Celebrity Cruises’ new build Celebrity Edge has floated out of her dry dock at the STX France shipyard in Saint-Nazaire.

“This truly is an exciting moment for our brand,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises. “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.”

Homeporting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Celebrity Edge will make her first sailing on 21 November 2018.

Celebrity Edge will spend her inaugural season sailing seven-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries before transporting guests to the vistas of the Mediterranean with a variety of seven- to 11-night sailings from cities such as Barcelona and Rome in 2019.
