Mar 29, 2021

Celebrity Cruises have become the latest cruise line to confirm the return to the UK cruises this summer in line with the UK Government's decision to allow domestic travel operations from 17 May 2021. Today the company announced its long-anticipated return to UK shores with the Celebrity Silhouette setting sail from Southampton from July 3, offering new staycations for discerning British guests. The latest announcement comes just days after Celebrity Cruises announced its Caribbean comeback with Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Apex debute from Greece.

Celebrity Silhouette will embark on a series of six-to-eight-night itineraries around Britain’s coastline. Guests will have the chance to explore the Jurassic Coastline from Portland; discover bustling Scottish cities and signature highlands including Inverness, Kirkwall and Glasgow; uncover the rich history of Belfast; and, immerse themselves in the creative and cultural hub of Liverpool, home of the Beatles. The new sailings go on sale beginning April 6.

The ship will sail with all guests ages 18 and above vaccinated against COVID-19, and those under the age of 18 with negative PCR test results.

Celebrity Cruises return to UK shores will be welcome news, not just for UK travelers looking for a luxury staycation to reconnect with friends and family, but also for the British tourism industry.

“We’re delighted to be returning to Southampton after over a year away. We are truly committed to the UK market and can’t wait to welcome guests back onboard. What could be better than a new luxury ship, ready to take guests on a journey around one of the world’s most beautiful and impressive coastlines? Not only is this extremely significant to us as a business, but also to efforts to boost the UK’s local tourism industry.” Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said, 

Jo Rzymowska, Vice President and Managing Director EMEA, said: “We are excited to offer guests the chance to reconnect at sea with family and friends and to make up for all those missed celebrations. I cannot thank our UK travel partners enough for their unwavering support throughout this unprecedented time. We can’t wait to welcome our mutual guests onboard Celebrity Silhouette.”

In addition, the company’s ‘Cruise with Confidence’ program provides flexible cancellations and best price guarantees. All guests already booked to sail on Celebrity Silhouette this summer will be contacted to discuss the options for their current booking.
