Sailing from the Port of Los Angeles, Celebrity Calls on the Region for the First Time Since 2014
MIAMI – Jan. 14, 2021 – Following an eight-year absence, Celebrity Cruises announced, today, its return to the Mexican Riviera with a variety of 7-night and 8-night sailings. Departing from the Port of Los Angeles, Celebrity Millennium will offer twelve sailings from late September through mid-December, before embarking on a special 15-night bucket-list Panama Canal crossing over the holidays.
Celebrity Millennium was recently transformed as part of the line’s extensive multi-million dollar Celebrity Revolution,’ making it one of the most modern and unique ships at sea. The ship features Celebrity Cruises’ signature contemporary, high-style spaces and onboard experiences including: generous staterooms with luxurious new eXhaleâ bedding and Cashmereâ mattresses; The Retreatâ, an exclusive area for suite guests offering a private sundeck, lounge and an exclusive restaurant, Luminae, with a menu created by globally renowned chef Daniel Boulud; a newly redesigned spa; and the Sunset Bar, offering some of the best views from the ship.
And, because vacations should be effortless from the start, Wi-Fi, drinks and tips are now ‘Always IncludedSM’ in a Celebrity cruise purchase, simplifying the booking experience. In addition, the line’s ‘Cruise with Confidence’ program provides flexible cancellations and best price guarantees.
“With Celebrity Millennium sailing the summer 2022 Alaska season, we saw an opportunity to then head south and bring our stunning ship to the LA region, said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises. “As the ship has just completed a voyage of transformation, she will provide the perfect surroundings for West Coasters ready for their own exciting transformative getaway in 2022.”
The two Mexican Riviera itineraries visit some of the most sun-drenched spots on the Pacific Coast: the romance of Puerto Vallarta, nestled between the Sierra Madre mountains and the Pacific ocean; the exciting vibe of Cabo San Lucas at the tip of the Baja Peninsula; the pristine beaches of Mazatlán, also known as the Pacific Pearl; and the authentic flavors of Mexico on culinary tours and Guadalupe Valley wine tastings offered in Ensenada.
On the Panama Canal journey, guests will enjoy holiday traditions and ring in the New Year onboard while visiting Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta in the Mexican Riviera; Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala; Puntarenas, Costa Rica; Colon, Panama; and Cartagena, Colombia; along with crossing through one of the world’s greatest manmade wonders – the Panama Canal.
Celebrity Cruises is applying the recommendations of its Healthy Sail Panel of public health and scientific experts to ensure a safe and healthy cruise vacation.
