Recognizing the growing trend toward extended vacations and answering the demand from guests, Celebrity Cruises announced their “Celebrity Explorations” – unique vacations that pair ocean cruises with deep, immersive destination experiences on land.
Celebrity’s destination experts have identified the most authentic experiences in each destination and cultivated relationships with local experts to deliver one-of-a-kind Celebrity Explorations.
Explorations Packages feature multiple days in diverse and unique cities along with luxurious hotel stays, extensive land tours and excursions – plus an ocean cruise – all in perfectly planned detail.
Guests can 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.
“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.” – Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises

Africa and the Iberian Peninsula – A fully escorted 5 night African Safari, paired with a breathtaking Iberian cruise. Guests can choose from an 11, 13, or 14-night cruise departing from Southampton, England onboard the Celebrity Eclipse.
