  3. Celebrity Edge
Back in the summer we saw the renderings for the Celebrity Edge and were excited by the opportunity to sail on a this new ship. We were not disappointed. We’ve sailed before on Celebrity (Reflection twice and Equinox once), Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Holland America. This was our very favorite cruise ship. I don’t understand the so far not so great reviews. My only explanation is that people don´t like change. Some aspects of the cruise ship were clearly superior and I would find a hard time anyone faulting them: Embarkation and disembarkation: beautiful terminal, incredibly fast, no other ship has been remotely close Interior Design and Art: A clear step above anything we have sailed on Main dining rooms: Food quality equivalent to Aqua Class in previous Celebrity. 4 dining rooms to chose from with different specialities, very good service Ocean View Cafe; Views, decor, high quality food Lounge Chairs in both sunny and shaded areas: much easier to get good seats than on other trips (30% more than on equivalent size ships). Large main pool Thermal spa area: Luxurious, spacious feel, infrared sauna, steam room, hamnan, salt room, better than Reflection. Grand Plaza with Martini Bar: Grand meeting point, lively Eden Restaurant- great food, worth it. Le Petit Chef- great, fun experience Beautiful Magic Carpet Bar Excellent wifi. Things we like but other may not: Modern, sophisticated decor, lots of grays Infinity veranda. Larger room. Great if you don’t spend a lot of time in the balcony. Martini-shaped whirlpools. Large, different floor, great if your lounge chair was not in main pool deck Large swimming pool Evening entertainment- We enjoyed it, beutiful theatre. Except for Whitney Houston-inspired show, most songs in other shows were new to me. Eden lounge- expensive but great drinks. Missing relative to Reflection, Celebrity: Quiet.bars, with few people, such as wine bar (Eden partial exception at certain times). Edge was designed for maximum use of space, multiple use of rooms. Small locker room for thermal spa

Fantastic cruise for those who enjoy new experiences

Back in the summer we saw the renderings for the Celebrity Edge and were excited by the opportunity to sail on a this new ship. We were not disappointed.

Interior Design and Art: A clear step above anything we have sailed on

Main dining rooms: Food quality equivalent to Aqua Class in previous Celebrity. 4 dining rooms to chose from with different specialities, very good service

Ocean View Cafe; Views, decor, high quality food

Lounge Chairs in both sunny and shaded areas: much easier to get good seats than on other trips (30% more than on equivalent size ships).

Cabin Review

Edge Stateroom with Infinite Veranda
Cabin E4 6265``
We loved the infinity veranda, but would not book this specific room again. While straight have view as unobstructed, some, limited obtruction if you looked left or right from balcony. I would recommend booking on higher floors.
