Price for a three-night stay including flights and breakfast is €335, but there is even better value for a seven-night stay as the flight cost is only €81 for seven nights – the total cost including flights and the Zephyr Agadir apartments is just €238 per person.

  • Hi Sarah booked celebrity beyond thanks to your insta story .. 21st July all inclusive + , but what would you recommend booking prior to the cruise ( onboard restaurants , spa , trips or anything else that requires pre booking ) I downloaded celeb app. Opens for me on June 5th .. I know your crazy busy but any tips be very grateful , also our first cruise .. Seàn & Ais ..
    (Ladies in Atlantic were very helpful cheers )

    • Im delighted to hear that, Im sure you will love it. We ate in RAW on 5 and it was superb if you like sushi, I believe the Steakhouse is excellent and Le Petit Chef is a novel idea if you want to try that, but the main dining restaurants are great so I wouldn’t book more than one or two speciality dining. Not sure if you can pre book to dine on the Magic Carpet but if you can I would do that. Excursions depends on the destination, some ports you will just want to wander around yourself, it is hard to recommend as I can’t see what the excursions are. Perhaps when things open for booking check back with me or the girls in Atlantic re excursions then.

      Cheers

      Sarah
