With spring in the air, thoughts are turning to the summer holidays. Celebrity Cruises’ family holidays at sea offer fantastic value for money, an abundant choice of dining options and entertainment for all generations, as well as the chance to see some of the most exciting cities in Europe together.


As part of Celebrity Cruises’ 2019 summer season, Celebrity Silhouette will offer its first ever Mediterranean cruise departing from Southampton during the school summer holidays. Perfect for families, the 14-night Western Mediterranean cruise, departing on 28 July, whisks the family from the Hampshire port to exciting cities in the sun-drenched Mediterranean including Lisbon, Barcelona and Rome.


Budding adventurers, scientists and explorers will be entertained thanks to the Anturus Explorer Academy, exclusive to Celebrity Cruises. Free for children on board, it’s the ultimate mix of education and entertainment with fantastic science experiences, demonstrations and challenges.


Based on bringing subjects such as science, technology, engineering and maths to life, the activities engage and excite young minds. Designed to nurture the next generation of inventors and innovators, the Anturus Explorer Academy provides content to schools throughout the UK to ignite the imaginations of young people.


The Anturus Explorer Academy is just one element of Celebrity Cruises’ re-launched ‘Camp at Sea’ on-board programme that provides children and teenagers with opportunities to uncover the world around them through a series of special activities. These include making weather stations and understanding how they work, as well as testing out each other’s creations. Plus children will develop the skills to become an explorer by creating flags, developing a new nation and getting to grips with survival skills.


Cruising with your little darlings is undoubtedly a convenient and fun way to explore the world. Celebrity Silhouette is like a floating resort with endless options to keep all ages entertained. Meanwhile you and your family are transported from destination to destination, while unpacking just once.
