There’s no better way to see the pristine Alaskan wilderness than onboard Celebrity Edge, which was specifically designed to create a closer connection between guests and destinations” said Laura Hodges Bethge, President of Celebrity Cruises. “Our elevated vacation options are redefining travel, especially in this region.” 

Through September 2024, guests can enjoy the beautiful views of Alaska from the comfort of one of Celebrity’s largest and newest ships. Some highlights of the vessel include:

  • Accommodations including two-story Edge Villas with plunge pools and staterooms with infinite balconies
  • The Retreat, an exclusive area for suite guests that features a private restaurant, lounge, and sundeck, as well as a dedicated team of butlers, attendants, and concierges
  • 29 restaurants, bars, and lounges featuring globally-inspired menus
  • Unique spaces including The Magic Carpet cantilevered platform, which changes purposes depending on which deck it’s on

Celebrity Edge, Summit, and Solstice together will offer 57 sailings on a variety of six and seven-night itineraries to Alaska from May to September of this year.

Celebrity Edge will offer both roundtrip from Seattle and one-way voyages between Vancouver and Seattle that are six and seven-nights long. Itineraries include visits to some of the region’s top spots, with experiences in Ketchikan also known as the “Salmon Capital of the World;” Endicott Arm to spot the local wildlife including brown bears, bald eagles, sea ducks, deer, moose, and wolves; Alaska’s capital Juneau; and Skagway. The ship then visits Victoria via the Inside Passage before heading back to Seattle.
