A big part of what makes a cruise ship a great vacation value is that almost all of the entertainment onboard is included in the cruise price, and that includes the big-stage productions that take over the theater several times during a sailing. From traditional Las Vegas-style revues with singing and dancing and songs you know by heart to high-tech spectaculars with draw-dropping acrobatics and aerialist acts, Celebrity is no exception, offering plenty of big theater fun.
But which ships offer which shows? To help you better plan your evenings onboard whichever Celebrity ship you've booked, Cruise Critic has tracked down all the line's productions shows, including a brief description and which ships you'll find them on.
