Celebrity Cruises has announced a return of year-round sailing to the Caribbean with the Celebrity Equinox. The vessel will sail year-round from PortMiami on Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.

The 122,000 gross ton Celebrity Equinox will offer one-of-a-kind cruises with unique experiences for all types of guests. So let’s get into the details – The large ship will offer 24 sailings alternating between Eastern and Western Caribbean. The ship will also offer 7 exceptional itineraries during the 2017 season. All sailings will be from PortMiami, the cruise capital of the cruise industry.

Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises said:

“Our guests, first-time cruisers and our travel partners have been asking me for many years to offer year-round Caribbean cruises. They wished we offered these itineraries. Modern luxury, affluent vacationers have been looking for summer cruises in the Caribbean and we felt this was a significant opportunity in our offering.

So our new year-long sailings are perfect for discerning families and couples who want a summer getaway to sought-after tropical islands, with the best culinary experiences in the region and enriching activities for children and adults – all of which can only be offered by Celebrity. We are also adding new itineraries and sailings to create the most unforgettable vacations in the Caribbean; this is another example of what makes Celebrity so distinct and unique.”

“The response we have received so far to our year-round Caribbean sailings has been overwhelming, and we are excited to offer our guests endless summers in such a beautiful place.”
