About Celebrity Cruises
The Celebrity fleet, marked by an X on the chimney, combines the best aspects of elegant cruises with a modern lifestyle on their ships. The great routes around the world and the international atmosphere are particularly interesting for experienced cruisers. Although it is casual and relaxed during the day, the dress code Smart Casual is expected at the so-called Chic Evenings. Most of the ships in the Celebrity fleet impress in their classic style. The Edge class, on the other hand, also impresses trend-conscious audiences with its innovative design.
The third ship of the luxurious and currently newest Edge class exceeds all expectations. After the sister ship Celebrity Edge was named one of the "World's greatest Places" by Time Magazine in 2019, Celebrity Beyond is now expanding the fleet. One of the great highlights of this ship is the Magic Carpet, a platform about the size of a tennis court that can be moved over 13 decks. Depending on which deck the magic carpet is on, it can serve as an extension of the restaurant, the pool area or the embarkation station. During the day as well as in the evening, the Rooftop Garden is a hotspot on board. The christening ceremony of Celebrity Beyond was held in November 2022. The godmother is the well-known and succesful gymnast Simone Biles.

Celebrity Beyond restaurants
One of the shipping company's greatest quality features is the excellent cuisine. The buffets are also of high quality, as there are numerous show cooking stations where various dishes are freshly prepared. In addition to the 4 main restaurants, there are 8 specialty restaurants on board with a great menu selection. A special highlight is Le Voyage by the 3 Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud. In addition to international culinary highlights, Celebrity Beyond also offers the most award-winning selection of wines at sea. In addition, The Retreat® and the AquaClass® each offer an exclusive restaurant for their guests - for example the Luminae, with an impressive panoramic view. There are a total of 32 different possibilities to explore the most varied of culinary delights on board. Reservations can be made on board.
Entertainment, sports & relaxation
Whether you prefer it quiet or want to party in the disco, all tastes are catered for on board Celebrity Beyond. Among the 14 bars and lounges, the Sunset Bar is a very special highlight. Here, every evening can be brought to a close with a good drink and a fabulous view. Art auctions are held regularly, but the obligatory bingo games can also be found on board. Another special feature is the many interesting lectures about the ports of call. The spa offers numerous pampering and beauty treatments for a fee. A highlight for sports lovers is the jogging track with a fascinating view over the sea. The large pool area with a length of more than 22 metres as well as several whirlpools on deck invites you to swim and bathe afterwards. The new trend sport "pickleball" is also offered on board. The ship has been equipped with the appropriate court for this. You can play individually or take part in smaller tournaments. The new retreats on the pool deck, affectionately called cabanas, offer a wonderful sea view in a private atmosphere.
Celebrity Beyond shore excursions
With the best local experts, you can make your Celebrity Cruise extra special. With culinary discovery tours, private tours that become a very exclusive experience and even multi-day excursions, Celebrity can offer you everything you could wish for. You can book your shore excursion online or directly on board before the cruise begins.
The Celebrity Beyond offers you cruises on a large, luxurious ship at very attractive conditions. The service is outstanding, and the impressive cuisine and service are two hallmarks of Celebrity Cruises. In our opinion, the ship itself is one of the most beautiful, stylish and pleasant ships ever. The additional costs on board (tips, drinks, treatments in the Aqua Spa, etc.) are, as usual on American ships, higher than on many German ships. The audience is international. Overall, you can expect a professionally organized cruise experience of very good quality.
