Winter 2024-2025 is a big season for Celebrity Cruises, with four ships coming online and new Caribbean itineraries to some of the most popular destinations. Prepare to book happy clients on the Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Equinox and Celebrity Summit—and make sure they take plenty of sunscreen.
“We are so excited to unveil this new program. It provides our guests with more options to experience the natural beauty of the Caribbean, which is elevated by our personalized experiences on board,” said Laura Hodges Bethge, president of Celebrity Cruises, in a press statement. “As part of this expansion, we are thrilled to add Port Canaveral to our list of home ports—it is a perfect market to reach a wide mix of both in- and out-of-state travelers looking for fun in the Caribbean sun.”
The new itineraries will be available for booking on Aug. 23, 2023.
Celebrity Cruises Will Keep Florida Ports Busy
Three Florida ports will be the home base for Celebrity Cruises’ winter lineup of itineraries: Tampa Bay in the west, Port Everglades in the south and Port Canaveral in Central Florida. There will be much to choose from—40 new itineraries in all—from short jaunts to 7- and 9-night cruises, some of which will take your clients to the line’s private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay.
This is the first time Celebrity Cruises is sailing from Central Florida’s Port Canaveral—Celebrity Equinox will be sailing 20 new itineraries with stops in popular ports such as The Bahamas, Belize, Grand Cayman, Mexico, San Juan and St. Maarten. Have clients looking for Spring Break getaways? Book them on one of the March sailings on the 1st or the 15th, both of which will take them to the famed Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas, where they can enjoy white-sand beaches and turquoise waters, swim-up bars, restaurants, the private Coco Beach Club and much more. Sailings start on Dec. 3, 2024, and go through April 19, 2025.
In South Florida’s Port Everglades, you can book five new sailings aboard the Celebrity Apex from October 2024 through March 2025, with stops in destinations like St. Maarten, San Juan, Grand Cayman and Mexico, plus visits to Perfect Day at CocoCay. Celebrity Summit will also sport five new itineraries to take your clients across the Western and Eastern Caribbean on 5- to 9-night voyages.
West Florida’s Tampa Bay will be the home base for Celebrity Constellation and its roster of 6- to 7-night itineraries—four of them new—for a total of 14 sailings that depart from Jan. 2, 2025, through April 6, 2025. Ports of call include Belize, Honduras, Key West, Mexico and New Orleans (on March 1, just in time for Mardi Gras).
