Travel-starved Aussies want to discover more about food, wine, culture and ease in organising their overseas break. They also want to relax in the European sun.  As sun seekers they are always on the look out for a beach escape. Having missed out on two European summers, intrepid Aussies are determined to travel far and wide again across the globe again in search of new experiences. And Europe is their all time favourite destination.

This is what Celebrity Cruises found out when it recently conducted a national travel pulse survey  to find out exactly what Australian travellers wanted from their first big holiday abroad.

So on your next European sojourn, make sure you choose a holiday that paves the way for you to rediscover all the joys of travelling again and be rewarded with new discoveries that you desperately missed. Whether you’re a culture vulture, natural beauty enthusiast, culinary connoisseur, or history buff, a Celebrity cruise ultimately ticks all the boxes for the next ideal trip abroad, delivered in a way that only Celebrity knows how – in unparalleled new luxury.
