The Celebrity Distinction
There’s a distinct difference when you travel the world with Celebrity. You’ll notice it on every cruise, on every ship, every time. The proof is in the details that create the foundation for your modern luxury experience.
With over 300 ports of call, Celebrity brings the world to you. Revisit favorite cities or explore bucket list locales. The choice is yours, and it’s one you can make over and over again with so many destinations to choose from.

Globally inspired menus, locally sourced ingredients, food made from scratch and a Michelin-starred chef overseeing it all ensure that our guests enjoy the best culinary experience at sea. From sushi creations with fresh wasabi grated tableside at Sushi on Five, to the Italian ristorante and enoteca Tuscan Grille, our unique culinary creations are fresh, never frozen, and always flavorful. And beverages certainly don’t take a back seat. We’ve got the largest wine list at sea served by world-class sommeliers and unique experiences like hand-crafted cocktails and our ice-topped Martini Bar.
We pride ourselves on our industry-leading design, and every ship across our fleet delivers on innovation, imagination and impeccable style. Enjoy an intimate outdoor oasis at the Lawn Club, featuring a quarter-acre of real grass, or marvel at the soaring two-story Wine Tower in our main restaurant on our Solstice Class ships. Onboard our Millennium Class, unwind in the tranquility of the Persian Garden where you’ll be soothed by billows of steam and tropical rain showers, or take in a film al fresco at the Rooftop Terrace.

The Millennium, Solstice, Xpedition and Edge Classes
Embarking on a quest for perfection: The Millennium Class
In 2000, Celebrity launched the aptly named Celebrity Millennium proudly featuring the industry’s first application of gas turbine engines, which reduced exhaust emissions by up to 95 percent over traditional propulsion systems. Celebrity Millennium and her sister ships—Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Summit and Celebrity Constellation—nearly doubled the line’s capacity in just two years.
Culinary has always been important to us because we know it is an essential part of our guests’ vacation experience. We introduced the concept of specialty dining to the industry with our Millennium Class and have continued to evolve our award-winning culinary offerings ever since. Each Millennium Class ship boasts unmatched dining with the same distinctive, tantalizing dining options found across our fleet like Sushi on Five, Tuscan Grille and Qsine.
Enter Celebrity Solstice Class
Celebrity’s Solstice Class ships take stylish cruising and impeccable service to new heights. They carry forward from the Millennium Class all that exemplifies Celebrity’s commitment to designing stunning ships and crafting inviting onboard experiences for travelers who truly appreciate the finer things.
Celebrity’s Solstice Class features an industry first—The Lawn Club. It’s an outdoor, country club-like venue featuring a lawn of real, lush grass where guests can practice their putting, play lawn games like croquet and bocce ball, or grill on their own in the great outdoors at The Lawn Club Grill. Guests can enjoy a quiet retreat under the sun or stars at the Alcoves, eight cabanas overlooking The Lawn Club and amazing ocean views.
Celebrity’s Solstice Class ships also are the first in the industry to utilize solar technology, with some solar panels serving the dual purpose of providing shade within the Solarium, as well as energy production.
Celebrity Xpedition Class Charts New Territory
2004 saw the launch of Celebrity Xpedition, our luxury mega-yacht offering year-round itineraries to the enchanting Galapagos Islands. These itineraries offer once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for our guests, introducing them to one of the world’s most pristine natural environments.
In 2016 we introduced the Xperience and Xploration, 48- and 16-person vessels adding to our existing Galapagos Islands fleet. Both intimate and spacious these ships deliver an unmatched cruise experience designed to explore the Galapagos Islands in style.
All three vessels offer luxurious amenities and bring the destination onboard. An expert naturalist is onboard every voyage to educate and inspire exploration, and local fishermen supply fresh seafood for an exceptional dining experience.
Shattering Expectations: Introducing the industry-leading Celebrity Edge class
Celebrity Cruises has continually pushed the cruise industry forward with our stunning ships, and we’re doing it again. Introducing Celebrity Edge—the latest breakthrough in modern luxury travel, the first in our new class of ships designed to leave the future behind.
Celebrity Edge marks a turning point in our approach to ship design. From the very first sketches to a new innovative way to experience those designs in a virtual reality setting, every step was done in 3-D. This new technology allowed us to fine tune every detail of the ship like never-before. From the incredible new Magic Carpet to the private plunge pools in our new Edge Villas, we were able to design the most refined ship at sea—before we even started building it.
One of the biggest influences on the design of Edge was our desire to make the destination experience even more immersive—starting right onboard. Celebrity Edge has a unique outward facing design that breaks from traditional ship design to connect you with the sea and the exciting places you’ll visit in a variety of spaces ranging from our Edge Staterooms with Infinite Verandas℠, to our reimagined, terraced pool deck that offers even greater views of the destinations and every glorious shimmer of ocean in-between.
Our visionary approach to the architecture of Celebrity Edge is only one aspect of the story. We also carefully selected a team of the world’s best designers new to the cruise industry, because we wanted to ensure every aspect of Edge would be a departure from traditional thinking about cruising. We wanted a team of world class, internationally renowned designers that would bring a completely fresh perspective to ship design—including Tom Wright of WKK, Kelly Hoppen, MBE, Scott Butler of Wilson Butler Architects, and Patricia Urquiola. Add to the design team our newly appointed Design Ambassador, award-winning interior designer Nate Berkus, and there was nothing standing in our way. Together we collaborated to elevate every aspect of Celebrity Edge’s design to unprecedented new heights. Celebrity Edge is the epitome of design excellence not only at sea, but anywhere in the world.
