More than 1,400 'excited' crew
On board are more than 1,400 'excited' crew members, according to Celebrity Cruises, and many others 'passionately at work putting the finishing touches on this magnificent ship, making sure that every detail is absolutely perfect, every surface sparkles, and every routine is mastered before a single guest ever steps aboard.'
Dec. 9 maiden voyage
Celebrity Edge’s inaugural season will be spent sailing alternating seven-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises. The maiden western voyage departs Dec. 9, and the first eastern voyage sails Dec. 16.
Then, in the spring, Celebrity Edge crosses the Atlantic again to stop in Southampton before sailing the Mediterranean on a range of seven- to 11-night cruises from Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome).
