BOSTON — Celebrity Cruises has wrapped up a successful first season homeporting in Boston, with the Celebrity Summit now repositioning in Miami for its Caribbean season.
In 2022, the ship embarked on and successfully hosted four 10-, 11- and 12-night sailings that cruised the Northeast coastline, visiting ports in Maine and Canada.
“Our first season homeporting in Boston was an absolutely thrilling success and one of Celebrity’s most sought-after itineraries,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “Having grown up in New England, this area is near and dear to my heart and having our guests experience the stunning scenery onboard the exquisite Celebrity Summit has brought me a lot of joy.”
Lutoff-Perlo also extended her thanks to the City of Boston and the Massachusetts Port Authority for their support this season: “They have been strategic partners of Celebrity Cruises for years and their advocacy on our behalf is a major reason why we see Boston as being a homeport for years to come.”
Flynn Cruiseport Boston, located in South Boston and named after former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn, welcomed back cruising in 2022 with 126 ships between April and November, from 19 different cruise lines. Celebrity first started calling at Boston in 1990.
For its encore performance, Celebrity Summit will be returning to homeport in Boston between August – October 2023, where guests will embark on 11-night itineraries as they work their way up the Eastern coastline, visiting Maine – including a brand-new port, Rockland – before reaching Canada, with an overnight in Quebec.
