Countdown begins as world gets its first glimpse of Celebrity Edge

The world got its first a glimpse today of Celebrity Cruises' first ship in a new class in more than 10 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 of Celebrity Cruises as Celebrity Edge left her mounting dock with the support of seven tug boats.

“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 heading to 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 21 November.
