Celebrity Cruises’ luxury cruise liner the Celebrity Constellation recently made its inaugural visit to Dubai as part of the ship’s maiden voyage to the Arabian Gulf.

A number of dignitaries were on hand to celebrate the arrival of the iconic cruise ship including Director of Dubai Cruise Tourism Jamal Humaid Al Falasi and representatives from Dubai Immigration, Dubai Customs and Dubai Police. Those in attendance were treated to a tour of the 13 deck luxury ship inclusive of entertainment and a sample of the mouth watering dishes from the Tuscan Grill and Bistro on Five, attendees also had the opportunity to experience some of the relaxing treatments from the onboard Canyon Ranch Spa.

Undoubtedly, the Celebrity Constellation will prove to be a hit with families looking for a unique way to experience the Arabian Gulf, the luxury cruise liner prides itself on proving fun and entertaining activities for every member of the family. Included in the Celebrity Constellation cruise experience is the Celebrity iLounge- an internet lounge that provides travellers with a number of classes to boost their photography, video and audio skills. Teenagers can try their hand at the latest gaming consoles on the cruise ship’s X-Club, while the aptly named Fun Factory caters to the needs of the younger passengers with a host of games and activities planned to ensure that the little ones are never bored.

Speaking at the event, Al Faisal noted his hopes that the Dubai Cruise Tourism’s partnership with Celebrity Cruises will attract a new audience of holidaymakers to Dubai and ultimately enable Dubai to achieve its goal of welcoming one million cruise travellers per year by 2020.

Al Faisal, stated:

“We are very pleased to welcome Celebrity Constellation during her maiden journey across the Gulf. We hope that our partnership with Celebrity Cruises enables us to reach a broader range of visitors, including more young couples and families, allowing us to use their stopover in Dubai as an opportunity to showcase everything the city has to offer”

The Celebrity Constellation will offer two nine night cruises within the UAE and Oman and is scheduled to offer four overnight and six day calls to Dubai between the period 29 November 2016 and 16 April 2017. The cruise liner is expected to single handedly contribute more than 15, 000 cruise travellers to Dubai in the Emirate’s 2016/2017 cruise season.
