We are a married couple in our 50's who cruise a lot, especially living in South Florida. We have been cruising in Europe for the past several summers with the last few being on Celebrity. Our first cruise with them was in 2010 and we love how the line has evolved. The Edge is definitely not your Father's cruise ship! It has a young, hip and sexy vibe. We had a wonderful cruise aboard the Edge. We thoroughly enjoyed our Infinite Veranda cabin and the entire ship. It was incredibly hot but we made the best of it. We had been in Amsterdam the week prior and spent a few nights in 100 degree weather in Rome; luckily we had planned on just relaxing at the beautiful pool at our hotel, the Rome Cavalieri, a great decision!
We ate at Fine Cut, Rooftop and the Magic Carpet specialty dinners. We cancelled our Eden dinner because we just could not face another big dinner lol. The rest of the dinners were spent in each of the 4 dining rooms as we had select dining. Being a couple made it very easy to get a table. We never waited. We thought that Tuscany had the best service and friendliest staff. Our favorite specialty item was the short rib appetizer in Cosmopolitan. The magic carpet dinner was lovely, we did the late seating at 8:45 when sailing away from Livorno. It is typically offered 2 times per week with 2 seatings each. You need to book it immediately when you get to the ship. Both nights had sold out. Fine cut was good with the only complaint being the shrimp cocktail; it wasn’t cold and firm like it should be. We didn’t eat much breakfast but did make the late buffet breakfast on 2 mornings. There was a nice variety. We really loved the pizza, a nice thin and crispy crust which has been absent on most cruise lines lately.
Our IV cabin was great. We never closed the glass doors and left the area open giving us the extra space. It’s a whirlwind of a week with little downtime to sit around but we did open the window when leaving port and taking a nap. We were too tired to notice if the AC was shut off or not when opened so I can’t comment on that. The weather was terribly hot so I like the fact that we had the extra space. If we had a “normal” balcony I don’t think we would have gone out on it much with the weather. When I did the British Isles cruise I never opened it once as it was just too cold. This is a great benefit. The cabin is decorated nicely and very modern. I loved the large bathroom but it did take away some closet space. There was not much floor space inside the closet so I left my shoes outside of it next to the couch. You can charge your phone on only one side of the bed and not the other. They should have included an outlet on both sides. The desk is shorter with a box containing electrical outlets taking up space. I did like the lighted vanity mirror.
