An industry first, these one-of-a-kind vacations combine an immersive Amras Cruise river journey with a Celebrity luxury ocean sailing. The 11 new river-and-ocean cruise packages offer guests the opportunity to explore Europe inside and out by way of four well-known rivers – the Danube, Rhine, Rhône and Seine, and then continue on by sea around the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, Russia, Turkey and other destinations.
Lets take a closer look at one such voyage, the 16 Night Seine Symphony, & the Med.
Guests will fly into Paris, one of the most romantic cities in the world, to board the Amadeus Diamond. Following the Seine north from Paris, the ship will stop at the fairytale towns and landscapes that inspired many a great artist; van Gogh, Cézanne, Pissarro, and Monet! Every bend is a feast for the eyes: cathedrals, chateaux, fishing villages, gardens and Gothic masterpieces. Venture to the beaches of Normandy, where Western Allies landed not so long ago. Returning south, guests will spend a day and night docked in the City of Lights.
Then fly from Paris to Barcelona, where guests will spend 2 days exploring this exciting city before embarking on a 7-night Celebrity Equinox cruise. Luxurious accommodations, award-winning cuisine, impeccable service and amazing entertainment await. Ports of call include Cannes, France; Genoa, Italy; Rome, Italy; the Amalfi Coast and Crete, Greece before disembarking in Athens!
