Our 2023 Celebrate with the CEO sailing is here. Join Celebrity Cruises President and CEO, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, on June 23, for a journey into the wild frontier aboard Celebrity Solstice® . During your 7-night Alaska sailing, you’ll enjoy exclusive tours, special events, local entertainment and cuisine, surprises, and the chance to reconnect with fellow Captain’s Club members. We can’t wait to see you there.

The Wild Frontier

Alaska is so much more than its legends and myths. Boasting lively farmer’s markets, modern art galleries, and fine dining, 21st-century Alaska blends the old and the new, and urban life with the great outdoors in towns and cities surrounded by wilderness. Journey through the wild terrain of Alaska with our Alaska cruises and discover the natural wonders that await as the rugged beauty of this pristine frontier unfolds. Set out on an unforgettable adventure where you’ll get up close and personal with 30-ton whales, zip-line through the rainforest, or take flight high above the snow-capped lands and glaciers. In 2023, let Celebrity Solstice®, take you there on our Celebrate with the CEO Cruise.

Special Hosts

We’re going BIG in 2023! On the 2022 Celebrate with the CEO Cruise to the Greek Isles, Captain Dimitris Kafetzis joined Lisa in his home country to curate all our guest tours in Greece. We’re thrilled to share that we’ll be continuing the tradition! Captain Kate McCue, our American Captain, will join Lisa in Alaska to plan and host all the exclusive excursions and events both on and off the ship.

Past Celebrate with the CEO Cruises

Every Celebrate with the CEO Cruise has unique events, special gifts, hosted excursions, and more that can only be experienced on a Celebrate with the CEO cruise. In 2018 in India, we held a ship-wide extravaganza complete with a Bollywood Troupe performance to bring the destination on board. In 2019 in New Orleans, we watched the Mardi Gras Parade from front-row seats on Bourbon Street and brought an authentic jazz band back on board with us to continue to the party. In 2022, we lit up the night with a Santorini sail-away and enjoyed a private cooking class with a famous Mykonian chef. And this year is no exception! We’ve got plenty in store for you as we cruise the Inside Passage and Endicott Arms, experience the wilderness of Ketchikan, and the beauty of Skagway. Stay tuned for more details as they are announced!
