Celebrity Edge Float Out
Okay we are a little late on this one (in our defence the website hadn’t launched at the time!) For those that missed it, January 23rd saw the brand new Celebrity Edge float out of dry dock.
Celebrity Cruises latest ship is currently under construction in Saint-Nazaire, France. When launched she will be the largest in Celebrity cruises fleet at 129,500 gross tonnes and carrying over 2,900 passengers across 14 passenger decks. Kelly Hoppen, a South African interior designer and former “Dragon” of the BBC hit show “The Dragons Den” will be involved in the interior design for all guest accommodation and some of the public spaces.
The new “Edge” class ship will feature a world first “Magic Carpet” venue. At the size of a tennis court, this incredible engineering feat is the world’s first cantilevered venue at sea that travels 13 stories. This spectacular space is re-positioned alongside several decks and transforms into a new and exciting venue depending on which deck it’s positioned.
