Year-round Miami, 6 ships in Europe, new Iceland, Japan routes for Celebrity Cruises

For the first time, Celebrity Cruises will sail year-round from PortMiami with Celebrity Beyond
Besides Celebrity Xcel's inaugural Caribbean season in 2025/26, Celebrity Cruises will field its first year-round Miami ship and new Iceland and Asia itineraries.

Six ships will be in Europe, and three in Alaska in summer 2025.


In summer 2025, three Celebrity ships will cruise the Caribbean, going up to nine in winter 2025/26, including four Edge vessels, from four Florida homeports.

For the first time, Celebrity will sail year-round from PortMiami, with Celebrity Beyond on weeklong cruises to the eastern Caribbean visiting Antigua, Tortola and the Bahamas. Almost every itinerary will call at Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Celebrity Ascent will sail 10- and 11-night itineraries to the Panama Canal and Southern Caribbean beaches of Antigua, Barbados and St. Lucia.  

Celebrity Apex will be the first Edge ship sailing from Port Canaveral (following Celebrity Equinox's debut there in winter 2024/25), and Celebrity Constellation returns to Tampa, both offering seven-night cruises to ports including Key West, Bimini, Puerto Rico, Cozumel and Belize.  

For the first time, Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Eclipse will sail from Port Everglades, with Silhouette on eight-night cruises to the 'ABC' islands, and Eclipse on eight-night and six-night trips to Dominica, Antigua and San Juan and Grand Cayman, Bahamas and Mexico, respectively. 

Six ships in Europe
