With as many as 16 cruise ships, Celebrity Cruises offers a wide range of luxury cruises in a fresh and contemporary style. In autumn 2023, the Celebrity Ascent was added. Identical in terms of construction to the Celebrity Beyond, this ship has nothing but superlatives.  The 18 restaurants provide culinary delights around the clock, in the Martini Bar you sit under a large LED candelabra, the Grand Plaza extends over three levels, and it is immediately the ideal place for an extraordinary ambiance. But the eye-catcher is undoubtedly the Magic Carpet. This orange platform the size of a tennis court moves along the starboard side of the ship from top to bottom and acts as a high-end designer restaurant. You will also find such a Magic Carpet on the other 3 Edge-class ships.


But Celebrity is changing the game again. They are introducing a new ship that excels in a class of its own. Celebrity Xcel combines the best of the Edge Series, including all the favourites, with completely new experiences that will change the game all over again. Celebrity Xcel will make its debut in the Caribbean in November 2025 and will take the cruise experience to breathtaking new heights.

Cunard can look back on a long maritime tradition. The shipping company was founded by Canadian Samuel Cunard in 1838 and took over the White Star Line in 1934. Throughout the years, Cunard has beautifully maintained its prestige and distinctive British style, with a strict dress code and English traditions, such as afternoon tea at 15.30, perfectly served by waiters wearing white gloves, the dance evenings with orchestra in the Queen's Room, the ballroom on board the ships, and, of course, the quintessential pub.


Cunard's fleet consists of 3 beautiful ships: Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria, and in 2024 the Queen Anne will be added. Each ship is grand in scale, with its own personality and feel, and stylish in every detail, in short, the perfect setting for discovering new destinations or revisiting your favourite spots. Dining is one of the many highlights on any Cunard voyage. Dedicated gourmet restaurants have been provided for all four cabin categories, The Britannia, Britannia Club, Princess Grill, and Queens Grill, each with its own personality and ambience. If you fancy a culinary change, you'll find a range of tempting alternatives at the Golden Lion pub, Kings Court, or the Lido buffet, with dishes from around the world. Or go for the complimentary room service for a cosy evening in your cabin or suite.


For the breathtaking interior of the new ship, Queen Anne, inspiration was drawn from Cunard's glorious past to define a striking new design direction focused on the future. The ship's name, Queen Anne, is a tribute to the British monarch who reigned from 1702 to 1714. She stood for refinement and special elegance, which is also beautifully reflected in the ship's design. Come aboard and discover a ship that is modern yet timeless.  Enjoy the freedom to do as much or as little as you like and enjoy everything that makes a Cunard ship so special. With luxurious touches and stylish décor, you can go exploring the world amid unparalleled comfort.

But this shipping line also takes you to iconic destinations in Asia, Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, and Europe. The newest ship, the Rotterdam, offers the best of everything Holland America Line does: exquisite cuisine, award-winning service, beautifully appointed staterooms and suites, and world-class entertainment.
