Celebrity Cruises said the Celebrity Constellation will be redeployed from Dubai to Tampa for the winter 2020-21 season.

The 2,170-passenger ship will continue its itineraries from Dubai and India this winter.

Celebrity last sailed from Tampa in 2007. The Constellation will sail 10- and 11-night itineraries in the eastern and southern Caribbean and to Central America.  

The Constellation's arrival in Tampa coincides with a $3 billion waterfront upgrade called Water Street Tampa. The 50-acre district will feature retail, offices, homes, hotels, and entertainment. In addition, the city has completed its Riverwalk, which has led to new private investment.

Celebrity plans to modernize the 17-year-old Constellation in a drydock in May 2020.
