Ship handed over and now crossing Transatlantic

The new ship was finally handed over on November 2 and has since left STX Shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France on a Transatlantic journey to her homeport of Fort Lauderdale. From here she’ll begin 7-night round-trip cruises, alternating between Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.

Celebrity EDGE, the first in the new EDGE-class, has been hotly anticipated due to her innovative and revolutionary design, in particular, the “Magic Carpet” external deck that sits on the outside of the ship and moves up and down the ship for tender or restaurant purposes.

In additional news for the cruise line, November 2 also marked the day Celebrity Apex reached her first building milestone: her keel-laying ceremony. She will be the second ship in the EDGE-class and is to be launched from Southampton in 2020.
