Celebrity Cruises sailing three ships in Alaska in 2019
Celebrity Eclipse will join sister ships Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Millennium during the northern hemisphere summer for the 2019 Alaska season. The ships’ range of itineraries will boast 13 destinations, with more than 40 extended port visits, bringing guests close to Alaska’s must-see wonders.
“With Celebrity Millennium emerging fresh from the Celebrity Revolution – the largest investment the brand has ever made to modernise our fleet – longer port visits, and one-of-kind cruise tour experiences, our 2019 Alaska season is shaping up to be the most impressive yet,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “Add to that the addition of Celebrity Eclipse and we have what promises to be an unrivalled season of unexpected splendour in the region.”
Celebrity Eclipse is the perfect complement to the majestic stretch of coastline that is the Pacific Coast. Sail round-trip from Los Angeles, from Los Angeles to Vancouver, or from San Diego to Vancouver, on an array of 7- to 9-night Pacific Coastal sailings.
Embark on round-trip sailings from Vancouver through the Inside Passage, visiting Ketchikan, Juneau, Hubbard Glacier and more. Guests can settle in with a cup of hot chocolate and a warm blanket at The Lawn Club or on their spacious, private verandah, and watch the awe-inspiring scenery unfold before them. These are whale-breaching, breathtaking modern luxury sailings previously only offered on Celebrity Infinity.
The 2019 Pacific Coastal season features 10 destinations, including Monterey, Santa Barbara, Catalina and more. Overnight stays in San Francisco mean guests can explore all the city’s must-sees, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Painted Ladies, head into the wine country and sample the best local vintages, and enjoy the legendary restaurant scene and nightlife.
Modern luxury travellers looking to venture farther into the vast expanse of the region can enjoy alternating open-jaw sailings out of Vancouver, British Columbia, or Seward, Alaska, aboard Celebrity Millennium.
Fresh from her multi-million-dollar revitalisation, part of the Celebrity Revolution, Celebrity Millennium returns to Alaska. Redesigned staterooms will make unwinding after a day of adventure easier than ever, and renovated public venues will complement the destinations guests will visit along this Seward-to-Vancouver (or vice versa) route.
Once again, Celebrity Solstice embarks from Seattle for a round-trip exploration that visits Victoria, Ketchikan, Skagway and Juneau, and traverses the incredible Tracy Arm Fjord.
Under the starry Alaskan night sky, guests can enjoy the iconic gastronomic adventure A Taste of Film, which pairs films that evoke a specific cultural, culinary or destination experience, with cuisine that brings the scenes on the screen to life through guests’ tastebuds.
Guests looking for a more in-depth encounter with Alaska are invited to embark on a Celebrity Alaska Cruisetour; pairing a modern luxury Alaska sailing with a guided land tour that takes them deep into the heart of Alaska, complete with luxury motor coaches, glass-domed trains, authentic lodging, and a knowledgeable, local tour director with them every step of the way. With 11 Alaska Cruisetours to choose from, ranging from 9 to 13 nights, Celebrity offers Alaskan adventures for every modern explorer.
Celebrity Canadian Rockies Cruisetour’s invite guests to journey into the heart of this majestic region. Embrace nostalgic flair with an overnight rail journey aboard VIA Rail’s train, The Canadian. The route between Jasper and Vancouver offers daylight views of the mountains, which guests can take in from the domed cars, parlour cars, and their own private cabin. Guests can choose from two different Canadian Rockies Cruisetour options ranging from 12 to 13 nights.
