New ship gets Xcel-ent name

Celebrity reveals latest fleet addition

Celebrity Cruises have revealed the name of the fifth ship in its Edge Series.

Launching in November 2025 in the Caribbean, Celebrity Xcel will embark on seven-night itineraries between the Bahamas, Mexico and the Cayman Islands.

The name was unveiled during a ceremony at the shipyard in France where the first piece of steel was cut.

“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,” said Laura Hodges Bethge, President Carnival Cruises.

Among the distinctive features onboard the new ship will be:

  • The Retreat. A resort within a resort for suite guests, highlighted by a two-storey sundeck
  • Modern two-storey villas with private plunge pools and staterooms with infinite verandas
  • A multi-level, multi-terraced Sunset Bar redefining the ship’s aft
  • An expanded rooftop garden and Resort Deck featuring cantilevered float pools
  • A Daniel Boulud fine-dining restaurant
