Celebrity Cruises Offers “PERFECT” Caribbean Steal Caribbean-focused promotion

Newspapers

Miami – (October 27, 2009 ) – Top-rated premium brand Celebrity Cruises launched a new promotion yesterday, featuring a variety of discounts and other offers for those seeking the “perfect” blend of sun, service and sophisticated cuisine. Offering low per-person-per-day rates, free and discounted stateroom upgrades and attractive family packages, the promotion is valid on select Caribbean voyages departing from November 16, 2009 through April 25, 2010, when booked now through November 1, 2009. Eligible cruises sail roundtrip from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Baltimore, Charleston and San Juan. During a booking window of October 26 – November 1, 2009, any travel agents who book any Celebrity Cruises Caribbean sailing departing between November 19, 2009 and April 25, 2010, will be entered into a drawing for a Caribbean cruise for two.

Known not only for its exceptional service and cuisine, Celebrity is also lauded for the comfortably sophisticated ambience onboard, perhaps most evident when lounging on one’s private stateroom veranda, gazing out at the deep blue waters of the Caribbean. During the booking promotion, dubbed “The Caribbean Perfected,” guests can upgrade their view on select sailings. Celebrity is offering free upgrades from an inside or oceanview stateroom to a veranda stateroom on select seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruises on Celebrity Solstice, roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale. For just $49 per person, guests can upgrade from an oceanview to a veranda stateroom on select sailings on the brand-new Celebrity Equinox’s 10- and 11-night Ultimate Caribbean voyages from Fort Lauderdale, or upgrade from an inside to an oceanview stateroom on select four- and five-night Western Caribbean voyages on Celebrity Century, roundtrip from Miami. For only $99 per person, guests on select cruises on Celebrity Mercury, sailing from Baltimore and Charleston, can upgrade from an inside to an oceanview stateroom; the same rate applies to upgrades from an inside to an oceanview stateroom on select sailings on Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Constellation, both offering itineraries roundtrip from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

“The Caribbean Perfected” also offers a steal in the way of inside stateroom rates. Based on double occupancy in an inside stateroom, the per-person-per-day rate (cruise only) is as low as $59 on Celebrity Century’s four- and five-night Western Caribbean cruise roundtrip from Miami. On Celebrity Summit’s seven-night Caribbean voyages roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, rates per person per day in an inside stateroom (cruise only, based on double occupancy) start from $79.

At rates starting from $99 per person per day in a inside stateroom (cruise only, based on double occupancy), guests can experience Celebrity Mercury’s nine-night Bahamas and 12-night Eastern Caribbean cruises roundtrip from Baltimore – new to Celebrity this winter and repeating in the winter of 2010-11. At the same starting rate of $99, guests can enjoy Caribbean getaways on Celebrity Millennium’s nine-, 10-, 11- and 15-night Southern Caribbean cruises from San Juan; or Celebrity Constellation’s 14-night Exotic Southern Caribbean cruises from Miami.

The special rates offered as part of “The Caribbean Perfected” can allow families of four to sail for as low as $1,199 on a sailing less than six nights in length; as low as $1,499 on a sailing seven nights in length; or as low as $2,209 on a sailing of nine nights or longer. These prices are cruise only, based on four persons in an interior quad stateroom.
