Celebrity Edge enters Miami
CELEBRITY Cruises’ Celebrity Edge has officially arrived at her new home of Florida, sailing into the Port Everglades Terminal 25 after her first 15-day transatlantic crossing.
The ship sailed into the port after departing the Chantiers de L’Atlantique shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France, on 04 Nov carrying more than 1,400 crew members and stopping over at Azores, Portugal & the Bahamas.
“The completion of her first-ever transatlantic crossing and arrival at T25 marks such a historic moment for Celebrity Cruises,” said President and Chief Executive Officer of Celebrity Cruises, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo.
“This has been more than four years in the making... the collaboration and effort between teams across the world all comes together in this moment.
“I can think of no better place to be than with Captain Costas and the crew of Celebrity Edge knowing that we are sailing into the future, literally and figuratively, with this beautiful ship,” Lutoff-Perlo added.
Following her arrival, a grand opening ceremony was held that was attended by key brand executives and officials.
The event included a ribboncutting ceremony, marking the official opening of the first terminal designed exclusively for the Celebrity brand.
Celebrity Edge is the cruise line’s first new ship in six years, and the first of a new class in more than 10 years.
The vessel will begin her inaugural season sailing alternating eastern and western Caribbean itineraries on 09 Dec - more info HERE.
