Celebrity Cruises’ new ship has sailed into its new home in South Florida in preparation for its inaugural season in the Caribbean.

Celebrity Edge in Florida

Celebrity Edge embarked on a transatlantic voyage of more-than 4,000-miles from France on 4th November 2018. The ship stopped at ports in Azores, Portugal, and in the Bahamas on its way to its new home within Port Everglades in South Florida.

Celebrity Edge’s inaugural season will see it offering alternating seven-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries.

The maiden western Caribbean voyage departs on 9th December 2018, while the first of its eastern Caribbean sailings departs on 16th December 2018.  Regular sailings through the Caribbean will then continue into 2019 and through to 2020.

In spring of 2019, Celebrity Edge will cross the Atlantic to offer guests a range of seven to 11-night sailings in the Mediterranean, visiting cities such as Barcelona and Rome.
