VACAYA’S 5TH BIRTHDAY BASH!
FEBRUARY 12-19, 2023 – CELEBRITY REFLECTION

In 2023, VACAYA is turning FIVE and we’re going ALL OUT to celebrate with an incredible way to experience the Caribbean as we sail roundtrip from beautiful and uber-LGBT-friendly Fort Lauderdale with EVERYBODY UNDER THE SUN!

In honor of our 5 years, you’ll experience the very best of 5 different countries – one fabulous playground after another for each year: the United States, Mexico, Belize, Honduras, and Cayman Islands.

In the world of charter cruising, there is one class of ship that rises above the rest – the Solstice Class from Celebrity Cruises. And we are THRILLED to take the step up from Millennium Class ships (which have been tremendous for us with Summit and Millennium) to the Solstice Class’s stunning Reflection! Reflection is a perfect vessel for everything we do in bringing people together. And needless to say, but this will be our BIGGEST CELEBRATION yet!


 

THE VALUE

Cruising takes the guess work out of travel. And with all the added VACAYA benefits – from signature entertainment and welcoming parties to endless social activities and non-stop fun – it’s also an incredible value. With so many inclusions, your precious vacation dollars have never been better spent. And with THIS cruise, we’ll be giving you the ability to purchase a beverage package to make the value even better! Click the VALUE button below to read the complete list of inclusions.
