There is much to love about Celebrity Edge, the newest cruise ship of 2018 and the first new launch for Celebrity Cruises in more than half a decade, but she’s not perfect.

Celebrity Cruises accepted delivery of Celebrity Edge, its first new ship in six years Wednesday, at a ceremony at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique (STC France) shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France.
