Celebrity Cruises Solstice Sailing Caribbean In 2010

Celebrity Cruises’ will be moving the new Celebrity Solstice to the Caribbean for 2010-2011 on a year round basis. This should go a long way in modernizing the Celebrity efforts in the Caribbean, and increase onboard revenues in an area that will definitely be price challenged in the next few years with all the inventory in the three Caribbean regions. It also eliminates a high number of empty berths in the European market week in and week out.

“The extraordinary response from our guests to Celebrity Solstice has created a corresponding demand for the ship to sail year-round in the Caribbean, and we’re thrilled to meet that demand,” said Celebrity’s President & CEO Dan Hanrahan. “This move offers guests in North America a phenomenal closer-to-home vacation option whenever they’re ready to get away, and similarly, our international guests now will have year-round Caribbean vacation options with Celebrity that are second-to-none.”

The dazzling Celebrity Solstice will sail alternating seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in summer months, and seven-night Eastern Caribbean itineraries from the same port in the winter, marking the first time since 2004 that Celebrity has offered a year-round seven-night sailing in the Caribbean. Celebrity Solstice will be one of two Celebrity vessels sailing continuously in the region; Celebrity Century, as previously announced, will present short getaways, with its popular four- and five-night sailings from the Port of Miami.
