Celebrity Cruises reveals plans for local 2021-22 summer sailings

Celebrity Cruises has just provided a sneak peek at its plans for local 2021-22 summer sailings featuring some banger Aussie, New Zealand and South Pacific trips.

Making her debut in local waters for the very first time, Celebrity Eclipse will set sail from 18 October 2021 through 17 April 2022 with 19 luxurious voyages featuring custom itinerary programming identified through market research and valuable travel partner feedback.

“Bringing the unique desires of the Australian and New Zealand guest to the forefront of our programming has allowed us to deliver on what our local market desires from a holiday experience and in turn, support our regional tourism market,” Tim Jones, regional vice president and managing director of Celebrity Cruises, said.

“The 21-22 Celebrity Eclipse season will be far from ordinary, truly bringing to life the amazing destinations we visit and we’re excited to release more information over the coming months.

“We’re an innovative brand by design, and this mindset has allowed us to really overdeliver with the experience on offer.”

And, because holidays should be effortless from the start, WiFi, drinks and service charges are now ‘Always Included’ on every Celebrity cruise, simplifying the luxury holiday experience.

Here’s a preview of what’s on offer:

Sun and beach escapes:

Clients can explore Australia’s stunning coastline and indulge in once-in-a-lifetime experiences, swim in the pristine blue waters of Fiji, and continue the island vibes on board with locally influenced dining and expertly-crafted cocktails.

Highlight experience: Sleep under the stars on a private pontoon floating above the Great Barrier Reef, including exclusive first light access to the reef.
