MIAMI – December 11, 2019
Celebrity Cruises invites guests to discover a world of new with the unveiling of their 2021-22 season of sailings, where the brand’s growing fleet of 14 stunning ships will visit more than 280 destinations in nearly 75 countries across all seven continents.
“Our mission at Celebrity Cruises is to open up the world for our guests,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “For our 2021-22 season of sailings, we’ve searched the planet to curate the most incredible new and world-opening vacation experiences we could find. We’ll bring you to places that will stay with you long after you’ve left them, including new ports of call in Europe, Asia, South America, and Alaska.”
Celebrity’s already impressive lineup of destinations is expanding to include eight spectacular new ports of call in 2021-22, including Taranto, Italy; Salvador de Bahia, Brazil; Ilocos, Philippines; Ishigaki, Japan; three new ports in Greece – Zakynthos, Hydra, and Thessaloniki; and the Kenai Peninsula in Homer, Alaska, the highlight of a brand-new Cruisetour debuting in 2021. The brand’s new season of sailings will also feature more than 125 overnight stays in more than 30 of the world’s most dynamic places, including a new overnight stay in Porto, Portugal, and the chance to celebrate New Year’s Eve with a Latin twist in the vibrant city of Montevideo, Uruguay.
Of course, the highly awarded Celebrity Edge is a destination in itself – named one of the World’s Greatest Places of 2019 by TIME Magazine1– and the second-in-series Celebrity Apex is poised to double that perfection.

In the new season, the newly modernized Celebrity Solstice will mark a historic first: The first ship in Celebrity’s groundbreaking Solstice Series to sail Asia. Celebrity Eclipse will also return to the Last Frontier for the first time since its “revolutionary” transformation, while Celebrity Infinity will sail its first Mediterranean season since being transformed from bow to stern.
