Ports

Vancouver

There aren't many cities in the world that offer Vancouver's combination of big-city lifestyle and outdoor fun in such cheek-by-jowl proximity. Ski in the morning, sail in the afternoon and still make it back to town in time for a cocktail or three. Vancouver is also a harbour city, with many major cruise liners using it as a hub to begin its worldwide journeys.

Country - Canada
Distance from port to City - 0kms
Distance from port to Airport - 16kms
Currency - Canadian Dollars (CAD)

Places of Interest
Stanley Park, Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, Granville Island, Whistler

Hilo

Hilo is located on the Big Island of Hawaii, the largest of the Hawaiian Islands, and the most varied in landscape—with striking black sand beaches and green sand beaches, tropical rain forests, ancient Hawaii heiau ruins, alpine terrain, and surreal lava rock landscapes.

Kailua Kona

Lahaina

Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands and it holds a special place in Hawaiian history. The great warrior, King Kamehameha, who united the islands under his rule, chose to make Lahaina his capital. And no wonder, Maui boasts some of the world's most superb beaches and dramatic mountain landscapes. In Maui, you can witness humpback whales navigating the warm blue waters off the coast, go snorkeling alongside green sea turtles and rainbow-colored fish in the bay or shop 'til you drop in Old Lahaina — there's always something to do on Maui.

Honolulu

Home to nearly half a million people, Honolulu is Hawaii's state capital and only major city. The city of Honolulu and the island of Oahu offer a wealth of historic, cultural and scenic attractions. Beyond the city lie tropical rain forests, the lush Pali Lookout and the North Shore known for its excellent surfing beaches.

Papeete

A look beyond its bustling waterfront will reveal the island paradise French artist Paul Gauguin came to explore and embrace. The island’s lush interior is a canvas of deep green valleys, 7,000 feet-high peaks and cascading waterfalls. On the south shore lies the Gauguin Museum at Mataiea while at Tautira on the north coast, other famous names like Captain Cook and Robert Louis Stevenson came to call. Back in Papeete, visit the restored ancient temple of Arahurahu Marae or shop for cultured black pearls.

Point Venus, Gauguin Museum, Tahara Hill and Matavai Bay

Bora Bora

No name captures the imagination of paradise as well as the French Polynesian island nation of Bora Bora. Majestic mountains sculpted by ancient volcanoes, a shimmering lagoon and a barrier reef dotted with tiny motu or islets welcome visitors to perhaps the most stunning island in the South Pacific, and generations of travelers — including novelist James Michener — regarded Bora Bora as an earthly paradise. Approximately, a mere 4,600 people live a seemingly idyllic lifestyle in the main villages of Vaitape, Anau and Faanui.

Auckland

Virtually surrounded by water, Auckland is known as ‘The City of Sails’ with good reason. Opt to see the city from above with a visit to its Sky Tower, complete with a revolving restaurant! Sail on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour for a taste of its yachting culture. Or head for the natural beauty of Rotorua. A different world completely, here you will find boiling mud pools, spouting geysers and hot springs. A highlight of New Zealand not to be missed!

It offers a multitude of sights such as the famous Opera House and distinctive Harbour Bridge of course. You can travel back in time with a visit to Sydney’s oldest centre – The Rocks. Take a city tour to take in Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Bask on Bondi Beach for a dose of sun, sea and sand. Or travel a little further afield for a glimpse of the Aussie wildlife and views of the Blue Mountains.

Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity Cruises

Since its inception in 1989, Celebrity has held true to its original commitment of taking the very best aspects of classic, elegant cruising and updating them to reflect current lifestyles. In 1997, we merged with Royal Caribbean International to form Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

What sets Celebrity apart from other vacation choices today is the cruise line's passionate dedication to providing guests with a cruise experience that exceeds expectations. This extraordinary performance level has become the definition of Celebrity Cruises, and has set the worldwide standard for today's expression of what first made cruising famous -- high quality, superior design, spacious accommodations, grand style, attentive service and exceptional cuisine.

The excellence of Celebrity's existing cruise product continues with the cruise line's Millennium-class ships, which embody even greater technical achievement and meaningful innovation, while retaining the distinctive style, sophistication and service elements that have become the hallmark of a Celebrity cruise.
 
 

Celebrity Cruises has recently announced a new “Extend Your Stay” program. Providing guests with convenience and relaxation, it will appeal to those facing waits at the airport before long flights home. In addition to the benefit of a leisurely last day onboard, the program allows guests to stay in their stateroom for an extra hour on the day the cruise ends. Guests who participate in “Extend Your Stay” also can enjoy some of the ship’s services until as late as 90 minutes before the next cruise sets sail.

The program includes a benefits such as non-alcoholic drinks from Café al Bacio; breakfast and lunch in Bistro on Five; the opportunity to watch a first-run movie in one of the ship’s theaters; and access to the pool, fitness center and locker rooms. The AquaSpa will be available for spa services at an additional charge. Bar purchases can be made on the last day of the cruise using a credit card.

“Extend Your Stay” is available on all European sailings. Extend Your Stay departure times may vary by ship and itinerary based on local immigration regulations. 

 

Now, on up to two nights on every cruise, Evening Chic activities are being introduced, and Evening Chic attire is replacing Formal attire. Evening Chic is an acknowledgment that cruising attire trends have moved towards sophistication and relaxation, rather than stuffiness and structure. While dressier than Smart Casual, Evening Chic is intended to be less dressy than Formal attire.

    Women should feel comfortable wearing:
  • A cocktail dress
  • Skirt, pants or designer jeans with an elegant top
  •  
    Men should feel comfortable wearing:
  • Pants or designer jeans with a dress shirt, button-down shirt or sweater
  • Optional sport coat or blazer
