Welcome Beyond

This month, we celebrated the official U.S. inaugural season for Celebrity Beyond℠. The festivities included the ship’s official naming ceremony, led by Godmother Simone Biles, a 19-time World Champion, seven-time Olympic medalist, and most decorated American gymnast in history. Also in attendance were Lisa Luttoff Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises®; Jason Liberty, President and CEO of the Royal Caribbean Group (the parent company of Celebrity Cruises); and Captain Kate McCue, the first American female captain of a large cruise ship. Celebrity Beyond kicks off its inaugural season with rotating Western and Eastern Caribbean itineraries visiting the sun-soaked shores of Grand Cayman, Puerta Plata, and beyond. This stunning ship takes our innovative outward-facing design further than ever, creating an even closer connection between you, the sea, and every exciting place on the horizon. We’re thrilled to share exciting photos and videos of Celebrity Beyond’s naming.

Last month, we hosted a taping of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” on board Celebrity Beyond. Andy Cohen and all five captains from Bravo’s Below Deck franchise—Captain Lee Rosbach, Captain Sandy Yawn, Captain Glenn Shepard, Captain Jason Chambers, and Captain Kerry Titheradge—plus, our very own Captain Kate McCue participated in the show. The episode aired on Tuesday, November 1, on Bravo and is available to stream on Peacock. We’ve also included some behind the scenes footage, so you can “watch what happens” for yourself.

Our 2024/2025 season of sailings has something for every type of traveler—from first-time, year-round sailings in Asia and Europe to the first Celebrity Edge® Series ship in Alaska. From Celebrity Apex® sailing from Southampton to Iceland, and every incredible place in between, to new itineraries in the sun-drenched Caribbean, including new weekend sailings for those quick and rejuvenating trips to paradise. 

We’re even letting you know which sailings will be visiting cities while they feature iconic world events that you might be interested in attending while you’re there. We’ve never been more excited to introduce you to the world aboard a breathtaking Relaxed Luxury℠ resort at sea. Our Asia, Alaska, Australia & New Zealand, and Celebrity Apex® sailings from Southampton are now available for booking. South America opens for booking on November 29; Europe opens December 8; and the Caribbean and Bermuda seasons will be available beginning December 13.

The Awards Keep Pouring In

We’re excited to announce that we were awarded 57 Magellan Awards by Travel Weekly in 2022—more than any other cruise line this year. That’s pretty incredible, and we couldn’t do it without you. This also marks the second consecutive year we took home a Gold Award for our loyalty program in the Cruise Marketing category. Talk about a win-win.
