Celebrity Constellation by Celebrity Cruises will make Abu Dhabi port its home for the winter sailing.
Tourists will discover the beauty of the Arabian Gulf on land and sea with the 14- and 15-night voyages departing from Abu Dhabi and sailing to Dubai, Muscat, Mumbai, Goa, Phuket and Singapore with different cruises, each with its own multiple destination stops, starting in December until the beginning of March 2019.
Before sailing from Abu Dhabi port passengers will discover the breathtaking city’s stunning contrasts. From riding camels in smooth sand under clear starry skies to shopping in luxury boutiques amid palm-lined boulevards. An adrenaline fix is in order at the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi before making a stop at the awe-inspiring Grand Mosque, one of the largest in the world.
Passengers can then marvel at the skyline of the city that is steeped in tradition yet ultra-modern while sailing languidly in the turquoise waters of the calm Arabian Sea.
As the ship stops in Muscat, guests can disembark to marvel at this city’s green lawns, white buildings and soaring minarets. Brimming with traditional architecture of forts, castles, and the Souk Muttrah, a traditional bazaar to shop for mementos.
As the boat ventures out to meet pods of playful dolphins with unique views of the land to stop at magical Goa and its Portuguese rhythm. Its laidback lifestyle is ideal for exploring world-heritage architecture, fragrant spice plantations, and cuisine that blends Portuguese technique with Indian flavours.
The adventure doesn’t stop there, Celebrity Constellation offers many features to keep passengers amused where they can brush up on their basketball, ping-pong and golf putting skills, perhaps join a friendly game of Croquet or Bocce at the Lawn Club or play pool volleyball with ship officers.
Passengers can wind down during the “at sea” days learning new skills like working with molten glass to create their own brilliant artwork and functional tableware. The ships are complete with an exciting art programme where passengers can attend live art auctions, educational seminars, and fantastic art exhibitions.
Following a day of exploring the Arabian Sea and India, their exotic cuisines and interesting cultures, there is nothing better than returning to the comfort of your luxurious stateroom. Celebrity Constellation boasts 1,092 beautifully appointed staterooms that offer luxurious and comfortable accommodation, many with spectacular sea views, in three main categories that suit every taste.
