Celebrity Cruises – Celebrity Ascent is coming at the end of the year


June 14, 2023 – If everything goes according to plan, on December 3, 2023 the brand new Celebrity Ascent starts from Fort Lauderdale/Florida on her maiden voyage. This takes the ship and its guests through the eastern Caribbean for eight days. The new building tours the Caribbean throughout the winter. From April 27, 2024, the Celebrity Ascent will be sailing in the Mediterranean.

With the Celebrity Ascent, the fourth ship of the "Edge Class" will be put into service in the winter. Unlike the first two Edge-class sister ships, Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Ascent is 327 meters long; 21 meters longer than its predecessors. It is the same size as Celebrity Beyond. The premium shipping company, which is part of the Royal Caribbean Group, has just provided an insight into the innovations of the future flagship. As expected, the cruise ship, designed for a maximum of 3.260 guests, scores with new culinary highlights and expanded entertainment and art experiences.
