The ceremonial keel laying has taken place for the Celebrity Edge in Saint-Nazaire, France setting the foundation for the ship’s innovative new structure.

An 875-ton block was lifted in the air and a lucky coin was placed in the dock before the block was lowered into position. With the solid foundation in place, the building blocks can be joined together to create the ship of the future. Leaders from both Celebrity Cruises and STX France were at the event to celebrate the next stage of the ships evolution.

Celebrity Edge will homeport in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., making her first sailing December 16, 2018.

Bookings are already available for the ship’s two 7-night itineraries to both Eastern and Western Caribbean. Travelers will also have the option to book back-to-back sailings for a 14-night journey. Celebrity Edge will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
