Return to Service

What an amazing month we’ve had. After a hiatus of nearly 15 months, we returned to doing what we do best—turning vacation dreams into dream vacations. We couldn’t be more excited to have welcomed our crew and loyal guests back from around the world aboard three of our incredible ships this month. The reimagined Celebrity Millennium® made history sailing to Caribbean shores from St. Maarten on June 6. The new Celebrity Apex℠ made its long-awaited debut on June 19, sailing from Athens, Greece. And, our stunning Celebrity Edge® made its way to the Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale on June 26. To add to the excitement, the modernized Celebrity Silhouette® arrived in Southampton in preparation to welcome guests onboard on July 3. We’re thrilled to bring you exclusive content about these sailings—along with a special limited time double points offer on 2021 sailings when you book your next vacation with us.*

Returning to the Caribbean

On June 5, Celebrity Millennium kicked off our official return to sea. Guests embarked on a 7-night journey to some of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean sailing from St. Maarten. Celebrity Millennium will offer two 7-night itineraries until July 3, when Celebrity Summit® will offer these itineraries. You can discover Aruba, Barbados, and Curaçao, a trifecta of spectacular islands with natural wonders, including caves and rock pools. Or explore Tortola, St. Lucia, and Barbados, and go from lush green landscapes to beautiful sandy coves. You can’t go wrong with either choice. 

Don’t just take our word for it. See what our guests on board had to say about sailing again with us—and check out photos and videos of them on board.

Returning To Athens

On June 19, Celebrity Apex made its long-awaited debut in Europe, departing from Athens. From quaint towns to ancient ruins to idyllic beaches, there are many reasons that a Greek Island cruise is a favorite of many. Guests visited Santorini, Rhodes, Limassol, Mykonos, and Crete. Plus, they were among the first to sail on our newest Edge® Series ship, enjoying exciting experiences on board—from the Magic Carpet® to the transformative atmosphere at Eden. Here’s what guests from the first sailing had to say about this incredible journey.

Returning to Ft. Lauderdale

The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. Just a few days ago, on June 26, Celebrity Edge® led the way with our first sailing from the United States. Guests embarked at Ft. Lauderdale and are enjoying a 7-night sailing to the Caribbean with the first female cruise line captain, Kate McCue, at the helm. Celebrity Edge will continue to offer western and eastern Caribbean itineraries. Visit Costa Maya, Cozumel, and Nassau—or Nassau, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten in between enjoying all that the original Edge® Series ship has to offer. Stretch out on the sandy beaches, sip your favorite tropical cocktail, and unwind on island time. Curious to hear how our guests are enjoying their journey right now? Enjoy these photos and videos of them back at sea after our long hiatus.
