CALGARY — Celebrity Cruises has selected Canadian North Airlines as its official airline partner for its inaugural Western Canada ‘All Included’ cruise program in February, March and early April, 2018.
For the first time, Celebrity will offer air-inclusive luxury cruise packages with nonstop flights from five Western Canadian cities – Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon and Thunder Bay – to West Palm Beach, Florida.
The cruise line first introduced the air-inclusive cruise concept in 2014, with Canadian North providing air transfers on its behalf between Eastern Canada and its Florida ports of departure.
Celebrity Cruises guests will enjoy roundtrip, ‘snow to sun’ air transfers aboard Canadian North’s 737-300 aircraft, complimentary hot meal service, alcoholic beverages and checked luggage.
In addition to air transfers, Celebrity’s ‘All Included’ packages include a seven-night Western Caribbean or Eastern Caribbean cruise aboard Celebrity Silhouette, a one-night, pre-cruise stay at the Marriott West Palm Beach, a Classic Beverage Package, gratuities, taxes and more.
“Celebrity’s All Included vacation packages offer modern luxury from takeoff to cruise and back and our guests love inclusive travel and non-stop flights,” said Ken Brooks, Director of Sales, Celebrity Cruises Canada. “Celebrity was ground-breaking in bringing the enjoyment of All Included cruising to the industry and we will continue to expand and bring this program to as many Canadians as possible.”
John Hankirk, Senior Vice-President of Operations and Charters, Canadian North, added: “Canadian North is extremely proud of our longstanding innovative partnership with Celebrity Cruises. We congratulate Celebrity Cruises on their expansion of their successful ‘All Included’ program to five new Western Canadian cities and look forward to the upcoming return of our polar bear to sunny Florida skies.”
