The Transformative Celebrity Edge Celebrates Its Next Milestone

June 23, 2017 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Today, the ceremonial keel laying took place for Celebrity Edge in Saint-Nazaire, France setting the foundation for the ship’s innovative new structure. An 875 ton block was lifted in the air and a lucky coin was placed in the dock before the block was lowered into position. With the solid foundation in place, the building blocks can be joined together to create the ship of the future.

Leaders from both Celebrity Cruises and STX France were at the event to celebrate the next stage of the ship’s evolution.

Celebrity Edge will homeport in Fort Lauderdale, FL, making her first sailing 16 December, 2018.

Bookings are now open at or through a travel agent, for the ship’s two 7-night itineraries: an eastern and western Caribbean. Guests will also have the option to book back-to-back sailings for a 14-night journey. Celebrity Edge will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
