Celebrity Cruises has announced that its fifth Edge Series ship will be named Celebrity Xcel.

The reveal was made at a steel cutting ceremony at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in France.

“The Edge Series has shattered preconceived notions of cruising, and I am thrilled to announce our next bold step as a brand with Celebrity Xcel,” said Celebrity Cruises’ President Laura Hodges Bethge.

“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.” 

Celebrity Xcel will make her debut in November 2025 in the Caribbean, sailing her inaugural winter season from Fort Lauderdale, on seven-night itineraries alternating between the Bahamas, Mexico and the Cayman Islands, and Puerto Plata, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten.

The cruise are now open for sale. 

Sister ship Celebrity Ascent will debut on 3 December.
