The Call of the Caribbean

Celebrity Cruises is making island hopping in paradise better than ever.

Celebrity Cruises® has revamped their Caribbean sailings to be better than ever. With new ships, new itineraries, and new access to private islands, there’s a whole lot of unseen experiences even for the most seasoned Celebrity cruiser. So, what are you waiting for? Grab the family, pack your bags, and set sail!

New Ships

First and foremost, Celebrity Cruises has quite a few of its tried-and-true ships hanging out in the Caribbean for the foreseeable future. Guests will get to enjoy all of these vessels’ beloved features (augmented reality dining at Le Petit Chef or picture-perfect Lawn Clubs, anyone?) while taking guests to whole new ports.

That said, Celebrity Cruises also debuted a new vessel in the Caribbean in Fall 2023: say hello to Celebrity AscentSM. As part of the Celebrity Edge Series, the Celebrity Ascent includes all of the coolest modern features, including The Retreat, the exclusive family-friendly two-story villa rooms, and the elevator-like Magic Carpet element. But Celebrity Ascent also has quite a few finds that are specifically unique to it. Be sure to watch the never-before-seen Broadway-esque evening performances and dine on the tastiest culinary innovations on your fabulous Celebrity cruise.

New Itineraries

The new ships are just the beginning of the new and improved Celebrity Caribbean experience. There’s also a whole new set of itineraries, starting with the departure ports. More cruises than ever are setting sail from Port Canaveral, Florida; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Tampa, Florida, making it as easy as possible for U.S. cruisers to set sail.

Even better, these itineraries – specifically the ones on Celebrity BeyondSM and Celebrity Reflection® – will take place all year round! So now you and your family can soak up the beauty of the Caribbean while escaping the cold winter weather or just enjoying a good ol’ summer getaway.

New Private Islands

For the first time ever, Celebrity Cruises is taking you to one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive destinations, Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s award-winning private island destination. This gorgeous little slice of paradise has everything you and your family could ever want from a private island.

If you’re looking for a hit of adrenaline, the island’s Thrill Waterpark is where you’ll want to go. There, you can go with the flow in the Caribbean’s largest wave pool, brave one of the heart-racing drop slides, or race down the tallest slide in North America. If you’d prefer to simply sit back, relax, and recharge, you’ve got a few different options. Book yourself a private cabana at Chill Island, soak up the sun at South Beach, or go for a serene swim at Coco Beach Club. Either way, it sounds like an incredible family vacation!

Once you’re ready to refuel, Perfect Day at CocoCay will be ready for you! With three restaurants and triple the number of bars, you’ll have lots of options. Devour the complimentary tacos from Skipper’s Grill, bite into a flavorful burger from the Chill Grill, or get yourself a tropical cocktail from the Wacky Seagull Bar.
