Celebrity Cruises has offered the world a glimpse of what will be the brand’s 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.

The STX France team will now turn their attention to bringing all of the venues and staterooms and suites to life.

Celebrity Edge will spend her inaugural season sailing alternating seven-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries before returning to the Mediterranean with a range of seven- to 11-night sailings from Barcelona and Rome in 2019.

Homeporting in Fort Lauderdale, Celebrity Edge will be making her first sailing on 21st November.
