He has been a castaway on a Scottish island, raced across the Antarctic and trekked the Sahara – and now adventurer, writer and broadcaster Ben Fogle is putting all that experience to good use as he partners with Celebrity Cruises as its ‘Destination Expert’.
To launch the partnership, Ben has filmed a selection of destination guides offering guests tips and advice of where to go and what to do in a variety of cities visited by Celebrity Cruises. The video destination guides were launched on Friday 30th August, along with a whole range of fun and interactive content for first-time and more experienced cruisers, at www.celebritycruises.co.uk/cruises/benfogle/
Later this year, Ben and Celebrity Cruises will launch a series of exclusive ‘Ben Fogle inspired’ shore excursions that will be rolled out in a selection of destinations worldwide during 2014. Celebrity will also launch Celebrity Exclusives in 2014, which include a selection of once in a lifetime experiences such as a private helicopter transfer to lunch at La Bastide de Moustiers, Alain Ducasse’s charming Provencal inn, or snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters of Mountain Point in southeast Alaska.
Ben Fogle said: “My travels have taken me across the globe, but there’s one travel experience I’ve never had – a cruise. I am really looking forward to working with Celebrity Cruises and discovering each spectacular destination and doing it in luxury for once. There is something timeless about ocean travel. I want to learn, discover and explore all there is about life on one of these remarkable ships.”
