New Delhi, September 5, 2014: In keeping with the growing trend toward extended vacations and catering to the demand from guests, Celebrity Cruises has introduced "Celebrity Explorations" - an immersive destination experience on land that is paired with ocean cruises.
It is Celebrity's endeavor to give as authentic an experience in each destination to their guests and so with local experts they deliver more than 20 different one-of-a-kind Celebrity Explorations, with more to be revealed this year. Now vacationers can combine an ocean cruise with several days of extensive and fully-guided tours, exhilarating excursions and indulgent hotels - minus the stress of planning.
For instance, guests can now pair an exciting safari in Africa's greatest wildlife reserves with a cruise to the Iberian Peninsula or journey down the Amazon River on a luxury custom-built riverboat with floor-to-ceiling picture windows before setting sail on a modern, luxurious Celebrity ship for a thrilling Antarctic cruise. Additional Celebrity Explorations that offer memorable insight into the sights, flavors, culture and history of destinations include vacations that combine the vibrancy of Sydney, Australia with unforgettable cruises in the South Pacific. "As a modern luxury vacation company, we are in the business of providing outstanding vacation experiences and have been doing so for nearly 25 years," said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. "With the introduction of Celebrity Explorations, we are giving our guests more of what they value and expect from Celebrity - authentic, immersive and upscale vacation experiences that combine luxury hotels, guided tours by our destination concierges and the best in local dining with a unique selection of ocean cruises and more. Our new style of travel pairs two exceptional vacations in one - and both have been perfectly planned down to the very last detail to create one exhilarating vacation."
