Celebrity Cruises – the entertainment of the Celebrity Ascent


October 26, 2023 – Celebrity Cruises' new flagship, Celebrity Ascent, officially begins service on December 3, 2023. There are two short trips on the program beforehand. In the first few months, the ship will travel from the start and destination port of Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale) to the Eastern Caribbean. The premium shipping company has just presented the entertainment program for the new building.

USA Today, the US newspaper with the highest circulation, named its sister ship Celebrity Beyond the best cruise ship for entertainment this year. Such an assessment is obligatory. Those responsible for entertainment on the Ascent were challenged. The result of their efforts in brief: a new open-air night show on the Resort Deck, six new live productions, captivating performances and lots of interactive games.

Under the title "Ascent After Dark: Shine the Night” the resort deck transforms into a dance floor after dark. As an encore there will be live performances and a prism light show. A DJ accompanies the dancing couples and ensures a good atmosphere.
