One of the features that make the Celebrity cruise experience unique on their new Solstice-class ships is The Lawn Club — thousands of square feet of real grass where you can play games, dine, even enjoy a picnic in a private alcove. This month, Celebrity is bringing that same experience — minus the ocean — to New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. On June 10 and 11, they are recreating “The Lawn Club Experience” in Vanderbilt Hall. They note local commuters and passersby can participate in various Lawn Club Experience activities, including:
— Jazz Music at the Lawn Club – Lincoln Center presents the Jon-Erik Kellso Trio (June 10) and Mona’s Hot Three (June 11) to play jazz throughout the afternoon as crowds escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
— Celebrity Cruises Lawn Club Croquet Challenge – No need to wear all white, as anyone can have the chance to pick up a mallet and knock croquet balls through wickets to win prizes.
— Sit, Smile, Snap – Guests can relax in the oversized Celebrity Cruises Adirondack Chair and have their picture taken to instantly share with friends across the web.
Fresh 102.7 WWFS-FM – Fresh 102.7-FM DJ, Christine Richie will spin great tunes and emcee all the exciting Celebrity Cruises activities throughout the event.
— Custom Spice Rub Station – Guests can channel their inner chefs and create their own spice rubs, just like at The Lawn Club Grill, the popular outdoor grilling specialty restaurant found on the Lawn Club of the two newest ships: Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Reflection.
— Sweepstakes – By participating in any of the Lawn Club activities at Grand Central Terminal, guests can enter to win a free Celebrity Cruises trip for two to Bermuda.
This on-land invasion runs in conjunction with Celebrity’s Grand Sale Event that promotes sailings from January to December 2014. For two days only, guests can save $1,000 on a Europe sailing, or $500 when booking a cruise to Alaska, Bermuda or the Caribbean.
