Celebrity Edge en­ters Mi­ami

Cruise Weekly - - News -

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.
