PORTS OF CALL
  • Day 1: Departure
    When you step aboard in Ft. Lauderdale, you’ll welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine prior to moving on to registration. A welcome surprise greets you in your stateroom, but don’t take too long getting settled—you’ll want to watch the Fort Lauderdale skyline disappear as we sail out of Port Everglades. Start the evening off with our private and exclusive Welcome Cocktail Party where you’ll reconnect with friends and make some new ones—all before heading for a delicious dinner.
  • Day 2: Cruising
    In the morning, take the time to relax and enjoy the warm tropical breezes as we cruise to our destination. You’ll also be surrounded by Pan Am colleagues during the World Wings International Annual Meeting. Dinner options abound, and this will be our first “Evening Chic” night (Evening Chic attire has replaced formal attire. Dressier than smart casual, “Evening Chic” is less dressy than formal attire. However, if you would like to wear a tuxedo or formal gown on “evening chic” nights, you absolutely should.)
  • Day 3: Grand Cayman
    Grand Cayman offers world-class restaurants, designer boutiques, white sand beaches, brilliant blue waters, and teeming coral reefs. Sunbathe, swim, or snorkel with the graceful stingrays in the crystalline waters of Coral Reef Gardens. This is the place to enjoy conch salads, chowders, and fritters, as well as rich Caribbean curries.
  • Day 4: Cruising
    The President’s Forum will take place after breakfast, followed by our invited guest speaker (subject to change).
  • Day 5: Oranjestad, Aruba
    Oranjestad, the charming capital of Aruba, is made for walking, or dig your toes into the gorgeous sand beaches. If you dare, try an adventure by windsurfing or kiteboarding. Divers and snorkelers will be thrilled by the vibrant coral reefs, neon tropical fish, and eerie old shipwrecks. Discover local crafts in the nearby marketplace and enjoy French fare with a Caribbean twist.
  • Day 6: Willemstad, Curacao
    Stroll through Willemstad’s magnificent waterfront, admire the colonial buildings, and explore the backstreet cafés, shops, museums, and galleries. Visit 17th-century Fort Amsterdam in the historic area, a UNESCO World Heritage site. For an unforgettable experience, swim with the dolphins or join a reef dive. Be sure to try a glass of traditional blue curaçao and experience the local cuisine with its Indonesian and Dutch traditions.
  • Day 7: Bonaire
    Kralendijk, the laid-back capital of Bonaire, is lined with delightfully pastel stucco houses. Bonaire is famous for its diving and is surrounded by a marine park that starts at the beach and extends 200 feet in depth and covers its entire coastline. Go hiking, look for flamingos, or visit the only barefoot casino in the Caribbean. Try the local fare, like the Dutch snack, Frikandel—a deep-fried sausage—or the Creole gumbo stew called Yambo.
  • Day 8: Cruising
    Relax under the Caribbean sky, enjoy shipboard activities, and then join friends for our exclusive Farewell Cocktail Party before having another superb dinner. This will be our second “Evening Chic” night.
  • Day 9: Cruising
    Savor this final day of visiting with friends, gazing at the blues of the ocean, and being as spoiled as you’d like to be.
  • Day 10:Arrival Ft. Lauderdale

PRE-CRUISE TRAVEL AND HOTEL
If you are traveling to Ft. Lauderdale by air (or driving any long distance), we strongly suggest that you arrive on October 28, the day prior to embarkation. Precise boarding times will vary with the addition of enhanced health protocols and requirements and will be communicated to you closer to the cruise departure.

There are many advantages to booking your air travel with “Flights by Celebrity”. These benefits include book now – pay later, competitive pricing, points/mileage accrual, and no booking fees. In addition, if your “Flights by Celebrity” booked flight is delayed, Celebrity will assume responsibility for rerouting and delivering you to our ship.

We are arranging a block of hotel rooms for the night of October 28, as well as transportation to the port from the hotel the next morning. Information will be made available when the contracts are finalized.

CHECK-IN AND BOARDING INFORMATION
Advance Check-in can be largely accomplished by downloading the Celebrity App to your Smart Phone up to 90 days prior to departure. By using this free option, you will greatly expedite the boarding process.

Check-In and Boarding for a cruise are considerably different than checking in for a flight. One of the most important factors is that last-minute boarding is simply not permitted per government restrictions.

At this time, departure processes are being updated with the latest safety procedures. We will post these procedures once they’ve been released by Celebrity. We strongly encourage everyone flying to FLL to arrive on Thursday, 28 October. We ask for your patience as these procedures are developed and implemented.
