Christopher Creek is heading back to Italy, France and Spain for another incredible Wine Cruise, this time aboard Celebrity Cruises’ newest ship, Celebrity Reflection! 
 
This 11-night round trip Rome voyage includes some of the most celebrated port cities in Europe – La Spezia (Tuscany), Villefranche, Barcelona (we are overnighting!), Malaga, Gibraltar, Cartagena and Ibiza!
 
Celebrity Reflection is one of the standout ships sailing today.  While onboard there is a multitude of activities to enjoy, but, most significantly, you have an exclusive invitation to join Dominic Foppoli and Liam McCormick of Christopher Creek, as they pour their wine at private receptions, tasting seminars and a sumptuous winemaker's dinner.
 
One of the signature events of a Christopher Creek Wine Cruise is the pre-cruise!  Dominic invites you to join him  on a 4-night pre-cruise journey to his family's homeland in Lombardia, Italy.  This intimate, insider's experience of culture, cuisine, and, of course, wine begins with a day and night on Lake Como before heading to Lombardia.  This is a rare opportunity to visit local wineries, restaurants, and even and ancient Roman hot springs spa with family and friends.  On the last cruise, Dominic planned a fabulous dinner at his family's castle with wine and music...and, he's doing it again!  As an added bonus, we've set up a "moveable feast" motor coach transfer to the ship which includes lunch and wine, dinner and an overnight in Pisa - not your average transfer!
 
Book by February 28 and once you are onboard Celebrity Reflection, you'll be taken care of with your choice of 2 amenities, including Free Wifi, $300 Shipboard Credit, Free Beverage Package or Pre-Paid Gratuities.  If you have any questions on which ones might suit you best, please just ask one of our advisors to help explain the values.  Additionally, make sure you ask about the Specialty Restaurants and the special dining package available (we highly recommend this option).
 
Celebrity Reflection is an ideal ship for wine cruising with a 2-story glass wine tower, where our group will enjoy a private tour, an optional Riedel Comparative Wine Crystal Workshop, conducted by certified sommeliers, and a host of restaurants and bars to enjoy.
 
While ashore, you can wander on your own, choose from a plethora of Celebrity shore excursions, or join Food & Wine Trails for one of our private-to-the-group optional wine tours, including famed Ornellaia.
 
Don't wait!  Call now as this cruise should sell out.  We've scheduled it in summer so it is easier for folks to get away.  And, remember, if you deposit by February 28th, we'll add in two of the amenities!
 

Caio!
