Recently, Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo announced Captain Kate McCue will take the helm of Celebrity Beyond℠ in spring 2022. Captain Kate has been a pioneer and trailblazer, breaking the gender barrier in 2015 when Lutoff-Perlo named her to be the first—and still only—American female to captain a major cruise ship (Celebrity Summit®). On March 8, 2020, McCue captained the history-making, barrier-breaking sailing on Celebrity Edge® that comprised a cruise ship’s first-ever all-female bridge and officer team. Captain Kate also led the Celebrity fleet—and the industry—back into operation when Celebrity Edge became the first cruise ship to sail with guests from a U.S. port in more than a year due to the pandemic. McCue has inspired others to shoot for the stars and encouraged people from all walks of life to follow their dreams. She’s also become a social media celebrity, with nearly 3.5 million followers across TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube.
We were thrilled to sponsor Miami Beach Pride for the fourth year in a row. Incredible performances by the headline entertainers on board our ships took place throughout the weekend at the VIP Gala, Pride Festival, and the Pride Parade. Plus, more than 30 employees, along with their friends and families, marched with the Celebrity Cruises float in the parade.
“Our ‘mini-moon’ UK cruise from Southampton was just as amazing as we hoped. Celebrity Silhouette looked fantastic following its revolution. This was our first cruise since October 2019 and just our second time in AquaClass. We received such a warm welcome and were even recognised by members of the crew from past cruises. The food and service in Blu was exceptional and our time in the Persian Garden was so relaxing. We ate at Le Petit Chef for the first time and the team arranged a little surprise for us. What an amazing experience! We can’t wait for our next cruise with Celebrity for our honeymoon this January 2022 on board Celebrity Constellation.”
