Celebrity Cruises celebrates 30th birthday

Celebrity Cruises has marked its 30th birthday by reflecting on its journey to push the limits of traditional cruising and create a unique modern luxury experience at sea.

Established in 1990 by the Greece-based Chandris Group, the line became part of Royal Caribbean Cruises seven years later in 1997.

Celebrity Cruises now boasts 14 ships and thousands of team members from over 60 countries.

“Having recently celebrated my 35th anniversary with the company, my time at RCL predates the acquisition of Celebrity Cruises, giving me a unique perspective in watching Celebrity grow from day one.

“I was a district sales manager in New England, at the time, and Celebrity was a formidable competitor that really started to change the complexion of premium cruising.

“For me, Celebrity’s legacy will be setting modern luxury cruising standards that are Celebrity’s to own, and then resetting and raising the bar, again and again,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and chief executive of Celebrity Cruises.
