CELEBRITY VROOM-VROOM: Hairpin turns and 100 mph straight-a-ways are standard with Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Xpeditions newest lure: The Celebrity Racing Academy, paired with lodging along the Palm Beaches at the PGA Resort and Spa. Developed with racing champ Justin Bell, Celebrity Xpeditions Racing Academy includes a stretch at Moroso Motorsports Park, with two hours at the wheel of a Formula One Dodge capable of doing "0 to 60 mph" in 4.5 seconds. Guests also get a "hot lap" with champions Justin Bell or Derek Bell in a Dodge Viper. Justin was 2001 TransAm Rookie of the Year and winner of the LeMans 24-hour race and World GT2 Championship. Derek, a Fox Sports and ESPN commentator, is a five-time Le Mans winner. The post-cruise experience follows select Caribbean sailings on Celebrity's Millennium, Century and Summit. Racing packages start at $1,000 per couple.
