Celebrity Silhouette Paris Mini Cruise – 28th April 2018
Celebrity Cruises' strap line is 'Modern Luxury', which is exactly what you'll get on this luxury taster cruise.
Board your cruise ship in Southampton and sail across the Channel to Le Havre and back again. It's short, it's sweet, and it's all quite luxurious.
About this cruise
Celebrity Cruises is the sister company to Royal Caribbean, and so is considered the next step up. Take the best of Royal and ramp it up a notch and that's what you get on Celebrity Cruises.
The cruise line really excels on the gourmet front where food and wine and put front and centre. Entertainment is fabulous, and there's plenty of leisure activities for you and the kids to get up to. Don't miss the real grass lawn on the top deck - it's what makes the Solstice class of ships really special.
Your luxury short break starts in Southampton where you'll board on Saturday. This is a really short cruise but it'll give you a great insight into the world of Celebrity Cruises, so make the most of your afternoon by exploring the ship. You may still be docked in Southampton but that doesn't mean you can't let your hair down.
Set sail that evening bound for France. Enjoy a meal, watch a show, and if you hear about the famous 'Martini flight', drop everything to witness this impressive feat:
On Sunday morning you'll arrive in Le Havre. It's the gateway port to Paris, and while some people will book the optional 2-hour coach journey to the city of love, you might prefer something else. If it were me, I'd spend the morning exploring Le Havre itself and spend the afternoon back on the ship, really getting a good feel for Celebrity Cruises.
Mini breaks on Celebrity Cruises sailing from the UK are *extremely* rare. In the last few years there's been just one annual mini break. If you fancy trying Celebrity, don't miss this golden opportunity.
That night you'll sail back across the Channel bound for Southampton. You'll have another opportunity to sample the exemplary food and beverage options, and time to enjoy the entertainment on offer.
After a comfortable night's sleep, you'll disembark on Monday morning. This is a perfect short weekend if you're able to rock into work a little late on Monday, or if, better still, you can take Monday off.

So you know, the map above shows point-to-point lines which may cross land. Don't worry, your cruise ship will not sprout legs and run across dry land. Instead it's water all the way! Mapping is approximate, and the scheduled times are estimates. Your trip is subject to change as, occasionally, operators have to alter itineraries due to bad weather or unforeseen events.
On Wednesday 21st February 2018, I found a starting price from £350 per person based on two sharing the cheapest cabin (usually this is an inside cabin).
Want to compare this short break to a hotel stay? A starting price of 'from £350 per person' equates to 'from £175 per person per night'.
Are there any extras?
This price normally includes some meals but excludes drinks, gratuities, optional shore excursions, and any applicable flights and transfers (if needed and if excluded). If you want a cabin or suite with a view, these come at a premium (if available).
Cruise prices are based on supply and demand so the more spare cabins there are closer to the sail date, the cheaper the prices often become. After all, no cruise line likes sailing with empty cabins and this cruise sails in 1 month.
I regularly check for price changes by hand, but as they can occur rapidly, please use the link below to get the latest prices.
Remember, prices were correct when I last checked, but may have since changed. Prices are usually based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin.
