Ambassador Cruise Line Unveils Sailings for Summer/Winter 2022 & Spring 2023

Ambassador Cruise Line's Sailings for Summer/Winter 2022 & Spring 2023

After more than a year of restrictions, Brits are chomping at the bit for the chance to travel. New research by Ambassador, the first British cruise line to launch in more than a decade, has found that 40% of Brits* are looking to book a trip this year for 2022.

Seeing new places (49%), fully switching off and relaxing (47%) and enjoying the warm weather (35%) are the top three things that Brits are most looking forward to. In addition to this, 25% are planning to travel to multiple locations in one trip to make the most of it and make up for the lost time.

The cruise line's CEO Christian Verhounig

While many may still feel nervous about jumping on a flight and the confinements of a plane, sailing on the sea on a no-fly cruise offers the opportunity to travel without hassle. 47% of those who would consider a cruise say that it is important to them to join one without having to fly to meet it.

Ambassador Cruise Line is confident that Brits still want to travel. Chief Executive Officer Christian Verhounig (right) said, “Demand is beginning to outgrow capacity. As our research demonstrates, there is pent up demand to travel, and in turn, cruise.

As a result, there is huge, unfulfilled demand for no-fly departures and the type of experience we are offering with our brand-new British cruise line – premium-value and friendly service, smaller ships, traditional values and a company that really understands what their guests want.

It is a privilege to launch Ambassador’s first brochure, and we believe that our guests will benefit from our inaugural season fares and offers”.

Ambassador is offering a mixed itinerary, no-fly programme from London Tilbury on its first ship, Ambience.

The First Edition inaugural 2022/23 brochure features 33 voyages covering over 90 different ports, with itineraries spanning the British Isles, Norwegian Fjords, the Baltics, St. Petersburg, Greenland, the Arctic, Iceland, the Canary Islands, Cuba, the Caribbean, Cape Verde, and Scandinavia from 6 April 2022 to 16 May 2023.

The Inaugural Fares for Summer & Winter 2022 and Spring 2023 are the “Fair Maiden Fares” and “Ambassador Fares”. These fares are capacity controlled and valid for all bookings made by 31 July 2021.

Specific solo traveller options
The adult-focussed, Ambassador is primarily aimed at the 50-plus market. Solo travellers will also be well catered for with some attractive deals. For example, Ambassador has assigned 89 of Ambience’s cabins to solo cruisers. These single-occupancy cabins are spread over five separate cabin grades at a supplement that is up to 70% cheaper than industry standards, a special 30% single supplement against the equivalent twin fare with Ambassador.

Ambassador believes that these are the best value single supplement prices in the market on comparable sailings. There is also a tailored programme of events for those sailing alone for six nights or more, such as a welcome cocktail party specifically for solo guests.
