Celebrity Cruises to the Caribbean
When it comes to cruising, the Caribbean is, hands down, the most popular destination in the world. For Celebrity, this is no exception, and the brand’s hybrid of luxury amenities for a contemporary-sized ship takes travelers to the three standard regions.
Traveling to the Caribbean
A variety of Celebrity cruise ships leave from multiple departure ports to stop at 35 total Caribbean ports, both on the islands and in Central and South America. Before you start exploring the beaches and scheduling private tours, consider where you’ll be departing from. Celebrity’s Caribbean-bound ships typically leave from Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, San Juan, and Cape Liberty in Bayonne, NJ. For a general guide, trips to all regions of the Caribbean leave from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, while certain southern itineraries depart from San Juan.
Where to Go, and What to Do
Intimate views of common Caribbean ports make Celebrity cruises a must for travelers. Yes, you’ll go to the Caymans, Jamaica, Cozmel, or Aruba like most cruisers, but how many can say they visited a hidden cove, sunbathed on a private beach, or went on a guided photography tour? Such experiences become exclusive to Celebrity Cruises, no matter the itinerary you select.
• Western: Such trips depart from Miami or Ft. Lauderdale and last at least four night. Depending on length, port itineraries typically encompass Key West, Cozumel, Georgetown, Jamaica, and Labadee. For those looking to travel between Christmas and New Year’s, Celebrity offers holiday cruises with this itinerary.
• Eastern: Ships typically depart from Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, or Cape Liberty. Itineraries may overlap with Western Caribbean cruises but go farther south. As a result, ports may include St. Bart’s, St. Croix, San Juan, Labadee, St. Maarten, and St. Thomas.
• Southern: With trips departing from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, or San Juan, these cruises almost always stop at the countries and islands making up the Netherlands Antilles and the Lesser Antilles. Itineraries vary, but there’s a chance you’ll get to experience the sights and culture of the following places: Aruba, Curacao, Grenada, Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and St. Kitts. Trips typically last 14 or more nights.
• Ultimate Caribbean Cruise: Who says the landscapes of the Caribbean and Central America, the history, cultures, and beaches can’t be experienced in a single cruise? This comprehensive tour of the Caribbean is unique to Celebrity, and if you can’t choose from one of the top three itineraries and have the time, why not do it all? Departing from Ft. Lauderdale, ships go around the perimeter to the Grand Cayman, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Belize, and Cozumel.
Many agree that Celebrity’s cruise excursions are second to none. So, as you plan a trip, consider what you’ll do once the ship arrives in port:
• Culinary excursions on each island
• Swimming with dolphins
• Tours of Old San Juan • Snorkeling
• Aerial tram tours to see the rainforest
• A helicopter ride over the Montserrat volcano
• Best sights tours
• Catamaran sail, snorkel, and beach cruises
• Swimming and snorkeling with stingrays
Close to home, accessible to many in the U.S., and a tour of flavors and culture, all by the region’s fine white sands and blue waters, make a Caribbean cruise the perfect vacation. And Celebrity’s onboard experience certainly makes it a must. To see what experiencing the Caribbean is all about, begin booking today with Direct Line Cruises.
