Celebrity Cruises, a part of the Miami-based Royal Caribbean Cruises, has unveiled a new homeport as it plans to redeploy one of its vessels to Port Tampa Bay.
The company’s Celebrity Constellation would deploy on three alternating 10- and 11-night roundtrip sailings for the winter 2020 season from Tampa. The vessel is scheduled to undergo its “revolutionary” modernization in May 2020 as part of ‘The Celebrity Revolution’, Celebrity’s USD 500 million investment in ship-wide upgrades.
“Our guests and travel advisors have been asking us to return to Tampa since our last call there in 2007,” Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises, said.
“We are very excited to welcome Celebrity Cruises to the Tampa Bay market. In 2020 Celebrity Cruises will offer a variety of itineraries from Tampa that will include stops at exotic locations in southern and eastern Caribbean,” Paul Anderson, Port Tampa Bay President and CEO Paul Anderson, added.
