Celebrity Cruises has announced that two brothers will serve as co-captains of Celebrity Ascent, their next new cruise ship that will debut later this year.
Greek brothers Dimitrios and Tasos Kafetzis have been named co-captains of Celebrity Ascent, the cruise line’s fourth ship in its industry-transforming Edge class.
Celebrity Cruises President and CEO, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, said that the brothers are “our star-powered siblings, a maritime dream team.”
The accomplished maritime brothers will usher in a new era for Celebrity Cruises, taking the helm of the line’s newest relaxed luxury resort at sea, which has been brought to life by a team of modern lifestyle icons including multi-award-winning British designer Kelly Hoppen CBE; celebrated American designer Nate Berkus and Michelin starred chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud.
Celebrity Ascent will debut on December 3, 2023 and sail a season to the Caribbean out of Ft. Lauderdale before heading to Europe for the 2024 summer season.
