FROM THE BRIDGE
Just for you—your exclusive Captain’s Club Newsletter is here
June was a very busy month as we had two very special Celebrate with the CEO sailings aboard Celebrity Eclipse® in Alaska and Celebrity Edge® in Europe. Our President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo covered a lot of amazing ground with our guests. From whale watching in Icy Strait Point to a private tour of the Prince’s Palace in Monaco, it was an unforgettable experience. Take a peek at some highlights from these two incredible sailings below.
We’ve introduced new shows on our newest ship, Celebrity Edge and tweaked others based on your feedback. We recently added Colors of Life to our theater, which features a man trapped in a black-and-white world until a mysterious muse helps him discover a more colorful way to look at life. Take a look at this exclusive behind-the-scenes interview with some of the stars from the show.
We’re opening up the world in new places with new spaces—now more than ever—for our 2020 season of sailings. With more than 280 ports in 77 countries, more than 165 overnight stays, and even more time to explore some of the most incredible destinations on earth, you’ll open your world even further with our carefully curated itineraries and in-depth shore excursions offered in every port.
We’re excited to introduce Celebrity ApexSM, the second ship in our Edge Series. She’ll be debuting in Europe, where she’ll join her sister, Celebrity Edge®. Celebrity Infinity® returns to the Mediterranean with an exciting mini season of sailings from Lisbon, Portugal—a first for us. These sailings visit breathtaking ports on the Iberian Peninsula on the way to Barcelona, including Valencia, Malaga, and La Coruna, Spain and Porto, Portugal. Even more exciting, is that we spend two full days and an overnight stay in Trieste, which gives you the opportunity to explore Trieste and Venice all in one in-depth stop.
Experience the stunning beauty of the great outdoors in Iceland aboard Celebrity Summit®, one of our first ships to be revolutionized. This itinerary also includes a visit to our new port of call, Qaqortoq in graceful Greenland, jaw-dropping views of Prins Christian Sund, and beautiful scenery for cruising, with mountains reaching 4,000 feet, glaciers inching toward the sea, and tidal currents that limit the formation of ice.
We’re bringing even more experiences to the Land Down Under with the introduction of our newly revolutionized Celebrity Eclipse® and her sister ship, Celebrity Solstice®. Australia and New Zealand will now have two of our award-winning Solstice® Class ships navigating the waters of this amazing corner of the world. And, for the very first time, we’re sailing from Melbourne as a home port with Celebrity Eclipse. Celebrity Solstice will continue to call Sydney home while she’s Down Under.
Experience Dubai and India aboard the newly revolutionized Celebrity Constellation® in 2020. All the new spaces perfectly complement the new places she’ll visit, including her first-ever stop in Penang, Malaysia, the “Pearl of the Orient”. From incredibly modern cities to ancient temples, Dubai and India offer some of the most exciting contrasts in the world. Unravel the mysteries of these exotic destinations on a vacation that offers every comfort of home—and so much more.
Take your vacation moments to luxurious new heights aboard the recently revolutionized Celebrity Summit®. And, we’ve added an overnight in the exciting city of Charleston, South Carolina on 10-night sailings. Full of southern charm, it’s a bustling city with small-town warmth—the perfect complement to the British charm and island vibes you’ll experience in Bermuda on the same sailing. Celebrity Summit calls Cape Liberty its home during her 7-night summer sailings to Bermuda. Another memorable addition to these sailings is the up-close views you’ll have of Lady Liberty as Celebrity Summit circles Liberty Island as she sails out on her way to Bermuda.
