Last month, Celebrity Cruises set the precedent for a growing trend in extended holidays by unveiling their new ‘Celebrity Explorations’ packages. Renowned for their bountiful modern luxuries and on-board pampering, the company is now offering unique on-land experiences to accompany their majestic cruises.
Selected by Celebrity’s very own panel of destination experts, there are over 20 one-of-a-kind Celebrity Explorations to choose from, each offering travellers the most authentic, immersive experiences in new cultures before boarding a spectacular cruise.
Ranging from 11 to 22 nights, Celebrity Explorations include inspiring guided tours, exciting excursions and the opportunity to stay in exotic five-star hotels – all without the stress of making the arrangements.
Celebrity Exploration highlights
Offering a perfect balance of adventure and luxury, Celebrity Explorations are an ideal way to travel, with many highlights.
Celebrity’s African Adventure takes guests on an unforgettable journey through Kenya. Here they will have the opportunity explore the wonders of Nairobi, safari through Lake Nakuru National Park, camp beneath the stars at a five-star tented camp, and view one of Africa’s largest wildlife reserves from a hot air balloon, before joining one of three cruises in the Mediterranean.
Another Celebrity Explorations highlight whisks guests away down the Amazon river on what promises to be a unique pre-cruise adventure through South America. Starting with a stay at a lavish country club in Peru, guests will be escorted through the countryside to an exclusive river boat which will gently carry them down the Amazon on a four day excursion, followed by two nights in the lively city of Buenos Aires. Jungle walks, village visits, wildlife spotting, and a taste of South American cuisine are all part of the package, ending with Celebrity’s Antarctic cruise.
From making furry friends at a premier wildlife park to a magical dinner cruise in Sydney harbour, Celebrity’s 4-day Sydney package is ideal for those seeking a more relaxing holiday. As well as touring the highlights, guests can discover Sydney’s wonderful nightlife and indulge in some retail therapy before boarding a South Pacific cruise.
