If an Alaska cruise is on your bucket list, here’s why you should see it with Celebrity Cruises. With 9 itineraries, 8 destinations, and over 160 excursions, you can see Alaska’s stunning beauty in luxury – your way. From the wildlife in the Inside Passage and the historic Icy Strait Point to the Hubbard Glacier, Alaska’s capital of Juneau to the “Salmon Capital of the World,” Ketchikan, there’s so much to see that you’re sure to have an extraordinary vacation. Here are 8 reasons to choose Celebrity Cruises.


Three ships to choose from

The Celebrity Solstice®, Celebrity Millennium® and Celebrity Infinity® all travel to Alaska to bring you to the must-see sights and scenery. Millennium had a massive multi-million dollar refurbishment in 2019, with enhanced features from Celebrity’s Edge-class ships is an essence of modern luxury. The Infinity has undergone $9M in luxury makeovers in 2015 while the Solstice is known for having 85% of its staterooms equipped with spacious verandas so you can soak up the stunning views every single morning.


Three ports to choose from

You can discover Alaska from three ports depending on what is more convenient and cost-effective for you: Seattle, Washington; Seward, Alaska and Vancouver, British Columbia. Plus, you can extend your stay in either of these cities with the help of a tripcentral.ca travel agent to make your vacation even more memorable.


Combine your cruise with land tours
