The itinerary was the first factor. Wanted to try out the new class of ship. It is a floating piece of art. Every detail is stunning. The new stage has all the bells and whistles. The food was tyical Celebrity presentarions. Good to very good. Movies in the garden, great touch. We enjoyed the new cabin redesign. Every thing was pristine. Very good areas for smokers.. The Edge sets the bar high for all other cruise ships. It is a big ship. However, there were many areas where one could feel intimate. Never large lines for anything.
On tour excursion days the easy on/off was done quite well. After eating at the 4 dinning rooms, we ended up picking one that we particularly liked The Comopolitan....The specialty steak restaurant was noting special. The ship is uniquely modern. Fluid and graceful. The staff A+. We are signed up for a 2020 Edge Cruise foucsing on Croatia.
