Red Sox and Celebrity Celebrating

You could say Celebrity Cruises knew something last spring when it became the "official cruise line" of the Boston Red Sox or, if you are cynical, you could say Celebrity was playing the sympathy card by attaching itself to a city in mourning from the murders at the Marathon…unlikely because such co-promotions don't usually happen within two weeks, the span between the Marathon and the announcement.

Whether Celebrity was clairvoyant or not, the arrangement could not have worked Celebrity Solsticeout better. In case you haven't heard, the Red Sox are the champions of baseball. They did have the best record in the game when the announcement was made but nobody anticipated they would go from the worst team of 2012 to the best of 2013.

But they did.

En route to their third championship season in a decade, the Red Sox (and Celebrity) made winners of fans. Four times every month, they entered a draw to win a trip for two on the Red Sox Fan Cruise. Every Fenway Park double play gave a fan $200 off a Celebrity cruise. And while the January 12th cruise — Big Papi won't be on the Silhouette but former Red Sox players are supposed to be — still has space available, if it's not sold out it will be a small miracle.

Kind of like the one that took place on the field this season.
