As of yesterday, cruising is officially back in the Caribbean.

Celebrity Cruises’ ship Celebrity Millennium has officially begun its brand-new schedule of sailings from the Dutch country of St. Maarten, which shares an island with its northern neighbor — the French country of St. Martin.

The vessel has begun a program of seven-night roundtrip cruises with two different itineraries. The first will visit two of the ABC islands, Aruba and Curaçao, which are in the southern Caribbean Sea just north of Venezuela. A stop in Barbados in the southeast Caribbean rounds out the itinerary.

The second Celebrity Millennium itinerary this summer visits Barbados as well, plus Tortola and St. Lucia — all of which are in the eastern Caribbean region.

“Today, we sail, again! This is such a significant moment for our company, our industry and the Caribbean. That this day has finally arrived for our guests and our crew is truly special – beyond words, really,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises.

“I am so happy to have our crew back onboard doing what they love and providing amazing vacations and service to our guests. I also am extremely grateful to the leadership of the St. Maarten government for their vision and support to make this moment happen. What an honor to now be the first to enthusiastically say, once again – ‘Welcome Aboard!'”
