Two More Celebrity Cruise Ships Enter Service

Celebrity Reflection embarked on a seven-night cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 6, exactly 600 days after the ship paused sailing operations in 2020. The Western Caribbean voyage will take passengers to the Bahamas, Mexico, Belize, and Honduras.

On November 7, Celebrity Constellation set sail from her new homeport of Tampa Bay, taking passengers on a five-night Western Caribbean sailing with stops in Belize and Cozumel, Mexico.

Both ships will spend the next six months taking passengers on Caribbean itineraries before making the transatlantic journey to Europe. The 2022 European sailings will visit some of Europe’s most enticing destinations, including stops in Italy, Spain, Greece, and Croatia.

“The past year has been one of remarkable change, but we can definitely say the announcement of the return of these two marvelous ships is a change in the right direction as we invite our guests back on board,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “The experiences our guests will enjoy aboard these beautiful new-luxury ships will provide the healing power of travel that we have all been seeking.”
