An excellent cruise. Great ship and staff were extremely polite, cheerful and helpful.

Celebrity Beyond is a beautiful Edge class ship with amazing public spaces and a full entertainment programme.
We particularly enjoyed the Retreat area of the ship which is exclusively for suite guests, as there was more space and a more luxurious overall experience. Captain Kate McCue was very visible around the ship and the Cruise director Alejandro was excellent at his job. We would love to sail again on Beyond soon.

Very modern ship, friendly, efficient staff. Excellent entertainment team, exceptional cruise director.
Prefer to have traditional dining option with set time and table number but food and service were good.
Disappointed that evening dress codes not enforced in main dining rooms with lots of people wearing shorts and trainers. Chic night was a non event!
We chose port hole verandah as not convinced on virtual option.
Enjoyed our cruise and would consider Beyond for future cruise.
