The 2025-26 program includes new ports in Europe; the debut Caribbean season for the fifth ship in the Edge Series, the Celebrity Xcel; and new experiences in 29 cities.

“We’ve placed our incredible ships in every corner of the world for guests to experience iconic places, take a short break to rejuvenate, or explore stunning cultural and historic landmarks. Our 2025-26 season is filled with opportunities to experience multiple countries through our Caribbean and European programs, visit bucket list destinations with sailings like our immersive Japan program and more.  Celebrity’s future vacation options are endless,” said Laura Hodges Bethge, president of Celebrity Cruises.  

Celebrity’s new Europe offerings include six ships, visiting nearly 100 destinations with 48 overnight stays. The Celebrity Apex will return to Southampton for its second season, with more Arctic Circle and Norwegian Fjords adventures.

The Celebrity Ascent will take guests to explore the cruise line’s newest port in the Mediterranean on seven- to 11-night itineraries to Bar, Montenegro.
