Celebrity Cruises took delivery of its 3rd and “most luxurious” Edge-class vessel in an official ceremony in southern France.

Celebrity Beyond is the 3rd in a series of 5 Edge-class passenger liners with sisterships Celebrity Edge (2018), Celebrity Apex (2021), Celebrity Ascent (2023), and TBN2 (2025). Celebrity Apex was initially to be named "Celebrity Beyond", but her name was changed during the vessel's construction.

Celebrity Beyond was handed over to the company’s chief executive Lisa Lutoff-Perlo on Wednesday, April 6, alongside Royal Caribbean Group (RCG) chief executive Jason Liberty and the captain of the ship, Kate McCue.

The official ceremony was the first to be held in person at Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard (Saint-Nazaire/STX France) since the COVID crisis.
