Celebrity Cruises® is always looking toward the horizon and building off a strong 2019 when the company took home awards for “Best Premium Ship” and “Cruise Line of the Year,” the cruise line is proud to offer guests continued excellence in 2020 and 2021. Whether you want to marvel at lofty fjords, relax on serene tropical beaches or explore vibrant cities humming with culture, Celebrity Cruises’ considerable selection of ports-of-call in their top three destinations can make your dreams come true.  


If towering snow-capped peaks, crisp clean air and unending forests speak to your soul (as is the case for most Pacific Northwesterners), an odyssey to The Last Frontier will be the experience of a lifetime. With all of Celebrity’s onboard amenities, including luxurious staterooms, fine dining, and fitness and entertainment offerings, vacationing in the wild north doesn’t mean sacrificing modern comforts.

Aboard Celebrity Solstice®, the first of its class to navigate the scenic Alaskan waters, guests can depart Seattle for a seven-night round-trip sailing with stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway. On the water, wildlife encounters with soaring bald eagles and breaching humpback whales abound, while on land you’ll have up to 11 hours to enjoy most of the ports however you see fit. Shopping the wares of Alaska Natives artisans or indulging in vibrant local cuisine (salmon, anyone?) are great places to start. The truly jaw-dropping spectacle begins at the far reach of Endicott Arm, where the experienced crew provides passengers sweeping views of the impressive Dawes Glacier and its icy march out of the mountains. A similar weeklong, out-and-back trip embarks from Vancouver, B.C. on Celebrity Eclipse®, cruising the Inside Passage on the way to magnificent Hubbard Glacier.

The one-way Northbound and Southbound Glacier itineraries, running between Seward and Vancouver on Celebrity Millennium®, allow travelers to journey even farther north on their Alaska adventure. These sailings also offer the opportunity to experience a Celebrity Cruisetour that offers both cruise and land adventures in one vacation, which is an excellent way to kick off (or end) a trek to Anchorage, Denali National Park and beyond.  


When Portland gets dreary, the dazzling, sun-drenched islands of the Caribbean remain a balmy paradise. Winter, or any seasonal cruises aboard one of the seven Celebrity Cruise ships that navigate these warmer waters are the perfect way to catch up on vitamin D—either on deck or at the beach. A change of scenery is guaranteed as 34 destinations across 23 countries are available, with shore excursions across all itineraries. In Mexico, delve into the ancient ruins of Costa Maya or snorkel Cozumel’s vivid coral reefs. Sip rum at the source on Grand Cayman, gaze at the Colonial architecture of Curacao, sample the seafood in Barbados, and use the sea days in between to recharge.

Sixteen overnight stays in three unique destinations—Cartagena, Colombia; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Oranjestad, Aruba—are the most Celebrity Cruises has ever offered, ensuring you will have plenty of opportunities to bask in the glow of incredible sunsets. Sailing as a couple, a family, or even solo, there’s something for everyone to create priceless stories.


The European continent is a beautifully varied tapestry of landscapes, climates, and people just waiting to be discovered aboard Celebrity Cruises’ fleet, which includes Celebrity’s newest ship premiering April 2020—Celebrity Apex℠—along with Celebrity Edge®, Celebrity Reflection®, Celebrity Infinity®, Celebrity Silhouette® and Celebrity Constellation®. Travelers have three regions, 90 ports of call, and 27 different countries to choose from, each with its own history and culture.

Northern Europe is more than just higher latitudes and cooler temperatures, and itineraries in Scandinavia, Russia, the British Isles, and Iceland unlock a whole new world. See the opulent palaces of St. Petersburg and masterpieces in its Hermitage museum up close, soak in Reykjavik’s Blue Lagoon, kiss the Blarney Stone in Cork, or savor a glass of scotch in Glasgow.

Iconic Old World sights come to life during Western Mediterranean cruises. Stand in awe beneath the vaulted ceilings of Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia, whose architectural wonders have been under construction for more than 140 years. The Tuscan Countryside and its world-renowned food and vino will delight the senses. On the other side, Eastern Mediterranean destinations such as Venice and Mykonos are infused with romance and intrigue around every corner. Perhaps less familiar but equally alluring are stops in Croatia, Montenegro, and Slovenia as dramatic vistas and rustic charm can be found everywhere.

Celebrity Cruises offers additional exotic cruises to locales in South America, Asia, Australia and more. For more information on departure dates, amenities and itineraries, plus the limited time Sail Beyond offer, visit celebritycruises.com or contact your travel advisor.
