Australia/New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand cruises are suspended until April 30. This means the company will miss the 2020/21 local summer cruise season, with the earlier cancellations of Celebrity Cruises' and Azamara's seasons Down Under


Otherwise, for Celebrity, all global sailings are suspended through Feb. 28, with South America cruises canceled through April 7, the full season there.
