Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrated New Edge Vessel Nears Completion
On a beautiful, sunny day in France, Celebrity AscentSM, the fourth ship in Celebrity Cruises’ industry-transforming Edge Series®, officially touched water for the first time today, as she was
floated out from the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire. The moment marks the exciting completion of the ship’s hull and exterior superstructure, and the vessel now progresses to the next phase of construction.
Debuting in December 2023, Celebrity Ascent will be the “twin sister” ship to Celebrity Beyond, which debuted last spring to stellar reviews.
Travelers aboard Celebrity Ascent will enjoy signature experiences found exclusively onboard the Celebrity Cruises Edge Series ships, including:
- Unparalleled accommodations including legendary two-story Edge Villa staterooms with direct access to the exclusive suite-only The Retreat Sun Deck, as well as Infinite Veranda staterooms that transform into open-air verandas, among the largest at sea.
- Inspirational views from the iconic Magic Carpet – the world’s first cantilevered cruise ship experience from bow to stern as a result of the unique outward-facing ship design.
- Unequalled relaxation, design and luxury starting with a sprawling Nate Berkus-designed Sunset Bar; a world-class Resort Deck with exclusive cabanas, infinity-edge plunge pools and two-story Martini-shaped hot tubs.
- Exceptional culinary options with more than 30 distinct food and drink venues, including the high-tech, immersive Le Petit Chef Dinner Experience; the Eden Restaurant offering its three-story floor-to-ceiling windows, inventive, mixology-focused cocktails and unforgettable globally-inspired dishes from around the world; and the incomparable Le Voyage by Daniel Boulud, featuring the most exquisite cuisine at sea.
Celebrity Ascent is now mooring in her new shipyard location, where interior work on the ship will commence and continue over the next several months.
