Celebrity Cruises Announces Maiden Alaska Voyage for ‘Celebrity Edge’

Celebrity Cruises has announced that – for the first time ever – its Celebrity Edge ship, which introduced the revolutionary outward-facing design, will call Alaska home for the summer.

Celebrity Edge will sail roundtrip from Seattle and one-way between Vancouver to Seattle on six- and seven-night journeys.

Itineraries include visits to the region’s top spots, with experiences in Ketchikan also known as the “Salmon Capital of the World,” the Endicott Arm to spot the local wildlife including brown bears, bald eagles, sea ducks, deer, moose, and wolves, Alaska’s capital Juneau and Skagway before heading to Victoria through the Inside Passage and then returning to Seattle.

“There’s no better way to see the pristine Alaskan wilderness than onboard Celebrity Edge, which was specifically designed to create a closer connection between guests and destinations,” said Laura Hodges Bethge, President of Celebrity Cruises.

“Our elevated vacation options are redefining travel, especially in this region.”

Some of the features guests of Celebrity Edge can indulge in include:

  • Transformational accommodations, from modern two-story Edge Villas with plunge pools to staterooms with Infinite Verandas. Blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living, the Infinite Veranda takes you right to the water’s edge, giving guests open air access to the sea with the touch of a button.
  • The Retreat, exclusive to all suite guests, with its private restaurant, and exclusive lounge and sundeck. In addition, a dedicated team of butlers, attendants, and concierges on-hand 24/7, ensures everything is taken care of while on vacation.
  • An unrivalled culinary repertoire of 29 distinct restaurants, bars, and lounges connecting guests to the destinations they will visit like never before. Globally inspired menus crafted by a Michelin-star chef bring the flavors of the world straight to the plate, providing an epicurean journey unmatched at sea.
  • Unique spaces unlike anything else at sea, including The Magic Carpet – the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform, soaring above the sea – and Eden – three levels of sensory experiences wrapped in glass, both offer a mix of culinary and entertainment options with panoramic views.
  • Multi-use, transformative spaces to gather, such as The Grand Plaza offering a majestic, open, three-story venue inspired by the piazzas of Italy and housing incredible specialty restaurants, the popular Martini Bar, Cafe al Bacio, and the new Grand Plaza Cafe.

Celebrity’s award-winning ships, Celebrity EdgeCelebrity Summit and Celebrity Solstice, will offer 57 sailings and an array of six- to seven-night itineraries from May to September 2024.
