Celebrity Cruises moving to the Caribbean year round is in response to travel agents, past guests, and first time cruisers asking for cruise line to offer year round cruises to the most popular cruise destination in the world. Celebrity Equinox will sail from the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami.

Celebrity Cruises will offer 24 summer sailings on Celebrity Equinox that will alternate between the Eastern and Western Caribbean. As a prelude to summer, Celebrity Cruises is offering a special 11-night Signature Event sailing in the Caribbean that includes a double-overnight stay in New Orleans, La., coinciding with the city’s famous jazz festival.

The cruise line is celebrating their return to the Caribbean with a limited time offer of four free perks and qualifying upgrades on select 2017 Celebrity Equinox sailings. Book travel between July 19 and Aug. 31, 2016, and receive up to four signature perks including: $150 onboard credit, unlimited internet package, premium beverage package and prepaid gratuities, per person. The Endless Summer offer is valid on travel from April 24 through Nov. 6, 2017, with rates starting at $1,399 per person for Veranda Stateroom accommodations.

Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, gave the following statement regarding Celebrity returning to the Caribbean 12 months a year:

“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.”

2017 summer sailings to the Caribbean on Celebrity Equinox are currently open for bookings. Visit or contact your local travel professional.
