NEW EUROPEAN CRUISES 2021-22
Europe cruises 2021 visit famous hot spots & go off-the-beaten path
The glittering cityscapes of Europe perhaps need no introduction. Cities like Rome, Barcelona, and Paris fill the imagination with romantic, idyllic scenes where the days and nights hold infinite promise, where thousands of years of human civilization collide with modern day, where a cup of coffee or a glass of wine are elevated to new heights of luxury.
There are plenty of “firsts” to be had on a European cruise in 2021, even in cities you’ve traveled to before. Your first true merengue in a Paris bakery. In Denmark, count the quaint wooden ships along colorful Nyhavn, the harbor and canal district that so perfectly embodies Copenhagen’s spirit. Sip local port wine in Lisbon, Portugal. In Norway, see a jaw-dropping performance at the Oslo Opera House. Stand and admire Van Gogh’s masterpieces in Amsterdam. Learn from master home cooks in Sicily for the first time. Overnight in Bilbao, Spain, where you can spend the day enjoying the Guggenheim Museum and the neo-Gothic lounge scene in the evenings.
Simply put—Europe is always calling.
The newest ship in our Edge® Series, Celebrity Apex℠, will make her debut in Southampton and offer a mini season of five sailings to breathtaking destinations including the Norwegian Fjords and the northern coasts of Spain and Portugal. She’s also introducing a brand-new 10-Night Capital Cities Cruise from Southampton that features an overnight stay in Oslo and will visit iconic capital cities like Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Paris, and more. After her Northern Europe mini season, she’ll spend the rest of her summer sailing through the Western Mediterranean from Barcelona and Rome.
Celebrity Edge® offers sailings in the eastern Med and the Adriatic including 10- and 11-night itineraries that offer a new overnight stay in Trieste, Italy—a unique crossroads of Latin, Slavic, and Germanic cultures. Celebrity Edge® also visits the Amalfi Coast (a UNESCO World Heritage site), Malta, and the picturesque, sunbaked islands of Greece.
In 2021, discover the best of the Baltic aboard our newly modernized Celebrity Silhouette®. Step aboard a 7- to 14-night sailing and discover the Norwegian Fjords, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and more. We’re also excited to introduce our new 9-Night Northern Cities Cruise, sailing from Southampton, where you’ll enjoy an overnight stay in Oslo, Norway, where the daylight lasts well into the nighttime this time of year. Silhouette also offers itineraries that sail to Iceland and Ireland with incredible overnight stays in Dublin, Ireland and Reykjavik, Iceland.
Celebrity Infinity® returns to the Mediterranean with a mini season of sailings from Lisbon, Portugal—a first for us. Visit breathtaking ports on the Iberian Peninsula on the way to Barcelona, including Valencia, Malaga, and La Coruna, Spain and Porto, Portugal. Celebrity Infinity® is one of two ships we have sailing to and from Venice (Celebrity Constellation® is the other). These ships are among an elite few permitted to sail from Venice.
In 2021, experience the Mediterranean aboard the newly renovated Celebrity Constellation®. Unwind in redesigned staterooms, brilliantly reimagined public venues, and The Retreat Sundeck, an exclusive outdoor lounge area reserved for suite-class guests. Choose from a variety of 9- or 10-night itineraries, including new sailings that feature one country—Italy or Greece.
Journey to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean aboard the award-winning Celebrity Reflection®. She’ll offer three Iceland and Ireland itineraries with round-trip sailings from Dublin. A new 10-Night Irish Sea itinerary will feature visits to Scotland, Ireland, and England, including a first-time visit to Portland, Dorset, UK—a town that sits on a tiny peninsula jutting into the English Channel. Reflection® will also make round-trip sailings from Amsterdam with 12-night itineraries to Scandinavia, Russia, and the British Isles. We’re also excited to be taking Celebrity Reflection® to Israel and Kusadasi, Turkey as part of two round-trip sailings from Rome.
No matter where your ship docks, you can tailor and customize your cruise experience to your interests. Whether you’re touring Tivoli Gardens or discovering deep, meaningful Viking history in Norway, we designed European shore excursions to suit every type of traveler’s fancy—the history buff, the foodie, the family, the animal lover, and the thrill-seeker. Take cooking lessons in Sicily. Visit historic castles and cathedrals. Go on a beach break in the blissful waters of the Adriatic or Ionian Seas. Explore tiny fishing villages or entire European metropolises with skyscrapers as far as the eye can see. Take city tours on foot in walkable towns, or bus through the European countryside, like in Aarhus, Denmark or Palermo, Italy.
What better way to unplug than on a luxurious cruise ship sailing to the Old World where all your whims and cares are taken care of? Experience Europe on the newly revolutionized Celebrity Apex for its inaugural sailing season, like on a 10-Night Capital Cities Cruise that features an overnight stay in Oslo and takes you to iconic capitals like Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Paris. We designed the revolutionary Celebrity Edge to be a destination in and of itself, so as we sail to the Adriatic and the Eastern Mediteranean, you’ll discover new gems, favorite culinary experiences, and sleek venues to fall in love with.
There’s so much to love about Europe. The eclectic mix of architectural styles. The glamorous Italian piazzas and elegant French patisseries. When you’re planning a European cruise in 2021, we take care of the logistics, providing you with itineraries complete with built-in days at sea to rest, relax, and play, whether you’re getting competitive at pool games with the kids or lounging in the spa all afternoon. Take the family, your best friend, or your sweetheart on European shore excursions, where they’ll sample local, fresh ingredients in inventive dishes on culinary tours or see city highlights on a comfortable charter bus.
On a European cruise, we’ll take you to coastal towns that take life at a slower pace than the bustling capitals, where industries like fishing still rule the day. Or, rest and soak up the sun in Malta, along the Amalfi Coast, or Greek Islands big and small. The secret is officially out: luxury in the Old World is alive and well. We depart from all sorts of port cities, bringing you to Europe and Europe to you. Depart from Southampton, England, where you can explore the Titanic Trail or take a day trip to Stonehenge before you even set sail.
In Barcelona, Spain, see La Sagrada Familia stand tall and proud over the city, or shop for handmade souvenirs along Las Ramblas. If you’re craving something more adventurous, why not take an unforgettable, private flamenco class with an authentic Spanish dancer? Cross a postcard-worthy Venice gondola ride down the Grand Canal off your bucket list, or take a market tour to discover the freshest local ingredients Italy has to offer. You’ll discover secret spots in Venice, sip coffee in tucked-away cafes, and sample authentic Venetian risotto. Fall in love from the romantic cities we depart from in 2021.
