Celebrity Cruises has become the first cruise line to earn Forbes Travel Guide (FTG) Stars and five of their cruise ships have been rated Five Star Cruise Ships.
Forbes Travel Guide Stars is a prestigious travel recognition that has been reserved for world class land based properties. Fewer than 20 properties with over 1,000 rooms have received this award and now Celebrity Cruises is the first cruise line to receive this coveted recognition.
The inaugural Five Star-Rated cruise ships are Celebrity Apex, Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Flora, Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Summit. The remainder of the cruise line’s 15-ship fleet will be evaluated in the year ahead, except for the smaller Galapagos ships.
