  3. Celebrity Edge
Pros: Beautiful new ship. Beautiful theatre with great entertainment. Great food. Great staff. Wash stations with soap and water at Ocean Cafe. 4 “Main” Dining rooms, 3 with small fixed menus plus the daily changing main menu selection. Celebrity X app to view menus and activities etc. etc. works well. Prompt reimbursement of Celebrity excursion fares when unable to tender to Grand Cayman. Cons: See Cabin Comments. Dining....Food is great but seating is very disorganized particularly if you have Select Dining. One main dining room is unaware of the wait at the other main dining restaurants or if people with fixed seating have booked at specialty restaurants so their tables can be used. Tables by the windows or with a view often go empty while the tables at the back of the restaurant are filled. First night on-board Select Dining group waited up to 45 minutes for a table at Normandie and Tuscan main dining. Very chaotic and many upset passengers. Subsequent nights the wait was much less but still disorganized at these 2. So unlike the smooth seating for Select Dining on Eclipse. Cyprus dining room was much more organized in dinner seating and welcoming in approach as was Cosmopolitan. Entertainment was great. Unfortunately use of smoke in the Club makes it unpleasant as the dance music there can be quite good.

Cabin Review

Edge Stateroom with Infinite Veranda
Cabin E3
Cabin 6168. Infinite Veranda. Partially obstructed view as Life boat obstructs much of view from lower window. At night bright exterior lights, from the lifeboat outside, shine in the room making it impossible to sleep so blinds need to be closed making it like a dark dungeon. Therefore, one can never wake to a sunrise or see the moon etc. in this room.
Infinite Balcony is like being in a hot house. Not like a true balcony at all. More like a room with ocean view where you are able to open a window.
Our air conditioning worked poorly and cut out at times before reaching desired temperature. Max cooling did not keep the room cool . Technician came to cabin twice to try to resolve. With any sun shining through the windows it can get to 25 and not cool down for hours. Open the window and the air con shuts off and immediately the room is hot and humid like a sauna and all the mirrors etc. are covered with fog/moisture..
”Balcony” area is quite small. Folding doors to balcony are completely opaque so also obstruct view.
Bed is by the window away from air con vents so can be warm at night. Rooms alternate bed by window or door. Eg. Cabin 6166 has bed by door - much preferred by us.
Bathrooms are very nice. Cabins are nicely decorated but sofa only has one armrest. Although seemingly small at first, closet and other storage in cabins is very functional.
