Canadian North Airlines announced on Oct. 16, 2017, that it has been selected by Celebrity Cruises as official airline partner for its inaugural Western Canada ‘all included’ cruise program in February, March and early April, 2018.
For the first time, Celebrity Cruises will offer air-inclusive luxury cruise packages with non-stop flights from five Western Canadian cities–Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon and Thunder Bay–to West Palm Beach, Fla. This marks an important expansion of this innovative program.
In 2014, Celebrity Cruises introduced the air-inclusive cruise concept, with Canadian North providing air transfers on its behalf between Eastern Canada and its Florida ports of departure.
Celebrity Cruises’ guests will enjoy seamless round-trip ‘snow to sun’ air transfers aboard Canadian North’s comfortable and spacious 737-300 aircraft–with warm hospitality provided by friendly and attentive Canadian North crew members and pleasing in-flight amenities such as complimentary hot meal service, alcoholic beverages and checked luggage.
In addition to air transfers, Celebrity Cruises’ all included packages include a seven-night Western Caribbean or Eastern Caribbean cruise aboard Celebrity Silhouette, a one night pre-cruise stay at the Marriot in 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 for 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.”
“Canadian North is extremely proud of our longstanding innovative partnership with Celebrity Cruises,” said John Hankirk, senior vice-president of operations and charters for Canadian North. “We congratulate Celebrity Cruises on [its] expansion of [its] 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.”
