Closer to the Edge than We Thought

The shipbuilding process has become so precise and exacting, that the builders and their customers can tell very quite accurately if they are falling behind or are running ahead of schedule and how much. This has been so perfected that they can now quite confidently tell almost a year before delivery that they will be able to deliver the ship early.

That has enabled STX France to notify Celebrity of Celebrity Edge's early delivery, and the line has now moved the ship's first sailing back from December 16 (2018) to November 21.

The complete story appeared in the January 8 edition of Cruise News Daily.
