We had been looking forward to our trip on the edge as loyal celebrity cruisers but I have to say it was not the best. I loved our room and Blu restaurant but there are so few venues and the same 3 groups just kept rotating thru the 3 venues. Gone is the world class bar and the grand lobby bar so the only venues are the martini bar, the club and the Eden. Don't think I'll do the edge again but stick to the silhouette class ships. The room had plenty of storage and feels bigger with infinite veranda but I actually missed having an actual veranda. In a way it was a blessing because we had terrible weather but still I missed having an actual veranda. The spa was okay but again, I missed being able to go from our rooms to the spa without having to get on an elevator. Read Less

First - we were very surprised and privileged to be on this particular trip: This was in celebration of International Women's Day and our bridge crew (as well as many department heads) were all women. They refereed to themselves as Oceans 27. Our Captain Kate McCue and her staff were always present throughout the cruise, ready for a quick discussion. Captain Kate also did a Q&A about her journey to her captaincy. A truly remarkable woman!!! As we were just moving out of Ft. Lauderdale, Captain Kate comes on to tell us that du to ocean conditions being a bit rough we were gong to have to slow our journey down to keep both the ship safe and the passengers comfortable. My first thought - can I swim back to the port if I jumped now? Was not looking forward to a rocking cruise! The bad news continued - we were not going to make our port call in Tortola. Not a huge low because now we were going to get a full day in San Juan vs. just a few hours. So all in all good news. We got an extra day to truly experience and explore the Edge. And what a time it was! This ship is incredibly beautiful, stunning, very edgy in design. A very modern, sleek concept - not your typical cruise ship. The stores are a bit high end. The decor and layout of the ship is very pleasing. The restaurants extremely different not only in design but by food choices and cuisines. what is particularly appealing about the restaurant, you hae a choice a four to to go for your select dining. Our group was assigned to Cyprus (the greek themed restaurant) and we all gathered there the fist night. We all splintered off in other directions to try the other restaurants. Absolutely for a very unique experience, try Eden Restaurant! Live performers entertain, the food is beautifully presented and just the experience of the restaurant is worth the upgrade charge. The buffet is as expected. Many good choices. What we enjoyed was the made to order stations (two) Plenty of seating if you walk away from the main area where everyone seems to congregate. The roof top garden was breathtaking with it's sculpture. There's also a big screen up there and plenty of lounge chairs. Also a big screen by the pool area but it is noisier. Highly recommend the adults only pool space if you are not traveling with young ones or teens. The only issue is that since it is glass domed, it does get a bit humid in there and even though the windows do crank open, we didn't see anyone doing this. The walking/jogging track is unusual in that it goes over two decks so you get a good feel for different levels of walking. It is completely outside and the views and fresh air is wonderful. Take the Inside Access Tour!!! Very interesting. Note - you do have to wear long pants and closed shoes. I didn't pick up on this when making the reservation and unfortunately my husband had to back out because all he had was dress shoes and long dress pants, not particularly good for an access tour. You get to tour the provisions area, laundry area, engine control room, crew lounge, galleys and the best part - The Bridge!!! The tour is roughly about two hours and you get earbuds to listen to the tour leader as not to be distracted by other noises. I feel it is a bit pricey at $140 USD per person; it really should be about $50/$75 range. If you can spring the cost (use your ship credit) it is definitely worth it. Entertainment on board - well, not particularly our taste. Again very innovative, contemporary, modern dance, singing and song interpretations. All was okay but again not our taste but the main theater is again something new and different in cruising. The on board arts/crafts, enrichments, were good and fun. Read Less

My husband and I just returned from a week on the Edge. After reading the reviews I was concerned that maybe we should have stuck with a Solstice class ship. I worried for nothing! We were in Aqua class so this may not apply everywhere but unlike the reviews, there was beautiful bath products including body lotion, not plain wrap as I had read. Also, Elite level guests can have drinks from 5 to 7 in any bar except the Magic carpet and are not relegated to the Club lounge which can be a bit dark. The ship is beautifully decorated with interesting and fun areas and furniture. Eden is a fantastic place and the show very different and exciting. We loved the infinity balcony. You can lower it just a bit all night and hear the ocean and if too windy, you can have it up and look out....can't do this on a traditional balcony. Best of all was the entertainment. we went to at least 2 performances every night with music we loved...Jersey boys, mowtown, elvis, ABBA...there were younger passengers but the music was for everyone. Blu was as good as ever as was the service. of course, all they say about Captain Kate is true...she is the best. We can't wait to go again! Read Less
