Celebrity Cruises’ newest Edge ship Celebrity Xcel is the latest in the cruise line’s award-winning and innovative series of vessels and is set to provide cruisers with an even more exceptional experience at sea when she debuts in November 2025.
Royal Caribbean Group executives revealed the new ship’s name at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France during the first steel cutting.
Celebrity Xcel will debut in November 2025 in the Caribbean, sailing her inaugural winter season from Fort Lauderdale.
Seven-night itineraries alternating between the Bahamas, Mexico and the Cayman Islands and Puerto Plata, St Thomas and St Maarten are now open for sale.
Celebrity Cruises President Laura Hodges Bethge said: “True to her name, this next ship will ‘Xcel’ beyond her sister ships with entirely new experiences, yet to be revealed, that will change the game all over again.”
Like sister ship Celebrity Ascent, debuting in late November 2023, Celebrity Xcel will offer onboard experiences such as The Retreat resort-within-a-resort area and an expanded Rooftop Garden.
Exclusive bar and dining options include a Daniel Boulud fine-dining restaurant at sea and a multi-level Sunset Bar.
Celebrity Xcel will also feature The Magic Carpet – the world’s first cantilevered lounge and gathering space at sea, and the Resort Deck, a main pool lined with cabanas and a two-storey martini-glass-shaped hot tub.
