Guests can enjoy a taste of relaxed luxury on sneak peek sailings to the Bahamas or the Caribbean aboard Celebrity Ascent ahead of her official maiden voyage.
Celebrity Cruises is giving travelers the chance to sample a taste of relaxed luxury at sea on board the brand-new Celebrity Ascent, the fourth ship in the industry-transforming Edge Series.
The two exclusive preview sailings, prior to her official maiden voyage, will take enthousiasts on either a four-night Western Caribbean or three-night Bahamas cruise. The four-night Western Caribbean itinerary departs Port Everglades on November 22, 2023, and takes guests to Cozumel, Mexico over the American Thanksgiving holiday. The second voyage, a three-night Bahamas cruise, departs Port Everglades on November 26, 2023 and visits the lively street markets of Nassau, Bahamas.
“This ship is going to be beautiful beyond words – truly the embodiment of a relaxed luxury resort at sea – and I’m thrilled to be able to offer travelers a sneak peek of all that she offers,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “These sampler sailings will cement in our guests’ hearts that the experience onboard a Celebrity ship goes beyond being a traditional cruise line, and they will definitely leave them wanting more in the year ahead!”
The ‘twin sister’ of Celebrity Beyond in every way and more, Celebrity Ascent, is designed by a team of modern lifestyle icons including multi-award-winning British designer Kelly Hoppen CBE; celebrated American designer Nate Berkus; lauded Paris-based design firm Jouin Manku; innovative British architect Tom Wright; and Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud.
