The most illustrious line-up of opera and musical theatre legends ever assembled on water, including Katherine Jenkins OBE, Alfie Boe and Teddy Tahu Rhodes, will thrill you with their talents on the first of two luxury European cruises you will take as part of this elegant exploration of the fine arts. Our hosted escapade begins in London with premium accommodation and tours of Kensington Palace, Windsor Castle, the backstage workshops of the Royal Opera House and a visit to the unique Wallace Collection art exhibition at Hertford House.

The beautiful Celebrity Silhouette then awaits for a 7-night Bravo! Cruise of the Performing Arts to Spain and France. This sensational experience will boast a stellar cast of stars from the stage, including the National Symphony Orchestra and cellist and conductor Julian Lloyd Webber - the brother of Andrew Lloyd Webber. In Bilbao, you’ll receive red carpet treatment during a private tour of the spectacular Guggenheim Museum followed by an exclusive reception in the stunning atrium.  You’ll be the envy of other passengers when they disembark back in Southampton and you remain onboard for your second voyage - a 14-night cruise to Russia, Scandinavia and Germany that will take your classical adventure an octave higher. Indulge in the medieval romance of Tallinn, the quirky charms of Helsinki, the vibrant culture of Berlin and the pretty islands and cobblestoned streets of Stockholm. As a bonus, our package includes a night of entertainment and local cuisine at Copenhagen’s historic Tivoli Gardens and tours of St Petersburg’s garland of glittering palaces plus an enthralling evening performance at the historic Mariinsky Theatre - once the playground of Russian composer, Peter Tchaikovsky.


With Cruise Express looking after the details of this incredible, musical adventure the whole way, you are promised a rich, sensory experience that will resound with you forever. Bravo!
