So now the festive period is over, it’s time to plan something else to look forward to. Get the calendar out, check the school holidays and book time off work before anyone else can do it – because here we present Cruist1st’s picks for 2015. Let us guide you through the hundreds of holidays available, and explain why we reckon these five should not be missed.
Luxury New York & Bermuda
With a four night stay in Orlando thrown in for good measure, the Luxury New York & Bermuda cruise has something to keep the whole family happy and entertained. From the exciting hustle and bustle of New York City to the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful beaches of Bermuda to the theme park capital of the world; there’s a little something for everybody on this cruise. The cruise departs from Southampton and sets sail for the East Coast of the US, stopping off in Boston before arriving in the Big Apple.
Cruising aboard the Celebrity Eclipse, guests will enjoy a wide range of activities and amenities including the stunning Lawn Club – a top deck grassy expanse.
Dubai to Singapore
Enjoy some of the most stunning and diverse destinations in Asia aboard the Dubai to Singapore cruise which also visits Mumbai and the luxurious Indian island of Goa as well as beautiful Sri Lanka. With two days in Dubai and two days in Singapore, you’ll have time to explore two of the most unique and unforgettable cities in the world.
The Celebrity Century retains an air of relaxed sophistication on board with a strong country club casual presence. However, there are many opportunities to don the cocktail dress or tuxedo during one of the ship’s plentiful formal evenings.
Florida to Spain
Kicking off with four days in Florida before setting sail for Europe, guests have a great chance to visit Disney World, Universal Studios or any of the plethora of theme parks in Orlando. Setting sail from Fort Lauderdale, passengers get to enjoy a stunning Atlantic crossing aboard the largest ship in the world – Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas – before arriving in sunny Malaga and then onto the beautiful, cultural city of Barcelona.
The Allure of the Seas is one of the most comprehensively served cruise ships on the seas, packed with exciting things to see and do. The family friendly cruise ship retains a relaxed atmosphere as guests of all ages can enjoy the peaceful ambience.
Anthem of the Seas’ Maiden Voyage
Arguably the most hotly anticipated new cruise ship of 2015, Anthem of the Seas launches on her maiden voyage on 22 April, visiting France and Spain. Be amongst the first to enjoy the unique features and technological breakthroughs of Royal Caribbean’s Quantum class of ships as the liner visits a selection of Spanish cities before arriving in the city of love, Paris. The round trip from Southampton is the first of many for the Anthem of the Seas who will spend her first season cruising throughout Europe.
The Anthem of the Seas is set to feature some world-first features including skydiving at sea, the fastest internet at sea and the NorthStar – an observation pod which lifts guests 300ft into the air, offering incredible seascapes.
Luxury Greek Isles
Explore the very best of the Greek islands as well as the mainland and Turkish and Croatian destinations aboard the Celebrity Constellation in this excursion-packed two week cruise. The highlight of the cruise is undoubtedly a visit to the stunning island of Santorini – instantly recognisable from holiday brochures and travel programmes for its unspoiled cliff-side architecture and beautiful vistas.
Affectionately known as ‘Connie’, the Celebrity Constellation has built up a dedicated following of experienced cruise passengers from throughout Europe.
