We open up the world. Encouraging people to spread their wings beyond their own borders to more than 300 destinations across all seven continents.

From start to finish, we’ll wrap you in award-winning modern luxury – our distinctive blend of stylish design, culinary excellence, luxurious accommodation and intuitive service.


Our latest design masterpiece is Celebrity Edge, the first of a revolutionary new class of ship that overturns convention with a unique outward-facing layout to better focus on the sea and destination. By challenging accepted thinking, we created innovative spaces like the new Infinite Balcony staterooms where indoor and outdoor areas combine at the touch of a button. Another world-first is the Magic Carpet, a tennis court sized structure overhanging the ship’s side that transforms into a different venue at four decks on its flight from sea level to ship’s top. Celebrity Edge leaves the future far behind.
