(PRESS RELEASE)_MIAMI (April 21, 2022) – Celebrity Cruises® today announced their exclusive retail lineup onboard the highly anticipated new-luxury ship Celebrity BeyondSM, curating an immersive lifestyle shopping experience that showcases notable fashion brands, wellness collaborations and sustainable offerings rivaling high-end shopping destinations on land.
Open for business from Celebrity Beyond’s official launch on April 27, guests on Celebrity Beyond will have access to a variety of well-known, first-at-sea luxury goods including high-fashion by Stella McCartney, beauty products from goop, gourmet chocolate from Maison du Chocolate, and many more.

The luxury retail offerings are complemented by authentic destination-inspired collections and additional responsible retail experiences.
“Our vision was to create a retail experience that mirrors Celebrity’s own purpose-driven commitments from supporting women, diversity, and sustainability to celebrating local culture and traditions,” said Brian Abel, Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations for Celebrity Cruises. “It’s a thoughtful collection designed to make our shops a destination in themselves and a gathering place for fans of both iconic and up-and-coming brands.”

Several new brand collections will launch exclusively on Celebrity Beyond for the first time at sea.
Making its ocean debut, luxury fashion brand Stella McCartney, known for its commitment to responsible fashion, creating beautiful, desirable products with the least impact on the environment, will offer apparel, footwear, handbags, and sunglasses. Also debuting on Celebrity Beyond is Marni, an Italian luxury fashion house that celebrates the authenticity of Italian artisanal workmanship with its apparel and handbags, exalting the sophistication of materials and the originality of its design.
Modern lifestyle brand goop, founded by Gwyneth Paltrow, Celebrity’s Well-Being Advisor, will offer a curated capsule of beauty and skincare products from the brand’s popular GOOPGLOW, GOOPGENES, and G.Tox collections as an extension to their existing partnership with Celebrity; and Beekman 1802, the world’s largest goat-milk skincare company with clinically tested, scientifically proven formulas for sensitive skin, will also debut onboard.

Luxury Boutiques at Sea
Dubbed “Luxury Avenue,” Deck 5 on Celebrity Beyond showcases highly covetable boutiques from iconic brands and will be home to the first luxury watch boutique at sea, featuring all three iconic Swiss timepiece brands - Cartier, IWC and Panerai. Guests can also shop for watches, along with jewelry, handbags, and accessories at iconic Italian luxury lifestyle brand Bvlgari’s standalone lifestyle boutique. Rounding out the lineup of world-class designers is Montblanc, which brings its fine European craftsmanship and time-honored designs to a lifestyle assortment across writing instruments, watches, leather goods and more, along with niche discovery brands in an all-new men’s lifestyle shopping concept.
In keeping with Celebrity’s commitment to female empowerment, sustainability, diversity and wellness, guests can “purchase with purpose” and discover responsible brands that pursue meaning beyond commerce.

Bringing Destinations Aboard
Onboard Celebrity Beyond, guests will find a celebration of people, culture and traditions from the ports visited coming to life in artisanal apparel, accessories, and authentic gifts.
While traversing through Europe on Celebrity Beyond’s Mediterranean itineraries, guests will be able to purchase locally made gifts from the destinations visited including sustainable footwear from Spanish brand Respoke, which repurposes designer silk scarves into one-of-a-kind footwear made with natural fibers and environmentally friendly materials; and leather handbags and accessories from The Bridge in Florence, Italy that blends tradition with modernity and a 50-year history of skilled Italian craftsmanship.
Guests will be able to experience a little slice of Greece, as they shop Rizes Crete’s selection of natural cosmetics, soaps and decorative home items made with olive wood in Crete, Greece; and, from Marseille, France, La Corvette’s soaps and body care products made from traditional, handcrafted cooking practices dating back to 1894, using only vegetable oils with no perfumes, coloring, or preservatives.
