Originally from France, relocated to Quebec, he is curious about everything, from what is happening in his own backyard to what's going on at the other end of the world.

Celebrity Cruises will add a fifth Edge class vessel to its fleet. 

The news was announced by Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO, Celebrity Cruises, on Twitter.

Celebrity's parent company, Royal Caribbean Cruises,  has signed an agreement with the French shipyard Chantiers de l'Atlantique for this new vessel, which is scheduled for delivery in the fall of 2024.

Celebrity Edge: a revolution

With the arrival of the Celebrity Edge last December, the cruise line has a new generation of ships and aims to revolutionize the future of the cruise industry with innovations and state-of-the-art equipment.

These include new cabs creating a closer connection with the ocean: a simple click of a button, and the glass will slide. The design of these cabins will add 23 per cent more space in square feet and 10 per cent more for bathrooms than on Class Solstice ships.

But the most striking innovation of the Edge class is undoubtedly the Magic Carpet, which is the size of a tennis court, and will provide various experiences throughout the day.

At the top of the ship, on deck 16, the Magic Carpet will become an ultimate specialty restaurant offering a "dinner on the edge" for 90 guests. Next to Deck 14, the Magic Carpet will be an outdoor extension of the main pool. 

On Deck 5, the Magic Carpet will extend one of the specialty restaurants offering the most extraordinary outdoor seats imaginable, and at its lowest position on deck 2, the Magic Carpet will be a boarding and disembarking station luxury.

Three ships identical in all respects to the Celebrity Edge will be built by 2022, one per year.
