Exciting news cruisers! Thanks to Celebrity Edge® being ready much earlier than expected, Celebrity Cruises® has decided to offer not just one – but two – spectacular maiden voyages!
Not only that, but as they’re due to take delivery of her almost a month earlier than originally planned, the cruise line has decided to enter her into service with four special short cruises.
When will the sailings be?
Celebrity Edge’s homeport will be Fort Lauderdale in Florida, and she’ll make her first short sailing on the 21st of November 2018. The rest of these four new three-day preview sailings will take place on the 24th of November, the 3rd of December and the 6th of December 2018.
Her new seven-night inaugural voyage departs to the western Caribbean on the 9th of December, followed by the previously announced seven-night eastern Caribbean cruise leaving on the 16th of December 2018. Cruisers also have the option to book these sailings back-to-back, allowing them to enjoy a 14-night journey!
President and Chief Executive of Celebrity Cruises 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.”
Other exciting arrivals
And of course, Celebrity Edge will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Together, they’ll make the Edge Class! These ships will be larger than any of those in the Millennium Class, but slightly smaller than the Solstice Class vessels – meaning you’ll experience the best of both worlds.
