Celebrity Cruises has announced that two more of its ships have returned to service. Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Constellation are setting sail from Fort Lauderdale and Tampa Bay, respectively. With these two ships, 10 of the 14 ships within Celebrity Cruises' fleet have now returned to sailing in 2021.
Celebrity Reflection began service on 06NOV, exactly 600 days after disembarking its last guest in Fort Lauderdale's Port Everglades prior to ceasing operations. Now, the ship is sailing a seven-night voyage from Fort Lauderdale, with stops in Bahamas, Mexico, Belize and Honduras. Celebrity Constellation set sail a day later on 07NOV from its new homeport in Tampa Bay with stops in Belize and Cozumel, Mexico.
Each ship will spend nearly six months exploring the Eastern and Western Caribbean before their transatlantic voyages to then embark on itineraries around Europe, including stops in Italy, Spain, Greece, and Croatia.
"The past year has been one of remarkable change, but we can definitely say the announcement of the return of these two marvelous ships is a change in the right direction as we invite our guests back on board," said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo.
"The experiences our guests will enjoy aboard these beautiful new-luxury ships will provide the healing power of travel that we have all been seeking."
Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Constellation join eight Celebrity ships that have already been part of the line's phased restart, including:
- Celebrity Apex, relocating from Greece in late OCT 2021 to now sail seven- to nine-night itineraries through spring 2022 in the Caribbean;
- Celebrity Edge, the first ship to sail from a U.S. Port on 26JUN, sailing a rotating schedule of Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Fort Lauderdale;
