Recently, Chantier del'Atlantique, a French shipyard, held a keel laying ceremony for the fifth Edge class cruise ship "Celebrity Xcel" built for the Royal Caribbean Group's delicate cruises.


The Celebrity Xcel is the last of five Edge class cruise ships in the Exquisite Cruise Line series, and is scheduled to be delivered for operation in the fall of 2025. This series of ships has a total length of 327 meters, a width of 39 meters, a height of 57.9 meters, a draft of 8.2 meters, a total of 21 decks, a total tonnage of 140600 tons, and a maximum capacity of 3937 passengers and 1416 crew members.


Unlike the first four ships, the Celebrity Xcel will be equipped with engines capable of using three types of fuels for the first time, including methanol and two traditional types of fuel. The new engine, supplied by Wartsila, will provide unparalleled fuel flexibility and advance the Royal Caribbean Group's decades long commitment to sustainable development.


The Celebrity Xcel will make its debut in the Caribbean Sea in November 2025, with its maiden season departing from Fort Lauderdale and alternating seven nights between the Bahamas, Mexico, the Cayman Islands, the Port of Plata, St. Thomas Island, and St. Martin Island.


"Every new ship is an opportunity for us to achieve net zero emissions," said Jason Liberty, President and CEO of the Royal Caribbean Group. "Through the 'Celebrity Xcel', we are building our first cruise ship that can use methanol, which will help drive our transition to a future energy platform."


Laura Hodges Bethge, President of Exquisite Cruises, said, "We are eager to make the 'Celebrity Xcel' and its unparalleled tourist experience debut. We are very grateful for our continued cooperation with Atlantic Shipyard, who have further enhanced the innovative design and world-class features of our beloved Edge series cruise ships with their exquisite craftsmanship."


Laurent Castaing, General Manager of Atlantic Shipyard, continued, "The Edge series is the result of close collaboration between exquisite cruise ships and the Atlantic Shipyard team. We understand each other, trust each other, work together harmoniously, and provide passengers with a unique and sustainable experience."
