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

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.”
