Taking to the seas at the end of 2018, 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, 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, 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 t Celebrity Edge’s accommodation offerings is the ‘infinite verandah’, 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, 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 classic menus 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 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 stars when the sun sets.
DESIGNED TO LEAVE THE FUTURE BEHIND
Perhaps the most talked about feature of 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 at 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.
The ship will also boast another evolving dining and entertainment venue – Eden. At 12,000 square feet in size, with three-storey, panoramic windows and al fresco dining, Eden provides a spectacular setting for breakfasts, lunches, dinners and celebrations.
Or for something a little more playful, head to the Rooftop Garden, a living urban playscape, reminiscent of childhood playgrounds. Then delve into the Retreat Sun Deck, a chic open-air paradise complete with large swimming pool, two-storey hot tubs and even pool butlers.
See Europe in a New Light
Celebrity Edge’s 2019 sailing season will see her explore the delights of Europe – navigating the storied waters around the Mediterranean. Rome, Naples, Barcelona, Monte Carlo and more are yours to experience from the deck of Celebrity Edge. Arrive in ancient cities and delightful regions in the ultra-luxury surroundings of this next generation ship.
Whether you’re savouring the tapas culture in Catalonia, picking out your dream yacht in Monaco or stretching out on the beaches of Mallorca – there’s something for everyone during your European adventure on board Celebrity Edge.
