Just as Crystal Cruises recently announced cruises sailing directly from The Bahamas, Celebrity Cruises is following suit by figuring out a way to bypass the CDC. Today, Celebrity Cruises announced a new homeport in St. Maarten.
The Celebrity Millennium ship will begin sailing 7-night Caribbean voyages out of St. Maarten beginning in June. Itineraries go on sale March 25, 2021.
All crew will be vaccinated. Passengers 18 and older are required to be vaccinated. Children 17 and under do not have to be vaccinated but instead must show a negative PCR test prior to sailing. St. Maarten also requires a negative PCR test from all guests prior to arrival.
The 7-night sailings stop at Aruba, Curacao and Barbados or Tortola, St. Lucia and Barbados. Prices start at $1999 per person. See the full press release here.
I’m not surprised at this news, and I think we may see more of this foreign home-porting from other lines. I am excited to see that Celebrity is allowing unvaccinated children to board, and I hope that Royal and Disney Cruise Line have similar policies when they re-start.
Anyone tempted to book one of these cruises on Celebrity?
