We think it’s pretty safe to say that a thorough pampering ranks at the top of our guilty pleasure wish list. The prospect of having our every whim and fancy met with immediate recourse sounds down right dreamy, don’t you agree? Well, this past weekend, visitors to the Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York got a small taste of what it feels like to reign high on the world’s roster of VIP courtesy of modern luxury cruise line, Celebrity Cruises, where the grass is greener—as in, life is better—because of all the ways they pamper guests in style.
The brand kicked off summer this past weekend by bringing its unique Lawn Club experience—a half-acre of real, growing grass on top of their ships—to shore. Celebrity Cruises sent a team of butlers to the Brooklyn Bridge Park with one main goal: to offer city-dwellers a few moments of pure relaxation and indulgence. The team dispensed picnic baskets packed with luxurious goodies to people in the park, with the intent that it could act as a small dose of what it’s like to enjoy a bit of Celebrity Cruises’ iconic pampering. Also, two lucky park-goers were presented with tickets for a Celebrity cruise! It was the perfect way to prove that the grass really is greener on a Celebrity vacation!
The event succeeded in giving guests a taste of just a couple of the perks you’ll enjoy while vacationing with Celebrity—butler service, gourmet food and picnics on the lawn. Our own Editorial Director knows from experience: No one does modern luxury like Celebrity Cruises. Last year on their honeymoon, Caitlin and her new husband had the chance to put the Lawn Club to good use by indulging in lawn games, personalized butler service and a little R&R overlooking the ocean—Now that’s what we call service in style. (And, they sail to all seven continents!)
To celebrate this weekend’s festive occasion in New York, we invited Amanda Gluck, the blogger behind Fashionable Hostess, to style an extra special picnic just for us. We love all of the thoughtful, pattern-packed details that she lovingly arranged amongst the festivities hosted by Celebrity Cruises, and can’t wait to test out her ideas in our parks and yards this summer.
We’re looking forward to the prospect of a warm weather season filled with possibility, and who better to put our trust in than Celebrity Cruises? Our team can’t wait to enjoy the kind of pampering Celebrity offers, and you can, too! Simply visit celebritycruises.com/sweeps.
