Celebrity Cruises Expands 'Celebrity Discoveries'

Popular Enrichment Program Presents Lecturers on Every Cruise

MIAMI, Nov. 22
From world affairs to wines, from culture to caricatures, Celebrity
Cruises' "Celebrity Discoveries" program will enrich guests' cruise
experience with an expanded array of fascinating people and topics in
2005.

One of the most extensive enrichment programs at sea, Celebrity
Discoveries presents up to four lecturers on every cruise. Caricature
artists add an imaginative touch to Celebrity's seven-night Caribbean
and Bermuda sailings, while resident naturalists on the line's cruises
in Alaska, Hawaii and South America offer illustrated wildlife
presentations, live commentaries from the bridge, and small group
question-and-answer sessions about the region. For wine enthusiasts,
Celebrity's wine appreciation program features prominent wine makers
who share their expertise during onboard seminars and pre-dinner
varietal tastings, allowing guests to interact directly with the wine
maker to learn about the evening's selection.

Among the new components of the program in 2005 are lively port
presentations by Celebrity's Cruise Directors, designed to inform
guests about what there is to do and see in each port of call, to help
them make the most of their time in each location.

But Celebrity Discoveries wouldn't be complete without celebrities --
and once again, in 2005, the line has secured a stellar lineup of
personalities who will share slices of their life stories with
Celebrity guests:

* Orson Bean -- January 2 onboard Millennium: A star of stage and
screen, Bean has been acting since 1945. Most recently, he starred in
"Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" and the film, "Being John Malkovich." Bean
is founder of the arts-oriented 15th Street School of New York, author
of the oddball 1971 volume, "Me and the Oregon," and one of the
charter members of The Sons of the Desert, a Laurel and Hardy
appreciation society.

* Irving R. Levine -- January 3 onboard Infinity; May 7 and July 25
onboard Galaxy: Former NBC News Chief Economics Correspondent Irving
R. Levine is one of the most renowned and respected figures in
broadcast journalism. He was one of the first television network
correspondents to cover the economy full-time, winning a number of
awards for his groundbreaking reporting. Today, Levine is a frequent
commentator on Nightly Business Report.

* Dick Morris -- January 31 onboard Infinity; June 13 onboard Galaxy;
July 16 onboard Constellation: Once called "the most influential
private citizen in America" by Time magazine, Morris is widely
credited with driving Bill Clinton's stunning re-election victory in
1996, after the president lost Congress to the Republicans two years
earlier. Morris now serves as a political analyst for the FOX News
Channel.

* Dr. Patch Adams -- February 15 onboard Infinity: Patch Adams, M.D.,
is founder and director of the Gesundheit Institute, which has served
more than 15,000 people with free medical care. Dr. Adams complements
his training as a physician with his experience as a street clown,
believing that medical professionals should examine the relationship
between humor and therapy by using a unique blend of knowledge,
showmanship and hands-on teaching techniques.

* Ernest Borgnine -- May 1 onboard Millennium: Oscar-winning actor
Ernest Borgnine has appeared in more than 100 films, including, "The
Dirty Dozen" (1967) and "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972). In 1953, he
starred as the brutal stockade sergeant, Fatso, in the classic film,
"From Here to Eternity." Borgnine went on to become famous around the
world for his Oscar-winning portrayal of the Bronx butcher "Marty" in
1955. From 1962 to 1966, Borgnine starred in the television series,
"McHale's Navy."

* Walt Cunningham -- May 23 onboard Galaxy: On October 11, 1968, Walt
Cunningham occupied the lunar module pilot seat for the 11-day flight
of Apollo VII, the first manned flight test of the third-generation
U.S. spacecraft. Cunningham executed maneuvers enabling the crew to
perform exercises in transposition and docking and lunar orbit
rendezvous with the S- IVB stage of their Saturn IB launch vehicle.

* Larry Hagman -- August 13 onboard Constellation: Best known for his
work as J.R. on "Dallas" and as Captain Tony Nelson on "I Dream of
Jeannie," Hagman has been a star of stage and screen for more than 50
years. He has appeared in such hit films as "Primary Colors," "Nixon"
and "Superman."

* Cathy Rigby -- August 14 onboard Millennium: A former Olympic
gymnast, Cathy Rigby earned the highest U.S. gymnastic scores in the
1968 Summer Olympics and was the first American woman to medal at the
World Championships. Rigby transitioned to acting in 1981, in the
stage role of Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz." She has appeared in
numerous television programs and starred in plays, including "Meet Me
In St. Louis" and "South Pacific." Rigby won a Best Actress Tony Award
for her performance in her most famous role, as Peter in "Peter Pan."

* Jane Powell -- August 27 onboard Constellation: The star of more
than 20 major MGM musicals, including "Seven Brides for Seven
Brothers" and "Royal Wedding," Jane Powell has been an icon in
Hollywood since her arrival in Tinseltown.

accused Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald at the Texas Police
Headquarters.
