The Future of Elevated Travel At Sea Is Here

We started construction on our fifth Edge Series ship, Celebrity Xcel at a keel laying ceremony at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. We can’t wait to tell you about all the new venues and experiences we’ve planned for you aboard this incredible ship. Celebrity Xcel sets sail in the fall of 2025, and like the rest of our fleet, it will elevate your vacation at sea like no one else can.

Nothing Comes Close to Celebrity Cruises.
