Ambassador Cruise Line has released a range of deals to mark the launch of its 2023-24 season and second ship, Ambition
The new British cruise line – the first to launch in the UK in a decade – began sailing in April with its first ship, Ambience, and is set to add a second ship to the fleet next year.
The line, which offers good-value, traditional cruises aimed at a 50-plus market, has released its 2023-24 cruise programme along with a number of early-booking offers and discounts to promote the new sailings.
Ambience will be sailing a 120-night Grand Round the World Cruise, the line’s longest-ever itinerary, visiting six continents, 24 countries, 34 ports of call and transiting the Panama Canal along the way. Highlights include visits to New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. This is followed by crossing the Indian Ocean to Kenya, South Africa and the remote islands of Tristan da Cunha and a transatlantic voyage to Brazil, before a return leg via north Africa. Prices start from £9,229 per person.
Second ship Ambition, which joins the fleet on March 4, 2023, will offer no-fly cruises from seven UK ports: Ambassador’s home port of London Tilbury, along with Newcastle, Dundee, Liverpool, Belfast, Bristol and Falmouth. Among the 49 cruises on sale is a maiden voyage to Scandinavia and a Christmas and new year cruise to the Caribbean.
Both ships will operate a series of themed cruises including sports stars, former cricketers and British broadcasting legends including John Sergeant, Jan Lemming and Floella Benjamin, along with dedicated multigenerational sailings aimed at families.
Chief executive Christian Verhounig said: “We are extremely excited to be able to offer our guests several very attractive launch offers, a range of new and exciting itineraries as part of our 2023-24 programme, and launch our second ship Ambition’s inaugural season.”
To mark the new programme, Ambassador’s cruise deals include savings of up to 25% on full fares, including free Wi-Fi with Ambassador Fares, 20% off the top two drinks packages, up to £40 per cabin per night onboard credit (on category six cabins and above), and a 5% group discount on selected sailings plus free places and group dining.
Ambassador has also agreed a new partnership with Essex Cricket Club and is offering free match-day tickets for every new booked guest who wishes to attend.
