If you’ve never heard of a Celebrity Signature Cruise you may be missing out on something truly special. These are select Celebrity cruises that offer unique shore excursions and onboard activities that highlight a person, place or world event. For example, the April 23, 2016 Celebrity Silhouette is a Scandinavia Signature Sailing highlighting Shakespeare.
Known throughout the world, the works of William Shakespeare have been performed in countless hamlets, villages and cities for more than 400 years. On this cruise guests will visit Kronborg Castle in Denmark…the actual castle that Shakespeare set Hamlet in!There are many mysteries surrounding Shakespeare and whether or not he ever visited
Kronborg Castle is one of them! In Hamlet, Shakespeare called Kronborg Castle Elsinore. Exploring the creepy crypts and catacombs of Kronborg Castle is a great experience. Walk in the footsteps of Danish soldiers as you explore the underground casemates, dark, damp rooms built to accommodate up to 1,000 men and enough provisions to withstand a six-week siege. Imagine enjoying a magnificent banquet lunch, accompanied by "Hamlet" or another Shakespearean characters.
Onboard Signature Sailings guests will be entertained, educated, and engaged with unique shows, speakers, and activities inspired by the itinerary's event. This particular cruise will host a Shakespeare enrichment speaker, a Shakespeare production as well as other themed events. And this is all in addition to the fine dining, entertainment and service that you will always get on a Celebrity cruise! Now this is just one example of the many Celebrity Signature Cruises that are offered in 2016. A travel consultant at Direct Line Cruises will be more than happy to discuss other options with you!
