The new summer and winter program includes the debut Caribbean season for Celebrity’s fifth Edge Series ship, Celebrity Xcel, along with new ports in Europe, year-round offerings in the Caribbean, and new experiences in 29 cities with single and double overnights.

Through the land tours, guests stay in authentic lodges and travel remote roads and railways in deluxe motor coaches and on a train with domed glass ceiling. The tours offer guests the chance to experience Alaska’s diverse interior, including destinations like Anchorage, Talkeetna and Denali.
