Xbox games are set to feature on Celebrity Cruises' services
Xbox games are heading for the high seas as Microsoft's games console joins Celebrity Cruises.
The tie-up will be part of Celebrity's fleet, offering interactive gaming for all ages. Guests on board will be able to take part in Xbox-themed activities and gaming areas, including the Fun Factory and the X-Club.
But as well as working on their gaming skills before embarking, passengers can also arrange
cruise travel insurance for added peace of mind.
Zumba parties and sports tournaments are also part of the fun for adults, all available through travelling Kinect for Xbox 360 consoles in different venues throughout vessels. Celebrity Cruises' senior vice president of operations, Greg Purdy, said alongside existing internet lounge facilities such as the Celebrity iLounge, the new link-up seeks to expand the firm's tech offering as well as engaging with the traditional family holiday experience.
The first of Celebrity's 10 ships to take part, Celebrity Constellation, was back in service on May 5 after a scheduled time in drydock, with most families looking towards planning their summer holiday.
The remaining Celebrity ships will offer Xbox 360 and Kinect for Xbox 360 this summer, and will unfold the full Xbox experience by the end of 2013.
