The New England Patriots and New York Jets have long been National Football League rivals. The two teams most recently faced off last month, with the Patriots, led by a resurgent Tom Brady, just barely beating out the Jets with a score of 27-25. The teams have now met a total of 113 times, counting postseason appearances.
Fans of either team will soon be able to play out their rivalry on the high seas. Starting next March, Celebrity Cruises is offering themed sailings with past and present members of each team. The trips leave port within two weeks of each other, so choose your affiliation wisely.
On March 15, the Celebrity Silhouette will set sail from Ft. Lauderdale with Celebrity’s First Annual Patriots Fan Cruise to celebrate our official partnership with the New England Patriots. Seven former players—Troy Brown, Kevin Faulk, Scott Zolak, Peter Brock, Joe Andruzzi, Patrick Pass and Steve Nelson—will all be guests on the seven-day eastern Caribbean sailing. A true “fan cruise,” the sailing will offer guests opportunities to sing karaoke with their favorite players as well as get their autographs.
Eleven days later, the Celebrity Constellation will depart from Fort Lauderdale with a treat for Jets fans. The four-day Caribbean Jets Cruise will bring guests up close and personal with over 20 past and present Jets players, including Demario Davis, Nick Folk, Sheldon Richardson and Muhammad Wilkerson. The ship will sail to Nassau, Bahamas and Key West, FL, before returning to Fort Lauderdale on March 30. Activities will include a Jets trivia tournament, draft discussions, autograph sessions, chalk talks, Jets season rewinds, live Q&As and more—especially for those that splurge on VIP passes. For the kids, the Jets Cruise will offer NFL Play 60 activities on the sports deck, interactive Xbox competitions, and more.
Celebrity also regularly shows NFL games on stateroom TVs and in casinos, so even if you can’t join these two special cruises in person, you can always enjoy the best of the NFL while at sea.
