Travel is on everybody’s mind this year, and Europe is one of the top destinations for budding Australian travellers ready to explore the world again. And the perfect way to explore the Mediterranean is a luxury cruise onboard Celebrity Cruises’ ground-breaking new ship, Celebrity Beyond.
Like her industry-changing sister ships, Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Beyond will connect guests to the breathtaking world around them like never before.
Here are 5 reasons to explore the Mediterranean onboard Celebrity Beyond –
1. Unmatched Architectural Wonders
On a cruise from Rome, stand in the ruins of the ancient Colosseum, the world’s largest and most famous amphitheater. Be captivated by the place where Romans of the time came to watch gladiators.
Onboard, explore the architectural masterpiece Eden, a multi-level experiential space. By day, its three-story view of sparkling blue sea and sky, promenade space, and Library of Plants will enthrall you. At night, you’ll find immersive cooking classes, a restaurant experience, and interactive entertainment.
2. A Culinary Adventure
Tour Etruscan ruins, then dine al fresco in the Tuscan countryside. Back onboard Beyond, savour world-class cuisine at one of Beyond’s 32 food and beverage venues, including signature restaurant Le Voyage by world-renowned chef, Daniel Boulud. Or enjoy the magic and whimsy of a 3D dining experience at Le Petit Chef and Friends, where tiny animated chefs construct a virtual meal on your plate.
Along with the top culinary talent on board who prepare fresh dishes daily using locally sourced ingredients, you’ll enjoy the best dining experience at sea.
3. Captivating Culture
Land adventures bring home the rich cultural experiences of the Mediterranean, like La Sagrada, the unfinished Antonio Gaudi-designed basilica in Barcelona, or the glories of the Renaissance at every turn in Florence.
On your return to the ship, capture the spirit of an Italian piazza experience, enjoying an espresso from the Grand Plaza Cafe or sipping a specialty martini from the lively Martini Bar that anchors the soaring three-story space.
4. Views That Take Your Breath Away
Whether a view from the iconic Ponte Vecchio in Florence or the romantic Eiffel Tower overlooking the lights of Paris, a cruise to the Mediterranean is filled with moments of memory-making views guaranteed to take your breath away.
Beyond’s Magic Carpet, the most unique viewing platform at sea, offers the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sun setting into the sea. Or enjoy unmatched views from the comfort of your room thanks to Celebrity Cruises’ innovative Infinite Veranda.
5. Chase The Sun
Winter is fast approaching and Australians ready to escape the cold can embrace European summer in the Mediterranean. Whether the port of call is sun-drenched Santorini or the Isle of Capri, there are no shortage of beaches to explore.
On days at sea, unwind in luxury on Beyond’s Resort Deck, complete with a pool, two-level hot tubs, plush loungers, and roomy cabanas.
Celebrity Beyond is currently sailing on her debut season, offering a variety of Mediterranean journeys including nine-night Italian Riviera and France itineraries and 10-night Greek Isles itineraries through early October, when she then heads to the Caribbean, before returning to Europe in 2023.
