New Cruise Experience

Luan Taylor Celebrity Beyond May 2022

I have just had the privilege of spending a few days on Celebrity Cruises fantastic new cruise ship,  Beyond, and it didn’t disappoint. To be onboard Beyond’s inaugural sailing was an amazing experience and a great honour for Westway Travel.

First impressions
Celebrity beyond looks to be a Large ship, very modern and stylish, plenty of space with an informal relaxed atmosphere, great for the less mobile. The Beyond screams luxury with fine dining, trendy bars, designer shopping and modern art spread across the whole ship. Some would say it’s a floating art gallery.

What is special?
The interior of this ship has been beautifully designed by some of the worlds leading architects and designers and caters for all tastes especially its restaurants and bars. a gallery at sea, stunning roof top Garden, Eden  a 3 storey Restaurant Bar and an entertainment programme where it all happens day & night.
The choice of dining experiences is fantastic with flavours from all over the world to suit all tastes. If you are looking for an all you can eat buffets or fine dining created by Michelin-starred chef, this ship has it all. The same can be said for the bars and clubs. The trendy Martini bar in the Grand Plaza is the place to be seen but if this isn’t your scene you could always head to one of the more relaxed bars like Eden or the Sunset Bar.

How does it compare with other ships?   

Having received short feedback from our client who were on the early sailings of Beyond, I agree that the new class of ship are directed more towards new to cruise, with its ultra-modern vibe it’s not what the traditional cruisers may be looking for. Celebrity X Class appears to be deliberately widening its audience with a view of encouraging a slightly younger generation to start cruising whilst still considering their existing customers. The App is great example of how they are encouraging the younger generation. With maps, cabin entry and restaurant reservations at the touch of button the App is a must for anyone cruising with Celebrity.
Take the time to look at the Iconic suite, the biggest onboard but being more realistic you should look at the Infinite Veranda stateroom. Fresh, Bright and fully of modern gadgets, however the thing that sets this room apart is the Extra space gained by the clever design of the Veranda.  Rather than a door that divides the space you Celebrity have introduced folding bifold doors that makes the Veranda an integral part of the cabin space.

When and where
Sailing Europe in the Summer, Transatlantic, Caribbean in the Winter

Last words
If your wanting to just chill by the pool, take in show, burn a few calories in the gym or go clubbing this is the ship for you.  But is it a ship when you see photographs like this you see something that perhaps you were not expecting?
