Royal Caribbean International has announced a massive nine-month world cruise that will begin in October 2019.
Passengers will cruise around the globe from Mexico to Europe for more than 40 days, including seven cruises through the Caribbean.
The Celebrity Edger is a mega-size ship that will offer passengers more than 15 decks and three distinct public spaces, including the Escape from Waterpark terrace and Storybook Fantasy ship theater. In December, Royal Caribbean will take delivery of the ship, making it the second Celebrity Edger built by the cruise line.
Celebrity Edger also includes an Innovations Zone where you can learn from the world’s best stars in 15 new shows and activities.
And, if that wasn’t enough, there’s a 102-foot observation deck and “extraordinary sound and light elements” through the 91 staterooms.
Additional features include 42 palm-frond equipped cabanas, two pools with multiple water zones, and the Alchemy Bar with a three-story catwalk and bistro.
The public spaces are highlighted by Water Works, which contains 3,600 feet of pools and waterslides, including a new FlowRider surf simulator, plus the FlowRider Family Adventure, complete with a wrangler for the youngest guests, plus endless sand in the sand play areas for an adult picnic. There’s also Phantasy Garden, The Edge Jr., and much more.
The ship will have a total of 4,260 guests, including 1,799 staterooms for guests who are 15 years and older, with 200 family rooms.
The ship will have roughly 44 more cabins than previous Celebrity ships, which makes for larger spaces with more comfort.
The ship will also have one more piece of major news with the introduction of a 1,000-square-foot underwater “Submarine Lounge.” There’s even a winery on the ship, offering plenty of options.
The ship will depart from the Port of Los Angeles for seven weeks beginning Oct. 18, then start sailing in Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas. The cruise will continue through November and December, arriving in Barcelona, Spain, before heading to the Mediterranean for Europe.
In March 2020, the ship will return to the ports in Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Panama, Tahiti, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Rotterdam, Rotterdam and Lisbon, Portugal.
Celebrity Edger will leave every weekend for a week.
