Celebrity Cruises’ latest ship, Celebrity Equinox, departed for the Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale earlier this week. Celebrity restarted the North American cruise industry this summer on June 5 with Celebrity Millennium sailing the Caribbean from St. Maarten and quickly followed on June 26 with Celebrity Edge, the first ship to sail from a U.S. port in more than a year.
The recently refurbished Celebrity Equinox’s first sailing features a seven-night Western Caribbean itinerary visiting the ports of St. Maarten and St. Thomas, along with Nassau, Bahamas. She then rotates between Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.
Commenting, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President & CEO of Celebrity Cruises, said: “With each new ship that goes in the water, I’m overwhelmed by the palpable sense of reconnection on board for both our guests and our crew – with each other, their families and the world.
“Being together, again, and absorbing the beauty around us is what we’ve all dreamt about for over a year, and now it’s really wonderful to be a part of our guests’ aspirations to travel again.”
With today’s sailing, eight of the 14 ships within the Celebrity Cruises’ fleet have returned to sailing in 2021.
