The World’s First Cruise Line in the Forbes Travel Guide’s Star Awards
Has Six Star-Rated Ships in 2024

MIAMI (February 7, 2024) – Celebrity Cruises, the first ocean cruise line to earn the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”) Star Awards in 2023, continues to collect accolades with six of its ships receiving an official rating in 2024. Illustrating the importance of innovation and guest centric service is the addition of Celebrity Ascent, the newest Edge Series ship, to the Four-Star list.  

Celebrity’s six premium ships earning Star Ratings are Celebrity Ascent, Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Flora, Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Millennium, and Celebrity Summit.

Forbes Travel Guide is the global authority on luxury hospitality and the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, spas, and ocean cruises. FTG’s professional inspectors travel the world to anonymously evaluate hospitality providers based on hundreds of standards that determine their annual Star Ratings.

“We strive to exceed all expectations for our guests seeking the best in premium vacations, from our level of elevated service, thoughtful amenities, and the highest quality of experiences both on and off our ships. We are honored to be recognized again by the only global rating system for the ocean cruise category,” says Laura Hodges Bethge, Celebrity Cruises President. “We applaud our incredibly talented and dedicated Celebrity crew for another year of international recognition.”

“Celebrity embodies the modern-day ethos of elevated service, elegant facilities and upscale dining options with the added benefit of being on the move to a variety of destinations,” said Hermann Elger, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “We congratulate Celebrity for its Star Award achievements for six ships.”
