Visiting every continent of the world is something many people dream about. It may seem like an improbable dream, or one that will take a lifetime to achieve, but it’s actually easier than you might think. Celebrity Cruises sails to every continent and will get you there in style and comfort while offering you 5-star service and fun, exciting ways to explore each port you visit. Here’s how you can easily visit all seven continents in just seven years with Celebrity Cruises – read on to the end for some tips on how to hit each continent even faster!
If you live on the west coast of the United States, you’ve obviously already visited the continent of North America – you live on it! But there is likely much more you can explore, especially if you haven’t left the continental U.S. recently, which a cruise makes it easy to do. One epic place to head? The Last Frontier of America: Alaska.
Celebrity Cruises offers convenient Alaska sailings that depart from Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia. Choose from a cruise that focuses on Hubbard Glacier or Tracy Arm Fjord along with visiting ports of call like Juneau, Ketchikan, and Anchorage. Not sure which epic glacier route is best for you? Read our blog post all about Hubbard Glacier and Tracy Arm Fjord.
If you want somewhere more exotic and that will check a different country (or two or three…) off your bucket list, jet off to the Caribbean for a cruise that stops in multiple islands. Visit the lively islands of the Western Caribbean, like the Bahamas and Jamaica; the exotic locales of the Southern Caribbean including the islands of Aruba and Turks and Caicos; or the famous sites on the islands of the Eastern Caribbean like the pitons of St. Lucia and Magens Bay in St. Thomas.
South America cruises are a great way to explore this southern hemisphere continent. You can cruise right through the wonder of the Panama Canal and experience it firsthand from a prime vantage point on the ship’s deck. Or you can head farther south and do a cruise that sails the eastern coast of South America, to ports in Brazil and Argentina.
One of our top picks for a memorable South America vacation is a Galapagos cruise. The Galapagos Islands are full of wildlife and sea views accented by an array of flora and fauna. With Celebrity Cruises, you will sail around the islands with a naturist on board who will teach you about everything you’ll be seeing in port, which may include sea lions, giant tortoises, marine lizards, and a variety of interesting birds.
Celebrity Cruises has a strong presence in Europe meaning plenty of cruise itinerary options for you. Cross the continent of Europe off your list with a Mediterranean cruise that stops in beloved countries like Italy, Spain, and Greece. Or stick farther to the north and cruise the Baltic sea to the countries of Scandinavia and the northern shores of Germany, Belgium, and Russia. You can also cruise to Ireland and the United Kingdom, and down to Lisbon, Portugal.
With so many choices you may find yourself wanting to squeeze in an extra cruise or two to Europe within these seven years!
Whether you’ve always dreamed of going to Asia so you can walk along the Great Wall of China, or to explore the islands of Southeast Asia, or to see the wonders of India, Celebrity Cruises has you covered. Sail to Asia and experience the ease of visiting multiple cities and countries in one vacation with the comfort of going back to the same stateroom each night and the ease of exploring ports thanks to guided shore excursions.
Visit the gorgeous South Pacific region of the world with a trip to Australia, a country so diverse it makes up practically an entire continent. New Zealand and few of the smaller island nations around Australia are also considered part of the Australian continent.
Celebrity Cruises sails a number of itineraries to Australia and New Zealand and you can choose from vacations that visit both, or that focus on a particular region, such as the North Island of New Zealand or Australia’s rugged west coast.
Celebrity Cruises makes it possible to visit Africa as part of a Africa and Europe Explorations vacation package. You’ll get the opportunity to embark on a safari through Africa before boarding a plane to take you to the embarkation port of your European cruise. All this with the impeccable service and planning Celebrity Cruises is known for.
Did you know Celebrity Cruises sails to Antarctica? That’s right, you can visit the southern most continent from the comfort of a Celebrity Cruises ship. Antarctica itineraries with Celebrity Cruises depart from Argentina and sail to Antarctica. Once you’ve arrived in the frozen south, you’ll visit Elephant Island and Paradise Bay, seeing incredible ice formations and possibly even humpback whales along the way.
And…you probably noticed that the Antarctica sailing also goes to South America, meaning you can visit every continent in just six years if you want. Here are some other tricks for visiting seven continents even faster than in seven years.
A transcontinental cruise sails between two continents, usually because the ship is repositioning to start sailing new itineraries in a different region of the world than it had previously been based, Not only are transcontinental cruises an excellent way to see the world, they are also usually a great vacation value and provide you with multiple days at sea to relax and enjoy time on board the ship. There are two options for this type of cruise with Celebrity Cruises – a transatlantic sailing from Europe to North America or South America (or vice versa) and a Transpacific sailing from the South Pacific or Asia to North America (or vice versa).
And, if you also choose a Europe itinerary that visits Africa for your first European cruise trip, you’ll be crossing off another two continents on one sailing. So, if you choose a TransPacific Sailing from Australia to North America, a Europe sailing with Africa ports of call, and an Antarctica cruise sailing from South America, plus an Asia cruise, you can visit all seven continents in just four years!
Along with crossing every continent off your bucket list you’ll be crossing a number of countries off your list as well in these seven years. To start planning your epic travels to every continent, visit www.CelebrityCruises.com or speak with your travel agent.
