Celebrity Edge, When It All Comes Together
A travel experience needs to be positive but also moving and exciting. Celebrity Cruise Line has broken the rules and actually surpassed my expectations on its new Edge. I have sailed on Celebrity five times and loved the ship size, design, service, and cuisine. Now with the
Edge, they are in new territory uncharted by any ocean line, mass market, premium, or even luxury. No one has the versatile infinite verandas, the three-story Eden, the innovative Magic Carpet, or the impressive immersive entertainment.
As with any big change, you are taking chances. If you are a cruise traditionist with visions of a walk around ship veranda, a mass main dining room, or shortened show presentations of “My Fair Lady,” this is not the ship for you. If you want smaller included main dining venues, a large garden casual dining area, an almost-theater in the round, and many open and non-commercial sitting areas, theEdge may be for you. The specialty restaurants are numerous and varied.
Aside from all the hype, a serious side came on Dec. 4 at the Edge naming ceremony. Malala Yousafzai, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and human activist, became the ship‘s godmother. It was a moving ceremony befitting Celebrity Cruises, which has promoted human rights and diversity for over 15 years.
For regular cruise passengers as well as those who feel the big lines are outdated, your ship has come in. Please contact us for the latest information on Celebrity as other ships that may fit your needs.
