Celebrity Cruises is ready for its biggest Caribbean season yet, with more options for travelers to enjoy the tranquil blue waters and sunshine of the idyllic island region. Nine of Celebrity’s award-winning resorts at sea, the most ever in the Caribbean for the brand, will sail the region on itineraries ranging from new three-night short getaways to 12-night dream vacations giving travelers more options than ever before for escaping the winter blues. In addition, select sailings will call on the highly rated Perfect Day at CocoCay, providing access to this exclusive private island experience; and, in December, 2024, a Celebrity ship will sail from Port Canaveral for the first time ever. 

“As winter approaches, the Caribbean beckons with warm weather, tropical sea breezes and azure waters – an ideal cold weather escape. Our 2024 Caribbean season offers a wide range of ships and itineraries that include natural wonders, UNESCO sites, to hidden waterfalls and acloves,” said Laura Hodges Bethge, president, Celebrity Cruises. “The personal attention we provide our guests makes them feel cared for, and they return home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.”

Celebrity Ascent makes Caribbean debut

Celebrity Ascent, the fourth and newest ship in the brand’s award-winning Edge Series, made her highly anticipated maiden voyage on December 3, 2023. Now, departing from Ft.

While guests soak up her fantastic new features, she’ll transport them to some of the most sought-after destinations in the region including Philipsburg, St. Maarten, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, and Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. 

Celebrity Ascent will make round-trip sailings from Celebrity’s state-of-the-art Terminal 25 at Port Everglades every Sunday, journeying through the islands on seven-night Western and Eastern Caribbean itineraries. Eastern Caribbean sailings will visit bucket list worthy locales, including San Juan, Puerto Rico; Tortola in the British Virgin Islands and Basseterre, St. Kitts and Nevis, while Western Caribbean sailings will take guests to the breathtaking ports of Nassau, Bahamas; Cozumel, Mexico and George Town in the Cayman Islands.

Celebrity Ascent will be joined by her island-hopping Edge Series sisters, Celebrity Apex and Celebrity Beyond. Celebrity Apex is embarking on rotating seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries. Departing from Ft. Lauderdale, guests will visit the sun-filled islands of the Eastern Caribbean, including San Juan, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Puerto Plata. For a different kind of escape, Celebrity Apex will take guests to the Western Caribbean where they can surrender to the rhythms of paradise in Key West, Florida; Grand Cayman, and Belize.
