“Our 2025-2026 season is filled with opportunities to experience multiple countries through our Caribbean and European programs, visit bucket list destinations with sailings like our immersive Japan program and more. Celebrity’s future vacation options are endless.”
Diversity in Europe
During 2025 and 2026, Celebrity Cruises will feature seven ships from different homeports for passengers to immerse themselves in the culture, history, art, scenery, and culinary distinctiveness of Europe.
Celebrity Apex will return for another season from Southampton, offering Arctic Circle and Norwegian fjord itineraries for cool getaways, while her sister Edge-class ship, Celebrity Ascent, will offer classic Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona and Rome.
Celebrity Equinox will also be sailing in the Mediterranean, with itineraries lining up with Celebrity Ascent for back-to-back options for even longer, more engaging itineraries, including the Italian Riviera, Greek Isles, France, Spain, Portugal, Montenegro, and more.
Of special note will be the mini-season of special offerings onboard Celebrity Silhouette in July and August 2025. Just four 7-night cruises will set sail from Reykjavik and circumnavigate Iceland, cruising alongside breathtaking scenery and visiting a new port of call, Djúpivogur, with its famous black sand beaches.
Celebrity Eclipse will be sailing from Amsterdam and offering northern European and Scandinavian itineraries, while Celebrity Infinity and Celebrity Constellation will offer Greece, Turkey, and Italian itineraries, including Holy Land options in the winter season of 2026.

For travelers interested in tropical destinations, nine Celebrity Cruises ships will be sailing from four Florida homeports in the popular winter 2025-2026 season, followed by three ships during the summer months for relaxing getaways.
Of particular note will be Celebrity Xcel making her Caribbean debut in November 2025 with 7-night sailings from Fort Lauderdale, including stops in the Bahamas, Mexico, the Virgin Islands, and other top Caribbean ports.
Celebrity Beyond will be the first Celebrity ship ever to sail year-round from Miami, with 7-night class Eastern Caribbean itineraries. Meanwhile, Celebrity Ascent will offer longer 10- and 11-night options, including Panama Canal and Southern Caribbean sailings.
Western Caribbean destinations are not forgotten, as Celebrity Apex will be the first Edge-class ship to sail from Port Canaveral and Celebrity Constellation will be returning to Tampa, both offering 7-night cruises to Key West, Puerto Rico, Cozumel, and Belize.
Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Eclipse will also offer 6- and 8-night Caribbean cruises from Fort Lauderdale, with Southern, Eastern, and Western Caribbean itineraries all on offer.
Finally, for guests who may not have as much time or just want a quicker getaway, Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Summit are poised to offer 3- and 4-night itineraries featuring visits to Perfect Day at CocoCay.
Caribbean sailings will open first on December 5, 2023, while later voyages will open for booking in February 2024.
