“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.
