Celebrity Cruises has always offered an incredible experience. One of the newest ships in their fleet – Celebrity Edge – continues that tradition by taking the concept of modern luxury and enhancing it in every way. The result is a truly stunning ship that has set the tone for the future of contemporary five-star cruising.
With so much to do and enjoy onboard Celebrity Edge, we have narrowed down our favourite experiences, so you can make the most of your time on board.
“You will love Celebrity if you are a couple or travelling with a group of friends, you like to eat out in different restaurants and you enjoy visiting a lot of different destinations. Celebrity Edge is a lovely ship that is large enough to have plenty of space and things to do, but small enough not to get lost and still have a great atmosphere. The service on board is outstanding and the food is fantastic, as are the cocktails.”
Celebrity Cruises has teamed up with some of the world’s best interior designers to create beautifully-appointed staterooms and suites. Edge Staterooms have an Infinite Balcony, where at the touch of a button, your entire living space becomes your balcony.
But the pinnacle of Celebrity Edge’s accommodation are the Edge Villas. These six, two-storey luxury residences are the first of their kind in the fleet. Each offers a spacious 950-square-feet of split-level splendour with one bedroom or two bathrooms, making it perfect for up to four guests. There is also an outdoor living space with a private seating area and plunge pool, and they also have direct access to The Retreat, an exclusive area for suite-class guests.
Prepare yourself for jaw-dropping views as you soar over the ocean on the innovative Magic Carpet. The highlight of Celebrity’s outward-facing vision, this incredible feat of engineering is the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform, reaching 13 stories above sea level.
Inside, the Magic Carpet is a multi-purpose venue, with its mood and function changing with its position. At the top of the ship, the Magic Carpet becomes an extraordinary venue, where al fresco dining is taken to the next level, and you’ll be able to enjoy sumptuous fare on the glass-fronted balcony. Down on Deck 14, it becomes a stunning extension of the main pool area, while on Deck 5, it serves as an unforgettable, open-air dining experience, offering a unique seafood menu throughout the day.
“Celebrity Edge has lots of speciality restaurants and fantastic bars on board, as well as a lawn club with real grass where you can have a picnic. There are so many things on board for kids to do and, for couples or groups, they have some amazing itineraries. Having sailed with them five times, Celebrity is definitely my favourite cruise line.”
Another feature of its outward-facing vision, Celebrity has created a window to the world known as Eden – three levels of sensory experiences completely wrapped in glass. With over 11,800 square feet of event space, Eden is the ideal location to host engaging business luncheons, magical wedding celebrations and any event you can dream up – all to the backdrop of million-dollar views.
Eden features a lively, open-air kitchen and menus that deliver sensory and experiential dishes served by performance artists. There’s also entertainment produced by Variety Worldwide – a leader in fusing non-traditional theatre with nightlife and dining – making for incredible evening experiences, while in the morning, Eden is used as a relaxation space where guests can unwind.
Celebrity Edge has raised the bar on holiday entertainment with an onboard offering that is carefully crafted and technologically mind-blowing. The ship has a fully-contemporary theatre where everything from whimsical productions to edgy experiences take place as well as Camp at Sea, an interactive and amazing learning space for children, with over 500 activities and enriching daily programmes. There’s also the Resort Deck, a multi-functional paradise that merges modern luxury and cool innovation with a rooftop garden, live musical performances and much more.
Visionary design and innovative entertainment come together through the collaborative genius of award-winning Scott Butler, world-renowned industrial designer and art director, Patricia Urquiola and Tom Wright, an internationally acclaimed architect and designer of the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.
Whether you want to clear your mind, keep up your fitness regime or simply rest and revitalise, The Spa on Celebrity Edge is the awe-inspiring escape you deserve. The Spa’s SEA Thermal Suite features eight distinctive therapeutic experiences, all inspired by nature to create one incredible place to relax and connect with fellow wellness enthusiasts, while a varied menu of treatments and therapies is available, from soothing sound therapy to an ELEMIS® Thousand Flower Detox Wrap.
Fitness fanatics will love The Fitness Centre, which features an extensive range of weight machines and cardio equipment as well as floor-to-ceiling windows that look out across the ocean, and there’s even a salon and barber, so you can be pampered and groomed as the ship sails on to the next port.
Celebrity Edge has a range of exciting upcoming voyages to Europe, North America and the Caribbean. Discover the fascinating history of Rome, beautiful architecture of Barcelona and the grand opulence of Monaco on a 7-night Italy, Spain and Monaco cruise, relax on the pristine beaches of Florida, Mexico and the Cayman Islands on a 7-night Western Caribbean adventure or savour one of many other brilliant itineraries.
