and the Fjords on Celebrity Eclipse; in the Eastern Mediterranean on Celebrity Equinox; in the Adriatic on Celebrity Silhouette; in the Mediterranean from Venice on Celebrity Solstice; in Bermuda on Celebrity Summit; or in Alaska on Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Infinity and Celebrity Century, Celebrity’s guests can stay on top of the Games while on holiday.

Celebrity Cruises’ guests will be able to view the Olympic Games within the comfort of their stylish staterooms and suites, or in several bars and lounges on every Celebrity Cruises ship (with the exception of Celebrity Xpedition, which sails year-round in the Galapagos Islands). The specific locations and event times will be listed within each Celebrity Cruises’ ship’s daily newsletter.
