Overall loved the ship!. Is it my favourite Celebrity ship?: Probably BUT they do need to deal with some of the fixable points below (most of which have already been mentioned by other people. We will be back (and soon!)
Celebrity Edge pros and cons
Good use of public space. Everything seems spacious. Ocean view not frantic and lots of table space even on notorious busy days like Embarkation and long port days return. Good use of every inch.
Guest relations, future cruise etc all very open plan. No desk between you and staff
Love all the hidden places that you only discover after a few days.
Love the Eden space. All the different levels
Staff very attentive and friendly.
Food standards seem higher than other celebrity ships in all areas. Love the panini etc at Eden for lunch.
Like the split 4 main dining rooms. Never seems to look really mobbed. Always got a seat at times we wanted. Hosts very helpful.
Cafe del bacio much bigger area now and is good place to chill at any time.
Lots of sun lounger space and seems to have lots of shaded areas (apart from maybe the top deck).
Fabulous massive pool. Never is full because of the space.
Magic carpet quite nice for few drinks but (see later for cons). Good viewing area if in port.
All the stair areas, lobbies etc much more space.
More lifts than normal and bigger.
Love the running ,walking track. So much more interesting than normal circuit idea as goes all over ship and over more than one deck.
Love the theatre. Great shape and the IT is well used as part of the show.
Shows were very professional.
Jacuzzis much bigger and better placed.
Eden restaurant very interesting experience. Fabulous food
Magic carpet looks hideous. Seems pretty useless unless in warmer and calmer ports as the windproofing is non existent. First three days of our cruise wasn’t really used at all.
Cabanas which are supposed to give seclusion and views out to sea useless as everyone walks right past them all day AND magic carpet is 95% of the day right across from them so view obstructed! I never once saw them used in 10 days.
Found the garden area nice but mostly unusable again due to lack of wind or shade protection. Unless in port and in very warm climates not really used apart from for films during the day.
Don’t like the total ‘class’ split now. Suites guests are now totally cut off from normal passengers during the day and for meals. Miss the panoramic lounge viewing at the front which is now suite guests only.
Even though Celebrity are obviously wanting to attract younger clientele, they (like most other lines) insist on the same music Mix of 50s and 60s. Ie beetles, Elvis etc. Some more modern please although ive now heard that the music was changed to older stuff because of complaints !
Rooms very nice décor and seem bigger with the IV. Actually really like infinity verandah after doubts before and even first couple of days. Bathroom much bigger and shower really good. Good sockets ( UK,EU and US and 4 x USB).
Shower knobs in rooms not very user friendly as stiff to turn and not intuitive.
Floor does flood occasionally because of the drainage vents not being great.
Safe far too small.
Love Lisbon. Lots to see
Third time here (and last time getting off!). Once youve seen the rock and the monkeys not much else to do.
Fantastic city. So many lovely sights in the old town. Felt totally safe compared to barcelona etc.
