In most cases, flights are non-refundable and no changes can be made once booked. Flights are customizable and you can choose to book Coach, First Class or Business Class.

To book your own Choice Air reservation, go to www.ChoiceAir.com Check rates as often as you'd like and then when you are ready...go ahead and book. You will need your reservation number, Ship name (Celebrity Infinity) and sailing date (17SEP2017) in order to book. Full payment is due at the time of booking. Once booked, Cruise & Crop will receive notification and we'll send you an updated confirmation.

Book your own air and arrive on 9/16/16.
Book the pre-cruise hotel & transfers through Celebrity Cruise Line.

Call Cruise & Crop for current rates on 1, 2 or 3-night pre-hotel options through Celebrity Cruise Line. These rates would also include your transfer to the pier (but you’d have to get your own transfer from the airport to the hotel the night before). Hotel stays must be booked before June 23, 2017. After this deadline, hotel packages may not be available.

If you book your own flights, flights must arrive at the Vancouver airport no later than TBD Time on 9/17/17 and leave no earlier than TBD Time on 9/24/17.  Round-trip transfers can be purchased for $TBD pp.

NOTE:  You CANNOT book your own air & hotel (to arrive on 9/16/17) and still purchase Celebrity transfers.  If you do everything on your own, you’ll have to find your own transportation to and from the pier.  The Vancouver airport is approx. 16 miles from the pier.
