Christmas With A Twist: Make Festive Season Spectacular With An Asia Cruise

June 8, 2017 Cruise No Comments Email Email

The six month countdown to Christmas is on, and luxury cruise companies Azamara Club Cruises and Celebrity Cruises want Aussies to ditch the chores of the festive season, and dive into a spectacular, stress-free Asia Christmas cruise with the help of two red hot deals.

“A cruise in Asia puts a twist on the traditional Aussie Christmas, making for a totally unforgettable holiday. Imagine a Christmas where not only is everything taken care of onboard – from Christmas dinner and decorations to festive activities – but where you’re also met with spectacular new exotic destinations to explore each day,” said Adam Armstrong, managing director of Azamara Club Cruises and Celebrity Cruises, Australia & NZ.

“Perhaps you’ll taste an Asian-spiced Christmas turkey in Singapore, or buy Frankincense and Myrrh at the spice markets of Abu Dhabi. And because Celebrity and Azamara offer longer stays and overnights in many ports, guests can see cities like Ho Chi Minh and Bangkok lit up with thousands of Christmas lights – an unmissable sight!” said Armstrong.

Embark on your best Christmas ever with a Celebrity Cruises voyage that combines modern luxury with the highlights of Asia and lashings of festive cheer – made even better with Celebrity’s special  “Go Better for Free” offer.

For a limited time only, guests who book an Oceanview stateroom or above on selected Christmas sailings with Celebrity will receive a free Classic beverage package and US$300 onboard credit per stateroom, as well as savings on up to US$150 per person on their cruise fare.

Celebrity Cruises’ mid-sized Celebrity Millennium and newly-revitalised Celebrity Constellation offer modern luxury festive settings, with a range of beautiful features to keep everyone happy. Both ships boast world class dining options, like Tuscan Grille Italian restaurant and Sushi on Five, relaxing spa treatments in the famed Canyon Ranch SpaClub, and a roof top terrace for Celebrity’s “A Taste of Film” experience – where culinary delights are paired with scenes playing on screen – so guests can  celebrate Christmas in sophisticated style.

Spend Christmas at sea during a 14-night Vietnam & Taiwan Celebrity Millennium sailing departing 24 December 2017. The round-trip voyage departs Hong Kong following an overnight, then spends a night in Hanoi before continuing to Hue/Danang and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and Kaohsiung, Hualien and Taipei in Taiwan.  Book a Balcony stateroom for just $3,889 per person twin share, including $100 savings per person and two free perks as part of Celebrity’s “Go Better” Christmas offer.

Explore the Arabian Sea and India on a 14-night Christmas and New Year’s round-trip departing Abu Dhabi on 19 December 2017 onboard Celebrity Constellation. On this incredible sailing, guests will overnight in Abu Dhabi, and call at Muscat, Oman before spending Christmas Day in Cochin, India, and continuing to New Mangalore, Goa, Mumbai and Dubai for an overnight on New Year’s Eve. Fares start from $5,159, per person, twin share for a Balcony stateroom, including savings of $100 per person and two free perks as part of Celebrity’s new offer.

Or choose a boutique hotel at sea with Azamara Club Cruises to delve deeper into Asia. Azamara Journey’s boutique size lets guests sail to places the larger ships can’t reach, like the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, where the ship docks overnight. Plus, more is included in each cruise – such as house alcoholic beverages, gratuities, self-service laundry and shuttle transportation to city centres in ports, where available.

For a pre-Christmas treat, travellers can immerse themselves in the cultures of Vietnam and Thailand with a 14-night sailing from Singapore to Hong Kong on Azamara Journey, departing 9 December 2017. The immersive voyage includes two nights docked in Bangkok, overnights in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, as well as calls to Ko Samui and Hue/Danang. Fares start from just $4,099 per person, twin share.

Or celebrate Christmas & New Year with a 15-night sailing from Hong Kong to Singapore. Departing 23 December 2017, the voyage includes overnights in Hanoi, Hue/Danang and Ho Chi Minh, two nights in Bangkok and a day in Ko Samui. Fares start from just $5,469 per person, twin share.
