Spotted: Celebrity Edge Floated Out at STX

Workers at STX France shipyard were working late on Monday night, January 22, in order to float out Celebrity Cruises’ newest ship Celebrity Edge.

It took seven tugs to carry out the maneuver, the shipbuilder said.

The vessel is now moored in the basin of Saint Nazaire where it will be fitted out with the remaining installations and shipboard amenities.

The ship is set for delivery in October 2018.

Celebrity Cruises signed a letter of intent for two 117,000 gross ton cruise ships with French shipbuilder STX France in December 2014.

Its Edge Class sister ship, to be named Celebrity Beyond, is scheduled for delivery in spring 2020, and the third and fourth Edge Class ships would be delivered in fall 2021 and fall 2022, respectively.

Featuring a length of 300 meters and a width of 38 meters, the new vessels will be able to carry 2,900 guests in 1,450 staterooms.
