Two Game-Changing Partnerships Unveiled For Celebrity (And One Is Michelin-Starred)

Celebrity has just joined forces with two legendary names in the entertainment and culinary worlds.

Both names include the iconic American Ballet Theatre and world-renowned Michelin-starred Chef Daniel Boulud.

The cutting-edge partnerships will help to further create unforgettable onboard experiences unlike anything guests have ever seen at sea.

“Our guests know to expect something unique, upscale and unexpected each time they step onboard.


By partnering with American Ballet Theatre and the world’s leading culinary authority, Daniel Boulud, we are creating experiences that won’t just meet those expectations— but shatter them,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.

“At Celebrity Cruises, we are always looking for new ways to open up the world, not only through the places the brand visits, but also through world-class entertainment and culinary experiences,” said Brian Abel, SVP, Hotel Operations, Celebrity Cruises.

“I cannot think of better partners than American Ballet Theatre, who will bring the best classical dance experience on board, and Chef Daniel Boulud, a chef that all other chefs admire and respect for hospitality, creativity and excellence both in the kitchen and dining room.” 

A Standing Ovation for the American Ballet Theatre

Celebrity is teaming up for a pas de deux with one of the most acclaimed dance companies in the world!

The American Ballet Theatre has been a pillar in New York City’s cultural community and America’s artistic landscape for nearly 80 years.


It is a perfect partnership for Celebrity guests as it is used to wowing audiences in all 50 states and in 45 countries and performing for nearly 300,000 annually.

The two joining forces is a first in the industry as guests will be treated to the best classical dance experience at sea.

Passengers can:

-Enjoy exclusive American Ballet Theatre guest performances on select ships

-Join the dancers for intimate seminars

-Ballet barre classes

-Embark on excursions to American Ballet Theatre performances in some of the most dynamic ports of call


“American Ballet Theatre’s mission is to bring the best of ballet to the widest possible audience,” said American Ballet Theatre Executive Director Kara Medoff Barnett.

Michelin Star Makes Star Appearance

Chef Daniel Boulud is a name every food-lover knows and is founder of an award-winning restaurant group that spans the world.

His collaboration with Celebrity and Associate Vice President of Food and Beverage Operations, Cornelius Gallagher, will make him the brand’s own Michelin-starred Chef.


As Celebrity’s Global Culinary Brand Ambassador, Chef Boulud will design signature dishes for Luminae, Celebrity’s exclusive restaurant for suite class guests.

There will also be a new introduction of Chef’s Table by Daniel Boulud, complete with a private galley tour and five-course dining experience.

“I’m excited to embark on this partnership with Celebrity Cruises as we share a common passion for excellence, personalized service and creative cuisine for our guests,” said Boulud.

“I’m constantly inspired by the local markets in other destinations when I travel around the world and those influences always make their way on to my menus.


I look forward to offering cruise guests a taste of my cuisine that compliments Celebrity’s global offering.”

Both new experiences with the American Ballet Theatre and Chef Boulud will begin rolling out across the fleet in 2019.

It will begin with Celebrity Summit, followed by Celebrity Equinox and Celebrity Millennium.
