So here’s the next set of data about forthcoming ships, this time from Celebrity Cruises:
These are all being built at by STX France, at their yard in Saint-Nazaire. This is a change for Celebrity; most if not all of her 14 previous new builds (Horizon class; Century class; Millennium class; and Solstice class) were built by Meyer at Papenburg.
There’s a lot of mystery still about the features and facilities of the Edge class – Celebrity are being very coy. Presumably we’ll know more soon, however. In fact if she’s going into service in autumn 2018 they’ll have to start selling the cruises sometime this year, which means that details will have to be made available at that time.
By happenstance, Malcolm Oliver wrote a post about the secrecy of this class (and others) on his site today.
