Last week, Celebrity Cruises announced that it was canceling Celebrity Solstice‘s 2022-2023 Asia season, and the ship would instead be sailing from the U.S. to the Mexican Riviera, replacing Celebrity Millennium in the region.

Now, the line has announced exactly what the vessel’s west coast itineraries will be, and also revealed the voyages that Celebrity Millennium will be operating over in the Caribbean instead of to the Mexican Riviera.

Returning to the Caribbean from October to December 2022, Celebrity Millennium will embark on seven-night itineraries that include stops at destinations such as St. Thomas, USVI; Bridgetown, Barbados; and Nassau, Bahamas.

As part of Millennium‘s repositioning, the ship will be doing a 15-night one-way Panama Canal cruise from San Diego. There will be six port calls along the way, including Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Puntarenas, Costa Rica; and Oranjestad, Aruba. The sailing will conclude in Puerto Rico.

Celebrity Cruises reportedly canceled Solstice‘s Asia season due to continued uncertainty in the region about when international cruise operations would be able to resume. The ship was scheduled to sail from Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
