The 2,900-passenger ship, which is due to launch autumn 2018, will include a call at Southampton on May 13th 2019 for a two-night mini-cruise, strictly for travel agents and media.
The first sailing for paying passengers will be a 10-night cruise from Southampton to Rome on May 15th 2019.
Silhouette will replace Celebrity Eclipse, which has spent eight years cruising from Southampton, and begin homeporting there in April 2018.
The seven-night ‘open-jaw’ itineraries are unique, calling at a total of 11 ports, with only one repeat port of call in Florence. Passengers can also opt for a back-to-back 14-night cruise.
Additionally, Edge will:
-Offer longer stay in ports including Ibiza, Monte Carlo, Naples
-Call in at 30 ports in 10 countries and offer five overnights
“From our expansive new itineraries, including three exciting new ports of call and overnights in 16 cities across the region, to our specially curated shore excursions, there’s a reason we’re continually recognised and win multiple awards,” commented Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.
Edge is now known as the game-changer for Celebrity, pioneering a revolutionary new design which sees infinite balconies that increase cabin size, and a platform on the side of the ship which doubles as a tender station and restaurant/bar called the “Magic Carpet.”
The other Celebrity ships that will be Europe-based in 2019 include:
