Celebrity Cruises has announced that its innovative and ground-breaking new ship, Celebrity Edge is going to debut earlier than originally expected.
Construction of the new ship at the STX shipyard in France is going so well that Celebrity Cruises are planning to launch the ship earlier than planned, adding a number of new cruises.
Celebrity Cruises have added four three-night cruises from Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas departing on 21 November, 24 November, 03 December and 06 December. A new seven-night Western Caribbean cruise departing on 09 December will visit Key West, Cozumel, Costa Maya and Grand Cayman.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, 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.”
