This was our 27th cruise, 1st-time Celebrity Cruise. We couldn't have been happier. My husband and I are 52 years old, we have no kids. I love to have options when we travel. On a cruise there is always the option to do nothing, however, there is not always the option to do everything (except for now!). The Celebrity Edge, aside from the fact that it's absolutely modern and gorgeous, it was so much fun! We were worried about the fun. We had the preconceived notion that this was a company for retirees, people who like it "quiet". This ship had more fun going on than do I dare say it...The Fun ships??!! It did. But there are plenty of quiet spaces as well. Newest movies every night are played at the Rooftop Garden around 10-10:30pm. Multiple Trivia thru-out every single day. Loads of entertainments everywhere, from live singers & bands to the shows in the evening. But my absolute favorite...Silent Disco. Fun for all ages, it's hysterical to watch and a blast to participate in. There is so much going on, it was actually hard to fit it all in. The food was excellent. The 4 main dining rooms were beautiful, try to eat each one if you can, the menus vary slightly per dining room. Le Petite Chef was fun, and delicious, and did I mention fun?? Service was above and beyond, and I'm picky. We had an oceanview room at 200sq ft. and it was very comfortable. 50-55" interactive flat panel TVs on the wall. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Bottom line we loved it and we booked 2 more future cruises while on board. Hopefully, you'll love it too. Read Less

I have so many good things to say about this cruise. The cabin was extremely spacious, the wait staff in the multiple dining rooms were excellent, the food was delicious and the spa service on the ship was wonderful. Unfortunately, I still do have some concerns with the Edge, one of them being the bar service. There is only bar available on the resort deck, and it was extremely difficult to get a drink. This boat held about 3000 passengers and at least 50% of the passengers would be on the pool deck. They had ample seating which was great, but to get a drink I had to wait at least 15 mins and that was the time it took for me to get it myself, don’t even get me started on the time it took to order it from a server. Seriously celebrity, you thought 4 bars on the ship were enough to accommodate 3000+ guests. Another HUGE problem was the provisions. By the 5th day the ship was out of sparkling water, by the 6th day all the bars were out of frozen drink mix, as well as certain dishes offered on their signature mdr menu. I was shocked. Celebrity is one of the biggest cruise lines in the industry and your telling me they can’t provide enough sparkling water for the course of 7 days? Another inconvenience on board were the hot tubs. The iconic martini glass design was gorgeous, but oh so impractical. To enter the hottub, I had to climb 3 flights of stairs and walk halfway across the pool deck. Let’s just say I got plenty of steps in on the days I chose to relax in the hot tub. Some more of the good about this ship was the SEA thermal suite. It was gorgeous and extremely relaxing, it was worth the steep price tag. Another great thing was the food. By far the best food I’ve ever had on a ship. Normandie was our favourite restaurant by far, followed by Cyprus, Cosmo and Tuscan. This ship is amazing, but definitely has some work to do in order to truly make this a celebrity standard ship.

This ship might be right for you but not even close for us. Well, where do I start? The positives are a short list. So let’s start there. The ship is beautiful, IF you like that type of ambiance. Glass, glass, glass not 100% clean, lots of steel and marble looking flooring. The crew is the most wonderful crew I have ever been with. 70 cruises and they were the nicest and most helpful they could have been. Celebrity picked the cream of the crop for the crew. OK, that is it for the positives. Now, Not talking about temperature, it has a very cold feeling. Hard and void of color. 90% of the seating is not comfortable at all. Either not cushioned at all or thin cushioned hard seats. Most seats are impossible to sit back on unless you are 8ft. tall. If you scoot back on the seat, you feel like a little child with your feet straight out. On deck 15 for get it completely. Total waste. There is no sitting comfortable at all unless you are eating. By the way, check out the specialty dining prices. Not worth those prices. Unbelievably high. So far out of wack. Stained carpeting throughout the ship. No excuses for that at all. The show at the EDEN is a total joke. Look at several YouTube videos of the ship. Especially that one. You will laugh and scratch your head wondering what the heck are they doing. Hopping around, jumping like frogs etc. Lots of wood statues that look stupid, one big black horse on deck 15 totally out of place on any ship. So much wasted space. On deck 5 from the elevators to the BLUE dining. You walk through a hall that is blacked out with sparkled flooring that is lit with ultraviolet lighting. The walls are all mirrors. More wasted space. Not enough places to enjoy in the evenings. Very few bars. The music is very limited to say the least. Only ONE location on the ship and is crowded most of the time. Deck 3,that is the martini bar. Not big at all with very limited seating. Those seats are Okay. Many sit at the cappuccino bar on deck 4 directly above the martini bar to listen to music on deck 3 coming from the martini bar. Those seats are NOT comfortable at all. Activities are very limited. Disco dancing with head phones to hear the music. A few trivia’s where you use paper and pencil. Other trivia where you use an iPad or iPhone to play. If you are not super, super fast. There is no way you will win. Very few of those anyhow. Instead of Bingo they have Deal or No Deal. That is also a big rip off. You pay $25.00 for a card that has the 20 cases on them. A random pick of who will play. There are 2 games per session. That was twice during the cruise. As the person that was picked to pay, picks a case, you turn over your case on the card to reveal the amount. If it matches theirs, you have one case that is good. You must get at least two, to get anything. The first 6 tiers are nothing more that match play in the casino. Meaning if you get two cases you now win $5 for match play all the way up to $200 match play. Then you must get 7 matching cases to win $500 and 8 matching to win $1000 the most I saw was 4 matching and they won $50 match play. Meaning you come up with $50 and they give you $50 to play in the casino. It is not cash. The only person that gets cash is the actual person playing that got picked. One person got $1.00, another $50.00, another $125 and the last was $396. The vast majority only got one case that matches. No Bingo, We miss bingo. Yes one slot tournament 7 day cruise. They had only one regular tournament. $25.00 to play. Only a 2 min. game. There were two free ones. Those were 1 min long. They gave away fake earrings. The last tournament was for women only on woman’s day. Same winnings. They have archery, I played, once and got the highest score. You get nothing. They call it an experience not a competition. They do not have a mini golf on the ship. They have putting on the carpet in the EDEN on deck 5. You putt to get it in a cup for points and the winner gets a prize. How exciting! They have 4 dining rooms. We did not eat in any of them, so I cannot say anything about those. We ate in the buffet. What we did eat was good. However, unless you are a master of the world, there is no way you know what is in those pots. I cannot ever pronounce most of what they were serving. Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Asian. Also Grilled, pork chops, minute steak, chicken, fish 98% of this exactly the same every lunch and dinner. Most of the deserts were all cake. EVERY DAY, lunch and dinner 98% the same. One roasted pig, with the head. Roasted duck. Enough pork every day to stuff a horse. I was told we missed the southern fried chicken. Do not know how. My wife had the New England clam chowder. It was so spicy she could not eat it. Since when do you spice up that? Even the roasted potatoes were very spicy. Most all even said spicey on the name plate. Only the soup was hot, temperature wise. . Nothing else was hot. Mostly warm to actually cold for the hot items. The meatloaf was actually cold, not even warm. Isn’t the food to be at a certain temperature to keep it safe? The buffet in the evening was sparse with people. Guess most ate in the 4 dining rooms and the specialty restaurants. The burgers were good and the fry’s. The hot dogs were not good. They had breaded fish. Not fried long enough. The inside of the coating was not done, gooey. Also, I do not like warm fish. The blood line, the black stuff. A lot of it. Gives it that old fish taste, Terrible. The mashed potatoes had a lot of the black that you usually cut out of the potato. The layout of the ship it dumb. At the stern is the pizza, mid ship is the buffet forward past the Olympic pool is the burgers and fry’s. That is a long walk. All other ships put those close to the buffet. The is no way to stay out of the rain going from the buffet to the burgers. Never had a chance to try the magic carpet. It was either locked or dining time. Once on deck 5 it was open but totally packed. When dining, it was on deck 14. The table cloths and the women’s hair were blowing all over the place. How can you eat in that condition? All the seating between the buffet and the mast grill get soaked when it rains. I am not talking about the lounge chairs by the pool either. Lunch at the EDEN “Forget it”. Sandwiches and soup. Not only do they have very little. There is no seating with tables to eat at. Woops, yes there were 4, 2 seats each. The state room was small but nice. Drab, no color. The sink was way too long taking up a lot of counter space. The shower stall was excellent and big. The toilet has a fast short flush. Guess to save on water. Problem, you needed to flush it 2 or 3 times for all to be disposed of. One guy told us he like the sink to wash his clothes in the nice big sink. Really! I am posting a few pictures. You may laugh. One is the soap they give you. It has coarse something in it. Looks like ants. You look at it. No sense posting pictures of the ship. You can see them all over Google. Cabin was the ocean view,regular window. If you like a bed that is super hard. It is for you. The couch, the same. Closet is very small but fine for 7 days. Safe is super small. On the other hand the TV is very big. The amount of money they spent on this ship and get terrible satellite reception. Docked in Key West, the NEWS channels were not watchable. The ship can handle the rough seas extremely well. One tour we took was in Grand Cayman. It was called “Trolley Roger”. Only $34 each to be an hour long with a pirate conducting the tour. My grandson wanted pictures of the pirate. This is what it ended up being. A jeep pulling a boat looking bunch of seats. Well, no pirate guide, just the driver and the tour, from the time we got on till the time we got off, only 40 min. long not an hour. That is about it. Well, I am sure I missed a lot. I cannot figure out who they are trying to cater to. Definitely the very wealthy. So many on the ship were the uptown type of people. Those that show off all their very expensive clothing and jewelry with their noses in the air. Two very nice ladies, one was the others maid. Showed us the castle they live in, in England. I said, nice castle, she replied only a small one. Only has 7 bedrooms, 2 cooks and a chef, 3 maids and 3 care takers for the lawn and flower garden. Showed us a picture of the buffet they through for a party. Made the one on the ship look very bad. As I am sure you can figure out. This ship is not for us. Needless to say we will never cruise on the EDGE again. We previously booked the APEX and I cancelled it. Maybe for you, but not even close to our cup of tea. This ship is NOT for children. Not much for them to do outside. Really nothing to do but drink, drink and drink more. Try to listen to music you might like. Only two places to really do that. The shows were good. The comedian was fair. You may love the ship. To each their own. Not the usual cruise ship you would expect. RCCL Serenade of the Seas for the ones who love a nautical theme ship with great food. A lot to do and a serene ship. Also Not for children. The Harmony. You might think crowded. This EDGE was actually crowded. Not the Harmony, so big and people just scatter. Awesome food and awesome for children. So many we talked to agreed. You may not believe this, but two liked it. So that’s it. Pardon the pun, but our opinion. Celebrity missed the boat with this one. Happy cursing!!! Read Less
