Celebrity Cruises Reveals Celebrity Ascent Details

Celebrity Cruises has unveiled details about what travellers can expect to experience on board its newest ship, Celebrity Ascent, once it launches this November.

Celebrity Ascent is the cruise line’s fourth Edge Series ship and it 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 new ship will transport guests to Caribbean destinations that include 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.

On board Celebrity Ascent, guests will enjoy the signature experiences of the brand’s Edge Series ships, including its industry-first outward facing design that maximizes views and outdoor areas allowing guests to connect with the world around them, a robust food and beverage program with 30 plus choices from casual to fine dining to satisfy all palates, plus spacious and sleek staterooms in a breadth of accommodation options catering to all travelers from solo adventurers and couples, to multi-generational family groups.

Celebrity Cruises’ President, Laura Hodges Bethge, said: “I am so excited to introduce the world to Celebrity Ascent and continue the legacy of Celebrity’s Edge Series. First launched in 2018, the Edge Series transformed what cruising could be and its ships like Edge, Apex and Beyond quickly became consumer favorites. Continuously striving to offer travelers 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.”
