The good: Fast embarkation, very clean, good food at main dining rooms and buffets, attentive stewards, good comedians. Some good shows which included an excellent singer. The bad: Awful ship layout, the balconies are flushed and bellow you can see the life saving boats instead of the water. Some rooms have the “magic carpet” bar passing in front of their verandas invading their privacy. The balconies at the left of it looks toward your veranda. I had one of those cabins even though I payed full price for balcony. Food in main dining takes long. At the gym no special protein shakes available like other ships. No greeting upon entry the first day, just ugly wooden statutes at view. Some ports are bad unless you are there for excursions. San Juan, and St Martin were good. I have been in 20+ cruises and this one stood out for boring, and for its bad layout. 85% of passengers were 65+. Not many activities or amenities around. Not recommended for kids our the young.

We sailed on the Edge to experience the ship and were excited to see what Edge had to offer. While Edge is a beautiful, modern, technologically advanced cruise ship, the experience is slightly different than on other Celebrity ships. Some will like this new experience and others will not. While there are pluses and minuses to the Edge, for me, there were too many minuses. Thus, the Edge will not be my ship of choice going forward. I just hope Celebrity doesn’t make too many changes during The Celebrity Revolution, when they update older ships, to change many of the things I love about the older ships. Pluses: • Embarkation in the new terminal in Ft. Lauderdale is smooth and efficient as long as other guests have their passports and Xpress Passes ready (many don’t!) • Ship has modern décor that is beautiful. I found almost all seating comfortable. As on other ships there is art everywhere. My favorite is on deck 3 starboard mid-ship. It is a display to see what the inside of the ship’s hull looks like if you strip away the interior finishing. Cool. • Elevator bays aft and forward with 6 elevators each are nice and reduces congestion in front of steps • Celebrity app worked well and is convenient to see what is happening on the ship. Only problem is you can’t manually add anything to your calendar – for example you make plans to meet friends for drinks • The new embarkation center on deck 2 is great. Very open and easy to navigate. However, be alert for the two crew doors that open into the hallway by the Basement. My wife learned of these doors the hard way – with a door to the face. • Ships climate was always comfortable • The theater is open with the stage protruding into the audience so easy to see and performers get closer to the audience • Ships stability was excellent. Many times we almost forgot we were on a ship • Infinite balcony stateroom floor to ceiling window is nice but it isn’t a balcony (see minuses for details). While the closet is a little small storage is good. USB power ports and outlets by the bed are great. There is a USB outlet on the phone that you may miss if you don’t look closely. Climate control is good and kept our room at 68 which is what we wanted. Shower in bath is larger and nice. Plenty of storage in bathroom also including a drawer under the sink which is were you find the hair dryer. Master light, window and climate control is nice. Also, if you have the Celebrity app you can control everything except the window from your phone anywhere on the ship. The “do not disturb” sign is now a magnet and is a good upgrade from the door hanger style. Mattress is firm but comfortable • Service was very good overall. Everyone was friendly and usually cheerful. Stateroom attendant was efficient. Bar service was very good at Martini bar despite how crowded it was all the time • The Magic Carpet was nice but not exceptional. Note, they often shut down their bar 15-20 minutes before the listed closing time • Pool area is good, and the two hot tubs are great. Since they are on a different deck they aren’t used as often. Thus, if you make the effort to go to one you are usually rewarded with having it to yourself - especially the forward one - or with a couple others • Food in all the restaurants was very good. Celebrity does need to do a better job with fish which is often over cooked. • Oceanview was hit and miss on food quality and open market style can create interesting (ok frustrating) encounters as there is no traffic flow. Pizza is aft which some people couldn’t seem to find • Having four smaller MDR’s versus on large makes the settings more intimate and is nice for different ambiance. • Fine Cut steakhouse was excellent • Café al Bacio by Grand Plaza has larger seating area than on other ships. It was rarely busy in the morning since there is another al Bacio at the entrance to Oceanview • The Mast grill has seating under cover so you can eat out of the sun however the seating area is very tight and the smoking section is one level above it Minuses: • Infinite balcony stateroom isn’t a balcony, rather an ocean view with a window that opens. You do not feel like you are outside on a traditional balcony. It is like sitting in your house looking out a big open window versus sitting out on your patio. It takes about 30 seconds for the window to open and about a minute for the shade to go up. If the shade is down and you want to peek out while your spouse is sleeping then you must get on your hands and knees and pull up the shade from the bottom. When you open the window the climate control turns off so if you keep the window open a long time your stateroom will become hot and humid (in the Caribbean) • Our room didn’t have facial tissue and the stateroom attendant said they didn’t get resupplied. We had to “steal” one from a public ladies’ restroom. Also, shower now has gel dispenser vs bar of soap. The gel doesn’t lather well • Public men’s restrooms have terrible sinks. They are very low with upper cabinets that hang down to the top of the faucet. If you are over 5’8’ tall you need to bend over to see the soap dispenser -which dispenses very slow so keep your hand there for at least 4 seconds – and rinse your hands. Very poor design • While the four MDR’s have different ambiance I miss the vibe, action and people-watching of the larger, 2-level MDR • Sunset bar used to be my favorite but not on Edge. It has less seating and the best seating is the smoking section. The walkway between bar and rail seating is very tight. Worst is there is zero shade, so it gets very hot. Wear your sunscreen • No Dogfish Head 90 – this is my favorite beer and a treat to have on Celebrity cruises. However, they weren’t resupplied, so I had to do without • Eden, Eden. What to say about Eden. The space is nice but they use stage fog and some weird scent at night. The fog irritates my lungs and eyes and I don’t like the smell. Even during the day you can still smell the scent. The bar is similar to World Class bar on Solstice class ships but their special drinks are expensive and most cost extra over the premium package • Not enough bars. They don’t have Ensemble Lounge, Passport bar, or Cellar Masters. Three fewer indoor bars means the Martini bar is always packed. I enjoy the various ambiances of the bars on other ships and they were very much missed on Edge • Unless you are in a suite or use the spa there is no access for you to the outside on forward decks Thus, you can’t get a forward outside view as you pull into port. There is a nice forward balcony in the spa it can only be accessed if you are using the spa. You can look out the forward window in the fitness center but they don’t have an outside balcony. I guess you now need to pony up more dollars for better views • If you are a gelato fan you may be disappointed. Edge no longer has a dedicated gelato area. It can be found with the ice cream outside Oceanview but with only 2 flavors available each day. They do rotate flavors • Edge does not have the soaring, open grand plaza. Its grand plaza is only open to 3 decks • Showtimes have been changed to 7:30 and 9:30 when all other Celebrity cruises we’ve been on had show times of 7 and 9. We had pre-booked dining at 8 so we could see the show before eating but needed to either cut out of the show early or be late to dinner. Read Less

We have never been on a new ship and wanted the experience. We were not disappointed. You have a choice of 4 main restaurants each with its on ambience. The food was great and plentiful. There was no need to spend extra money on specialty restaurants. The atmosphere was unbelievable and one could see that Celebrity spared no expense. There were so many different area on the ship where you can enjoy the scenery from Eden to the Roof Top Garden. The only disappointment were the shows and the reason for only 4 stars. They were more of a Cirque du Soleil but not your typical shows. While we enjoyed the dancing and acrobatics, we just could not follow the theme. They were very eye appealing, but that was it. All in all I had a very nice time. There were many venues where you could just relax. The spiral ramp way in Eden at the rear of the ship was such a place with a magnificent view of the plants or ocean from the floor to ceiling windows. I would certainly recommend taking a cruise on this ship, but at a minimum the “Infinite Veranda” should be the cabin selected. This cabin provides additional room space since it becomes part of your room with a window that you can raise or lower with your finger. Read Less
