Celebrity Cruises plans to up its presence in Charleston by offering Caribbean cruises from our port beginning in February of next year.

Read more stories on this subject in our cruises topic page.The line will offer 10 and 11 night cruises from Charleston aboard the Celebrity Mercury.

For more, check out The Charleston Regional Business Journal.

Cruise ships and their tourists are a small fraction of Charleston’s tourist economy — but as you’d expect, they’re an important fraction as they’re usually first-time visitors.

And it’s those first-timers that are more likely to visit the Yorktown, Fort Sumter, and take carriage rides.
