Celebrity Cruises is offering sailings out of Abu Dhabi for the first time ever this year, giving travellers the chance to blend modern luxury with timeless tradition on a range of cruises on board Celebrity Constellation.
The premium cruise ship will make the Emirate’s newest cruise terminal her home from November 2016 to January 2017, the ideal season to visit this part of the world, offering cruises that range from 9 to 14 nights and calling at the exotic ports of the UAE and India, around the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea.
The opulence of the modern cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai are contrasted with the ancient traditions of Muscat, Mumbai, Goa, Cochin and New Mangalore, cities that pulse with age-old culture and fascinating history.
The cruises feature a range of incredible shore excursions, like camel-riding in Abu Dhabi’s sprawling desert sands, a visit to Dubai’s spice and gold souks and a day of indulgence on one of Goa’s golden-sand beaches.
A 12-night Arabian Sea and India cruise starts at AU$2319/NZ$2509 for an Oceanview stateroom. This comes with one perk included in the price, which could include a free classic beverage package, pre-paid gratuities, an unlimited internet package or US$300 onboard credit. The sailing departs Abu Dhabi on 28 November 2016 and will take guests to Dubai for an overnight call, as well as New Mangalore, Mormugao, Mumbai and Khasab in India. As well, the cruise includes five days at sea, where guests have plenty of opportunity to try out the Canyon Ranch Spa Club, eat at specialty restaurants like Tuscan Grille, and keep in touch with family and friends with high speed internet, “Xcelerate”, onboard one of the cruise line’s best-loved ships, Celebrity Constellation.
Fares start at AU$1559/NZ$1689 for an Oceanview stateroom on the nine-night, Arabian Coast Immersion cruise, a round-trip which begins in Abu Dhabi on 10 December 2016 and includes calls to the enthralling ports of Dubai where the ship spends two nights in a row, Muscat for a night, as well as a call to Khasab, before returning to Abu Dhabi for an additional overnight stay. This price includes the guest’s choice of one free perk as part of Celebrity Cruises’ Go Big, Go Better, Go Best evergreen offer.
