Last week Celebrity Cruises announced that 2014-15 will see the launch of their new initiative: “Celebrity World Tour.”
The company will be sending their ships to each of the seven continents, 245 ports of call and visiting 74 different countries in total. Further details on itineraries are set to be released over the next few weeks.
During the Celebrity World Tour a range of once-in-a-lifetime excursions will be launched too. Guests will be able to partake in a range of fantastic land-based excursions in groups of 1-15 people. The new range of excursions has been dubbed “Celebrity Exclusives.” Highlights include sailing around Mykonos on a private yacht and enjoying a special VIP hospitality package at the 2014 British Open Golf tournament.
All the details…
