Celebrity Edge To Debut Early
Tuesday 9th January 2018, 9:27am
Celebrity Edge was originally due in December 2018, but Celebrity Cruises have added another five sailings meaning the ship will embark on her first cruise earlier than expected, departing from Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades. Among the new sailings will be four ‘preview’ itineraries which will each be three nights, heading to the Bahamas from Port Everglades, departing November 21st and 24th and December 3rd and 6th.
The schedule change will now allow Celebrity Cruises to offer not one, but two distinct seven-night maiden voyages on Celebrity Edge’s alternating eastern and western Caribbean itineraries. Cruisers also have the option to book back-to-back sailings for a 14-night journey:
- Maiden Voyage West: A seven-night western Caribbean cruise departing from Fort Lauderdale, FL., on December 9, 2018, and visiting Key West, FL.; Costa Maya, Mexico; Cozumel, Mexico; and George Town, Grand Cayman
- Maiden Voyage East: The previously announced seven-night eastern Caribbean cruise departing from Ft. Lauderdale on December 16, 2018, and visiting San Juan, Puerto Rico; Tortola, British Virgin Islands; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO 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 new even more guests will have the chance to experience these one-of-a-kind inaugural sailings.”
