The Celebrity Edge, is a ship designed for a cruising experience unlike any before. How was ship named? It was simple, as the designers of the ship envisioned each part, they saw the design features were on the leading edge of possibility with each element they crafted. And so “Edge” became the name. This also starts a new class of ships, “Edge Class”, with new ships already in the designing phase.
If you’re like many cruisers that aren’t fans of having to wait on a cramped deck to board your tender to shore when your cruise ship is stopping in port, then you’ll love the Magic Carpet, a cantilevered platform that moves up and down the exterior of the ship depending on the need of the moment. It will never move while guests are on it for safety reasons, but its function changes depending on what deck it is positioned. When on Deck 2, The Magic Carpet is a relaxing waiting area for passengers to sit and chat until their tender boat comes to pick them up. The Edge tenders, known as Edge Launches are enclosed air-conditioned boats with large windows and bucket seats to travel to the port in style.
When The Magic Carpet is on Deck 16, it serves as a specialty restaurant in the evenings named Dinner on the Edge. Thanks to its position on the outside of the ship, you’ll literally be dining over the open water. The views from your table will be outstanding.
As The Magic Carpet moves to other decks throughout the day, it becomes an extension of the pool area on Deck 14 at times with lounge space, an active bar and live music. Then later becomes an al fresco extension of different specialty restaurant on Deck 5 aptly named Edge's Raw on Five seafood eatery.
No matter what deck you step onto the Magic Carpet from, one thing’s for certain: you won’t want to miss the chance to see the world from its vantage point.
One of the best parts about a cruise vacation is being able to view the scenery as you sail along the open ocean and seas passing gorgeous coastal towns and stopping at the scheduled ports of call as the beautiful landscapes come into view. Now, Celebrity Cruises, with the debut of Celebrity Edge, brings the outside in for your cruise more than ever before with The Edge Stateroom with Infinite Veranda. This newly designed stateroom features remotely controlled doors that open completely to let you bring the sea air right into your stateroom, so you can easily step up to the railing and see the sights that each day brings you.
What does this mean for your experience? A cruise ship that puts a focus on contemporary design with artistic flair and without sacrificing comfort. You’ll find bright, airy settings along with the modern luxury details discerning travelers from around the world have come to expect from Celebrity Cruises.
Celebrity Edge’s first sailing departed December 16, 2018, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which will also serve as Celebrity Edge’s homeport. Celebrity Edge will offer two different itineraries from Fort Lauderdale.
