Marking the launch of Celebrity’s World Tour, Celebrity has today unveiled 51 sailings to Alaska.

Celebrity Solstice, the newest of all cruise ships sailing to Alaska, offers the most verandas at sea, allowing incredible views of the unique scenery and wildlife. Guests can experience Sitka, with its snow-capped mountains, and the awe-inspiring Hubbard Glacier, the longest river of ice in North America, and one of the most active glaciers in Alaska. Captain’s Club loyalty members will have exclusive ‘Priority Access’ for booking their Alaska trips beginning February 20, 2014, five days before the official on sale date - February 25, 2014.
