For the debut of Celebrity Ascent this December, Celebrity Cruises has worked with a range of creative leaders, who have worked on major productions in Las Vegas and the West End, to produce an array of glittering new entertainment, activities and experiences for guests sailing with the new ship.
“We embraced the opportunity with Celebrity Ascent to take our entertainment offering to an even higher level for our guests, handpicking the best creative minds to deliver a world-class program that solidifies Celebrity’s reputation for onboard entertainment that stuns.
We are so excited to show guests how our new entertainment offering can level up their vacation in ways they’ve never experienced before. With elements our guests love plus some new surprises, Ascent offers something for everyone and adds to the memories they will have for a lifetime.”Lisa Lehr, Celebrity’s Vice President, Entertainment
Highlights from the new entertainment roster include:
Signature Resort Deck Party
Celebrity Ascent’s Resort Deck will transform into a nightlife hotspot, named Ascent After Dark: Shine the Night, and host high-energy live performances, a prism light show, and DJ sets. Guests will be encouraged to don their very best sparkly outfits and enjoy a pulsating evening onboard under the moon and stars during this event.
Fresh Theatre Shows
Blinding new production shows will be hosted in Celebrity Ascent’s Theatre, a tech-filled space kitted out with kinetic lighting, lasers and a massive LED screen, blurring the lines between digital effects and reality. New shows include Awaken, a sensory showcase of surreal dreams, and Residency, a loud and energetic concert show paying homage to renowned artists and Las Vegas residencies from Elvis to Lady Gaga, and Bridges, a heart-warming tale of human connection set against the backdrop of some of the world’s most iconic bridges.
