May 24, 2018 - Celebrity Cruises has four cruise ships of the new EDGE class built by the STX shipyard in France. The first ship, the Celebrity Edge, will leave Fort Lauderdale / Fl. on December 1, 2018 for her maiden voyage. Three sister ships will follow in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
The Celebrity Edge is unlikely to be much larger than the cruise ships of the SOLSTICE class. As can be heard, the Edge will accommodate 2.918 guests with double occupancy. With regard to the expected innovations, the shipping company speaks of fundamental changes. These essentially result from larger cabins, a Magic Carpet platform and newly designed suites.

As is generally the case with new launches of cruise ships, the innovations are served to the interested clientele in bites. This time it's about the SPA. The premium shipping company, which is part of the Royal Caribbean network, had the designer Kelly Hoppen designed this. In collaboration with industry-leading partners, a wide range of treatments is offered on more than 2.043 square meters.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises enthuses: “Our aspiration to The Spa was the same as that of Celebrity Edge - to offer our guests a deeper connection to the ocean. To start a small revolution in the area of relaxation, we turned to the visionary Kelly Hoppen again with the aim of completely transforming the spa experience and developing an atmosphere that envelops guests in luxury and their soul from the first moment on calmed down.

The SEA spa concept, inspired by the sea, the earth and the air, runs through all the elements and treatments. A special welcome ritual should precede the more than 124 offers. From wellness to beauty to fitness - the SPA on the Celebrity Edge offers guests a range of first presentations and news. There is not enough space to show the variety of programs.
Interested parties can test the wide range of SPA offers in winter 2018/2019 in the eastern and western Caribbean. In 2019 the ship will then cruise in the Mediterranean. Even then, there should be space for testing.
