Celebrity Cruises says that beginning 23 July, Celebrity will sail a program of seven-night itineraries roundtrip from Seattle on the beautifully appointed Celebrity Summit, which recently was part of a $500 million fleetwide ‘revolution’ described as to elevate every detail and refine every guest comfort on the ship.

Celebrity Summit will embark on a series of nine sailings through mid-September, and then reposition to the Caribbean, via a 16-night Panama Canal sailing, where she will begin a series of four- and five-night itineraries.

Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises said, “I just can’t say enough about how wonderful it is to return to Alaska. I have always had a special place in my heart for the incredible people, amazing wildlife and the beauty of this great state and once our guests visit, they do, too,” adding, “The Alaskan communities have been hurting without the economic support they receive from tourism, and especially, the cruise industry”, and “I am grateful to our elected officials across the country for recognising the need and finding a way to restore them to their livelihoods.”

Celebrity says its Alaska cruises take guests to the most unforgettable coastal destinations to marvel at the wildlife, wilderness and natural beauty of the Last Frontier, with sailing the line’s popular Alaska Dawes Glacier Cruise, the ship will visit some of Alaska’s most awe-inspiring destinations including:

Ketchikan –  Uniquely nestled at the southernmost entry to Alaska’s famous Inside Passage, it is the best spot for a flightseeing excursion of the Misty Fjords;

Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier – Sailing through this 30-mile-long stretch, guests are surrounded by granite cliffs, mountain valleys and dozens of gushing waterfalls before viewing the 600-feet-tall and half-mile wide Dawes Glacier. One of cruising’s must-experience highlights, the ship does a full turn here, providing views of this incredible feat of nature to guests on both sides of the ship;

Juneau  – This energetic capital city is home to Mendenhall Glacier and Mt. Roberts, and has more hiking trails than roads.

Skagway – once the heart of the Gold Rush, visitors can explore the Yukon on the White Pass Railway

All new 2021 Alaska sailings were open for booking on Wednesday, 26 May, 2021 and more information about the wonder awaiting on a Celebrity cruise through Alaska is available at celebritycruises.com/au/destinations/alaska-cruises

In addition, Wi-Fi, drinks and tips are now ‘Always IncludedSM on every Celebrity cruise, simplifying the luxury holiday experience.

Celebrity Summit is also now the sixth ship returning to service for Celebrity Cruises, with previously announced offerings from the new-luxury brand include:

Celebrity Millennium® leading the cruise industry’s Caribbean Comeback with seven-night itineraries from St. Maarten beginning June 5;

Celebrity ApexSM making her world debut in the Aegean, sailing the Greek Isles from Athens, Greece beginning June 19;

And three of the new-luxury  brand’s stunning ships sailing the breath-taking Galapagos Islands including the state-of-the-art mega yacht Celebrity Flora® beginning July 4; followed by the award-winning Celebrity Xpedition® and intimate 16-passenger Celebrity Xploration® on July 24, and September 18, respectively.

Celebrity Cruises says guests can expect to sail with a set of comprehensive measures and procedures developed in collaboration with the corporation’s Healthy Sail Panel, and in compliance with U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government authorities around the world, providing an uncompromised and relaxing holiday experience while focusing on prevention and mitigation to protect guests, crew and communities.
