Cruise News From Various Sources
22 August 2011
If you are dreaming of going on a cruise, but you are getting tired of the same old ships and the same old itineraries, here is a brief look at what is available from some of the top cruise lines at the moment. From culinary cruises to brand new ships with brand new itineraries – there is a lot of choice in the market right now.
For those who would like to set sail in 2012 or 2013, Celebrity Cruises has a lot of good news. The company will add new routes to Asia and Australia, while maintaining their popular European itineraries covering more than 70 ports of call.
On top of that Celebrity has recently launched their latest Solstice Class ship, the Celebrity Silhouette, offering exciting new itineraries and a range of cruises that celebrate both the art of having a good time at sea and the art of enjoying the delights of good food.
If you prefer smaller, more exclusive vessels, Orion Expedition Cruises might be just what you want. They have recently acquired a second ship, the Orion II. Both are small five-star ships offering passengers the opportunity to enjoy a more intimate ambience and to explore regions where most of today’s mega-liners simply cannot venture.
For those who love an ultra-luxurious experience while sailing the seven seas Seabourn has long been a favourite – since 1987 to be exact. They offer large suites with balconies, world class cuisine and numerous unique onshore excursions.
The company has recently expanded its fleet, allowing more passengers to enjoy the world of Massage Moments on Deck, luxury bath and body amenities, beach parties featuring Caviar in the Surf and menus specially developed by Celebrity Chef Charlie Palmer.
