Debuting in April 2022, Celebrity Beyond is the third of Celebrity Cruises' innovate Edge class. The 3,260-passenger ship is both longer and taller than its two class siblings, Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Apex, and has an extra 179 cabins, including suites.

Celebrity Beyond's Deck Plan Looks Different Than Previous Edge-Class Ships

The extra space on the ship means that Celebrity Beyond will have an expanded Sunset Bar; a larger Rooftop Garden and resort deck with attractive float pools, as well as an airy Grand Plaza and larger Martini Bar.

Celebrity Beyond is also leaning into design, and features partnerships with a cadre of well-known architects and designers, including Kelly Hoppen and Nate Berkus. Gwyneth Paltrow is also debuting a partnership with her wellness line, goop, and serving as a spokesperson of sorts for a total reimaging of Celebrity's AquaClass. Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud will also debut his first restaurant at sea.

Here are some more highlights of Celebrity Beyond:

Suite Class: Celebrity Beyond is making its Suite Class offerings even more luxurious than on previous ships. The Retreat -- the line's resort area just for suite guests -- has a sundeck that is 40 percent larger, spanning two decks.

Luminae, the restaurant for suite guests, also has a major refresh. Passengers eating in Luminae will now also have access to a wine pairing with their food, developed by Boulud.

Celebrity Beyond has also redesigned its two-story Edge Villas, which have private outdoor plunge pools. The ship's Iconic Suites are the largest in the fleet.

AquaClass. The line has said that its AquaClass is getting a redo now that Paltrow is onboard. Branded fitness kits from her wellness company, goop, will be placed in the cabins, with more announcements to come.

Celebrity Beyond will be the first ship to have AquaClass SkySuites. These will feature floor-to-ceiling ocean views, private verandahs, luxurious bedding and other wellness amenities.

Rooftop Garden. This relaxation area on the top deck has plenty of spaces to chill, and new spoilers have been added to reduce the wind. The Rooftop Grill will also be expanded for outdoor dining.

One new feature that gives the space an international hotel look are two "floating pools," cantilevered more than 6 feet over the side of the ship.

Resort Deck. The main open deck is 40 percent larger than on other Edge Class ships, allowing more outdoor space. It features a large 25-yard lap pool and two "martini glass" Jacuzzis that overlook the deck below. Two-story private cabanas flank the pool, which features a quirky statue of a man balancing an elephant at one end.

Sunset Bar. The popular aft bar has grown in space, spanning two decks and making it much larger, with terraces for more views. The Berkus-designed space is Moroccan-inspired, with use of ceramics, tile, terracotta and other materials.

Grand Atrium. The ship's interior atrium, designed by the French design team of Jouin Manku, is also larger than on previous Edge-class ships and was created with an airier feel. The Martini Bar, a Celebrity mainstay, anchors the atrium as a full, circular bar. A modern chandelier with hundreds of individual LED lights serves as the dramatic centerpiece.

Le Voyage. Boulud's new restaurant, his first at sea, will focus on international fine dining. The space, with soft colors and dining "cocoons," is meant to feel like you are "dining in a lantern." A price for the specialty restaurant has not been released yet.

Celebrity Beyond Will Sail Mediterranean Itineraries Before Heading to the U.S.

Celebrity Beyond willl launch with itineraries in the Mediterraean and the Greek Isles in spring and summer 2022, sailing from both Barcelona and Civitavecchia, near Rome.

The ship will arrive in the U.S. in October 2022 after a transatlantic cruise from Barcelona, and will have its naming ceremony in New York City. It will sail one nine-night cruise to the Southern Caribbean from Cape Liberty in nearby Bayonne, New Jersey.

In fall 2022, Celebrity Beyond will head to Fort Lauderdale, where it will homeport at Port Everglades. From there, the ship will sail Eastern and Western itineraries, stopping at ports such as St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Nassau, Cozumel and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

Celebrity Beyond's Maiden Voyage Will Be In April 2022

Celebrity Beyond will kick off with a series of "shake down" cruises from Southampton. The first sailing with paying passengers will be April 27, boarding in Southampton and sailing to Barcelona, with stops in Spain and Portugal.
