Celebrity Cruises Sets Sail for Alaska Beginning July 23
Sailings to Include the Wonder of Alaska’s Inside Passage Iconic Glaciers
MIAMI – May 21, 2021 – Celebrity Cruises announced today its long-awaited return to the incomparable Last Frontier of Alaska.
Beginning July 23, Celebrity will sail a program of seven-night itineraries roundtrip from Seattle on the beautifully appointed Celebrity Summit® recently part of a $500 million fleetwide ‘revolution’ to elevate every detail and refine every guest comfort on the ship.
Celebrity Summit will embark on a series of nine sailings through mid-September, and then reposition to the Caribbean, via a 16-night Panama Canal sailing, where she will begin a series of four- and five-night itineraries.
“I just can't say enough about how wonderful it is to return to Alaska. I have always had a special place in my heart for the incredible people, amazing wildlife and the beauty of this great state and once our guests visit, they do, too,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises. “The Alaskan communities have been hurting without the economic support they receive from tourism, and especially, the cruise industry. I am grateful to our elected officials across the country for recognizing the need and finding a way to restore them to their livelihoods.”
Celebrity’s Alaska cruises take guests to the most unforgettable coastal destinations to marvel at the wildlife, wilderness and natural beauty of the Last Frontier. Sailing the line’s popular Alaska Dawes Glacier Cruise, the ship will visit some of Alaska’s most awe-inspiring destinations including:
All sailings will depart with vaccinated crew and everyone over the age of 16 must be vaccinated; as of August 1, 2021, all US guests ages 12 and older must be fully vaccinated.
