Cruise News: Celebrity Cruises Will Air Olympic Games On Fleet, 'Live' From London 2012

An estimated one-billion-plus people will settle in with popcorn and snacks in front of their televisions to watch this year's summer Olympic Games to be held in the host city of London, and Celebrity Cruises is the first cruise line to announce that it has arranged the rare opportunity for guests sailing on its fleet to be among them.

From the always popular Opening Ceremony July 27 to the celebratory Closing Ceremony August 12, Celebrity will broadcast 'live' via satellite the swimming, diving, gymnastics, rowing, cycling, athletics, and basketball events, in addition to airing daily compilations of highlights from all 26 sports featured in the Games of the XXX Olympiad. On Celebrity ships sailing in North America, the events initially airing live also will be re-broadcast during more convenient times of day for guests to enjoy.

Whether sailing on Celebrity Constellation in Scandinavia and Russia; in Iceland and the Fjords on Celebrity Eclipse; in the Eastern Mediterranean on Celebrity Equinox; in the Adriatic on Celebrity Silhouette; in the Mediterranean from Venice on Celebrity Solstice; in Bermuda on Celebrity Summit; or in Alaska on Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Infinity, or Celebrity Century, Celebrity's guests can stay on top of the Games while vacationing at sea.

Celebrity's guests will be able to view the Olympic Games within the comfort of their staterooms and suites, or in several bars and lounges on every Celebrity ship (with the exception of Celebrity Xpedition, which sails year-round in the Galapagos Islands). The specific locations and event times will be listed within each Celebrity ship's daily newsletter.
