Celebrity Edge to Sail Alaska Itineraries

Celebrity Edge is making its debut in Alaska this summer. The ship will set sail on a seven-night itinerary from Seattle, visiting Juneau, Ketchikan, and Skagway, including a stop at Dawes Glacier!

“There’s no better way to see the pristine Alaskan wilderness than onboard Celebrity Edge, which was specifically designed to create a closer connection between guests and destinations,” said Laura Hodges Bethge, President of Celebrity Cruises. “Our elevated vacation options are redefining travel, especially in this region.” 

From May to September 2024, Celebrity Edge Series ships will offer guests a unique Alaska experience. The Magic Carpet platform and Infinite Veranda staterooms provide a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing guests to dine, relax, and enjoy the views of Alaska’s wildlife and landscapes.

Celebrity Edge will sail from Seattle and Vancouver on 6- and 7-night itineraries. The route will include visits to Ketchikan, Endicott Arm, Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria, with opportunities to see local wildlife and explore Alaska’s top destinations.
