When booking a holiday, the focus is on the destination and the incredible experiences you will have on arrival. The journey to reach there is just an essential part of travel to make your trip possible. What if you could avoid standing at the gate in the airport waiting to depart, or walking miles to locate the car you have hired? What if your holiday began from the minute you handed over your suitcase? With a cruise this is the norm, the journey is as much of an experience as the destinations themselves.
As well as having a whole host of activities to enjoy on-board, a cruise will visit several ports of call. No more having to pick a single destination from your bucket list! A cruise can cover whole regions of the Caribbean, all the Canary Islands and even those harder to reach places such as the Antarctic or the Galapagos Islands. When combining the price of several separate holidays to different countries, a cruise can work out as a very cost-effective way of being able to see more of the world. With most cruises, also being on either a full-board or all-inclusive basis, you can indulge yourself both on-board and in the ports you visit.
Cruise ships are constantly undergoing renovations and cruise lines are always building new ships with extra wow factors. Celebrity Cruises has just launched its new ship Celebrity EdgeSM, designed to leave the future behind! Celebrity EdgeSM changes everything. The way you experience the world; the way you connect with the ocean; the way you play, dine and unwind at sea. Revolutionary on every level, she’s the ship that’s setting a new standard of innovation at sea. Some of the Celebrity Edge Staterooms feature an Infinite Balcony – touch a button and your entire living space becomes the balcony, letting you walk right out to the water’s edge.
When it comes to extraordinary venues, Celebrity has the edge. One highlight, is the Magic Carpet. It is the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform. Majestically situated on the starboard side, it is designed with comfortable seating, a full bar, and space for live music performances. This spectacular space opens to several decks and transforms into a new and exciting venue depending on where it’s positioned. Celebrity Cruises invites you to soar over the open ocean while you dine, drink, or simply relax with our great Eastern Caribbean cruise offer on-board this magical ship!
For those looking to stay closer to home there is also an abundance of ships that depart from Southampton. These cruises take you to destinations across the world including Celebrity Cruises’ great offer to Spain and the Canary Islands on-board Celebrity Eclipse®. Here your holiday really begins from the minute you arrive in Southampton, the only problem you may have, is being able to tear yourself away from the on-board experiences long enough to visit the destinations on the itinerary!
Whether you choose to treat yourself to an indulgent treatment at the world-renowned Canyon Ranch SpaClub, or get competitive with some games at the Lawn Club (a half acre of real grass), there’s luxury on every level. As night falls, head to the Martini Bar where you can enjoy a cocktail; the talented bartenders transform mixing your evening drink into jaw-dropping entertainment. Or, simply sit back and admire the night sky from the Sunset Bar on the top deck.
The whole world awaits, and with a cruise you can visit so many more places. Step on-board, enjoy all the cruise has to offer and then lie back on your balcony, wave goodbye to the glistening beaches and head to bed ready to wake up in a bustling city to set off on a new adventure in another corner of the globe.
