Celebrity Edge departed Saint-Nazaire on Sunday, bound for Florida's Port Everglades
Following its hand-over from Chantiers de l'Atlantique last Wednesday, Celebrity Edge departed the Saint-Nazaire shipyard on Sunday, bound for the US.

Arrival at Port Everglades in Florida is scheduled for Nov. 19, where the ship's new home, the customized Terminal 25, awaits.

As of the morning of Nov. 6, Celebrity Edge was 3,300 nautical miles from its destination, positioned at 37 degrees 58 minutes north latitude and 17 degrees 9 minutes west longitude.

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).
