For its 2019 summer season, Celebrity Cruises will have five stunning ships, including the newest, Celebrity Edge, sailing in Europe. With stops in 27 different countries, overnight stays in 16 cities, and visits to more than 90 destinations – including three brand new Celebrity-first ports of call: Nauplion (Greece); Rijeka (Croatia); and Santa Margherita (Italy).
“From our expansive new itineraries, including three exciting new ports of call and overnights in 16 cities across the region, to our specially curated shore excursions, there’s a reason we’re continually recognised and win multiple awards,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.
The newest iconic European landmark isn’t on land
As revealed today by Lutoff-Perlo at an exclusive event in London, Celebrity Edge will be transporting guests to the stunning vistas of the Mediterranean with a range of seven- to 11-night sailings from iconic cities like Barcelona and Rome in 2019. The itineraries will also feature two of the new ports of call: Nauplion (Greece) – a charming coastal town – and Santa Margherita (Italy) – a picturesque seaside town near Portofino.
With its revolutionary, outward-facing design – highlighted by signature features such as the Magic Carpet and the Edge Stateroom with Infinite Veranda – Europe has never seen a ship like Celebrity Edge before, and guests will have never seen Europe like they will on Celebrity Edge.
Beyond the Edge of Europe
In addition to Celebrity Edge, the modern luxury brand will also offer four more award-winning ships in sailing in the region: Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Reflection, and Celebrity Silhouette.
In 2019, Celebrity Infinity will return to Europe for the first time since 2014, offering seven- to 12-night itineraries with visits to some of the most popular countries in the region, including Italy, Malta, Greece, and Croatia.
With alternating seven-night sailings from Venice to Rome and Rome to Venice, Celebrity Infinity offers the flexibility to create even more immersive holidays by booking back-to-back itineraries for a 14-night tour of the Mediterranean. These combined sailings have no repeat stops along the way and include an exciting overnight stay in Venice.

Modern luxury explorers will be able to choose from a variety of nine- and 10-night itineraries sailing from Venice, Barcelona, and Rome; Celebrity Constellation will immerse guests along the Dalmatian Coast, the French Riviera, Italy, Spain, and the sun-soaked Greek Isles. The alternating sailings offer guests the opportunity to book nine- and 10-night itineraries back-to-back, creating unforgettable journeys across Europe.
