My husband really wanted to check out this ship. So far we have not been impressed. Gym has no locker room, sauna or steam room. You need to pay $498 per couple to access them. People raved about la Petite dinner. It is a cartoon projected onto your plate not an actual chef as described. Food was ok. Had better meal in Luminae. We have a Butler that is doing the work of two butlers service is good. When you have cruised with someone 5 times in 4 years you would expect some show of appreciation, a bottle of wine? No in room snacks as promised. Our last cruises have been a far better experience. I would expect that a new ship would have their best staff aboard. Casino bartender could not mix their signature drinks so had to wait for other bartenders to make them. Tried 4 of the dining rooms. La Petit chef was described as a virtual chef. It is an animated chef, basically a cartoon. Food was good but not exceptional. Went to magic carpet, described as dining room that moved up and down the outside of the ship. It is stationary. Food was odd, a strange mix of dishes. Fixed menu that is served family style. Food was good but again a strange mix. Service was great. Fine cut steak house was wonderful. What you would expect from a high end steak house. Eden was amazing. The atmosphere was unique and food was presented beautifully and was like nothing I have ever had. We were seated away from the entertainment which was ok with us. I would definitely spend the money for this unique dining experience. Michael's lounge has been replaced with the Retreat lounge. Not the personal formal environment that Michael's is. It is like an airport lounge. Snacks are not available at all times and they will not provide them during the non scheduled times. Not even a bowl of snack mix or nuts. Kids in lounge laying on couches, feet on furniture and being disrespectful to employees maintaining the area. Just not a good experience. We will cruise with celebrity in the future but not on this level of ships.

Edge not as impressive as expected
