Celebrity Edge, the first in a new series of newbuildings for Celebrity Cruises, has been floated out of the building dock at the STX France shipyard.
“This truly is an exciting moment for our brand,” Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises, said in a statement.
“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,” she said.
Celebrity Edge will 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.
