Updated Guidance for Cruises Departing the U.S and Europe. View health and travel requirements
White sand beaches, sapphire-blue sea, the rhythm of reggae on the breeze, and the clink of ice in a rum punch are just a few experiences you’ll have on a Virgin Islands cruise. Once the hangout of pirates and buccaneers, these laid-back islands are devoted to the pleasurable pursuits of sailing, snorkeling, shopping, or simply snoozing in a hammock strung between two coconut palms.
The islands are divided between Britain and the U.S., and each has its own personality. Divers will love St. Croix, while sleepy St. John is all lush rainforest and sugary beaches. St. Thomas is the place for duty-free shopping and fun-filled days. Tortola, the hub of the British Virgin Islands, is the jumping-off point for sleepy Jost Van Dyke, Norman Island, and Virgin Gorda, famed for its tumbled granite rock formations, The Baths. Be whisked away to these paradisiacal islands on a luxury Caribbean cruise with Celebrity Cruises.

Enjoy luxurious staterooms, cuisine, and service as you discover St. Thomas, St. Thomas, The British Virgin Islands and Fort Lauderdale. Climb, snorkel, swim, bike or chill in some of the world’s most beautiful places.
The Virgin Islands is one of the top spots in the Caribbean for both snorkeling and diving. From Tortola, dive the RMS Rhone, now a thriving coral reef teeming with fish. Novice divers can take their first guided plunge in the warm, clear waters off St. Croix, while the more experienced can swim over three wrecks in a single dive. Families, meanwhile, will love the underwater snorkeling trail at pretty Trunk Bay on St. John.
Rum distilling and the Virgin Islands go hand-in-hand, where you’ll find fascinating distilleries and flavor-packed rum cocktails to try. In St. Croix learn about flavored Captain Morgan rum or try local Cruzan rum, the longest established in the USVI. On St. Thomas, try the famous Bushwacker cocktail, a heady mix of coconut rum, chocolate, Amaretto, Kahlua, and Bailey’s. The Painkiller is the potent but refreshing cocktail to try in the BVI.
There are blissful beaches on all the Virgin Islands, from dreamy Honeymoon Beach on St. John to the aquamarine water of Trunk Bay and the gorgeous horseshoe of Magen’s Bay on St. Thomas. On Tortola, you could combine a hike up wooded Sage Mountain with a cooling dip off sheltered Cane Garden Beach. Or take a trip to The Baths on Virgin Gorda, where you can clamber over tumbled granite boulders to grottoes, narrow rock passages, sheltered tide pools, and tiny, white sand coves.
Cruises to the Virgin Islands last between seven and 10 nights, with a wide choice of departure ports and itineraries. You could embark in Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, or San Juan, Puerto Rico and sail either round-trip or one-way between San Juan and Fort Lauderdale.
Celebrity’s luxurious, contemporary ships are perfect for cruising the balmy Caribbean. Relax around the pool, or watch the sun sink over the horizon from the Sunset Bar. On Edge-series ships, you can dine on BBQ favorites at the al fresco Rooftop Garden Grill, or sink into a sofa with your favorite cocktail on the Magic Carpet, with ocean views on three sides. Choose The Retreat for the ultimate in luxury, with access to a private sundeck, exclusive lounge, and fine dining restaurant, Luminae at The Retreat.
Let Celebrity show you the finest of the Virgin Islands, from pristine beaches to vibrant coral reefs. Discover the landscape on a guided hike or a thrilling ATV tour, or fly above the rainforest on a zipline. Explore the historical heart of Charlotte Amalie, or the tropical trails and white sands of laid-back St. John.
