Celebrity Cruises has announced the launch of its 2015 “All-Included” Caribbean cruise vacations, featuring four new Canadian departure cities following the success of the program from Hamilton, Ont. and Ottawa this year.
Non-stop vacations from London, Ont., Quebec City, Que., Moncton, N.B., and Halifax are scheduled to set sail weekly from Feb. 7 to April 12.
Celebrity has also expanded guests’ options from the Saturday departure introduced in 2014 from Hamilton and Ottawa by adding a second departure on Sunday with an alternative itinerary.
“Canadians have long been big fans of inclusive travel and non-stop flights,” said Ken Brooks, director of sales, Celebrity Cruises Canada. “Celebrity is groundbreaking in bringing the enjoyment of all-included cruising and non-stop flights from exclusive departure cities across the country.”
Fights depart from Halifax, Hamilton and Ottawa on Saturdays with sailings aboard Celebrity Reflection.
Guests have the choice of an Eastern Caribbean cruise or Western Caribbean cruise, which is offered on Feb. 28, March 14 and 28.
Sunday departures from Moncton, London, Quebec City, Hamilton and Ottawa sail aboard the Celebrity Silhouette and enjoy the option of an Eastern or Western Caribbean cruise with itineraries offered on alternate weeks.
Packages include non-stop flights, ground transfers, unlimited drinks and covered gratuities, as well as the seven-night cruise.
Guests sailing through the Eastern Caribbean will visit St. Thomas (or St. Kitts),
St. Maarten and San Juan and those sailing through the Western Caribbean will experience the waters of Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Jamaica and Labadee.
Partner Canadian North provides non-stop flights to Florida departing from local airports, an option which was not available to travellers until last year. Flights are complete with hot meals, cocktails, headsets and up to two checked bags.
Celebrity’s “All Included” packages start from $1,999 per person, based on double occupancy, in a veranda stateroom on the Celebrity Silhouette.
