Celebrity Cruises takes delivery of Celebrity Beyond

Celebrity ushers in a new era of travel with Beyond, celebrating industry’s first physical delivery ceremony since the pandemic, as the brand officially took ownership of the ship from shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique on 6 April 2022.

Lutoff-Perlo honored the thousands of engineers, architects, designers, contractors, shipyard employees and Celebrity Cruises teams as the brand took delivery of Celebrity Beyond, the third and most luxurious ship in the fleet’s new-luxury Edge Series.

The moment was particularly special as it marked the industry’s first physical delivery ceremony since the pandemic.

Lutoff-Perlo was joined by Royal Caribbean Group’s President and CEO Jason Liberty and the ship’s captain, Kate McCue, as they officially took ownership from the shipyard and completed the traditional changing of the flags, hosting a celebratory ceremony onboard Celebrity Beyond while docked in the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire.

The momentous occasion was celebrated alongside other Celebrity Cruises executives, shipyard officials including General Manager Laurent Castaing, and Beyond’s 1,400 crew members from over 60 different countries.

Celebrity Beyond’s maiden voyage will depart on 27 April 2022, from Southampton, for a 10-night Western Europe cruise visiting Bordeaux, France; Lisbon, Portugal; and Seville, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Barcelona, Spain.

She will then offer a variety of Mediterranean journeys including nine-night Italian Riviera and France itineraries and 10-night Greek Isles itineraries through early October, when she then heads to the Caribbean.
