Celebrity Beyond is its biggest, most luxe liner yet

What do Simone Biles, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nate Berkus, Daniel Boulud and one of the world’s most Insta-famous naked cats have in common? Here’s a hint: It weighs 140,600 tons, yet somehow manages to float.

Aptly named “Beyond,” Celebrity Cruises' newest ship is sailing proof that some cruise companies never stop innovating – even during a global pandemic. In fact, Beyond’s steel-cutting took place in 2020. While the rest of the world was in lockdown, shipmakers at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in northwestern France were busy building the 17-deck, 1,073-foot-long vessel.

Capable of housing 3,260 passengers and 1,400 crew members, Beyond is basically an ocean-going village. The actual groundbreaking ceremony, however, took place in March when Beyond’s captain, Kate McCue, became the first female captain to steer a cruise liner out of the 160-year-old shipyard.
