From racing across the Antarctic to trekking the Sahara, there is very little that Ben Fogle has not tackled during his career. Now he will take on a whole new challenge as he becomes the destination ambassador for Celebrity Cruises.
Ben Fogle is a renowned TV destination enthusiast who has become an extremely well regarded presenter on some of the biggest TV programmes. Fogle first became famous for participating in the BBC reality show Castaway 2000 and it was from here that his career rocketed.
Fogle has presented many popular TV shows including Countryfile, Extreme Dreams and many well-known sports programmes. He has become especially famous for his love of travel and destination programmes.
Partnering with a cruise line will bring a new adventure for Fogle as it will give him the chance to share his knowledge of the world with guests onboard Celebrity Cruises. This programme is sure to excite passengers as it will allow them to explore amazing destinations with an experienced traveller.
It has been revealed that Fogle has filmed a selection of destination guides that offer guests tips and advice of where to go, what to see and what to do in some of Celebrity’s ports of call. The videos have been released by Celebrity and can be found on their website.
Other exciting news that comes with this programme is that Celebrity and Fogle will launch a series of ‘Ben Fogle inspired’ shore excursions. These will be released throughout a selection of destinations around the world in 2014.
Ben Fogle said “My travels have taken me across the globe but there’s one travel experience I’ve never had – a cruise. I’m really looking forward to working with Celebrity Cruises and discovering each spectacular destination and doing it in luxury for once. There is something timeless about ocean travel. I want to learn, discover and explore all there is about life on one of these remarkable ships.”
