Celebrity Ascent has officially been named at Fort Lauderdale, Miami.

The ship was officiated by co-Godmothers, Captain Sandy Yawn, star of Bravo TV’s hit franchise, Below Deck, and her sister Michelle Dunham, Founder of the Jacksonville School for Autism.

Also in attendance were the ship’s co-captains Greek brothers Dimitrios and Tasos Kafetzis and trade and consumer media.

Celebrity Ascent is now sailing her 7-night Eastern Caribbean cruise visiting popular destinations as St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and the Dominican Republic.

The ship will be making its way to Europe for a Spring/Summer season in April 2024.

Jason Liberty, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean Group said: “With each new ship, our ambition is to debut the ultimate vacation experience and Celebrity Ascent achieves this by raising the bar for premium travel.

“Her elevated design and new onboard experiences set her apart from competitors and serve as a new benchmark for the travel industry.”

Laura Hodges Bethge, President at Celebrity Cruises, said:

Celebrity Ascent has been designed to feed our guests travel wanderlust and provide unique experiences they will covet and love.”
