Work Begins on Celebrity Edge

The first steel was cut today for another new ship, but not just any new ship. This will be the fist of the new Edge class for Celebrity, named Celebrity Edge, scheduled for delivery in the fall of 2018.

The event took place at the STX France yard at Saint- Nazaire. At today's steel cutting it was revealed that the second ship in the Edge class will be named Celebrity Beyond. It will enter service in the spring of 2020.

The complete story appeared in the November 21 edition of Cruise News Daily.
