Celebrity Cruises’ first new ship in six years, Celebrity Edge, has just floated out of her dry dock at the STX France shipyard.
The line was proud to offer the world a glimpse of what will be the brand’s first ship in a new class in more than 10 years at the official float out.
“This truly is an exciting moment for our brand,” said President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “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 has been known as the ship that will transform expectations since the first details emerged in March 2017; she has been designed completely in 3-D and has the aim to make travellers re-define how they experience the world.
A number of game-changing features include The Magic Carpet, the Rooftop Garden, The Retreat, and two brand new suite categories.
The ship is due to 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.
She will homeport in Fort Lauderdale, FL. and her first sailing will take place on November 21st 2018.
Celebrity Edge will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022; the first of which is Celebrity Beyond with the next two being named the 3rd and 4th Edge Class ships.
