For the first time ever, Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Edge is to spend the 2024 summer season offering itineraries in Alaska. The ship is currently sailing a seven-night roundtrip voyage from Seattle, USA, with stops in the Alaskan ports of Juneau, Ketchikan, and Skagway. 

The ship will sail further roundtrip itineraries from Seattle and one-way, six- or seven-night voyages between Vancouver, Canada, and Seattle from May to September. Itineraries will include visits to Ketchikan, known as the ‘Salmon Capital of the World’; the Endicott Arm where guests can see local wildlife including brown bears, bald eagles, and wolves; Alaska’s capital city Juneau, which sits between Mount Juneau, Mount Roberts, and Gastineau Channel; and Skagway, where visitors can learn about the port’s gold rush history. On its return to Seattle, the ship will sail to Victoria, Canada, through the Inside Passage. 

“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.”

Celebrity Cruises, as part of Royal Caribbean Group, engages port communities across Alaska through its Sea the Future commitment, including several partnerships with local retailers to offer guests access to Alaska-owned products and experiences. Royal Caribbean Group has also supported the creation of the Ketchikan Salmon Walk, which allows visitors to learn about the life cycle of salmon in Ketchikan Creek, as well as the Sitka Sound Science Center’s Scientists in the Schools (SIS) programme.
