F.A.Q.s

ONLINE CHECK-IN & DOCUMENTATION

What documents will I need to travel?

See section on Immigration

How can I access the online check-in process?

"Online Check-in" is featured on the home page of Celebrity.com on the main navigation under "Before
Your Cruise". It is also accessible within your My Celebrity account under the "My Celebrity" link at the top
right-hand corner of the home page.

Why should I use the online check-in process?

By completing the online check-in process ahead of time, you will enjoy a quicker embarkation procedure
at the pier.

What type of security is being used to ensure the safety of my personal information?

We use the Secure Sockets Layer technology (SSL) which is the industry standard tool that encrypts
information and keeps the data private and confidential between your machine and our website. This
technology makes it safe to transmit your credit card number over the Internet.

Two ways to verify your credit card information is being protected while purchasing on the Internet:
     Look for an unbroken key (netscape) or a closed lock (Microsoft Explorer) in the lower left corner
       of your browser screen versus a broken key or an open padlock.
     Look at the address line at the top of the browser screen change from "http" to "Https" as you
       access the secure page.

Note: AOL users will not see the padlock on their browser; instead AOL will bring up a security alert with
the information "Encrypted data with valid server authentication."

Since I have entered my immigration information using the online check-in process, do I still
need to bring my travel documents?

Yes, we've made it easy for you by providing you with the online check-in process, but you will still need
to provide your travel documents to the pier agent for verification.

How do I know that the information in the online check-in process actually went through?

Once you have saved your updated information, you will see the word "Complete" on the first page of the
online check-in process. When your online check-in information is complete, you may print your Xpress
Pass to bring with you to your port of departure, along with your personal identification documents.

FOOD & BEVERAGE


What is Celebrity's liquor and alcohol policy?

No alcoholic beverages may be purchased ashore for consumption onboard.

Onboard purchases from the gift shop of any bottle of liquor will be held until the last night of the cruise
when it will be delivered to the stateroom.

Celebrity Cruises will not serve alcoholic beverages while a vessel is at sea to guests under 18 years of
age.

In port, the minimum drinking age is 18 or 21, in accordance with local legal age limits.

What is Celebrity's soft-drink program?

Celebrity's soft-drink program has been established for all guests onboard to obtain soda drinks at a daily
rate of $5.00 plus 15% gratuity.

The purchase of the package should be for the entire cruise and not on a daily basis. In the event the
purchase of the package is not made on the first day of the cruise the guest will be charged for the
remaining days of the cruise inclusive of the purchase day.

Packages are available for purchase in the Plaza Bar (Horizon), Harry's Bar (Zenith), and Cova Cafe (all
other vessels). After the package has been purchased, a soda sticker will be placed on the guest's
signature account card.

Guests with the CoCa-Cola stickers can obtain sodas from all bars throughout the ship and with exception
of room service or the mini-bars. The sodas will only be served when the guest is present and one drink
at a time.

In the event a guest loses their signature account card with the soda sticker, a new folio number has to
be issued together with a new card and soda sticker.




INTERNET ACCESS

Do you have Internet access onboard?

Connect@Sea service is only available on: Millennium, Infinity, Summit and Constellation. This service is
accessible from any guests' stateroom or suite.

minutes. Guest must contact Guest Relations to obtain a brochure that explains the program and
enrollment.

ONBOARD SERVICES

What is Celebrity Cruises AquaSpa Program?

Offering the most complete beauty, health and fitness services at sea, Celebrity Cruise's world-class
AquaSpa indulges both body and soul. Choose from a full menu of AquaSpa packages, including deluxe
manicures, luxurious facials and Aqua Meditation showers. In the Hydrotherapy spa bath, fresh water is
blended with seaweed and minerals as hundreds of tiny aqua jets massage the body. Rasul features a
cleansing seaweed-soap shower, medicinal muds and an herbal steam bath. Ionithermie Superdetox uses
such ingredients as kelp, ivy and clay to promote a firmer, smoother-looking appearance. Personal fitness
training sessions help you tone, shape and rejuvenate.

AquaSpa packages offer guests a balance of treatments and services at a lower price than purchasing the
same services separately. AquaSpa packages can be purchased either prior to sailing or once onboard the
vessel. To purchase an AquaSpa package prior to sailing please contact your travel agent (if you have
reserved with a travel agent) or our Reservations Department (if you have reserved directly with us).

Packing
To better help you prepare for your vacation, here are some guidelines on what to pack. Keep in mind that
'relaxed elegance' are the bywords for dress onboard each of Celebrity Cruises' ships. And though your
own taste, interests and destinations will determine what you pack, you'll need three types of clothing:
casual shipboard attire or day wear, comfortable apparel for sightseeing and evening wear.

What to Pack
Whether on the ship or in a port of call, stylish resort wear is fine for both men and women. For warmer
climates, this includes walking shorts and polo shirts, swim suits and cover-ups, lightweight slacks or
skirts, and a light sweater. When visiting cooler climates, casual clothing that can be easily layered for
warmth or comfort is recommended, along with a raincoat or umbrella, waterproof hat and gloves.

On all Celebrity cruises, it's wise to bring along comfortable, rubber-soled shoes, hat, sunglasses and a
good sunscreen. Remember to pack any prescription medications or other personal care items you'll need.

Evening Attire
Evenings aboard Celebrity include three types of dress: formal, informal and casual.

Formal attire calls for an evening gown or cocktail dress for ladies and a tuxedo, dinner jacket or dark suit
for gentlemen. Elegant, formal evenings include the Captain's Welcome Cocktail Party and Dinner, the
Captain's Farewell Dinner, and a third or fourth "formal" night for those cruises sailing more than seven
nights.

For your convenience, arrange for tailored, elegant formalwear to be delivered directly to your stateroom
with Cruiseline Formalwear. With an elegant line of eveningwear for ladies and classic, stylish formalwear
for men, you'll look as famous as you feel. To order, visit www.cruiselineformal.com or call 800-551-5091
or 305-252-8572.

On informal nights, ladies may wear an informal dress or pants and blouse, while gentlemen may wear a
jacket and tie with slacks. Casual nights call for casual, comfortable wear, so women may opt for a
pantsuit or sporty outfit while gentlemen may choose a sport shirt and slacks.

The daily program, delivered to your stateroom and available at the Guest Relations Desk, will be your
guide to the appropriate attire each evening. Dining in jeans, t-shirts, shorts, tank tops or swimsuits
detracts from the overall ambience and is therefore not allowed in the main dining room after 6:00pm.




                                                                                              Page 7 of 11

Immigration
Before Leaving Home:

Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the required travel documents you will be asked to
provide prior to boarding the ship.

Caution: The requirements described below are either required by government regulations or reflect
Celebrity Cruises' travel policies. They are subject to change without notice.

It is the sole responsibility of the guest to identify all travel documents and obtain and have available
when necessary the appropriate valid travel documents such as passports, visas, inoculation and family
legal documents required for boarding and re-entry into the United States and other countries. For your
protection, we recommend that your passport expiration date not occur within six (6) months of the
sailing termination date.

Guests who do not possess the proper documentation may be prevented from boarding their flight or ship
or from entering a country and may be subject to fines. No refunds will be given to individuals who fail to
bring proper documentation.

Important: Celebrity Cruises domestic sailings are all sailings originating and ending in ports located in
the U.S., Canada and Mexico including Panama Canal sailings. All other sailings are considered to be
international sailings. These include itineraries in Europe, South America and Australia/New Zealand
including re-positioning sailings originating or ending in their ports. U.S. citizens traveling on our
international sailings are required to have valid passports.

Domestic Sailing Requirements:
Starting December 31, 2005, the United States government is proposing the introduction of new passport
rules.

U.S. Citizens: The new proposed U.S. passport regulations would take effect gradually over the next few
years:
      By December 31, 2005, passports will be required for all air and sea travel to and from the
          Caribbean, Bermuda, and Central and South America.
      By December 31, 2006, passports will be required for all air and sea travel to and from Canada
          and Mexico.
      By December 31, 2007, passports or other accepted travel documents will be required for land
          border crossings to and from Canada or Mexico.
      By January 1, 2008, all Americans departing and returning to the United States will be required
          to have a valid U.S. passport.
For information on obtaining or renewing a passport, visit the State Department's Website. U.S. passports
are valid for ten years, so the initial cost averages out over subsequent vacations - especially if you cruise
frequently.

U.S. Naturalized Citizens: A U.S. passport (valid or expired) is highly recommended as it will speed-up
your ship check-in formalities. In the absence of a passport, Naturalization papers (either original or
notarized copy) plus a picture ID card issued by a federal, state or local government agency is required.

Visas: Not required for U.S. citizens.

Payment & Gratuities

Seapass

All Celebrity ships operate on a cashless system. For onboard purchases, you will be provided with a
Seapass Account. This account can be validated with a Visa, MasterCard, Novus, or American Express
card, or you may arrange to pay this account by cash or traveler's check. All onboard services and
purchases may then be signed for and charged to your Seapass Account. At the end of your cruise, you
will receive a completely itemized statement reflecting your charges.


Paying for Shore Excursions

Shore excursions booked on board the ship will be charged to your Seapass Account. To book shore
excursions, contact the Shore Excursion Desk as soon as possible after boarding your ship, as space is
limited. Shore excursions may also be booked through the Celebrity Network in your stateroom and
charged to your Seapass Account.


Gratuities

On the last night at sea, it is customary to offer gratuities to staff members you feel have given you
exceptional service and personal attention. We suggest the following guidelines:

Assistant Chief Housekeeper $0.75
Stateroom Service $3.50
Stateroom Service Concierge Class $4.00
Assistant Maitre'd $0.75
Waiter $3.50
Assistant Waiter $2.00

(Rates Per Person, Per Day)

Note: Bellboys are tipped as service is rendered.


Currency Requirements

Only U.S. currency is accepted aboard the ships, and personal checks are not accepted. Credit cards can
be used to secure cash by using the ATM located near the casino onboard.

Currency exchange services are available onboard at the Guest Relations Desk. The shops, lounges, shore
excursions, and AquaSpa operate on a cashless system; therefore you must use your Seapass Account
when purchasing beverages and services throughout the ship.


ATM

An ATM is available on board all Celebrity ships. You may obtain cash by using your MasterCard, VISA or
American Express card, or you may use a bank card belonging to systems such as Cirrus-Plus, Honors,
Shazam, Alert, Yankee 24, Pulse, ATH, NYCE, MAC, Magicline, Star System, Oath and Tyme.
