It’s been 930 days but Celebrity Cruises have returned to Australia.
Celebrity Eclipse sailed from Sydney yesterday on a 12-night cruise through beautiful New Zealand, with stops in Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland, and more. This is the first of 17 cruises she will be sailing down under.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, says the return of the Eclipse is a new beginning following the pandemic.
“The return Down Under has been long-awaited but someday has finally arrived! Returning to this region is another significant milestone in the industry’s global recovery as we sail forward into a bright future.”
Passengers will have the opportunity to explore Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Cairns, and Hobart along with stunning beaches and exotic wildlife in the region.
This also means the return of the popular South Pacific exploration of the Fijian Islands, with stops in Suva and Lautoka, Fiji, Pago Pago, American Samoa, Apia, Western Samoa, and Nuku’alofa, Tonga.
Celebrity Eclipse’s season will end in April and she will make her way to Hawaii and Vancouver to begin cruising Alaska.
Next year, December 2023, Australians will be given the opportunity to sail Celebrity Edge, one of Celebrity’s newest ships, as she will be based in Sydney for the winter.
