Celebrity Cruises has announced that Celebrity Constellation will call Tampa, Florida home beginning in November 2020 and will sail new unique itineraries to the Caribbean.
Before moving to its new port, Celebrity Constellation will receive a bow-to-stern transformation as part of The Celebrity Revolution, Celebrity’s $500-million investment in fleet-wide upgrades. The upgrades are scheduled for May of next year.
“Our guests and travel advisors have been asking us to return to Tampa since our last call there in 2007,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “While Celebrity Cruises fleet is undergoing a massive modernization with The Celebrity Revolution, the beautiful City of Tampa is also experiencing quite a renaissance. How fitting for our evolving brand to return to an evolving city with a completely ‘revolutionized’ ship?”
After an initial 7-night Western Caribbean cruise, the enhanced Celebrity Constellation will begin offering guests more island time with three unique alternating 10- and 11-night itineraries for the winter 2020 season. In addition, a festive 12-night holiday cruise departs from Tampa on December 23 and features a transit of the Panama Canal and two days in Cartagena, Colombia.
The three unique Caribbean itineraries are:
10-night Eastern Caribbean Escape – Calling on San Juan, Puerto Rico; Basseterre, St. Kitts & Nevis; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Samana, Dominican Republic
11-night Southern Caribbean Trek – Visiting Key West, Florida; Kralendijk, Bonaire; Oranjestad, Aruba; Willemstad, Curacao; and George Town, Grand Cayman
11-night “Touch Canal” Cruise – Sailing to Cozumel, Mexico; Puerto Limon, Costa Rica; the Panama Canal; Colon, Panama; Cartagena, Colombia; and George Town, Grand Cayman
We are currently taking reservations for these new cruises to the Caribbean onboard the Celebrity Constellation.
In addition to Celebrity Constellation, five more Celebrity ships are set to receive enhancements between January 2020 and February 2023.
