On the Galaxy, second of the line's three "Century-class" ships, relaxation and dining are not pastimes - they're rituals. As on the other elegant liners of Celebrity's fleet, there's an emphasis on shipboard well-being and rejuvenation found on few cruise ships in the premium - or even the luxury - price range. And as with all Celebrity ships, the onboard art collection (assembled by Christina Chandris, a member of Celebrity's founding family) is extensive, expensive and attractively presented - yet another illustration of Celebrity's tag line, "a true departure."

Consider these other Galaxy delights:
  • A health spa sanctuary featuring Egyptian ceremonies of milk and ginger; exotic jasmine flower baths; and heated, aromatic stone massages
  • An elegant, two-tiered dining sanctuary featuring menus prepared under the direction of the acclaimed Master Chef Micheal Roux
  • The Celebrity "signature" Champagne and Martini bars for pre-or after-dinner relaxation. There's even a top-of-the-atrium cigar bar with deep, leather chairs and sofas.
  • Outdoor and indoor pools offer a choice of fair-weather leisure space and all-weather convenience courtesy of a sliding glass canopy
  • Contemporary "eclectic" décor. From glass-walled Stratosphere Club high atop the ship to the dramatic, multi-tiered space of the ship's main theater, the décor is fresh and contemporary
The Galaxy pays close attention to the little touches that add up to making a cruise very special - fresh flowers on every dining table, every night; creative placement and lighting of artwork throughout the ship; a subtle mix of distinctive décors - not the screaming "themes" as seen on many cruise ships; an absence of unnecessary onboard announcements; and perhaps most important - an always attentive yet never obtrusive staff.
