Last year, France ranked fifth in Europe in terms of economic impact of cruising, an estimated $1.262 billion. And guests of Celebrity Cruises can now book a tour of the South of France with a pre-cruise program from Celebrity Explorations.

The itinerary will take a limited number of guests to visit Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and Nice. Afterwards, the guests will board Celebrity Equinox, sailing from Barcelona, Istanbul or Rome.

The complete package includes airfare from Nice to Rome, Barcelona or Istanbul to board Equinox, airfare from Barcelona or Rome to JFK, depending on itinerary, hotel stays for the five nights, all breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners. This package will also provide guests with three guided tours in France, the cruise aboard Equinox, all transfers and all cruise tax and fees.

We think it is the best way to see Europe, being it is all bundled under one program, and it is fully escorted, explains Susana Romero, senior  manager sales, marketing and brand development, Celebrity Vacations & Celebrity Xpedition.

Bookings are available into 2017.
