Taking to the seas at the end of 2018, the Celebrity Edge promises to welcome in a new age of cruising. Packed full of innovative new features and luxury flourishes, the vessel is set to be the first member of Celebrity Cruises’ exciting Edge Class of ships, to be joined by three more ships by 2022.
It has been more than six years since Celebrity Cruises added a new ship to their fleet, and their team have spent this time designing and crafting a ship which looks set to appeal to a wide and discerning audience. Set to become one of the most exciting landmark moments in recent cruising history, the Celebrity Edge promises luxury on an unrivalled scale.
Introduced during a massive industry event, Celebrity Edge is more than just another cruise ship, it could be the ship around which all future ships are based.
Promising incredible levels of luxury and decadence on the seas, the Celebrity Edge has a high percentage of large suites and villas for guests to relax in after another exciting day exploring the world. One of the most exciting features of the Celebrity Edge’s accommodation offerings is the ‘infinite veranda’, allowing the beautiful vistas surrounding the ship spill into the delightfully-appointed suites.
Guests can now get right up to the edge of the ship, almost touching the Caribbean waters they are passing through, offering a most immersive experience for first-time cruisers and experienced sea dogs alike.
With Bulgari bath products and sophisticated flourishes throughout, the Celebrity Edge suites promise to offer accommodation to rival even the most luxurious on-land hotels. With a series of relaxing itineraries planned for the ship, the Celebrity Edge will provide the perfect platform to truly recharge and refresh during a week or so at sea.
Celebrity Cruises have a fierce reputation for providing exquisite and varied dining options aboard every single one of their vessels. From traditional classics to modern haute cuisine, all using the freshest ingredients sourced from around the world, the on-board fare has been designed to stimulate every taste bud and every palate.
This trend will undoubtedly continue aboard the Celebrity Edge, with the cruise line eager to treat guests to the finest food and drink on the open seas. Restaurants and bars will be announced in the coming months, but we do already know that one of the ship’s most exciting features, the Magic Carpet, will play host to an outdoor restaurant with panoramic views at lunchtime and a romantic dining venue under the starts when the sun sets.
Perhaps the most talked about feature of the Celebrity Edge is the Magic Carpet, an amazing feat of engineering which will serve as gangway, public space and restaurant. As mentioned above, the Magic Carpet, will be home to multiple dining areas through the week and will undoubtedly become one of the main focal points of the ship.
Designed by leading architect, Tom Wright (designer of the Burj Al Arab in Dubai), the Magic Carpet is perched to the side of the ship and can move up and down the decks, between deck 2 and deck 16. As well as transporting guests from port to ship without the need for a gangway, the Magic Carpet is an attractive and welcoming venue in its own right.
Due to take to the seas in December 2018, Celebrity Edge will be deployed on the ever-popular cruise ship route through the Caribbean. Completing a selection of eastern and western European itineraries, the Celebrity Edge will transport guests to some of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring locations on the planet.
Navigating from paradise island to paradise island, the Celebrity Edge will undoubtedly offer some of the most luxurious and unforgettable cruise experiences available.
