New ports, more overnight stays and the first Solstice-class ship in Asia feature in Celebrity Cruises’ 2020-21 program.

The 14-strong fleet, including Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Apex, will visit more than 280 destinations in nearly 75 countries and all seven continents.

Maiden calls

New destinations for Celebrity include Taranto, Italy; Salvador de Bahia, Brazil; Ilocos, Philippines; Ishigaki, Japan; Zakynthos, Hydra and Thessaloniki, Greece; and the Kenai Peninsula in Homer, Alaska, the highlight of new cruise-tour debuting in 2021.

Overnight stays

More than 125 overnight stays in over 30 destinations include a new overnight in Porto, Portugal, and the chance to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Montevideo, Uruguay.

‘Not only are we sailing to exciting new places, but we’re introducing stunning new spaces across more of our award-winning fleet as the “Celebrity Revolution” reaches its peak, marking the first time guests will be able to sail to all the regions we visit on “revolutionized” ships,’ President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said.

Celebrity Solstice to Asia

The newly modernized Celebrity Solstice will become the first ship in the Solstice series to sail Asia. Celebrity Eclipse will return to the Last Frontier for the first time since its ‘revolutionary’ transformation, and Celebrity Infinity will sail its first Mediterranean season since being transformed from bow to stern.

Celebrity Millennium is also charting a new course for the Caribbean, offering two new itineraries, a 10-night Eastern Caribbean cruise and a four-night weekend escape calling Key West and Nassau.

10% off pre-cruise purchases

Starting now through Dec. 31, travelers who book a sailing between April 30, 2021, and April 30, 2022, will get 10% off pre-cruise purchases for shore excursions, Xcelerate Wi-Fi packages, both classic and premium beverage packages, specialty dining and more.
