FESTIVAL AT SEA is the ORIGINAL African American themed cruise. Entering our 28th year of Cruising with an African-American Twist, we've set the bar high. 2019 reaches that mark as we set sail on the beautiful Celebrity Equinox.
The Equinox captures the very essence of premium cruising and luxury. With new amenities not available on any other Celebrity ship, prepare to have your expectations exceeded as soon as you step on board. This is “Modern Luxury” and in 2019, you will be the Celebrity!
On Festival at Sea we bring top-name entertainment to perform for you in our venues. DJ's spin music in our onboard clubs and our White Night and Costume Theme Nights are off the hook. The days are filled with dozens of activities, shows and classes that will keep you moving throughout the week. That’s why so many people make it their annual Family Reunion at Sea.
Some of our exclusive events include:
Speed Dating * Gospel Brunch * Worship Service and Bible Study * Bid Whist * Dominoes * Aqua Zumba * Steppin' Classes * Urban Line Dancing * UNCF Bachelor Auction * Boot Camp Workout * African-American Idol * Urban Ballroom Dancing * Family Feud * Jewelry Raffle Giveaway * Stomp The Deck Frat and Sorority Step Competition * 2 on 2 Basketball Tournament * Gospelcise * African Attire Evening & Fashion Show * Renewal of Wedding Vows * Beach Parties ... plus much much more!
