The yet-to-be-named ship is scheduled for delivery in the fall of 2024.

The 140,600 GT ship was ordered following the delivery of lead ship, Celebrity Edge, in 2018. It will measure 327 meters in length and have a breadth of 39 meters.

Three other Edge-class ships were ordered by the cruise line earlier and are scheduled for delivery in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

“After the four Millennium-class ships at the beginning of 2000’s and the four Edge-class ships, this is the ninth ship ordered by Celebrity Cruises at our shipyard and it will be the 24th vessel built by Chantiers de l’Atlantique and operated by RCL,” said Laurent Castaing, General Manager, Chantiers de l’Atlantique.
