NEW CARIBBEAN CRUISES 2021
Explore everything these breathtaking islands have to offer
Nothing says vacation like island-hopping through the Caribbean, so in 2021-22, we’ll have eight award-winning ships sailing the tropics. Our Caribbean cruises 2021 include the two most innovative ships at sea, Celebrity Edge® and Celebrity ApexSM, as well as a newcomer to paradise, our revolutionized Celebrity Millennium®. In all, you can discover nearly 40 sun-drenched tropical destinations on a 2021 Caribbean cruise with the best premium cruise line.
Things are bound to heat up in Miami, the cruise capital of the world. Stroll and snap pictures in Wynwood, the arts district, where murals and street art brilliantly collide. Go shopping along Calle Ocho, explore Brickell, or put down a towel and tan on South Beach. If you have a little extra time before you head to your ship on embarkation day, take in beautiful vistas from Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a national historic landmark, or the Perez Art Museum, home to some of the most captivating contemporary art in the world.
Affectionately known as the “Venice of America,” Fort Lauderdale is a waterfront paradise with a slightly more laid-back energy compared to neighboring Miami. You’ll depart from Port Everglades, one of the biggest cruise ports in the world. In Fort Lauderdale, don’t miss the beautifully kept beaches, growing craft beer scene, or take an afternoon to explore the tropical Hugh Taylor Birch State Park.
Welcome to Cigar City. We return to Tampa time and again because of its relaxed energy and bayside charm. Explore Ybor City, where you’re likely to see beloved, local chickens freely crossing the road. Take the kids to the Florida Aquarium. Animal lovers won’t want to miss the ZooTampa at Lowry Park. Take an unforgettable drive across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge to visit quirky St. Petersburg, home to some of Florida’s top-rated beaches. Take in Salvador Dalí’s masterworks at the Dali Museum, or take pictures of the unmissable Don CeSar hotel, which is painted a bubble gum shade of pink.
Captivating San Juan is Puerto Rico’s rich and vibrant capital city. Colorful pastel architecture and a winding cobblestone downtown district lead up to El Morro, a historic citadel guaring San Juan, which offers postcard-worthy vistas and photo ops. Lounge on Isla Verde Beach. Sip a fruity, frozen cocktail or take a rum distillery tour of the Casa Bacardi. Or, take a day trip just beyond the city to El Yunque National Park, where you can get acquainted with the tropical flora and fauna the island has to offer.
Celebrity Edge®, named one of the World’s Greatest Places of 2019 by Time magazine, will whisk you to some of the greatest places in the Caribbean. In 2021-22, the ship that’s a destination in itself will now offer a variety of in-depth 10- and 11-night Caribbean itineraries sailing round-trip from Fort Lauderdale. Discover one postcard-perfect island after another on a 10-night itinerary visiting St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Barbados, St. Kitts, and Antigua, where we’re thrilled to offer a luxurious new private beach club experience, complete with cabanas, a resort-style pool, and a swim-up bar. Edge® will also sail two unique 11-night itineraries, one that journeys into the new locks of the Panama Canal and down to the Southern Caribbean and another that explores each of the ABC Islands—Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao.
Our second Edge® series ship, Celebrity ApexSM, doubles the perfection in the Caribbean, offering alternating 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries sailing round-trip from Fort Lauderdale. Sail east to San Juan, St. Thomas, and St. Kitts, or sail west to Key West, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Belize City, which is a new port for Apex® this season. But why choose? Book both sailings back-to-back for the ultimate tropical escape
New in 2020-21, our revolutionized Celebrity Millennium® is charting a course for the warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean, offering two exciting new itineraries. Explore in depth on a 10- night Eastern Caribbean itinerary visiting the popular ports of Nassau, San Juan, St. Croix, St. Johns, St. Kitts, and St. Maarten. If you’re looking for a quick getaway, Celebrity Millennium’s 4-night itinerary visiting Key West and Nassau is the perfect long weekend escape. For travelers who want to check the Panama Canal off their bucket lists, Celebrity Millennium® will offer a variety of 15- and 16-night sailings through this famous feat of engineering, traveling between Fort Lauderdale and San Diego or Fort Lauderdale and Los Angeles.
Since we know a good place to sail when we see it, our revolutionized Celebrity Constellation® will continue to make Tampa its winter home in 2021-22, offering 10- and 11-night tropical vacations. These longer sailings are the perfect escape from the winter blues, visiting incredible ports of call, including St. Kitts and Nevis, Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, and Colon (just to name a few). You’ll also have the chance to enjoy an overnight stay in Cartagena so you can experience this colorful Colombian city to the fullest. We’ve carefully designed these itineraries to give you the best of the Caribbean—sun-drenched beaches, colorful reefs, local cuisines, and so much more.
When it comes to our unrivaled 2021-22 Caribbean season, we’re just getting started. Our breathtaking Celebrity Reflection® will offer alternating 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries sailing round-trip from Fort Lauderdale.

And once again, Celebrity Summit® will offer its popular 7-night Southern Caribbean itineraries sailing round-trip from the dynamic city of San Juan.
We love sailing the Caribbean so much, we never leave. That’s why Celebrity EquinoxSM will again be your award-winning ticket to island time—any time of year. Choose from 6- and 8-night Caribbean itineraries in the summer and 9- and 12-night itineraries in the winter. It’s a slice of paradise whenever you need it most.
There’s an endless array of shore excursions in the Caribbean for every speed and traveler preference. Foodies can experience top-notch culinary excursions tailored around specialty cuisines and local flavors, whether you want to satisfy your sweet tooth or sample rum. If doing nothing is penciled in on your agenda, our Caribbean sailings offer beach breaks at luxury resorts throughout the region, like in Punta Cana and Costa Maya. Sit beneath a shaded beach umbrella, or pamper yourself with a resort massage. Animal sightings are par for the course in the Caribbean, where you can swim with dolphins or see stingrays. Animal lovers won’t want to miss the incredible animal services and conservation efforts growing each year in the Caribbean.
Experience the cities of the Sunshine State, like Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or Tampa, before you depart or after your cruise. Sample authentic key lime pie in Key West, or take an exhilarating airboat ride through the Florida Everglades. Once you’re in the Caribbean, all bets are off on how much rest and relaxation you can fit into one vacation.
Snorkeling, swimming, and suntanning on white-sand beaches are Caribbean cruise highlights you shouldn’t miss out on. Local catches rule the menu, along with rum-soaked cakes and cocktails, Bajan delicacies, top-notch cafecitos and guava pastries, and delicious tostones in San Juan.
In St. Croix, one of the most picturesque of the U.S. Virgin Islands, go kayaking at the Salt River Bay National Historic Park and Ecological Preserve. Divers love the park’s submarine canyon, brimming with coral and sponges. Take a walking tour of a 19th-century sugar cane plantation. In St. Maarten, the town of Philipsburg is home to some of the best boutique shopping in the Caribbean.
Our cruise itineraries range from 6-night jaunts to 11- and 12-night expeditions. You won’t regret spending your vacation surrounded by clear waters, culinary surprises, and a chance to live on island time.
Whether you’re hopping around Western, Southern, or Eastern Caribbean, we have a ship and a sailing that’s perfect for you. Escape a bitter winter or soak up the summertime sun. The Caribbean is a beautiful place to be year-round.
