Miami – (June 13, 2006 )
In partnership with Food Network, Celebrity Cruises is preparing to ensure that one lucky couple enjoys a wedding of “infinite” possibilities.
Celebrity’s Infinity has been selected to serve as the platform for “Food Network Caters Your Hawaiian Wedding,” a two-hour special that will premiere during the network’s “Wedding Weekend” in June 2007. Giada de Laurentiis, star of Everyday Italian, will host the entire event.
Food Network on Sunday night launched its third annual contest to select the winning couple, whose all-inclusive wedding will include luxury accommodations onboard Celebrity’s Infinity in Hawaii, a sumptuous rehearsal dinner in the ship’s dramatic, two-level “Trellis” dining room, a designer wedding cake, a consultation with editors from Brides magazine, a beach-side ceremony, and the ultimate wedding reception with cuisine designed by Food Network stars, held in the elegant “SS United States” specialty restaurant onboard the ship.
Couples interested in entering the contest for the lavish wedding should log onto www.FoodNetwork.com to download the application. The deadline for submissions is Monday, July 24, 2006.
“Celebrity Cruises is thrilled to partner with Food Network for its next wedding special, and we think it’s a perfect fit,” said Celebrity’s President Dan Hanrahan. “Our line is widely recognized for providing an outstanding culinary experience within a romantic atmosphere, so it’s the ideal platform for an extraordinary wedding catered by Food Network’s star chefs.”
As a recent testament to Celebrity’s ideal fit for “foodies,” the line’s cuisine and service were among the attributes leading to the brand’s fourth consecutive year of sweeping the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s “Best Cruise Ships in the World” readers’ poll (February 2006), with Celebrity’s Infinity and sister ships ranking first through fourth. Just this month, Infinity was singled out by TravelAge West magazine for providing the “Best Overall Dining Experience on a Specific Ship.”
Celebrity Cruises offers a comfortably sophisticated, upscale cruise experience with highly personalized service, authentic five-star dining, and extraordinary attention to detail. Its nine ships and the line’s service, cuisine and spas consistently dominate top travelers’ surveys. Celebrity sails in Alaska, Bermuda, California, the Caribbean, Europe, the Galapagos Islands, Hawaii, the Mexican Riviera, the Panama Canal and South America.
