Inaugural Bears Getaway Cruise for Charity

Jan 23, 2022 to Jan 30, 2022
Fort Lauderdale, San Juan, Tortola, Philipsburg, and Three Days at Sea
Join the Inaugural Bears Getaway Cruise for Charity aboard the Celebrity Edge® as we sail to the Virgin Islands in support of The LGBTQ Center in Orlando. The LGBTQ Center's mission is to promote and empower the LGBTQ community and our allies through information, education, advocacy, and support.
 
During this week-long adventure, you will sail to the Virgin Islands while spending time with your fellow Bears and Bear Lovers. Relax in the pool with your included drink package, eat gourmet food in stunning restaurants, and attend private Bears Getaway events throughout the week. 
 
The Celebrity Edge® was designed to create a closer connection between you, the sea, and the world beyond—blurring the lines between inside and out. The result was so extraordinary, Celebrity Edge was recognized as one of the world’s greatest places by Time magazine.
 
Higher ceilings. Airier venues. Flowing architecture so every deck, every experience, is seamlessly connected. From the mind-blowing Eden to the sea’s only Magic Carpet®, each Edge Series ship leaves traditional thinking in its wake.
 
Book by October 25, 2021, to lock in the best rates. This is one cruise you don't want to miss!
