Celebrity Cruises has revealed that its next Edge-class ship will sail its maiden voyage from Southampton in April 2022.

Celebrity Beyond – a sister ship to Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Apex – will depart on 27 April for a 10-night Western Europe cruise visiting Bordeaux, Lisbon,  Seville, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Barcelona.

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

Celebrity also announced that actor Gwyneth Paltrow will act as the line’s wellbeing advisor.

Celebrity Cruises president and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said: “Celebrity Cruises has always been an innovator at sea, and now we have challenged the status quo with a vessel that goes beyond expectations, beyond imagination.

“Celebrity Beyond shatters any and every preconceived notion of the cruising experience. This exquisite ship offers a journey at the intersection of elegance and approachability filled with what’s important to our guests today: forward-thinking design, culinary excellence, unparalleled wellbeing and incomparable service.”

Royal Caribbean Group chairman Richard Fain added: “With Celebrity Beyond, we saw an opportunity to take the extraordinary features of Celebrity Edge, like the focus on the connection with the ocean and the grand spaces, and really amplify them.

“We focused on providing more openness, height and spaciousness throughout the ship’s most popular spaces. The end result is a next-generation ship that embodies the intersection of architecture and design.”

Celebrity is planning to operate domestic cruises on Celebrity Silhouette this summer.

The ship – which had an extensive refit last year – will set sail from Southampton from 3 July for six to eight-night itineraries. All guests aged 18 and over must be vaccinated against Covid-19, while those under the age of 18 will need a negative PCR test result.
