Pictures of Celebrity Edge

  • 1

    Celebrity Cruises' next new ship, Celebrity Edge, is packed full of innovation. When the ship debuts in fall 2018, it will be the first new ship for the cruise line since Celebrity Reflection came out in 2012.

    One of the highlights of the ship is the Magic Carpet (pictured), an industry first. The Magic Carpet is a movable deck space that is cantilevered over the side of Celebrity Edge. The size of a tennis court, it is designed to help passengers during disembarkation in tender ports, but it will serve double-duty as an entertainment space or restaurant depending on what deck it's on: embarkation/disembarkation will be from Deck 2; al fresco dining at lunch time will be on Deck 5; happy hour on Deck 14 (the pool deck); and the alternative dining option will be offered in the evening on Deck 16. Passengers will not be permitted on the Magic Carpet when it is in motion.

    The Resort Deck

    The Resort Deck, a.k.a. the pool deck, is on Deck 14 and features an above-pool brushed steel sculpture and martini glass Jacuzzis. To the right in this rendering are the for-fee cabanas, flanked by tree sculptures. Chaise lounge chairs around the sides of the ship face out, toward the ocean.

    Private Cabanas

    Celebrity Edge will feature six two-deck-high private cabanas, which will require a fee.

    Infinite Veranda

    Another first in ocean cruising is the Infinite Veranda, which combines indoor and outdoor space in one balcony-type area. The balcony can be closed off from the rest of the cabin with bi-fold doors (creating an actual balcony), or the bi-fold doors can be left open, providing 23 percent more living space in the cabin. With the touch of a button, passengers can raise or lower a glass window on the balcony, shutting out the elements. When the balcony is opened to the room and the window is closed, the whole space is air-conditioned. Edge will have 918 Infinite Veranda cabins, 16 of which accommodate single travelers -- another first for the line.

    Penthouse Suite

    The Penthouse Suite -- in fact, all cabins on Celebrity Edge -- was devised by award-winning London designer Kelly Hoppen.

    Iconic Suite

    One of two new suite classes, the Iconic Suite is a whopping 5,000 square feet. The ship will feature two of these suites, which are located right on top of the bridge. The suite includes a large living and dining area.

8 Best Luxury Cruise Ships
The moment you step aboard a luxury cruise ship, a hostess is at your arm proffering a glass of bubbly while a capable room steward offers to heft your carry-on as he escorts you to what will be your home-away-from-home for the next few days. You stow your things (likely in a walk-in closet) and then emerge from your suite to get the lay of the ship. As you walk the decks, friendly crew members greet you ... by name. How can that be? You just set foot onboard! First-class, personalized service is just one of the hallmarks of luxury cruise lines. You can also expect exotic itineraries, varying degrees of inclusivity in pricing, fine wines and gourmet cuisine as well as universally high crew-to-passenger ratios. That being the case, you might think any old luxury cruise ship will do, but that's not quite true. Like people, cruise ships have their own unique personalities -- and some will be more suited to your vacation style than others. Lines like SeaDream might not offer the most spacious suites, but their intimate yachts can stealthily visit ports that large ships can't manage. Regent Seven Seas and Oceania Cruises are owned by the same parent company but Regent offers a completely inclusive vacation experience, while Oceania draws travelers with a more independent streak. Take a look at Cruise Critic's list of best luxury cruise lines and ships to see which one resonates with you.
Cruise Packing 101
There once was a not-so-savvy seafarer who didn't feel right unless she took two steamer trunks crammed with outfits on every cruise. This, she learned, was not a good idea. Besides incurring the wrath of her male traveling companion, who pointed out that he would have to wrestle with excess baggage through airport terminals and beyond, she quickly tired of cramming her belongings into tiny closets and bureaus. The now savvy seafarer follows her own packing 101 rule: Thou shalt put into one's suitcase only that which will fit neatly in the allocated storage space without hogging every available nook and cranny for thyself. Following that advice is getting easier these days because, for the most part, cruising has become a much more casual vacation -- even on luxury and traditional lines. Plus, with airlines charging to check bags and imposing extra fees for overweight luggage), it's just plain economical to pack light. To do so, you need to have a good sense of what you’re going to wear on a cruise so you don't pack your entire closet. If you're wondering what to bring on your next cruise, here are our guidelines for what you'll need to pack.
6 Cruise Ship Cabins to Avoid
You might expect loud noises, close quarters and crazy maneuvers in the dance club onboard your cruise ship -- but not in your cabin. Even if you don't plan to spend much time there, it should be a restful and private place so you can maintain that much-needed vacation stamina. To help you do so, we've compiled a list of cabins you'll want to avoid booking if closet-like dimensions or scraping chair sounds overhead aren't appealing to you. Heed our advice, and you might be feeling a bit less claustrophobic and a tad more refreshed come disembarkation.
