  3. Celebrity Edge
We have been on many Royal and Celebrity cruises. We hadn’t really planned it, but when our friend let us know they had found a decent price on the new Edge, we were intrigued. We registered and checked in on line, arrived at 11:00 and were at our room in five minutes where our keys were waiting for us, left the carryons, and put our stuff in the safe, and went for lunch. It was suggested to return around 1:00 and our bags were waiting at the door. We basically loved the fun variety of activities, especially in the evening. Nice varied age groups. Basically smart casual dress for dinner. Very few children. Shows were upbeat, dancers and singers work soo hard, the themes might not be for everyone, a little artsy, group doing Beatles songs had everyone singing, clapping and having a great time. One of the comedians was quite humorous, loved the sing and dance a longs of Queen and ABBA, and the great silent disco...fun to watch and participate. Food in the free dining rooms, 4 of them, was quite good. Had the odd hiccup, but the wait staff was helpful and eager to replace anything we wanted to try. Oceanview buffet had a decent variety, and everything was labeled according to the various diet issues, e.g glutton free, sugar free, dairy, etc. Spa cafe food was repetitive, tiny portions, nothing special. Extras like specialty coffees were priced starting at $5.00, bottled water, smoothies, wine, alcoholic drinks, etc. All had mandatory 20% gratuity...you can buy various levels of packages to enjoy unlimited extras which we purchased for non alcoholic drinks once on board. My husband wasn’t keen, so I just bought it for one of us..me.. The gym had all new equipment, was a strange shape, and there really isn’t any supervision or help around unless, here again, you purchase classes, training, etc. The outdoor walking track was perfect, and went over two levels. 4 1/2 laps =1 mile. Lots of seats, at the pool, some in the water, and little areas to read, or watch the sea, have a nap, several bars, fun to explore. Happy to see the Smoking area moved away from the pool deck doors and up some stairs. No library or games rooms, but people were playing cards and some games around the ship. Spa...We didn’t use it, but it looked busy. The cabin...mixed feelings. I did not care for the ‘infinite balcony’, as it is not a balcony. It is a solarium at best. No sitting outside. The top of the window opens, but there are times when that window can be locked by the bridge, ....rain, too windy, washing the windows, It adds three feet to the overall look of the room, but the word ‘balcony’ should not be ‘sold’ to the public. On the other hand the bathroom was super nice, larger than usual, nice drawer under the sink, shampoo, etc in containers, instead of those little one or two use bottles. Lots of hidden shelves inside cupboard doors in the bedroom, Little stool on the floor is hollow to use for ‘something’? the actual hanging part was kinda small. Move the desk into the dresser and you have a long mirror, and probably other little nooks that I didn’t find. Carribbean ports.. beautiful water and beaches, water sports, ..we’re not big shoppers and the shops seem to look the same in every port. There were at least 8 ships in port on arrival back to Ft. Lauderdale, so we got off early to avoid the deluge of all the people getting off the ships at the same time. Super smooth disembarkation. Happy to have been on the ‘Edge’

Enjoyed the cruise...mostly...
