Celebrity Cruises selects Canadian North as airline partner for the Western Canadian expansion of its innovative ‘All Included’ cruise program

CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – Oct. 16, 2017) - Canadian North Airlines is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Celebrity Cruises as official airline partner for its inaugural Western Canada ‘All Included’ cruise program in February, March and early April, 2018.

Celebrity Cruises guests will enjoy seamless round-trip ‘snow to sun’ air transfers aboard Canadian North’s comfortable and spacious 737-300 aircraft, with warm hospitality provided by friendly and attentive Canadian North crew members and pleasing inflight amenities such as complimentary hot meal service, alcoholic beverages and checked luggage.

In addition to air transfers, Celebrity Cruises ‘All Included’ packages include a seven-night Western Caribbean or Eastern Caribbean cruise aboard Celebrity Silhouette®, a 1 night pre-cruise stay at the Marriot West Palm Beach, a Classic Beverage Package, gratuities, taxes and more.

“Celebrity’s All Included vacation packages offer modern luxury from take-off to cruise and back and our guests love inclusive travel and non-stop flights,” said Ken Brooks, Director of Sales, Celebrity Cruises Canada. “Celebrity was ground-breaking in bringing the enjoyment of All Included cruising to the industry and we will continue to expand and bring this program to as many Canadians as possible.”

“Canadian North is extremely proud of our longstanding innovative partnership with Celebrity Cruises,” said John Hankirk, Senior Vice-President of Operations and Charters, Canadian North. “We congratulate Celebrity Cruises on their expansion of their successful ‘All Included’ program to five new Western Canadian cities and look forward to the upcoming return of our polar bear to sunny Florida skies.”
