Here’s a sneak peek at Celebrity Ascent, launching November 2023

MIAMI — Celebrity Cruises has unveiled first-ever details about the highly anticipated Celebrity Ascent, coming this November.

As the fourth ship in Celebrity’s Edge Series, Celebrity Ascent will be based in South Florida for the 2023-2024 Caribbean season, cruising out of Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale from December 2023 to April 2024. The stunning new ship will transport guests to destinations throughout the Caribbean, including The Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands before departing to Europe for a summer of Mediterranean cruises in Greece, Italy, Turkey, Spain and France.

While on board, guests will enjoy all the signature experiences of Celebrity’s Edge Series ships, including an industry-first outward facing design that maximizes views and outdoor areas, a robust food and beverage program with over 30 dining choices, and spacious staterooms that accommodate solo cruisers, couples and multi-generational family groups.

“I am so excited to introduce the world to Celebrity Ascent and continue the legacy of Celebrity’s Edge Series,” says Celebrity Cruises’ President, Laura Hodges Bethge. “First launched in 2018, the Edge Series transformed what cruising could be and its ships like Edge, Apex and Beyond quickly became consumer favourites. Continuously striving to offer travellers a better way to enjoy travel and reach the world around them, we are so proud of what we have built and look forward to welcoming both seasoned and new cruisers alike.”
