COURTESY Celebrity Cruises: Miami (March. 3, 2022) – The best cruise line in Europe just got even better as Celebrity Cruises announced today the award-winning cruise line will sail year-round in the Mediterranean, adding on to its summer season with sailings from September 2023 through March 2024.  Sailing in The Mediterranean for the first time in winter, guests will be treated to a new-luxury experience on board the award-winning Celebrity Infinity® as they visit some of the most sought-after locations in the world, including the breath-taking Pyramids of Egypt, the striking Acropolis of Athens, or one of the oldest cities in the world, Jerusalem.

The only Celebrity ship sailing in the Mediterranean all year round, Celebrity Infinity will kick off her winter season embarking on nine and 10-night itineraries where guests will be treated to the best of the Iberian Peninsula. Rotating between setting sail from the ports of Barcelona, Spain, and Lisbon, Portugal, guests will experience one of the largest coastlines in the Mediterranean visiting the beautiful Palma de Mallorca, the stunning and historically rich city of Seville, and more.

Then, from October 2023 to January 2024, Infinity will call Barcelona home as she embarks on 11- and 12-night itineraries and returns to Morocco for the first time since 2008. Guests will experience the sights of the whitewashed hills of Tangier, Morocco, explore the authentic food vendors and medinas in Casablanca, and be treated to the fantastical landscapes of the Canary Islands among other top destinations.

Capping off the winter season, Infinity will then return to Greece, the birthplace of Celebrity Cruises, where bucket-list travelers will be treated in February and March 2024 to 10 or 11-night itineraries traveling three continents, visiting some of the world’s most revered historical sights and ancient wonders in Egypt and Greece, including The Great Pyramid, the Acropolis in Athens, The Temple of Artemis, and more.
