Modern luxury vacationers love to explore new places, taste new flavors, and meet new people—then relax in well-appointed accommodations. If that sounds like you, Celebrity Cruises can open your world, with more than 300 destinations on all seven continents.
In the Caribbean, itineraries range from long-weekend escapes to seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean vacations to 14-night explorations with overnight stays. You’ll find coolly-sophisticated, warmly-inviting spaces on seven ships sailing from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and San Juan.
The newest ship in their fleet, Celebrity EdgeSM, begins sailing the Caribbean in December 2018. Her grand spaces include Eden, featuring three levels wrapped in glass facing out to the world; Rooftop Garden, a modern urban playscape with live entertainment, movies, and the Rooftop Grill; and the unique Magic Carpet, a one-of-a-kind venue that raises the bar—literally—on dining, lounging, and sightseeing by rising up the side of the ship to 13 stories above sea level.
Four Celebrity Solstice® Class ships explore the Caribbean, offering grass between your toes at the Lawn Club and private verandas with 85 percent of their staterooms. Two Celebrity Millennium® Class ships, each revitalized with an $8 million makeover, feature new Tuscan Grille steakhouses and new Rooftop Terraces.
Here are the Top 5 reasons to book a Caribbean escape with Celebrity:
1. Stunning accommodations
Creative architects and designers infuse Celebrity staterooms with the sexy style of boutique hotels. Most offer private verandas for al fresco dining, spectacular views, and romantic moments in the moonlight.
In Suite Class, guests live large. Celebrity is the only premium cruise line to lavish all suite guests with personal butlers, a private restaurant, Luminae, and an exclusive lounge, Michael’s Club. Every suite has it’s own luxurious character, but they all feature spacious living areas, floor-to-ceiling windows, and private verandas.
On Celebrity Edge, the innovations include revolutionary new suites. The opulent Iconic Suite features two bedrooms, 1,892 square feet of interior space, and a private outdoor terrace—perfect for entertaining. The two-story Edge Villas offer direct access to The Retreat, an exclusive sundeck and pool, which is available to every Suite Class guest on Celebrity Edge.
On any Celebrity ship, you can upgrade to an AquaClass® stateroom—a spa-inspired experience that keeps you close to the spa and gives you exclusive access to the specialty restaurant Blu. In a Concierge Class stateroom, you have a dedicated concierge who will take care of everything you need on your vacation, starting with priority check-in.
2. Inspired cuisine
With Celebrity, even the food transports you to new worlds. The menus are crafted by a Michelin-starred chef, and the meals are prepared on board using locally-sourced ingredients for globally-inspired flavors, aromas, and textures.
In the Caribbean, your favorite restaurants, bars, and lounges are likely to be right on board. Each offers up to 12 restaurants from casual to fine dining, including the impressive main restaurant.
Favorite spots include Murano featuring a contemporary take on classic French fare, Sushi On Five for traditional Japanese specialties, and the Lawn Club Grill, a celebration of barbecue overlooking the grass and sea.
No one ever goes thirsty on Celebrity. You can prepare for dinner with creative cocktails in several bars and lounges from the open-air Sunset Bar to the ice-topped Martini Bar—each with a unique vibe.

When it’s time to go ashore, knowledgeable destination concierges will help you arrange flawless experiences. In Suite Class, your own personal butler can help you unpack, arrange afternoon tea on the veranda, or almost anything you need to make your experience perfect.
4. Destination delivery
