Celebrity Cruises has revealed details of the 2,918-guest Celebrity Edge, which has been dubbed a "innovative and transformational" ship that will feature expanded staterooms, new suite categories and the ship-climbing Magic Carpet platform.
Due to set sail on December 16, 2018, Celebrity Edge will homeport in Florida’s Fort Lauderdale and will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
Magic Carpet platform
Designed completely in 3D, the Celebrity Edge will sport the Magic Carpet platform cantilevered from the side of the 16-deck ship. The size of a tennis court, the platform will transform into a different venue depending on the deck – a restaurant for 90 guests on Deck 16, an open-air expansion of the main pool area on Deck 14, an al fresco extension one of the ship’s restaurants on Deck 5 and a luxury embarkation station at Deck 2.
Other features onboard the Celebrity Edge include the Rooftop Garden, which functions as a games area, live music space or a outdoor movie theatre.
The new Edge Stateroom with Infinity Veranda expands cabins right to the ship's edge, and boasts 23 per cent more square footage and bathrooms 10 per cent larger than Celebrity’s Solstice Class. Within the room, guests can control and personalise everything from lighting, shades, temperature and service.
Celebrity Edge will also boast two new suite categories. At the top of the line are two new 242m2 Iconic Suites situated above the ship’s bridge. These suites will have a dining room, living room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a 65m2 veranda offering 270-degree view of the ocean. The other new Suite Class comprises six split-level Edge Villas that offer private plunge pools and direct access to The Retreat Sundeck.
New suite categories onboard the Celebrity Edge
All suites and double occupancy Edge Staterooms will come with king-size cashmere mattresses, access to a new space called The Retreat, which will feature a private pool, lounge, restaurant, and around-the-clock personal butler service.
Bookings are now open at www.celebritycruises.com/edge or through travel agents for Celebrity Edge’s two seven-night itineraries.
