The Countdown Is On: Celebrity Edge Floats Out Of Dry Dock

January 25, 2018 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Celebrity Cruises’ first new class of ship in over a decade, Celebrity Edge, has marked a major construction milestone as the game-changing vessel 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 and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.

“The float out process marks a major 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.”

The 2,918-guest Celebrity Edge will feature revolutionary Infinte Verandah staterooms, which erase the boundaries between the traditional ship stateroom and its veranda, as well as the Magic Carpet, an incredible engineering feat cantilevered from the side of the ship and able to scale the entire 16 decks.

Home-porting in Fort Lauderdale, FL., Celebrity Edge will first sail from 21 November 2018Celebrity Edge will spend her inaugural season sailing alternating seven-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries before transporting guests to the Mediterranean with a range of seven- to 11-night sailings from iconic cities like Barcelona and Rome in 2019.

Celebrity Edge will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
