A photo tour of Celebrity Edge in its French shipyard

With only weeks until its maiden voyage in Florida on November 25, Celebrity Edge is still looking largely like a building site at its shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. But on a visit today, I found some of the areas – like the signature Magic Carpet restaurant – almost finished. Here is a selection of images from the day.
