The latest Edge-class ship from Celebrity Cruises, Celebrity Beyond, has successfully completed its sea trials.
Celebrity Beyond conducted the trials in the Bay of Biscay, near the Chantiers de l’ Atlantique shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France.
The ship is set to make its debut on 27 April 2022, sailing from Southampton.
Celebrity Cruises president and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said: “I can’t tell you how excited I am to have completed this important milestone as it brings us that much closer to welcoming our guests on board.
“Beyond showed why there is so much more to her than just her looks. Like her sister ships – Celebrity Apex and Celebrity Edge – she went beyond what was needed to demonstrate she’s ready.”
Captain Kate McCue added: “Successfully completing these sea trials was a thrill of a lifetime for me.
“Her smooth sailing and manoeuvrability is a testament to her innovative design and I can’t wait to take the helm of this awe-inspiring ship and take our guests to equally beautiful destinations.”
Get on board Celebrity Beyond
Celebrity Beyond is the next ship in the Celebrity Edge class, joining sister ships Celebrity Apex and Celebrity Edge.
On board, guests can expect to find new spaces and an outwards-facing design, including the Magic Carpet, the cantilevered floating platform on the side of the ship that moves between decks.
