THE DEAL: Celebrity Cruises is offering a 13-night Asia cruise onboard Celebrity Millennium, sailing from Tokyo to Vancouver on May 10, 2014. Prices start from $2,699 per person for a balcony cabin. The price includes roundtrip airfare, a three-night pre-cruise hotel stay in Tokyo, and up to $100 in onboard credit.
WHAT WE LOVE: Asia with flight inclusions makes this a cruise deal worth paying attention to. Fly to Tokyo (included) and stay three nights in Japan’s major metropolis (included) before boarding your two-week cruise with stops in Aomori and Sapporo, Japan (and even Russia), before docking in Vancouver. Taxes, transfers, a balcony cabin and even $100 in onboard credit top off what’s included for your $2,699. This is the Far East at a very near value.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: Make sure you are either a fan of the ship or the sea for this cruise, which includes nine total days spent on the ocean, with a stretch of six days straight at sea. Aside from your pre-cruise stint in Tokyo, the ports are also a tad obscure, though by no means uninteresting. Petropavlovsk, in Russia, is a very isolated city building its reputation for tourism.
