It’s hard to believe, but the six-month countdown to Christmas is almost on. This year, why not leave behind the cleaning, chores and complicated logistics of the festive season, and do Christmas a little differently with a stress-free cruise through Asia with Celebrity Cruises.
Tour Asia on a Luxury Cruise
For travellers who like a combination of cosmopolitan cities, exotic landscapes and colonial history, Asia makes a compelling alternative to the more laid-back sun and sea cruise destinations. From the neon-lit towers of Tokyo to the local delicacies and vibrant culture of Shanghai, Celebrity Cruises offer a range of luxury cruise itineraries during the holiday season, that uncover the best Asia has to offer.
This is both the ideal way, and ideal time of year to travel to this corner of the world.
Celebrate Christmas on a Celebrity Cruise Ship
Spending Christmas on a cruise ship doesn’t mean you have to leave the festive cheer at home. The cruise staff and crew embrace the holiday with vigour far beyond the symbolic Christmas tree and occasional Santa appearance. Festive carolling, live entertainment and Christmas lunch and dinner with all the trimmings, will help get you into the spirit of the season – and most importantly, no washing up! You’ll be able to enjoy all the familiar parts of Christmas that you love with the added benefits of a brand-new Asia adventure.
And the celebrations on board are only the beginning. Taste an Asian-spiced Christmas turkey in Singapore, or buy Frankincense and Myrrh at the spice markets of Abu Dhabi. With the option for longer stays and overnights in many ports, you can spend more time getting a glimpse of the festivities in Ho Chi Minh and the thousands of Christmas lights that light up Bangkok – an unmissable sight!
For a more relaxed pace, enjoy a cruise through Vietnam, Asia’s tropical paradise. Relish the stunning scenery and sand-white beaches away from crowds. Sip on your favourite drink, while the sun dips into the ocean as you soak in a quiet, but equally magical Christmas moment.
Christmas on the Celebrity Millennium
Celebrity Cruises’ mid-sized ships Celebrity Millennium and recently-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.
