Celebrity Edge To Arrive Sooner Than Expected
Celebrity Cruises have announced that their new ship Celebrity Edge will enter service for the cruise line sooner than originally anticipated.
The early arrival is due to the STX shipyard in France completing the ship’s construction ahead of schedule. As a consequence, Celebrity Cruises are now offering a collection of new voyages ahead of the previously planned inaugural sailing date.
Four of the new Celebrity Edge voyages have been christened “Edge Preview Sailings” and will cruise the Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale on the 21st and 24th November and the 3rd and 6th December. These 3-night voyages will then be followed by two 7-night cruises in the Caribbean, with the itineraries as follows:
- Maiden Voyage West: Departs 9th December 2018 - Fort Lauderdale, Key West, Costa Maya, Cozumel, George Town, Fort Lauderdale.
- Maiden Voyage East: Departs 16th December 2018 - Fort Lauderdale, San Juan, Tortola, Philipsburg, Fort Lauderdale.
Commenting on the early delivery date and the new voyages, Celebrity Cruises’ President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said:
“Thanks to the amazing work of the STX France shipyard team, the industry-changing Celebrity Edge is now scheduled to arrive much earlier than anticipated, which gave us the opportunity to offer not one, but two maiden voyages. Both of these maiden voyages, plus the taste of luxury preview sailings, will have all of the festivities one would expect from the launch of such a revolutionary new ship, and now even more guests will have the chance to experience these one-of-a-kind inaugural sailings.”
The first of four “Edge Class” ships, Celebrity Edge will offer capacity for 2,900 guests and feature a number of enhancements to the Celebrity Cruises experience, including a floating platform called the ‘Magic Carpet’ which will take guests up to 13 storeys above sea level and a new Edge Villas that boast their very own plunge pools.
