The 15 year anniversary Jan 10-14, 2019 on the stunning Celebrity Infinity to Key West and Cozumel. It’s been quite a wild ride to say the least and I can’t think of anyone to be on this journey with than you my FB friends and fam. It’s overwhelming to hear all of the stories, relationships that began or became deeper and more meaningful, the lives positively changed, the life long friendships and business deals that have occurred due to GC.
The team has been meticulously reading all of your feedback and ideas and we are so excited to bring you an experience that is the culmination of what we all have created together over the years. We always innovate and try new things on every cruise. Some are a home run and exceed all expectations and some are a bust and we won’t be doing again.
So what’s new for the 15 year anniversary?
GCMIA will be sailing from Fort Lauderdale for the first time ever. It is 30 miles away so we have decided to keep the name GCMIA the same way we called the west coast GC Los Angeles even though the port was Long Beach 30 miles away. GCCABO sails from San Diego.
There are many benefits of sailing from Fort Lauderdale such as being able to sail on Celebrity. Many of you always fly into FLL for GCMIA anyway as all the low costs carriers fly into there like Virgin, JetBlue and Southwest. None of these fly into Miami. The airport is pretty much connected to the cruise port which is huge. It’s literally 2 miles to Port Everglades cruise port entrance. This also presents some very exciting opportunities for a pre-party location in the FLL area. The post party at E11even was a big hit and we will be trying to work on that again. Moving to FLL also allowed us to go to 4 days from 3 days and still stay over the weekend which was a big survey response.
A new destination for GC. You know we will be coming up with something ridiculously fun and Key West is a blast with a unique culture all its own. We have ideas and options we are vetting out to come up with the best experience. Open to ideas!
Its been 5 years since GC has been back (10 year anniversary) and we sold out within 2 weeks of on sale on that one. We all know the issues the last 2 GC’s with the destination parties. I’m very excited to announce that we will be INCLUDING the party and transportation in Cozumel for everyone.
Celebrity Cruise Line and Infinity
We all know the issues quite a few of you had with Royal Caribbean. Although Celebrity is owned by Royal Caribbean they are completely separate companies. All concerns and learnings are being addressed. There are also new suite categories, great food and the ship is GORGEOUS. This is the highest end cruise line and ship we have ever used. And it even costs less on average per person per day than GC Miami 2018.
The VIP experience
There will not be any artist events onboard that cost more money. All artist events on the ship and islands will be included. This split the GCFAM and will not be happening again. Admirals table service will be available on all GC.
