The luxury cruise line will launch Celebrity Infinity from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to the Eastern Caribbean islands on its first voyage in more than two years.
The ship will take guests on a seven-night tour of the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Dominican Republic.
The sailing also marks the full return to service of all 63 ships in parent company Royal Caribbean Group’s fleet, which coincides with the International Maritime Organization’s Day of the Seafarer. To celebrate, all ships in the fleet will sound their horns on Saturday to honor their crew.
The cruise line’s return to service began a year ago last June when Celebrity Edge became the first ship to depart from a US port in 15 months. Since then, Celebrity Cruises has gradually relaunched all of its ships to destinations around the world, from Europe and the Caribbean to Alaska and the Galapagos Islands.
“This sailing not only crowns an incredible voyage, but opens the door to a whole new world of endless possibilities for our brand and for cruise travel. The future is very bright, thanks to time, effort and love the team has put into bringing our entire fleet back,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, CEO of Celebrity Cruises.
“Seeing the magnificent Celebrity Infinity leave Florida will be a touching moment for everyone at Celebrity Cruises, especially for our crew, who have waited so long to welcome guests on board again,” she added.
After returning, Celebrity Infinity will embark on alternating seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, calling at Bimini or Nassau, the Bahamas and Key West.
Eastern Caribbean sailings will pass through Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, while Western Caribbean cruises will also stop in Belize and Cozumel in Mexico.
Until August 3, 2022, Celebrity is offering savings of up to £600 on cabin bookings as part of its Save and Sail offer.
