xperiences missed, deferred and cancelled... No more. Isn’t it time we started enjoying life like we used to? Isn’t it time we began spending quality time with friends and family? Isn’t it time we travelled, discovered and made life-long memories?

As part of the cruise operator’s ‘Isn’t It Time?’ campaign, Celebrity Cruises® is making such plans a reality. In 2022, the company, which has been named Best Cruise Line in Europe by the World Cruise Awards for 10 consecutive years, is cruising to more than 300 destinations on 15 state-of-the-art ships.

From the sun-kissed beaches of the Mediterranean to the dramatic vistas of Scandinavia and Russia, to the jaw-dropping wonder of the Norwegian Fjords, Celebrity Cruises® has an itinerary to suit you. There are even cruises that take in the castles and historic monuments of the British Isles.

As of 2022, Celebrity Cruises® is adding even more ports to its itineraries. From next year, chose to visit Molde and Haugesund in Norway, as well as Istanbul and Bordeaux. The line will also be launching a new Edge Class series ship, Celebrity BeyondSM. Debuting from Southampton in April 2022, Beyond will offer 9- and 10-night excursions during the spring and summer to destinations including Italy, France, the Greek Islands and Malta, with stop-offs in Santa Margherita, Nafplio and Florence.

Another ship, Celebrity ApexSM, will be venturing to Northern Europe for the first time – departing from Amsterdam and heading to Scandinavia, Russia, Iceland, Ireland, the British Isles and the Norwegian Fjords.

As part of the company’s ‘Isn’t It Time?’ campaign, Celebrity Cruises® is launching a series of special offers. Travellers booking between 1 October and 1 November can save up to 20% on voyages between 26 October 2021 and 31 December 2022*. This deal is combinable with the 2022 Airfare Savings Offer, which sees travellers enjoy fixed-rate airfares to Europe in 2022, with flights from £99 per person, and/or savings of £150 per person on flights to the Caribbean.

These deals can also be combined with Celebrity Cruises®’ 2022 Free Balcony Upgrades Offer; where passengers departing from Southampton on Celebrity Silhouette® between 21 April 2022 and 9 October 2022 can upgrade from ‘ocean view’ to ‘balcony’ rooms for free.

 

Elsewhere, Celebrity Cruises® has introduced a new ‘Cruise with Confidence’ policy, allowing customers to retain 100% future cruise credits if they cancel up to 48 hours in advance of sailing. Bookings must be made before 31 October 2021. For additional peace of mind, Healthy at Sea protocols are also in place – all cruise liners are operating at reduced capacity and can provide safe passage home by private air transfer if needed.
