Celebrity Cruises parent company Royal Caribbean international Ltd. has agreed to order two more Edge class ships with STX France. The cruise line already has two Edge class ships on order to be delivered in 2018 and 2020.
The new Edge class ships will be a totally new vessel for the cruise line at 117,000 gross tons. The ships will have a passenger capacity of 2,900. The new ships announced today will be delivered in at the end of 2021 and 2022.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises said:
“Although our first Edge-class vessel is still over two years away from delivery, there has been a tremendous amount of interest around the new standard of style Edge-class will introduce, Solstice-class ushered in a new era of design for modern cruise ships, and Edge-class will not disappoint as the new generation of high style and design.”
