Celebrity Cruises Has a New Destination in the Bahamas 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - April 23, 2024

The Bahamas’ Perfect Day at CocoCay has been one of Royal Caribbean’s most popular cruise stops in the Caribbean in recent years. 

Until now, though, Celebrity Cruises itineraries didn’t visit the port. 

That just changed this week with the first-ever Celebrity call on Perfect Day at CocoCay, with guests on both Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Beyond stopping on the private island in The Bahamas. 

It’s part of Celebrity’s expanded “short Caribbean itinerary” cruises out of South Florida. 

Laura Hodges, president of Celebrity Cruises, said the shorter itineraries were inspired by guest feedback. 

“Introducing Perfect Day at CocoCay presents new experiences for Celebrity guests seeking quick beach getaway escapes close to home,” she said in a statement provided to Caribbean Journal. 

The stop includes the island’s adults-only Hideaway Beach, which includes four different bars and a DJ. 

Both Reflection and Beyond will be visiting Perfect Day at CocoCay on five-night sailings out of Fort Lauderdale. Those itineraries also stop in Bimini, the Mexican Caribbean island of Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Key West.
