MIAMI, FL – December 12, 2017 – Celebrity Cruises continues to open up the world with the continent-spanning unveiling of the brand’s new sailings to some of the most dynamic ports across the globe. With more sailings to iconic locales in Asia, including India and Dubai, Australia, and North, South, and Central America, there’s an option for anyone and everyone onboard Celebrity’s award-winning fleet.
Today’s reveal wraps up Celebrity’s 2019-20 deployment announcements, reaching a tally of more than 300 destinations in over 70 countries across the world, including more than 160 exciting overnights, plus over 20 double-overnight stays in nearly 40 cities, making 2019-20 one of Celebrity’s richest seasons yet.
For the 2019-20 season, Celebrity has the entire continent of Asia covered, from the deserts of Dubai to the jungles of Vietnam – and every awe-inspiring locale in between.
Celebrity Constellation, now departing from the ultra-luxurious city of Dubai, will retrace the ancient Spice Route all the way to Singapore on Celebrity’s own Best of India and Sri Lanka itinerary, stopping along the way in iconic ports of Goa, India; Mumbai, India; Colombo, Sri Lanka, and more. From Mumbai, where Celebrity offers an overnight stay, guests can take advantage of the brand’s heralded Multi-Day Adventures excursion to the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra – a fully guided land journey that’s a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The stunning Celebrity Eclipse will once again return to South America for the 2019-20 season, visiting nearly 30 incredible destinations in 11 different countries – with more overnight stays that allow guests to linger longer in some of the region’s most dynamic cities.
Guests can cross some amazing destinations off their bucket-list, like Buenos Aires, Argentina; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and even the tip of Antarctica. They can explore the iconic Iguazu Falls, marvel at the towering Osorno Volcano, soak up the sun on the beaches of Ipanema, and follow in paths of great explorers as they sail around Cape Horn.
Nothing says “vacation” like sailing from one gorgeous Hawaiian paradise to the next – with the best premium cruise line in the industry – so, in 2019-20, Celebrity Eclipse will visit Hawaii, offering 10- to 12-night sailings between Vancouver and Honolulu, plus a 15-night round-trip sailing from Los Angeles.
No bucket list is complete without a Panama Canal crossing. Experiencing this feat of engineering is a must for every world traveler, so for Celebrity’s 2019 season, the brand is once again offering two 15-night, canal-traversing vacations sailing between Ft. Lauderdale and San Diego aboard the stunning Celebrity Infinity.
Not only will guests experience what it’s like to travel through the original locks of the Panama Canal, connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, but they will also get to discover an array of breathtaking, tropical destinations along the way. Visit the captivating beaches of Cabo San Lucas, marvel at the colorful colonial architecture of Cartagena, and hike the thriving rainforests of Costa Rica – all on one incredible Celebrity vacation – with a wide variety of in-depth shore excursions to help make the most of every destination.
In 2019-20, Celebrity Millennium will offer eye-opening vacations throughout the Far East and Southeast Asia, with an array of sailings departing from Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Singapore – with more sailings that immerse guests in the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan. Celebrity Millennium’s Southeast Asia itineraries will visit bucket-list destinations, like Bangkok, Hanoi, and Taipei.
Fresh from her multi-million-dollar revitalization, part of the Celebrity Revolution, Celebrity Millennium returns to Asia. Completely redesigned staterooms will make unwinding after a day of adventure easier than ever, and dazzlingly renovated public venues will be the perfect complement to the exciting destinations guests will visit.
Back by popular demand, Celebrity Solstice returns to Australia and New Zealand in 2019-20, visiting more than 30 over-the-top destinations Down Under, now with more overnight stays in more cities and more stays of longer than 12 hours, and a brand-new port of call – the charming southeast seaside town of Eden, Australia.
Celebrity will continue to visit some of Australia and New Zealand’s most sought-after destinations, including Wellington, Tauranga, Milford Sound, Sydney, Cairns, Melbourne, and more, while also bringing back the incredibly popular Great Barrier Reef itinerary that gives guests the opportunity to explore the largest coral reef system in the world.
In 2019-20, Celebrity Solstice will also visit the gorgeous islands of Hawaii, offering 10-night sailings between Vancouver and Honolulu. With overnight stays in both Oahu and Maui and visits to both sides of the Big Island, Celebrity’s Hawaii vacations give guests time to do as much (or as little) as they’d like, from laid-back days on a postcard-perfect beach to adventurous hikes through lush tropical rainforests.
