The milestone sailing marks the ship’s first voyage in 881 days along with the full return of all 63 vessels in the parent-company Royal Caribbean Group fleet.
In honor of the milestone, the entire fleet will sound their horns today in celebration.
Celebrity’s return to service started exactly one year ago to the day when Celebrity Edge made history on June 26, 2021, as the first liner to sail from a U.S. port in 15 months after being grounded due to the global COVID crisis. The company then systematically returned more vessels to the water to feed people's love of travel with sailings from the Caribbean to Alaska, Europe, and the Galapagos.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises said that sailing not only capped an incredible journey but set a course for "a whole new world of infinite possibilities" for the brand and for cruise travel.
“Seeing the beautiful Celebrity Infinity sail out of Port Everglades will be an emotional moment for everyone at Celebrity Cruises, especially our crew, who have waited so long to welcome guests aboard, once again.”
Celebrity Infinity’s restart coincides with the Day of the Seafarer, designated by the IMO-International Maritime Organization in recognition of the contribution seafarers make to the world economy.
In her first voyage in 2+ years, Celebrity Infinity will take passengers on a 7-night Eastern Caribbean trip with calls in the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, and Dominicana.
Following her return sailing, the ship will embark on alternating 7-night Eastern & Western Caribbean itineraries. All 7-night itineraries will feature calls to Bimini/Nassau, Bahamas and Key West (Florida). Eastern Caribbean sailings will also visit Puerto Plata-Amber Cove (Dominicana) while Western Caribbean sailings will call on Belize City and Cozumel (Quintana Roo Mexico, Riviera Maya).
