Share The Article

If you're looking for an unforgettable luxurious experience at sea, you can now book the first sailings of Celebrity Cruises' newest ship, the Celebrity Ascent.

Celebrity Cruises Newest Ship

Celebrity Cruises, which is a subsidiary of Royal Caribbean, is known for being a luxury, high-end cruise line that offers travelers an elevated cruising experience.

You can sail to destinations around the world on Celebrity Cruises, with itineraries on all seven continents. The style and decor on Celebrity Cruises' ships are sleek and modern, feeling more like a luxury boutique hotel than a traditional cruise ship.

Celebrity Cruises Dining Room

One of the biggest benefits of Celebrity Cruises is its “All Included” pricing. Unlike the majority of other cruise lines, your cruise fare with Celebrity Cruises includes unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, WiFi for the duration of your voyage, and all tips and gratuities.

Although Celebrity Cruises is a luxury cruise line, you can often score good deals that make the price comparable to another cruise line – but with so much more included.

Celebrity Cruises' Newest Ship

Currently, Celebrity Cruises has 15 ships, ranging from extremely small luxury ships with a capacity for just 100 passengers or less to larger ships that can accommodate 2,000 to 3,000 passengers.

Celebrity Cruises' newest ship, the Celebrity Ascent, will be the largest ship in their fleet, with a capacity of 3,950 passengers.

Part of the cruise line's Edge class, this ship boasts more than 30 unique dining options, including restaurants, bars, and lounges. It also offers nightly entertainment, several swimming pools (including an adults-only pool), a rooftop garden, a luxury spa and fitness center, and more.

This ship also has a private, ultra-luxurious section which is reserved exclusively for guests in The Retreat, an all-suites accommodation area. Guests in The Retreat will enjoy a private pool, sundeck, bar, restaurant, lounge, and other amenities.

Where Will The Celebrity Ascent Sail?

The Celebrity Ascent will officially begin sailing in December 2023, but travelers have a chance to preview this ship on one of two early sailings.

Once the normal schedule begins, this ship will make sailings in the Caribbean during the winter and spring of 2024 before moving to Europe for sailings in the summer and fall of 2024.

A full listing of the Celebrity Ascent‘s upcoming itineraries can be found on the Celebrity Cruises website.

How You Can Preview The New Ship

Celebrity Cruises has announced two preview sailings that will occur before the Celebrity Ascent officially starts its voyages in December 2023.

The two preview sailings will depart from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Guests can choose between two itineraries in November 2023 to preview the ship:

  • 4-night Western Caribbean itinerary on November 22, 2023, to Cozumel, Mexico
  • 3-night Bahamas cruise on November 26, 2023, and visiting Nassau, Bahamas
Cozumel Mexico

These shorter preview cruises are a great way to experience Celebrity Cruises' newest ship and get a taste of what the cruise line has to offer.

According to Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, “This ship is going to be beautiful beyond words – truly the embodiment of a relaxed luxury resort at sea – and I’m thrilled to be able to offer travelers a sneak peek of all that she offers.”
