“We always reach for the stars at Celebrity Cruises, whether it’s in our exceptional level of service, our innovative ship design, or the highest quality of relaxed luxury experiences we provide onboard. To now be Star-rated multiple times over is such an incredible honor from the Forbes Travel Guide team. It’s confirmation that with our resorts at sea, our guests truly sail on the world’s best places to the world’s best places,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “I’d like to congratulate the entire Celebrity family, both at sea and shoreside, for this special recognition. I celebrate each and every one of you and thank you for your dedication and commitment to delivering the best vacations at sea.”

“Forbes Travel Guide is thrilled to announce Celebrity ships as the world’s first Star-Rated resorts at sea in the new ocean cruise category,” said Hermann Elger, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “Celebrity has delivered on Forbes Travel Guide’s standards time and time again during meticulous incognito inspections – offering guests experiences that rival those at the very best land-based properties. We congratulate Celebrity Cruises on this spectacular and historic accomplishment.”

The Edge class ships from Celebrity Cruises are the newest in their fleet with Celebrity Edge earning Recommended awards and Celebrity Apex Four-Stars.

Celebrity has been upgrading their oldest class of ships, the Millennium class, over the past few years with Celebrity Millennium winning the Four-Star award and Celebrity Summit the Recommended award.

The cruise line’s mega yacht, Celebrity Flora, offers expedition cruises to the Galapagos and is one of the most eco-friendly ships at sea. This vessel earned Four-Stars from Forbes.
