Celebrity has consistently had some of the most beautiful and best-designed ships in the industry, true contemporary stunners. Everything — from the extraordinary spa facilities to the half-acre of grass on the line's five Solstice-class ships, to the martini bars and romantic seating areas with egg-shaped chairs and daybeds — is tasteful with a modern edge. It's a design aesthetic that has influenced the rest of the industry, too, and ships by other lines have featured style choices that seem ripped right from Solstice.
The cruise line upped its chic quotient even further when it introduced its Edge Series of ships in 2018. These five vessels — Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Beyond, Celebrity Ascent, and Celebrity Xcel (slated to debut in late 2025) — feature a dazzling atrium called the Grand Plaza, a unique multilevel and multipurpose space called Eden, a tangerine-hued bar and dining capsule called The Magic Carpet that rises and lowers on one side of the ship, a whimsical Rooftop Garden, and The Retreat, a suite enclave with modern panache. Celebrity also kept the Solarium, an adults-only indoor pool and bar space that’s a popular spot to relax.
Even Celebrity’s four older Millennium-class ships have been refurbished with Solstice- and Edge-class amenities. For those seeking a more nature-centric cruise experience, Celebrity also operates three smaller vessels (Celebrity Flora, Celebrity Xpedition, and Celebrity Xploration) in the Galapagos Islands.
