The unlimited package starts at $140pp for five to nine days and costs $199pp for 10 or more days.
“Xcelerate is going to give our digitally connected guests a new opportunity to share their amazing travel experiences with the world in real time, anywhere in the world,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity Cruises’ president and chief executive.
“We know that this is what our guests expect – it’s what we expect when we travel too – and we are thrilled to be answering that expectation with Xcelerate, which offers some of the fastest access at sea.”
