TAMPA, Fla. — It's been 12 years, but Celebrity Cruises will set sail from Tampa again in the near future.

The cruise line will begin offering three Caribbean itineraries starting in the winter of 2020-21, Port Tampa Bay announced Monday.

Passengers can choose from the following:

  • A 10-night Eastern Caribbean escape, calling San Juan, Puerto Rico; Basseterre, St. Kitts & Nevis; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Samana, Dominican Republic
  • An 11-night Southern Caribbean trek with visits to Key West, Florida; Kralendijk, Bonaire; Oranjestad, Aruba; Willemstad, Curacao; and George Town, Grand Cayman
