“This is a moment of real celebration”: Celebrity Edge is finally heading Down Under

Celebrity Cruises has announced plans for its revolutionary Celebrity Edge to debut Down Under for the 2023-24 season.

The brand’s signature Edge Series ship will offer an array of six- to13-night itineraries from early December 2023 through to April 2024, designed to immerse guests in the spoils of Australia and New Zealand’s coastlines, along with the tropical South Pacific.

Guests will be able to select from 12 bespoke itineraries visiting a collection of 22 ports, with departures from both Sydney and Auckland.

Celebrity Edge is widely regarded as one of the most innovative cruise ships on earth.

The ship offers a modern cruising experience with its contemporary interior and unique outward-facing design, treating guests to unparalleled views of the sea and the destinations visited.

Celebrity Cruises president and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said there is no better way to experience Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific at sea than on Celebrity Edge.

“She’s a luxury boutique hotel, Michelin-quality dining, a luxurious spa retreat with the world at your service,” she said.

“We are so excited to offer such a truly special vacation experience Down Under.”

Celebrity Cruises’ vice president and managing director of Australia and the Asia-Pacific, Tim Jones, said Celebrity Edge has changed how people view a cruise holiday.

“She is in a class of her own with a plethora of firsts on board,” he said.

“We have long-anticipated her arrival to the region. This is a moment of real celebration for Australian travellers and Celebrity Cruises.”
