Infinite balcony- we loved it

Celebrity Edge is a great ship and it put our faith back into cruising after a disastrous cruise on Cunard's QM2 last year which was so old fashioned, dirty and the food disgusting that we pledged never to go on a cruise again, however, we saw The Edge and decided to give it a go and it was one of the best decisions we made.

It has everything you want on a cruise: fabulous food; friendly and excellent service; sparklingly clean and hygienic; impressive and packed itinerary. If you're a first time cruiser you'll love it but probably be disappointed in other ships afterwards!

Things to think about: we considered upgrading to concierge class but that would have doubled the gratuities. Why go on a huge ship and pay extra to keep separated in a small exclusive area at the front, if you don't like the 'Hoi Polloi' go on a smaller more exclusive ship. Forget the organised shore excursion , you could have got off the ship in at least 6 of the ports we stopped at and easily explored on your own. Get a Premium drinks package for a hassle free cruise experience, who wants to spend the cruise adding up the cost of drinks - prices are high AND theres always the 18% or 20% service charge

Cabin Review

Edge Veranda Stateroom

Cabin E2

fantastic room, very quiet, no vibration, spacious.

PLEASE NOTE: The cabins have 2 layouts, this one has the bed nearer to the bathroom and main door the other layout has the bed right next to the balcony which some people didn't like as reduced the effect of have an infinite balcony so check the room layout if it'll bother you.
