Celebrity Cruises celebrated its return to the Port of Los Angeles following an eight-year hiatus when Celebrity Solstice set sail from the West Coast port on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022.

Bound for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the milestone sailing also marked the award-winning ship’s debut in the market and the first-time Celebrity Cruises has offered a full season of Mexican Riviera sailings in 15 years.

Now through April, 2023, Celebrity Solstice will offer five, seven and eight night sailings visiting some of Mexico’s most sun-drenched spots including: the romance of Puerto Vallarta, nestled between the Sierra Madre mountains and the Pacific ocean; the exciting vibe of Cabo San Lucas at the tip of the Baja Peninsula; the pristine beaches of Mazatlán; and Ensenada, known for its authentic Mexico culinary flavors and wine.

Celebrity Solstice is the namesake of Celebrity’s award-winning Solstice Series, among the most beautiful and unique ships at sea. The ship features generous staterooms, including the spa-inspired AquaClass with its exclusive access to the clean cuisine at restaurant Blu; The Retreat experience for suite guests including private restaurant dining and 24/7 lounge; The Lawn Club, a unique outdoor grassy area for playing outdoor games, taking in a movie or concert and enjoying the sun; the Sunset Bar, the best spot for experiencing sunsets at sea; a stylish outdoor pool deck and adults-only, domed indoor pool area; numerous distinctive restaurants with menus crafted by a Michelin-starred chef and the most-awarded wine collection at sea; and the extensive soothing treatment options at The Spa.

“When Celebrity Solstice was originally introduced, she ushered in a new, innovative era of cruise ships and introduced features and amenities few ever dreamed would be on a cruise ship,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo in a statement. “With such a beautiful aesthetic, this ship of dreams, is the perfect offering for the City of Dreams and we’re excited to sail her along the magnificent Mexican coastline.”
