Celebrity Cruises Expands Caribbean Itineraries Out of Port Everglades

Cruisers have more opportunities to experience Perfect Day at CocoCay.

For the Winter 2024-2025 season, Celebrity Cruises has unveiled its all-new Caribbean offerings on four of its ships: Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Equinox, and Celebrity Summit. Guests will embark from three Florida ports, including South Florida’s Port Everglades, Central Florida’s Port Canaveral, and West Florida’s Port Tampa Bay. Featuring over 40 new itineraries, the program caters to different needs and preferences, offering everything from quick getaways to weekly seven-night cruises and up to nine-night escapes. These itineraries will take guests to tropical hotspots such as Belize, Bimini, Grand Cayman, and San Juan, with select itineraries offering the opportunity to visit Perfect Day at CocoCay. These new options will be available for booking starting on Aug. 22.

“We are so excited to unveil this new program. It provides our guests with more options to experience the natural beauty of the Caribbean, which is elevated by our personalized experiences on board,” Laura Hodges Bethge says, president of Celebrity Cruises. “As part of this expansion, we are thrilled to add Port Canaveral to our list of home ports – it is a perfect market to reach a wide mix of both in- and out-of-state travelers looking for fun in the Caribbean sun.” 

As part of the expanded itineraries, Celebrity is set to broaden its offerings from Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades by providing more opportunities for travelers to embark on two of its award-winning ships, Celebrity Apex and Celebrity Summit. From Oct. 23, 2024, to March 8, 2025, travelers can indulge in five new sailings aboard Apex, which will offer six- to seven-night itineraries covering popular destinations such as St. Maarten, San Juan, Grand Cayman, and Mexico, as well as select sailings to Perfect Day at CocoCay. Additionally, from Feb. 25, 2025, to April 10, 2025, Summit will offer five new itineraries ranging from five- to nine-night across the Western and Eastern Caribbean.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
