Award-winning Celebrity Cruises is offering the ultimate experience for first timers – a luxury weekend at sea aboard the Celebrity Solstice.

The amazing “weekend away” with a difference allows those tempted to try cruising to spend two nights aboard one of the coolest luxury ship in Australia – arriving back in time for work armed with experiences that will turn colleagues green with envy.

The Celebrity Solstice departs Sydney’s Circular Quay on October 20, heading out to international waters. She returns on Sunday 22 October.

“The cruise is ideal for budding cruisers who have a sneaking suspicion cruising might be for them, but don’t want to over-commit while they test the waters,” says Adam Armstrong, managing director Celebrity Cruises Australia and New Zealand.

“This compact round-trip from Sydney gives guests the perfect dose of a luxury weekend away – at sea.”

Celebrity Solstice is renowned for incredible food and wine offerings and modern design. A quick, relaxing, luxury mini-break doesn’t come better, or easier, than this.”

Guests have plenty of options to relax and recharge.

For foodies, Celebrity’s 11 dining experiences are second to none, from the brand new Sushi on Five to Murano, famous for tableside flambes; and Blu, renowned for light, delicious ‘clean cuisine’.

For bar hoppers, there are eight stunning bars and lounges, including one where skilled mixologists create cocktails on an ice-topped counter.

For spa fans, Celebrity Solstice’s Canyon Ranch SpaClub treatments are hugely popular, as are her tranquil adults-only retreats including the Solarium and Persian Garden, with its aromatherapy-infused showers and steam rooms.

Fares for this unique cruise start from just AU$599 per person, twin share for a Balcony, AquaClass or Concierge Stateroom.

But hurry – this cruise will sell out fast!
