Celebrity Cruises to Compete with the City Break Market

January 20, 2015

Have you ever boarded a cruise and wished you could have a bit more time to explore the city you’re departing from? Well thanks to Celebrity Cruises‘ latest initiative you can do just that because the line has recently announced its Celebrity City Stay holiday package.

The pre-cruise experiences will be available in sixteen of the most exciting and intriguing destinations, fully immersing Celebrity passengers in some of the world’s must-see cities.

Guests can choose to visit Barcelona, Hong Kong, London, Singapore, Sydney, Athens and Abu Dhabi – to name a few.

The unique packages are available in almost all port cities that Celebrity’s fleet sails from.

Each City Stay holiday package includes: a three-night stay in a luxury hotel, with complementary breakfast; a full day of an in-depth guided tour, with lunch; a return airport and hotel transfer and the booked Celebrity Cruise; and a half-day guided tour and a farewell dinner.

Not only this, but once onboard, passengers will also be treated to a Classic Beverage Package for two, including wines, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks – and 40 minutes of free internet in the cabin.

Bernardo Carrillo, managing director of Celebrity Cruises, said: “Our destination experts have specially curated each Celebrity City Stay so that vacationers can get even more up close and personal with the destination before departing on their cruise.

“Our guests can enjoy upscale and immersive three-night experiences in some of the world’s most beautiful and captivating cities.”

The Celebrity City Stay packages are already available for booking on cruises departing from February 2015.
