Celebrity Edge
Celebrity Edge debuts in the UK
Celebrity Edge sailed into Southampton Monday, in advance of a summer season sailing in Europe. Sister ship, Celebrity Apex, will be based at the UK port for a mini season in spring 2020.

Celebrity Edge is redefining the cruise experience and today she makes her exciting debut in the UK, a really significant market for us,’ said Lisa Lutoff Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.

‘We can’t wait to see everyone’s reaction when she arrives in Southampton. Edge is changing how people view a cruise vacation, especially for those who are new to cruise/first-timers,’ she added.

Celebrity Apex coming to UK next year

Jo Rzymowska, vice president and managing director, Celebrity Cruises UK, Ireland and Asia, commented: ‘This is a ship that defies expectations, elevating cruise luxury to a whole new level. There are four more of these Edge-class ships on order and the next, Celebrity Apex, will be based in the UK when it launches in Southampton next year. This visit is the perfect preview of what’s in store.’
