MIAMI (April 22, 2022) – Starboard Cruise Services, the leading cruise retailer and LVMH Moët Hennessy company, and Celebrity Cruises, reunite to deliver an immersive lifestyle shopping experience onboard Celebrity Beyond. The curated vacation retail offerings showcase notable fashion brands, wellness collaborations and sustainable offerings. Celebrity Beyond embarks on her maiden voyage to Western Europe on April 27, 2022, from Southampton, U.K.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Celebrity once again for the launch of the third ship in the revolutionary Edge® Series,” says Lisa Bauer, Starboard’s President and CEO. “Onboard, guests will find a thoughtfully-curated collection of upscale and sustainable products, first-at-sea concepts and iconic heritage brands that contribute to the guests’ transformative and stylish retail experience.”
The Celebrity Shops exhibit a sleek, modern design featuring new luxury concepts and many first-at-sea brands, products and experiences. Covering a total of 8,966 square feet across two decks, the space is divided into distinct zones: experiential luxury boutiques (Deck 5), and lifestyle, Swiss time pieces and immersive multi-category shops (Deck 4). Each zone offers a wide range of merchandise, from apparel, accessories, spirits, eco-friendly products to beauty, logo, destination, watches and more.

Making its ocean debut, Stella McCartney, a luxury British brand committed to responsible fashion, creates beautiful, desirable products with the least impact on our environment. Their conscious values are the inspiration behind the innovation that makes them the industry leaders in creating the most cutting-edge materials and animal alternatives. The first-at-sea onboard offering will include apparel, footwear, handbags, and sunglasses.
