  3. Celebrity Edge
To begin with let me assure you that we are experienced cruisers. We take at least one cruise a year and typically two. This was our 9th cruise on Celebrity. So I believe we have some reasonable comparisons and authority for our evaluation. The Good: The ships décor in all common areas was spectacular. The three floor chandelier in the lounge area that kept beat with the music is truly special. The specialty restaurants were great! We especially enjoyed the unique aspect of the Eden. The five course dinner menu is wonderful and the desserts are fantastic. The Fine Cuts Steak House is as good a steak restaurant as you will experience. A great selection of dishes and a very good wine list. Be sure you don’t miss the show at La Petite Bistro. It is very unusual and entertaining. Bring your video camera as you will want to record this for your friends. The Bad I hadn’t realized that Celebrity had become an airline or has decided to follow the lead of the Cunard line. The Edge has decided that class envy is appropriate since certain restaurants are not available to all passengers and there is a cost to everything. Really $4 plus gratuity for two scoops of Gelato? Is that really necessary? Additionally, it is clear that Celebrity has decided to take their que from the airlines and squeeze as many cabins as possible into the ships interior all at the determent of it’s paying passengers!. The Ugly Without a doubt the stateroom was the worst part of the trip. We booked ourselves into a Concierge Class Suite. It was anything but a suite. Total square footage 201 sq.ft. The smallest suite we have ever been in and the smallest room we have been in over the past 10 years. As for the “infinite Veranda”, it a window, nothing more. It provides an additional 40 sq. ft. of space with two small chairs and a smaller table. The window only opens half of the wall so you can’t enjoy the outside. A truly waste of space and a way for the company to not have to pay to keep the veranda’s maintained. A BIG DISSAPOINTMENT. We are long time members of Captain’s Club and were sorely disappointed at the lack of treatment we received. We attended the wine tasting and walked out as the wines were of such low quality I wouldn’t drink them. As for special treatment on boarding or dismemberment forget it. It was mass confusion. TERRIBLE! Summary Will we travel with Celebrity again, probably. Will we cruise on the ship EDGE, NEVER!

The Good:

The ships décor in all common areas was spectacular. The three floor chandelier in the lounge area that kept beat with the music is truly special.

The specialty restaurants were great!

We especially enjoyed the unique aspect of the Eden. The five course dinner menu is wonderful and the desserts are fantastic.

The Fine Cuts Steak House is as good a steak restaurant as you will experience. A great selection of dishes and a very good wine list.

Be sure you don’t miss the show at La Petite Bistro. It is very unusual and entertaining. Bring your video camera as you will want to record this for your friends.

The Bad

I hadn’t realized that Celebrity had become an airline or has decided to follow the lead of the Cunard line.

The Edge has decided that class envy is appropriate since certain restaurants are not available to all passengers and there is a cost to everything. Really $4 plus gratuity for two scoops of Gelato? Is that really necessary?

Additionally, it is clear that Celebrity has decided to take their que from the airlines and squeeze as many cabins as possible into the ships interior all at the determent of it’s paying passengers!.
