Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 3 March 2011

Celebrity Cruises has confirmed it will send the Celebrity Solstice to Australia and New Zealand for the 2012-13 winter season.

Celebrity Solstice has satisfied guests around the world since we introduced her in 2008, and the obvious next step is to send her to Australia, said Dan Hanrahan, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. With this move, we are delivering another way for people to have the best vacation experience possible, in one of the most stunning geographic regions of the world.

Celebrity Solstice will transition from a 2012 summer in the Mediterranean to Australia / New Zealand via the Suez Canal and through Southeast Asia before arriving in Sydney, Australia in early December. The repositioning sailings will include multiple overnights in ports including Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Cochin, India.

Upon arriving in Australia, Celebrity Solstice will present a series of 12 and 13-night open-jaw sailings between Sydney and Auckland, New Zealand. The season also will include a circumnavigation of Australia, consisting of two open-jaw sailings between Sydney and Perth (Fremantle). Many of the itineraries include overnight stays in Sydney.

Celebrity Solstice will continue a series of destination-immersive onboard activities that will debut during Celebrity Centurys upcoming Australia / New Zealand season; activities include local vineyard and wine shore excursions, onboard talks by local cultural entertainers and speakers, and destination-focused food and drink menus. Some activities will be complimentary.

Full details of the cruisetour program will be available on 23 March 2011, when bookings for Celebritys new 2012-13 Australia/New Zealand itineraries will open for sale. Bookings for the 1,814-guest Celebrity Centurys 2011-12 Australia/New Zealand cruises are already open.
