Vacaya’s Inaugural Ptown Cruise recently made Cape Cod history with Differio onboard as the first large-scale cruise to ever sail to and overnight in Provincetown, MA. Sailing out of Port Liberty, NJ, the ninety thousand-ton Celebrity Summit successfully docked on August 15 disembarking over 2,000 passengers.
Vacaya is one of the newest vacation companies offering luxury cruise and all-inclusive resort vacations with customized itineraries. Provincetown proved to be an idyllic vacation destination perfect for Vacaya’s adults-only clientele also catering to the LGBT community.
In preparation for the cruise, Vacaya partnered with Differio as one of its representative brands supporting the inaugural trip. With Differio onboard, Vacaya’s cruise passengers gained access to trendy menswear items like mens rompers at their limited-time cruise boutique, which are normally sold online only. While Celebrity Cruises is known for carrying predominantly upscale luxury brands, Differio stood out as one of the more popular onboard boutiques for both its uniqueness and affordability.
The Celebrity Summit ship that sailed into Ptown was among Celebrity Cruise Line’s $500-million modernization program, which entailed fully renovated staterooms, sundecks, lounges, and restaurants. In addition to its luxurious accommodations, this cruise itinerary included premier celebrity headliners, such as Katharine McPhee, Kristin Chenoweth, and Leslie Jordan.
During the first day at sea, Differio kicked off the occasion with an official welcome party. The Celebrity Summit made further port stops at Saint John, Canada and Bar Harbor, Maine before finally docking at Provincetown, MA. Once the ship arrived at its final port stop, cruise passengers disembarked in festive cruise attire, like mens rompers and fedora hats, making it a most memorable sight.
Although Provincetown is still new to docked mega ships, locals are already used to the regular influx of tourists visiting the town, especially during the summer season. It’s still uncertain whether Provincetown will continue welcoming large-scale cruise ships into their ports due to the amount of passengers that nearly doubles their total town population.
