I didn’t expect to like the Edge. My husband and I have been on 26 cruises, several with Celebrity. The reviews for this ship were very mixed, and I was quite skeptical. It turns out that I was pleasantly surprised.
Before you go, make sure to download the Celebrity app. You can get a lot of information there, everything from deck plans to menus to daily activities. You can even make dinner reservations. Make sure to do your check-in with the app, as this will make your boarding seamless. You’ll find that the wifi on the Edge is actually pretty good.
Embarkation was a breeze. We arrived at the terminal at about 10:30 and were quickly through security. Check in by an employee with an iPad made the process fast, and we were seated for about 15 minutes until boarding began at 11:00. By 11:30 we’d dropped our bags at our room, retrieved our key cards and were enjoying a cocktail at the Sunset Bar.
