Celebrity Cruises will be entering the Caribbean market from Summer 2017 by offering all year round sailings with Celebrity Equinox based from Miami.
Celebrity Equinox will embark on a mixture of both eastern and western Caribbean itineraries.
Speaking in a statement released by Celebrity Cruises, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises was excited at the prospect of having a Celebrity ship based in the Caribbean all year round.
“Our guests, first-time cruisers and our travel partners have been asking me for many years to offer year-round Caribbean cruises. They wished we offered these itineraries,” Modern luxury, affluent vacationers have been looking for summer cruises in the Caribbean and we felt this was a significant opportunity in our offering. So our new year-long sailings are perfect for discerning families and couples who want a summer getaway to sought-after tropical islands, with the best culinary experiences in the region and enriching activities for children and adults – all of which can only be offered by Celebrity. We are also adding new itineraries and sailings to create the most unforgettable vacations in the Caribbean; this is another example of what makes Celebrity so distinct and unique.” The response we have received so far to our year-round Caribbean sailings has been overwhelming, and we are excited to offer our guests endless summers in such a beautiful place.”
With Celebrity Equinox being redeployed, the European fleet for Celebrity now stands at four for 2017. These are: Celebrity Reflection, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Eclipse and Celebrity Silhouette.
