SAINT-NAZAIRE, France – Captain Kate McCue, the first American female cruise ship captain, watches as construction continues on Celebrity Beyond

, the company's third ship in its industry-transforming Edge Series debuting in spring 2022.
will not only hold the title of the largest ship in the fleet, but the distinction as the brand's most luxurious vessel. The ship stands at 17 decks high and 21 meters longer than her innovative predecessors Celebrity Edge
(2018) and Celebrity Apex
's maiden voyage will depart on April 27, 2022, from Southampton, England, for a 10-night Western Europe cruise visiting Bordeaux, France; Lisbon, Portugal; and Seville, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Barcelona, Spain.
