Celebrity Cruises has returned to sailing to Australia and New Zealand, as Celebrity Eclipse departed from Sydney, Australia, on the cruise line’s first voyage in the region for 930 days.
The ship is sailing a 12-night itinerary exploring New Zealand, the first of 17 voyages departing from Sydney and Auckland, New Zealand, through to April 2023, and the first for Celebrity Eclipse in Australian, New Zealand and South Pacific waters.
These will include Celebrity’s first Australian food and wine itinerary, visiting Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart, the return of its Auckland to Fiji cruise in January 2023 and three South Pacific Island itineraries.
“The return Down Under has been long-awaited but someday has finally arrived!” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises. “Celebrity Eclipse is the first Celebrity ship to sail this region for 930 days - a momentous occasion for the brand and our team members who have worked so hard to get to this point; and the first of many ‘WonderFULL’ sailings ahead. Returning to this region is another significant milestone in the industry’s global recovery, as we sail forward into a bright future.”
