Good news for cruise lovers! Celebrity Cruises, the pioneering cruise line renowned for offering resort experiences at sea, recently announced an ambitious Caribbean expansion for the Winter 2024-2025 season. Featuring four stunning ships and three departure ports in Florida, the company is all set to dazzle cruisers with over 40 new itineraries. From quick getaways to immersive 9-night escapes, there’s something for everyone. Let’s unpack what this means for UK travellers eager for some Caribbean sun.

Expanded Cruises From Port Everglades: Perfect Days Ahead

If you’ve been dreaming about the pristine beaches and turquoise waters of the Caribbean, Celebrity Apex and Celebrity Summit are set to sail from South Florida’s Port Everglades. Between October 2024 and March 2025, these ships will offer routes that include sought-after destinations like St. Maarten, San Juan, and Grand Cayman.

One of the most intriguing highlights is the Perfect Day at CocoCay. This private island paradise in The Bahamas offers white-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, and an array of amenities, including the Bahamas’ largest freshwater pool. Starting January 2024, the island will also feature an adults-only area, Hideaway Beach, perfect for travellers looking to escape the usual family buzz.

Celebrity Equinox Debuts at Port Canaveral

For the first time ever, Celebrity Equinox will set sail from Port Canaveral, located near Orlando. This offers a convenient starting point for UK travellers who might want to incorporate a visit to Disney World or Universal Studios before or after their cruise. From November 2024 through to April 2025, the Celebrity Equinox will provide a plethora of 7-night itineraries covering ‘must-see’ spots like the Bahamas, Belize, and St. Maarten.

More Frequencies From Port Tampa Bay

Located on the west coast of Florida, Port Tampa Bay will host the Celebrity Constellation for an enhanced series of 6- to 7-night itineraries. The new cruises, available from January to April 2025, will take guests to exotic locations such as Belize, Honduras, and even New Orleans during Mardi Gras! A great option for those who are looking to experience the vibrant cultures of Central America and the southern United States.

Why UK Travellers Should Be Excited

The new itineraries cater to a wide range of travel tastes. Whether you’re a family looking for fun-filled adventure, a couple seeking romantic seclusion, or solo travellers eager to explore, there’s an option for you.

The Caribbean has always been a popular destination for UK travellers, offering a warm escape from the UK’s winter months. And with Florida’s well-connected airports, getting there has never been easier.

Booking and Availability

Open for booking since August 22, 2023, these exciting itineraries are expected to be in high demand. Given the gloomy travel prospects we’ve had in the last couple of years, now could be the ideal time to plan your dream Caribbean cruise.
