We’re opening up the world in new places with new spaces—now more than ever—for our 2020-2021 season of sailings. We’re introducing new cities and destination experiences across the globe. From exciting new ports in Japan, Greenland, and Italy (to name a few) to Canadian Rockies Cruisetours that will lead you far from the coastline into the breathtaking wilderness of the rugged Rocky Mountains. 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. You’ll find something for every kind of traveler, from the seasoned globe-trotter searching for a new favorite corner of the world to the first-time explorer expanding their horizons to discover just what the world has to offer.
We’ve added new ports, including Salvador De Bahia, Brazil and Ishigaki, Japan to the growing list of destinations we visit, and we’re making much-anticipated returns to Kusadasi, Turkey; Agadir, Morocco; and Penang, Malaysia. The new places and new spaces in our 2020-21 season of sailings offer so many world-opening experiences, you’ll find deciding which one you want to book next an adventure of its own.
In our 2020-21 season, we’re excited to introduce Celebrity Apex℠, the second ship in our Edge Series. She’ll be debuting in Europe, where she’ll join her sister, Celebrity Edge®. After raising the bar on vacations in the Mediterranean, both ships will offer transatlantic crossings to the sun-soaked islands of the Caribbean, where they’ll winter in modern style. These two ships were designed to change the way you experience the world, and they’ll be taking the world by storm.
Celebrity Edge started The Celebrity Revolution℠, and it continues in 2020-2021 with the modernization of four of our already award-winning ships: Celebrity Silhouette®, Celebrity Constellation®, Celebrity Infinity®, and Celebrity Eclipse®. Our revolutionized fleet will make every Celebrity vacation even more luxurious.
In 2020-21, join us for a journey like no other and experience a leading-edge vacation on our award-winning fleet. Here are some highlights of our amazing destinations.
Explore the beauty and warmth of South America aboard the newly revolutionized Celebrity Silhouette®—the first time she’s sailed these waters. Silhouette has been enhanced with two new suite categories, and an exclusive lounge area reserved just for suite guests—The Retreat. Not only do we have a new ship sailing our South America itineraries, but we visit more destinations than ever before (32 cities in 9 countries). Plus, we’re introducing a new port of call—Salvador De Bahia, Brazil. We’ll also take you to new heights—literally—with a life-changing adventure to Machu Picchu.
We’re bringing even more modern experiences to the Land Down Under with the introduction of our newly modernized Celebrity Eclipse®. Along with her sister ship, Celebrity Solstice®, Australia and New Zealand will have two of our award-winning Solstice® Class ships in this amazing corner of the world visiting even more ports than ever before. 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.
In Asia, India, and Dubai, we have two newly revolutionized ships, Celebrity Constellation® and Celebrity Millennium®, sailing to a new port of call, Ishigaki, Japan. They visit 10 countries and more than 25 incredible cities, featuring longer stays. In fact, our 2020-21 itineraries have more port visits longer than ten hours than ever before. Plus, our itineraries in this region also feature more overnight stays than ever before. Overnight stays include cities like Dubai and Hong Kong—an intriguing destination we haven’t visited for several years.
Sailings in Europe offer new places and new spaces like never before—90 destinations in 27 countries. We’re introducing Celebrity Apex℠, our newest Edge® Series ship, that will make her debut sailing from Southampton, England. Apex will offer our new 10-Night Capital Cities Cruise that visits some of the most iconic capitals in the region. She’ll move to the Mediterranean to summer there with her sister ship, Celebrity Edge®. Along with our two newest ships, the newly revolutionized Celebrity Silhouette® and Celebrity Constellation® will offer incredible sailings so you have even more ways to explore Europe.
This season, we have six stunning ships—including our two newest—visiting 27 sun-soaked Caribbean destinations in 18 countries. Longer stays in ports (many as much as 12 hours) let you explore everything each island has to offer, and five overnight stays, one of them a double overnight, represent the most Caribbean nights we’ve ever offered. The two most innovative ships in paradise, Celebrity Edge® and Celebrity Apex℠, will be island hopping during our 2020-21 Caribbean season. Relax, recharge, and discover the tropical islands like never before.
Our 2020 sailings to Bermuda bring in some exciting new destination experiences as well as the recently modernized Celebrity Summit® to take your vacation moments to luxurious new heights. For starters, we’ve added stops to the exciting city of Charleston, South Carolina. Full of southern charm, it’s a bustling city with a small-town warmth—the perfect complement to the British charm and island vibes you’ll experience in Bermuda on the same sailing.
Discover the beautiful wilds of Alaska aboard our newly revolutionized ships, Celebrity Eclipse® and Celebrity Millennium®, or aboard the first Solstice® Class ship to grace the waters of Alaska, Celebrity Solstice®. With these three award-winning ships offering a variety of itineraries, you’ll experience the rugged beauty of the Last Frontier in luxurious style. Our 2020-2021 season features 7-night itineraries that visit 12 incredible ports and give you even more time to explore them—many give you more than 12 hours to discover everything each port has to offer.
Discover the stunning grace and beauty of the Northwest, as we set sail aboard the newly modernized Celebrity Eclipse®. From the sun-soaked beaches of Southern California to the rich green rainforests of British Columbia, Canada you’ll experience a vacation like no other. With 2 overnight stays, plus 10-12 hour extended stays, there’s ample time to explore these amazing port towns. Eat your way through San Francisco’s amazing food scene, discover the delicious wines of Washington state, stroll the world-class gardens of Vancouver, and so much more.
