Celebrity Edge Cruise Review by Wales1

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: Transatlantic

We took the transatlantic re-positioning April 2019 in a deck 11 inside cabin to get plenty of time to see and experience the ship.

For us, Celebrity always had very good food, genuinely friendly and professional staff and great entertainment; whilst always sailing in really clean and well maintained ships.

The Edge has definitely not disappointed. I have to take my hat off to Celebrity; they have thought so carefully and taken to a wonderful new dimension, so so many aspects of ship design; that this review won't have the space to cover them all !

Some of our favourite were an excellent cabin [We had an inside] with a great spacious shower room ( the best shower experience ever on a ship in 30 years - really ) super LCD TV, plenty of varied deck space with never a problem finding a lounger, even on the best deck days.

There is a great sense of space on this ship and the best dedicated(and interesting) walking and running track we have seen anywhere afloat so far.

The food was consistently very good to excellent with really great varied restaurants included and speciality dining options,the later are definitely worth booking in advance as a package. [ We took a package of four and went to Eden twice] We particularly enjoyed Eden, Le Petit Chef experience[a marvelous one off] and Fine Cut steakhouse.

The new Atrium and and Coffee/drinks space is really super with amazing staff coupled with great singers for a really nice pre or post dinner experience.

The new show theatre and visual staging shows and entertainers were amazing with genuine standing ovations nearly every night.

The ship is really easy to get on and off with multiple lifts to the purpose built spacious disembarking area. It took us only 12-15 minutes to get on-board at Fort Lauderdale and the new check in process appeared to work well.

Celebrity and it's design teams have undoubtedly, we think, done a marvelous job and it's all delivered by what continues to be, in our view, the genuinely friendliest staff at sea who, with the great new ship, made for a really enjoyable cruise.

Cabin Review


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Took at four night pre-stay and enjoyed the beaches & water taxi ride along waterways- Full day pass ticket out from 10am to 9pm!

King's Wharf

Beautiful Island we took public bus to Hamilton. It was not expensive & returned by water ferry to the ship. Give plenty of time though the bus took an hour on narrow roads.

Ponta Delgada

Been before, really enjoyed the public gardens and flowers and walk at the Botanical garden.

Lisbon

Bought a six euro all day pass for the old electric trams and rode the lines end to end coupled with great walks and plenty of coffee & cake. A great day.

Bilbao

Really worth going into the City. We took the 10 euro(return) City shuttle bus from the Port which is about 30 mins from the city. Recommend the Guggenheim Museum then a walk along the riverbank to old town;[ narrow pretty streets] then catch the cheap electric tram back from the Old town tram stop(Ribberia) near the Market.[ Old Town] back to the Guggenheim and it was a short walk to the shuttle bus to the ship.

Honfleur

Great day in Hornfleur walking, eating and the gardens.
