Celebrity Cruises has offered the first glimpse of what will be the brand’s first ship in a new class in more than ten years, as Celebrity Edge floated out of her dry dock at the STX France shipyard.
“This truly is an exciting moment for our brand,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president, Celebrity Cruises.
“The float out process marks a milestone in the building of Celebrity Edge.
“With exterior construction complete, the amazing STX France team will now turn their attention to bringing all of the meticulously designed venues and transformational staterooms and suites to life.”
Celebrity Edge will spend her inaugural season sailing alternating seven-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries before transporting guests to the stunning vistas of the Mediterranean with a range of seven- to 11-night sailings from iconic cities like Barcelona and Rome in 2019.
Homeporting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Celebrity Edge will be making her first sailing on November 21st.
Celebrity Edge will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
