Award-Winning Brand Reaches Record Number of Destinations, Adds Greenland, Statue of Liberty and Charleston, S.C. to Itineraries
MIAMI, FL – December 12, 2018
Celebrity Cruises’ 2020-21 season will be the brand’s most expansive yet, offering travelers more destinations to uncover and time to explore the wonders of North America. Travelers will have the opportunity to sail on newly modernized ships as the brand continues to invest in luxuriously redesigned accommodations, refreshing spaces, and custom experiences across its fleet as part of THE CELEBRITY REVOLUTION.
From Alaska and the Pacific Coast to Canada and the Atlantic, no matter which award-winning ship travelers choose, fantastic itineraries, in-depth excursions and spectacular tours will bring them closer to the majesty of North America than ever imagined.
CELEBRITY SUMMIT TRAVERSES THE EAST COAST WITH NEW PORTS AND LONGER STAYS
Modernized and eager to travel, Celebrity Summit will kick off her North American season of sailings with a completely new program. She’ll expand her itineraries to visit 19 destinations and 7 countries – both marking new milestones – and bring travelers to Greenland for the first time, along with a Statue of Liberty experience. She’ll stay for more than 10 hours in port at a record 56 stops, docking in 39 of those ports for more than 12 hours. Travelers have never had so many choices and chances to explore beyond her decks.
New 10-night cruises will start the summer, bringing travelers south to historic Charleston, S.C. and to the British charm of Bermuda – the perfect warm-weather escape. Another seven-night itinerary to Bermuda will include a new stop in Newport, R.I., and an up-close experience with Lady Liberty herself as the ship circles Liberty Island and sails out on her way to the pink sands of Bermuda. As one of the most popular tourist sites in the United States, the Statue of Liberty is a definite must-see – and from the top decks of Celebrity Summit, the views are exceptional.
In August, Celebrity Summit will offer new opportunities to travel between North America and Europe with two, 14-night sailings from Cape Liberty to Dublin and then from Dublin to Boston. Travelers will experience new ports of Prins Christian Sund and Qaqortoq, Greenland, offering a once-in-a-lifetime experience where floating icebergs and frolicking whales will mystify guests in the arctic Riviera.
Following these exciting summer sailings, Celebrity Summit will settle in Boston, her new homeport, and offer 12-night Canada and New England itineraries for the fall season.
CELEBRITY ECLIPSE, MILLENNIUM, AND SOLSTICE EXPLORE THE BREATHTAKING WILDS OF ALASKA
