Celebrity Cruises to sail from Abu Dhabi to Southeast Asia

DUBAI, July 2, 2018

Celebrity Constellation, one of Celebrity Cruises fleet, will return to UAE in December to kick off a new season of exciting cruises exploring the Arabian Gulf and beyond.

Departing from Abu Dhabi, the luxury cruise liner will offer several comprehensive cruise itineraries, sailing as far as the Andaman Sea in South East Asia.

From the beginning of December until the end of March 2019, the ship will embark on continuous sea voyages ranging between 14 to 15 nights, and visit several cities in India and Sri Lanka to Phuket in Thailand and Singapore.

The ship takes in two itineraries; Arabian Sea & India - from Abu Dhabi, to India or the Best of India & Sri Lanka, with onward sailing to Phuket in Thailand before terminating in Singapore.

The Arabian Sea & India cruise gives passengers a real experience of cruising with several days at sea, meaning those afloat can enjoy all that the Celebrity Constellation offers.
The cruise calls into Goa and Mumbai, before returning to the Arabian Gulf to enjoy ports of call in Dubai and finally back to Abu Dhabi.

The Best of India & Sri Lanka passes through Muscat, one of the Middle East's oldest cities, with its beautiful parks, and ancient stone moat that surrounds the area. India’s key cities of Mumbai, Goa, New Mangalore, and then Cochin also form part of the experience before sailing on for Colombo, Sri Lanka, to enjoy many museums, art galleries, festivals, historic buildings and warm culture.

Rather than returning to the UAE, the cruise then turns to the crystal water of the Andaman Sea in Phuket, Thailand, surrounded with colourful reefs filled with tropical fish.

Discovering the culture of Phuket, filled with elaborate Chinese and Thai temples, passengers can take to a trail along the old rubber plantations or lie back on Patong beach and let the sand sift through their fingers.

The cruise ends in the port of Singapore located off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, just north of the equator, offering a wonderful tropical rainforest climate year-round. Eastern and Western cultural influences blend seamlessly in Singapore through culture, religions and ancient treasures. Filled with incredible high-end fashion shopping on Orchard Road, wonderful antique shops in Chinatown, dozens of peaceful city parks and the cuisine is a national obsession.

Celebrity Constellation offers a journey that takes in many destinations, with just one suitcase, for an experience filled with new cultures, delicious food and adventure, all aboard an upscale sailing experience where comfort is a priority.
