Celebrity Cruises Announces New Bookings for Alaska and Australia

#Traveltradetogether

Today, Celebrity Cruises opens bookings for NEW itineraries for Alaska and Australia for the 2025-2026 season. The recently announced Summer and Winter programme for the premium cruise line’s fleet of 17 award-winning ships includes the return of Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Summit to the glacier waters of Alaska. And later for her Winter season, Celebrity Edge will sail down under and immerse guests in the iconic sights of Australia and New Zealand.

Alaska, The Last Frontier

Alaska shines as the ultimate destination for nature enthusiasts. Whether adventure-seeking travellers are interested in exploring glaciers, encountering wildlife, or discovering remote wilderness, an Alaskan voyage promises an unforgettable adventure.

Returning for her second summer season, Celebrity is offering guests the opportunity to see the best of Alaska on the line’s most popular ship in the region, the award-winning Celebrity Edge. Her unique outward-facing design allows guests to get closer to nature and sail through the region’s rugged coastline and majestic glaciers, with some of the best views from the iconic Magic Carpet.

Celebrity will have three ships in Alaska for the 2025-26 season, as Edge is joined in the region by Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Summit. For travellers looking to voyage the adventurous Inside Passage, Celebrity is offering two roundtrip options, with Solstice departing from Vancouver and Edge departing from Seattle.

For those looking to make the most of the waters and shores of Alaska, guests travelling on Celebrity Summit will have the option to add on a 2-6-Night pre/post land tour of the region with a CruiseTour experience. Few people know and love Alaska like those who live there, and the Celebrity Tour Directors are chosen for their deep roots and connections to the local communities. Guests will stay in authentic lodges and travel remote roads and railways in deluxe motor coaches and on a luxurious train with a domed glass ceiling. The tours offer guests the chance to experience Alaska’s diverse and beautiful interior, including destinations like Anchorage, folksy Talkeetna, and wild Denali. Plus, all CruiseTours will include a journey on the iconic Wilderness Express Railway to allow guests to soak in all the scenic beauty.

Australia and New Zealand:

Back again for another year, Celebrity Edge returns to Australia and New Zealand for Winter with iconic sailings through Sydney Harbour or the majestic Fjords of New Zealand; filled with cultural enrichment, majestic landscapes, and historical significance.

Celebrity is offering travellers the option between three departure ports: Sydney, Australia, Auckland, New Zealand and Honolulu, Hawaii where guests will embark on the trip and journey of a lifetime. The brand is offering itineraries to suit all needs, from an 11-Night Great Barrier Reef sailing perfect for those looking to experience the great outdoors to an 18-Night Tahitian Treasures sailing for those looking to bask in all the culture and bliss the region has to offer.

Itinerary highlights include a huge variety of convenient round-trip sailings from Sydney Harbour offering incredible views of the iconic Sydney Bridge and Opera House. For guests wanting to make the most of one of the seven natural wonders of the world, overnight stays are available at The Great Barrier Reef so travellers can spend time below the surface diving or snorkelling through the incredible coral reef.

For those who want it all, New Zealand is a must-see region of beautiful scenery, majestic fjords, fine wine, friendly people, and exotic wildlife. Celebrity is offering 11-13-Night immersive itineraries, giving guests the opportunity to glide through the otherworldly Milford, Dusky, and Doubtful Sounds to soak up stunning scenery from the water. This region offers newness, tradition, and sublime scenery; plus with its opposite seasons, it’s the perfect place for those from the Northern Hemisphere to escape the winter blues.
