What's all the buzz? Celebrity Cruises has done it again with their new ship, Celebrity Edge! The inaugural cruise was in December 2018 and everyone is still talking about the unique experiences and luxury at sea. With even more suites than previous Celebrity Cruises ships, there are more areas for suite guests to enjoy. But there is no need to upscale your cruise to have a spectacular cruise vacation. The new dining options, entertainment venues, and stateroom design are cutting edge and will impress everyone with a luxury experience. Admittedly, I haven't had the opportunity to cruise on this beautiful ship. But there are more than a few reasons that are enticing me to experience Celebrity Edge.
Chris Caulfield of CruiseOne has personally captured all of the fantastic photographs below for this photo tour that highlights the Celebrity Edge features not to miss. Take a look and see for yourself what the buzz is all about.
Ready to cruise?
Before you even step on board, download the new Celebrity Cruises app on your smartphone through Apple or Google Play. This guides you through the boarding process once at the terminal and onto the ship. When you are on board, check out your app to explore features like itinerary information, dining, shore excursions, and more.
WHAT TO DO
This newest top deck feature is reminiscent of the playful green grass that Celebrity Cruises has always been known for. It's a relaxing retreat during the day and dances with light at night. Watch a movie or enjoy BBQ favorites and drinks at the Rooftop Garden Grill specialty restaurant.
You can relax on a lounger inside the pool on this stunning pool deck. Just imagine the amazing view from the elevated hot tub.
The Solarium has always been a favorite indoor swimming pool, especially during chilly days and evenings.
Exclusive for suite guests, enjoy stylish loungers and a private pool and hot tub in your own retreat.
Camp at sea
Camp at Sea has always been a favorite for kids (and their parents!) Celebrity Cruises staff is wonderful with children of all ages and keeps them entertained while parents enjoy their own fun. We first started cruising with Celebrity Cruises when our kids were toddlers and I've always appreciated how each age group has a designated area and choice of activities. Even teenagers have their own lounges with gaming systems and events.
How great is this barber shop for men's haircuts and shaves? Celebrity Cruises has always received top awards for the spa services and this continues on Celebrity Edge.
Seriously, everything you could want in a gym...plus an ocean view!
The Celebrity Shops
Shop in luxury. They still have my favorite Celebrity Cruises logo stores with souvenirs and sundries, but you'll also find upscale brands like Bulgari, Cartier, and Tiffany in The Celebrity Shops.
Where to Stay
PANORAMIC Ocean View Stateroom
These staterooms take it to the next level! I'm amazed at this 212 sq. ft. stateroom with floor to ceiling windows. Not only does it feel like you are bringing the outside inside, but it visually increases the stateroom size dramatically.
I've always loved a Sky Suite as the first level into the suite class. They have the perfect amount of extra space and premium amenities.
With two bedrooms, a living and dining area, terrace, and hot tub, this is luxury cruising.
How perfect are these for families?! With 950 square feet of two-story living, it even has 2 bathrooms.
You've made it! The largest suite with over 2,500 square feet, you'll have magnificent panoramic views inside and outside in unrivaled luxury.
Where to dine
This brand new experience is designed to engage all of your senses. Three levels high, this incredible architecture offers culinary classes, creative dining and cocktails, and intriguing performers as you enjoy the mesmerizing world of Eden. Eden Cafe is complimentary, while Eden Restaurant is a specialty restaurant.
When designing the Celebrity Edge, the new features and experiences are so exciting that Celebrity Cruises is going to roll this out and "revolutionize" all of their ships to the new Edge class standards. I can't wait to get on board with this new class! Like all Celebrity Cruises ships, it offers an upscale experience within a perfectly sized ship. That's why we cruise with Celebrity Cruises. The ships aren't too large or overcrowded, they provide a personal feel with a low guest to crew ratio, always maintain a high level of culinary experiences, and each ship is exquisitely decorated. You'll also find the itineraries are phenomenal and they offer a great variety of unique shore excursions.
