The line’s new Edge-class vessel, Celebrity Beyond, launches in spring 2022
Celebrity Cruises has revealed the wellness options that will be onboard Celebrity Beyond, the line’s next Edge-class ship.
The new vessel, which launches in spring 2022, features new AquaClass SkySuites, an onboard wellness programme led by industry experts, a partnership with Gwyneth Paltrow’s modern lifestyle brand Goop and classes by the F45 Training.
The spa, designed by Kelly Hoppen, features eight different relaxation rooms and offers more than 120 treatments.
“Wellness is so fundamental to our philosophy that we continue to build and grow a truly special onboard experience where it is woven into every aspect of the guest journey from the stateroom to the spa,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president of Celebrity Cruises. “And, because we’re doing all of this at sea, which is incredibly therapeutic in itself, it becomes a wonderful wellness journey unlike anything in the world.”
“In true Celebrity Cruises fashion, we have chosen to work with best-in-class partners in every category to deliver a holistic programme designed to improve the wellbeing of the guest’s mind, body and spirit,” said Brian Abel, Celebrity’s Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations. “The response to our AquaClass offerings has been phenomenal and we know this new programme, designed for modern travellers, will exceed all expectations.”

The AquaClass Sky Suites, new to Celebrity Beyond, feature floor-to-ceiling ocean views, private balconies and access to special areas of the ship.
