Celebrity Cruises just made a HUGE announcement with the name drop of their newest upcoming Edge Class ship - Celebrity Xcel! She will begin sailings in November 2025, with incredible itineraries to beautiful destinations around the world including the Bahamas, Bermuda, Europa, Asia, Alaska, and more. And if the name release wasn't enough, she is now open for bookings for the 2025-2026 season!
The suites and staterooms onboard Xcel will sell out fast, especially those in the coveted Retreat, so be sure to reach out to Harr Travel to book today!
With overnight stays in more than 25 cities, Xcel will be visiting destinations Celebrity has not yet been to, and even more counties than before! Her debut in November 2025 will see 7-day cruises to locations such as the Bahamas, Mexico, the Cayman Islands, St. Maarten, and Puerto Plata, St. Thomas.
"The Edge Series has shattered preconceived notions of cruising. I am thrilled to announce our next bold step as a brand with Celebrity Xcel." Laura Hodges Bethge, President of Celebrity Cruises said in a statement, "True to her name, this next ship will ‘Xcel’ beyond her sister ships with entirely new experiences, yet to be revealed, but that will change the game all over again.”
With gorgeous venues including an expanded Rooftop Garden, a multi-level Sunset Bar, Daniel Boulud fine-dining restaurant, and the return of the Magic Carpet, it is not difficult to see that Xcel will be taking the Edge Class to the next level. Xcel is bringing all the Edge Class favorites to one ship, as well as offering new experiences that are sure to delight Celebrity fans. At Harr Travel we are excited for all the upcoming announcements about Xcel in the coming weeks to see what's new, and what's returning on this beautiful ship.
