Celebrity Cruises’ parent company, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., had ordered a fifth Edge-class cruise ship with Chantiers de l’Atlantique. The ship is scheduled for delivery in fall 2024.
The first in the series, Celebrity Edge, debuted in late 2018 with an innovative design featuring a “floating” deck called the Magic Carpet, which does double duty as a tender station or bar depending on its location. Another hallmark of the class are the “Infinite Verandah” cabins, where one section of the room easily transforms from a balcony to an indoor lounge area.
The previously announced, additional Edge-class ships will debut in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
