Global Morning News – Italy, France & Spain Onboard Celebrity Ascent

Posted on: February 27, 2024

What’s not to love about a brand new cruise ship? The Celebrity Ascent came into service this past November and from what I see she is a beauty! I have sailed on her sister ship, the Beyond, which took my breath away with the elegant gorgeous open spaces and artwork. Celebrity have taken all that is good on the Beyond and…. Well gone beyond …. With improvements to the Ascent.

The rooftop garden is a favourite place to hang out and now has two plunge pools either side. Also the Rooftop Grill has been partially enclosed for those windy days.

In the evenings the Martini Bar is where it all happens. Entertainment of course is a given. Entertainment is top notch with the main theatre which is spread across two decks and in a semi circle, with a rounded stage. The level of tech here is mind-blowing, with triple-deck height wraparound screens that immerse the audience fully into the action, recreating scenes and landscapes in Ultra HD 4K. You can also enjoy Broadway style shows – all included in your cruise price.

My favourite place for a cocktail on Celebrity is at the World Class Bar. The team of expert mixologists can create the classics and some special ones too!

So where shall we go?

How about 12 nights out of Barcelona with visits to Seville, Gibraltar, Malaga, Nice, Florence, Rome, Santa Margherita and back to Barcelona.

Where’s Santa Margherita – along the Italian Riviera and just a short ferry ride to Portofino. Nice day out!
