Ship does not live up to the hype

Celebrity Edge Cruise Review by krisskahuy

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Celebrity Suite

Boarding/Deboarding --

Though the boarding process is a breeze for suite guests, I cannot say the same for getting off the ship. We used Luggage Valet and were told we could exit the ship as soon as it cleared customs. However, rather than allow us to do so, we were ushered into the line of folks waiting to deboard with their luggage. So, an "easy walkoff" translated to a 45-minute wait. Celebrity should not advertise 'priority' de-boarding if it does not enforce the hype.

The Retreat --

Celebrity should consider limiting access to Celebrity Suites and above. With over 125+ Sky Suites, there were entirely too many people in this area. Plus, it should be for adults only. There were children splashing in the Retreat's pool and hot tub, and occasionally running on deck. I sail Celebrity to get away from kids ... not to have them underfoot. Plus, if I didn't get to The Retreat early on a sea day, there was no place to sit other than the sun deck. "Reserved" seating was noted by towels tossed on recliners or chairs and the coveted pergolas. Celebrity should either make The Retreat larger, limit the suite guests who have access to that area or have Retreat personnel remove towels from chairs/loungers if a person does not return within a reasonable period of time.

Ship Personnel --

Whether it was officers or wait staff, the crew always had a smile and a greeting for the passengers.

Dining --

I dined in two of the specialty restaurants (Fine Cut Steakhouse and Rooftop Garden & Grill), both of which had extensive menus. The appetizers and entrees were cooked to perfection.

Cabin Review

Celebrity Suite
Cabin CS 11111

I liked that the toilet and tub/shower are separate, so both facilities can be used independently. However, both sinks are HUGE, greatly limiting the counter space for toiletries and the like. Plus, the shower's half-door needs a magnet or something to hold it in place. The slightest nudge will cause the door to swing open, spraying water on the floor. The same can be said for the sliding door between the bedroom and living area. The slightest movement of the ship would cause the door to slide shut. Otherwise, there was more than adequate closet and drawer space.

Key West

Fun time as our guide included points of interest around Key West while walking between the pubs.
