The first of the 117,000-ton Celebrity “Edge” class ships enters service from Fort Lauderdale in December 2018.

Last week, on the event of Seatrade Cruise Global in Fort Lauderdale, Celebrity Cruises  released the first detailed images of its five new 2,900-berth “Edge” class ships. Also from Miami comes word of orders for four X-Bow expedition cruise ships for Sunstone Ships. On the other side of the Atlantic, meanwhile, the UK’s Arena Travel announced its acquisition of The River Cruise Line and the UK & Ireland hit a new cruise record with 1.9 million cruisers in 2016, although this is still short of Germany’s 2.02 million.
