This summer doesn’t even officially start for another week, but it’s already time to get into the summer mood, especially where your summer vacation is concerned – and the sooner the better. Why is that? Because Celebrity Cruises has an incredible Summer Savings Event deal going on right now, which offers incredible savings for every person in every stateroom on nearly every sailing departing from July 1, 2017 through April 30, 2019.
This means you can book a last minute summer vacation for 2017 or wait and book a vacation next year…and book it on Celebrity’s newest ship, Celebrity Edge! This cutting edge ship is going to be bringing modern luxury and 5-star amenities to the Caribbean Sea starting in December 2017.

The Summer Savings Event sale comes in two parts: cash savings and perks.
Save up to $200
The first two passengers in a stateroom or suite can save up to $200 on their cruise. The savings differ depending what category of room you book, and are per person:
- $50 savings for inside staterooms
- $100 savings for ocean view or veranda staterooms
- $150 for Concierge Class or AquaClass staterooms
- $200 for Suite Class staterooms
Free Perk (aka Free Drinks!)
Also as part of the Summer Savings Event, you’ll get to choose one of Celebrity Cruises’ amazing “perks” when you book an ocean view stateroom or higher. There are four different perks.
The first perk option is a popular one if you like to enjoy alcoholic beverages while on vacation as it is the free Classic Beverage Package Perk, which gets you unlimited drinks each day of your cruise that includes wines, domestic beers, and liquor drinks up to $9.
Don’t think you’ll make much use of the beverage package? No worries. You can choose from one of these other three perks:
- $150 Onboard Credit: You’ll get $150 to spend while on board that can cover a spa treatment, specialty restaurants, shore excursions, drinks, and more.
- Prepaid Tips: This option prepays your tips at Celebrity Cruises’ suggested daily rate for your stateroom attendant, dining waiter, assistant waiter, and headwaiter.
- Free Unlimited Wi-Fi Package: Need to stay connected while you sail? This is a great perk option for you then.
The third and fourth passengers in a stateroom get a free Classic Non-Alcoholic Beverage Package and a 40-minute Internet package.
More Perks for Suite Guests!
Stay in a suite for your cruise and get all four perks, which gives your vacation a luxurious, all-inclusive feel. Relaxing indeed.
So where should you cruise this summer with all these savings?
Alaska cruises only operate from May to September so are a good choice for an unforgettable summer sailing. There are still some staterooms left on the Alaska cruises out of Seattle, which is a convenient embarkation port for west coasters to get to thanks to plenty of affordable flights up and down the coast. Click here to see some other itinerary options for Alaska.
Where should you cruise next year (or the year after)?
The Caribbean! Because that is where the Celebrity Edge will be sailing. Celebrity Edge’s first sailing will depart December 16, 2018, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which will also serve as Celebrity Edge’s homeport.
Celebrity Edge will offer two different itineraries from Fort Lauderdale. One will be an Eastern Caribbean cruise that visits San Juan, Puerto Rico; Tortola, British Virgin Islands; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten. The other itinerary option sails around the Western Caribbean and stops in Key West, Florida; Costa Maya, Mexico; Cozumel, Mexico; and George Town, Grand Cayman. You can visit all ports of call and make your vacation a 14-night one by booking back-to-back sailings.
Where else should you cruise?
Northern Europe and the Mediterranean are much-loved cruise destinations. Visit gorgeous cities like Helsinki, Finland; Copenhagen, Denmark; and Hamburg, Germany (just to name a few!) in northern Europe while sailing the Baltic Sea, or live life la dolce vita at an assortment of cruise ports around Italy, Spain, France, Greece, and beyond.
The South Pacific is also becoming a hot destination for cruising, particularly itineraries that stop in the beautiful country of New Zealand, which became a must-visit destination for travelers after the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy came out and New Zealand’s popularity hasn’t waned thanks to vibrant cities and intoxicating natural scenery.
