We wanted to try the Celebrity Edge. This was our fourth Celebrity cruise. There are many aspects of the ship we truly enjoyed; however, they were other parts of the cruise we felt were not up to prior Celebrity standard.
Cabin: The cabin was beautiful and well appointed. We had a balcony cabin and we enjoyed the enclosed style balcony on the Edge. I am sure it will not be to everyone’s liking but we enjoyed the great views in ac comfort. The bathroom was the nicest and the largest we have ever had on a balcony cabin or any cruise line.
Dining: This was the biggest disappointment for us. The four main dining venues are nice but we quickly decided we prefer to have the large elegant multi level dining venues found on most large cruise ships. This service was, as we always experience, great. Unfortunately, neither my spouse nor I felt the same about the food in the main dining room. Simply stated, the quality and variety of the food in the MDR was not what we have come to expect from Celebrity. Fully agree with others who have made similar comments. The small and limited selection the spa snack area is essentially worthless. With our premium drink package, we looked forward to smoothies at the spa but found they were not very good. Further, the small food area closes at 2 o’clock and that’s it for the day. There is no other place on the ship to get a smoothie or any kind of special fruit or vegetable drink. The food in the buffet, though always very crowded at breakfast and lunch, was excellent and this is one area where Celebrity still stands out. We did not try any of the up charge dining venues. For my wife and I, the main dining room experience is a big part of the reason we enjoy cruising and a big part of the reason we are giving a three out of five star review.
Beautiful cabin. We loved the infinity veranda. Air-conditioning and all other features worked fine. Bathroom is very large and very nice. Plenty of closet space and storage area. Reasonably good selection on the TV. All in all, one of the best features on the ship.
Very easy to walk to any and all attractions in Key West. Suggest seek out sign for Mile 0 on US Route 1. We thought was a cool photo
Super easy embarkation.
The small National Museum is very close to the pier and can be completed in under one hour. It is a well thought out small museum and worth visiting.
National Museum is very close to dock. You can walk through in about an hour. It is well thought out and worth visiting.
