I was wondering if Celebrity will be offering more cruises out of Los Angeles/Long Beach. Currently there's only a few per year. Didn't know if at some point more cruises will be sailing in and out of the port there.

I would be THRILLED if Celebrity would sail more often out of LA! 
I know many people who would be as well.

I would love it also if there were more cruises out of the LA port. We are Elite Plus and could afford to cruise more frequently and upgrade our cabin without the huge air fare costs to consider.

Add another vote for LA area based cruises. Taking one this year and next year being pushed into Princess (although I have a Celebrity Panama Canal from San Diego.

Parent company Royal Caribbean pulled ships out after the downturn in the economy years ago, along with health issues in Mexico at the time.  They say they will be back, but we are not holding our breath.  ALL the other major lines have either newer ships going out of Los Angeles or a brand new one from Carnival out of Long Beach.

 

October of this year there is a 15 day r/t to Hawaii on Eclipse, but it is really booked.  Royal says they can't make enough $$$ from So Cal, so they dont care about us.

Agree with the above. We’re actually stepping away from X and our next cruise is on NCL’s Bliss. We are trying their Haven class. Why? No X ships here on the west coast compared to the competition. Carnival, Princess, HAL, Disney and NCL has placed more focus in this market.

Thank you for the response. I do hope one day to see more cruises out of Los Angeles. Based on the competition from other cruise lines in this area, I think it would be good on Celebrity's part to begin offering more consistent cruising on the west coast. Not certain if this is because Celebrity doesn't have as large a fleet as other cruise lines, which could be. However, with the newer ships set to enter cruising service in the next several years, I think there's a good opportunity to provide service out of Los Angeles.
