Celebrity announces Cruise With Confidence Program
Celebrity Cruises Announces Extension to Cruise With Confidence Program and Assurances for Travel Partners
Celebrity Cruises has announced the extension of its Cruise With Confidence program in light of the recent Royal Caribbean Group announcement that global operations will be suspended for all sailings departing on or before 31 May, 2021.
Applicable through to 31 May, 2021, the Cruise With Confidence program provides Celebrity Cruises’ guests with the flexibility to cancel sailings up to 48 hours prior — without penalty — as well as a best offer guarantee.
Celebrity Cruises recognises the work of its valued travel partners through this challenging time. This is reflected in Celebrity Cruises’ decision to ensure that agents are fairly compensated for their work. It will protect agent commission earnings on both cancelled or paid in full reservations, the future booking where the correlating Future Cruise Credit is redeemed, as well as any booking rescheduled for the following year.

CELEBRITY GOES TO GALAPAGOS
Celebrity Cruises Announces Galapagos Sailings for 2023, Giving Guests the Chance to Explore This One-of-a-Kind Destination in Ultimate Luxury
Celebrity Cruises has announced its 2023 sailings around the stunning Galapagos Islands - perfect for those looking to plan a holiday that’s on every world traveller’s “must see” list.
From New Year’s Eve 2022, the new luxury travel brand will offer six unique, in-depth itineraries that are meticulously designed to ensure travellers experience the best of the islands on every sailing.
Guests will also be able to choose from three stunning ships — the luxurious, state-of-the-art mega-yacht, Celebrity Flora, the award-winning Celebrity Xpedition, and the intimate 16-passenger Celebrity Xploration.
For those looking to explore the Galapagos’ spectacular wonders in ultimate luxury, Celebrity Flora®, a mega-yacht built specifically to navigate the waters of this natural paradise, is ideal. Inspired by the islands and built with natural materials and the latest environmental technologies, the ship merges seamlessly with the surroundings. And, to fully immerse travellers in this extraordinary landscape, certified naturalists from the Galapagos National Park are on board to guide the journey.
In 2023, Celebrity Flora® will offer two unforgettable sailings around the Galapagos: Outer Loop and Inner Loop itineraries. On either itinerary, guests will spot exotic wildlife, walk on volcanic islands and black-sand beaches, and witness some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.
Meanwhile, Celebrity Xpedition® and Celebrity Xploration® will both explore the equally beautiful 7-Night Galapagos Northern Loop and 7-Night Galapagos Southern Loop. In this extraordinary destination, every island offers its own unique experiences, from hiking otherworldly volcanic landscapes to snorkelling alongside sea turtles in their natural habitat.
What’s more, vacations to the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity Cruises are all inclusive, meaning guests won’t have to spend a single minute thinking about logistics and details. Alongside twice-daily shore excursions guided by Galapagos National Park certified naturalists, locally-sourced cuisine from menus crafted by a Michelin-starred chef, drinks, unlimited Wifi, luxury hotel stays and flights between Ecuador and the islands, everything has been thought of - even any equipment needed, like snorkelling apparatus, wetsuits, binoculars, and more is included.
Across all sailings, Celebrity Cruises also offers comprehensive 10-to-16-night holiday packages, adding even more bucket-list adventures into one holiday from the history and culture of Quito, to the charm and beauty of Lima, and the ancient allure of Machu Picchu, the legendary Inca citadel perched high up in the Andes.
