Celebrity Steps Up European Romance ...

"X" Logo Marks The Spot: From Casablanca to Cornwall, from the Bosporus Strait to the best of ancient Greece, Celebrity Cruises’ European itineraries in 2007 and 2008 provide the broadest array of romantic, historic and exotic ports since the line began sailing there in 1999. Bookings are open for Celebrity’s new, expanded European season on Century, Constellation, Galaxy and Millennium, and for Cruisetours in the region. A sampler? On April 23, 2007, Constellation will cross from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on a 12-night transatlantic featuring the line’s first call on Cornwall, England, ending in Dover, the major channel port famed for its coastal white cliffs. The ship then sails 14-night Scandinavia and Russia cruises roundtrip from Dover, England, featuring Celebrity’s first visits to Visby, Sweden, a walled town with ancient ruins, cobblestone streets, and quaint pubs and restaurants. Constellation wraps up its Northern Europe season on Sept. 20, 2007, with a seven-nighter from Southampton to Cape Liberty, N.J., returning to Europe on April 11, 2008, on a 13-night transatlantic from Fort Lauderdale, featuring Celebrity’s first calls on Brest, in the Bretagne region of France, and Cherbourg, the gateway to Normandy.
