Celebrity Cruises’ 2014-15 Australasian programme is now on sale. With two ships based in Australia for the first time in 2014, it features more stylish and modern cruising choices than ever before.

If you are tempted to take a cruise on two of the region’s highest-rated* cruise liners, don’t wait as Celebrity Cruises is also rewarding those who book early with earlybird deals. Cruisers can save up to $1,000 per person off the brochure fare for bookings made before 31 December 2013.

“As the recently released Australian cruising figures highlight, the cruising market has evolved and Australians are getting more discerning about the style that suits them best. There will be two Australian-based Celebrity ships, with different sizes and programmes to appeal to different cruisers, so local guests have a larger menu of cruises to choose from,” said Adam Armstrong, commercial director, Celebrity Cruises Australia.

Australia’s youngest and most stylish ship, Celebrity Solstice, will return in 2014-15 for her third consecutive Australian season and she will be joined by her sister, Celebrity Century.
