The cruise line is, once again, making waves with the anticipation of their newest ship, which will transport guests to some of the Caribbean‘s most sought-after destinations during the 2023-2024 season: including the Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Puerto Rico, and the British Virgin Islands.
Following this, Celebrity Ascent will depart to Europe for a sunshine-filled summer of bucket-list Mediterranean itineraries in Greece, Italy, Turkey, Spain and France.
Guests sailing onboard the new ship will be able to enjoy the signature experiences featured on the cruise line’s Edge Series vessels, such as its outward-facing design, an enticing food and beverage programme with over 30 choices, plus spacious and sleek staterooms catering for all travellers- from solo adventurers and couples, to multi-generational families.
“I am so excited to introduce the world to Celebrity Ascent and continue the legacy of Celebrity’s Edge Series. First launched in 2018, the Edge Series transformed what cruising could be and its ships like Edge, Apex and Beyond quickly became consumer favourites. Continuously striving to offer travellers a better way to enjoy travel and reach the world around them, we are so proud of what we have built and look forward to welcoming both seasoned and new cruisers alike.”Celebrity Cruises’ President, Laura Hodges Bethge
