As the cruise industry gains momentum after some difficult few years, Celebrity Cruises Beyond looks to set a new course towards a journey full of what passengers crave. Determined to bring resort style excellence blended with relaxed luxury, the newest ship seeks to not just meet expectations but fulfill them in the most wonderous way.

When people look to escape from the daily grind, there is a mindset that takes over. From the willingness to indulge to the desire to let go, the vacation is meant to have someone else take care of every whim. It may not be a complete fantasy, but it is far from the normal workday.

On Celebrity Cruises, this series of ships are meant to bring relaxed resort luxury to the high seas. From the experienced guests who appreciates the amenities to the new cruiser who is looking for ease of travel, stepping aboard one of these ships comes with the understanding that everything will be provided.

Celebrity Cruises Beyond launches its inaugural season to much fanfare

After a quick stop in New York, Celebrity Cruises Beyond welcomed guests to its naming ceremony on Friday, November 4. The special event saw the ship’s godmother, Simone Biles, christen the Beyond in grand fashion. As Jason Liberty, President and CEO of the Royal Caribbean Group, the parent company of Celebrity Cruises said, “Simone’s determination, progressive nature, empowered attitude, and grace in the face of challenges make her such an inspiration to so many around the world. All of these attributes are why Simone Biles is perfectly suited to watch over Celebrity Beyond’s journey.”

While the play on the concept of “beyond” was captured in many ways, Biles role as godmother continues the brand’s commitment to putting powerful women in the spotlight. From the Beyond’s Captain Kate McCue to Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity Cruises President and CEO, this brand appreciates that strong, powerful women should be celebrated in every capacity. Even as Leona Lewis sang Fire Under My Feet in honor of Biles, the sentiment carries over into all the women who have a part in the success of this ship and the Celebrity Cruises’ success.

As guests explore the many amenities not often found at sea, everyone marveled at what is offered. From the Michelin Star culinary delights from Chef Daniel Boulud to the expertly crafted cocktails from the various bars on board to the wellness options that offer balance to the experience, every detail is addressed. Whether a guest craves a carefully curated experience or prefers a slightly more adventurous approach, there is an option for their craving.

Celebrity Cruises Beyond inaugural season features both Western and Eastern Caribbean itineraries. The stretched ship design features new experiences including Le Voyage from Chef Daniel Boulud and brings back a popular favorite, the World Class Bar. Other Celebrity Cruises signatures like Eden and the Magic Carpet are also featured on Beyond.
