Celebrity Cruises Reveals A Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience With New African Safari Adventure

An exotic “Journey to Three Continents – African Safari, Turkey and the Black Sea”

MIAMI, FL – March 13, 2014 – Celebrity Cruises today unveiled a new vacation experience for guests, which combines the exhilaration of an African safari with the relaxation of a modern luxury cruise. Vacationers can indulge in the wonders of a wildlife safari and then set sail onboard Celebrity Constellation to discover the beauty, history and culture of the Black Sea and Turkey.
Beginning in the Republic of Kenya, Celebrity’s new 2014 escorted journey visits the three continents of Africa, Europe and Asia. Guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of Nairobi, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara, observe the breathtaking wildlife of two game reserves by day, and indulge in luxurious hotels and game lodges by night. Following the Kenyan adventure, vacationers will continue onto Istanbul, Turkey for an exciting and awe-inspiring cruise. While at sea, guests can indulge in the luxuries that one can expect from Celebrity - fine dining, top-tier service and culture-rich destinations.
The vacation package includes:

  • Air travel to and from JFK: Upon arrival in Nairobi, Kenya, guests will be greeted by Celebrity’s Destination Concierge, who will escort guests throughout their trip
  • Five nights in Africa at four- and five-star hotels and game reserve lodges
  • Three African safari expeditions
