Celebrity Cruises’ 2024/25 itineraries will feature new ports in Asia and Fiji, the first Edge-class ship in Alaska, year-round deployments in Europe, and its largest-ever Caribbean deployment.
“For our 2024/2025 season, we wanted to take our offerings to new heights – all in celebration of our fourth Edge Series ship, Celebrity Ascent, sailings its inaugural season in 2024,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises.
Among the highlights of Celebrity’s 2024/25 deployments will be the inaugural European season for Celebrity Ascent. The ship, which debuts in late 2023, will sail from Barcelona and Rome to ports in Spain, France, Italy and Greece.
The fully revolutionized Celebrity Millennium will kick off its Asia season in summer 2024 with a homeport in Tokyo from April 2024 to October 2024. Millennium alongside Celebrity Solstice will then transport guests to some of Southeast Asia’s most iconic destinations including new ports Hanoi (Vietnam), Bangkok and Phuket (Thailand), Penang (Malaysia), Bali (Indonesia), and Mumbai (India).
New ports will also be on Celebrity’s 2024 itineraries visiting Fiji including new stops in Samoa, Fiji Islands, American Samoa and Tonga.
Celebrity Edge to Alaska
For the first time, one of Celebrity’s popular Edge’-class ships will head to Alaska. The first in the series, Celebrity Edge, will sail seven-night cruises from Seattle with stops in Victoria and Ketchikan and sightseeing at Endicott Arm Fjord and Dawes Glacier.
Largest Caribbean Season
For the 2024/25 season, a total of eight Celebrity ships, including three Edge-class ships, will sail to the Caribbean. Itineraries will range from three-night weekend sailings to 12-night voyages. Highlights include Celebrity Ascent’s inaugural Caribbean season with rotating seven-night Western and Eastern Caribbean sailings.
Year-round sailings in Europe will be on offer in 2024, with more than 40 different itineraries, along with overnights in 11 of the world’s most popular cities including Lisbon, Istanbul and Reykjavik. Itineraries will also feature several new ports of call for Celebrity including Pauillac (Bordeaux), France; Brindisi and Trieste, Italy; and Kavala and Volos, Greece.
Another first for the line will be the first Edge-class ship to homeport outside of London, with Celebrity Apex hosting more Norwegian Fjord sailings than the line has ever offered before, including a new 12-night Norwegian Fjord and Arctic Circle itinerary.
