Celebrity Cruises has just announced its return to service on June 5 with itineraries through the Caribbean with Celebrity Millennium. The big surprise has been knowing that its home port will be in St. Maarten.
It seems that companies are tired of waiting for news from the United States CDC to return to operating from North American ports and are looking for alternatives to put their fleets in motion.
President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises , Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said:
” Returning to the Caribbean after more than a year of absence is a very important moment for us “
“It marks the beginning of the end of what has been an exceptionally challenging time for all “
The board added that Celebrity has been working with St. Maarten authorities to develop “best practices” and is “forever grateful for the support and collaboration” they have shown.
