Once again, Celebrity Cruises pushes modern luxury travel forward by redefining what it can be. As the brand that launched the revolutionary and award-winning Solstice Class ships, with their industry-first half acre of real grass lawn at sea, followed by the multi-million dollar “Solsticizing” of its Millennium Class ships, Celebrity continues to showcase why their brand is distinctively different and truly leading-edge.
Travelers continue to choose Celebrity because they’re skilled in blending cultural exploration with lavish accommodation, world-class cuisines and hospitality that can only be summed up as the Celebrity Distinction – an unwavering commitment to consistently provide a vacation experience unlike any other.
Keep reading to about the “Celebrity Distinction” and how it signifies a new way of traveling by sea.

Sail with Celebrity Cruises and Experience the “Celebrity Distinction”
In addition, Celebrity announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with French Shipbuilder STX France to build four Edge-class ships scheduled for delivery in 2018, 2020, 2021 and 2022. Solstice-class ushered in a new era of design for modern cruise ships, and Edge-class will not disappoint as the new generation of high style and design.
Lutoff-Perlo, stated: “We are purposely different because we hold a unique position in modern luxury travel, having re-defined what luxury is. It felt natural for us to define the incredible experiences we offer under the singular umbrella of The Celebrity Distinction. We will continue to innovate, pushing modern luxury to a new level. We have only just begun.”
Celebrity will continue to push the boundaries of what is possible at sea while offering a truly modern luxury experience for you.
