Celebrity Cruises has unveiled all-new Caribbean offerings for the winter 2024-2025 season onboard four stellar ships – Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Equinox and Celebrity Summit.

Embarking from three Florida ports – Port Canaveral, Port Tampa Bay and Port Everglades – travelers will enjoy more than 40 new itineraries.

“We are so excited to unveil this new program,” Laura Hodges Bethge, president of Celebrity Cruises, said in a news release. “It provides our guests with more options to experience the natural beauty of the Caribbean, which is elevated by our personalized experiences on board.”

Catering to the diverse needs of today’s consumer, the new program offers a wide range of experiences, from rejuvenating quick getaways to weekly seven-night cruises and up to nine-night escapes.

“As part of this expansion, we are thrilled to add Port Canaveral to our list of home ports,” Bethge said. “It is a perfect market to reach a wide mix of both in- and out-of-state travelers looking for fun in the Caribbean sun.”

Transporting guests to tropical hotspots from Belize and Bimini to Grand Cayman and San Juan, a select number of itineraries also offer the opportunity to visit Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Perfect Day at CocoCay

A vibrant private island paradise nestled in The Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay offers the best of beach-side bliss and sun-soaked excitement. With something for everyone, guests can enjoy miles of pristine white sand beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters, take a dip in the largest freshwater pool in The Bahamas and swim up to the bar for a refreshing tropical cocktail.

Plus, guests can experience the ultimate in relaxation and privacy at Coco Beach Club that features a heated infinity pool, specialty restaurant, 20 exclusive overwater cabanas and more.

Debuting in January 2024, Perfect Day at CocoCay will introduce Hideaway Beach, an adults-only paradise with private cabanas and a new signature food outlet.

“As one of Celebrity Cruises’ homeports, we are excited about the new sailings on Apex and Summit,” Port Everglades CEO and Port Director Jonathan Daniels said in a news release.

“In addition to the line’s ‘resort at sea’ experience, their cruise guests can expect to experience unrivalled customer service and ease of sailing at Port Everglades,” he said.

                                     Sailing Out of Port Canaveral

For the first time ever, Celebrity Cruises will sail out of Orlando’s Port Canaveral with 20 new itineraries from Nov. 21, 2024, to April 19, 2025, onboard the Celebrity Equinox. With most itineraries spanning seven nights, travelers will have the opportunity to visit highly sought-after Caribbean destinations like the Bahamas, Belize, Grand Cayman, Mexico, San Juan and St. Maarten.

Just in time for the spring break season, two sailings on March 1 and Mary 15, 2025, will visit Perfect Day at CocoCay.

“We are thrilled to welcome Celebrity Cruises as our new partner and honored to be part of their Caribbean expansion plans,” Capt. John Murray, Port Canaveral CEO, said in a news release.

“The demand for Celebrity Cruise sailings from our port has been growing,” he said. “Now, with Celebrity Equinox homeported here, there are great opportunities for even more cruise travelers to experience the cruise line’s high-quality experience while experiencing the comfort and ease of travel provided by our port.”

Refreshed Port Tampa Bay Cruises

Celebrity Cruises will revamp its current Caribbean program out of Port Tampa Bay with four new itineraries and a total of 14 sailings for the season from Jan. 2, 2025, to April 6, 2025.

These itineraries will visit destinations like Belize, Honduras, Key West, Mexico and New Orleans during Mardi Gras, scheduled for May 1, 2025.

“There has never been a better time to sail Celebrity Cruises from Port Tampa Bay,” Paul Anderson, Port Tampa Bay President and CEO, said in a news release.  “Celebrity Constellation is a beautiful ship that provides travelers with an unforgettable cruise experience, all the while being located just steps from Tampa’s top attractions.”
