Celebrity Edge – Personal Review Stateroom – Sky Suite room 11202 (as compared to Sky Suite on Solctice Ships) Like – -Open balcony with rail; -Bathroom mirror opens to view the ocean (NOTE: This mirror slides open at night in rough seas) Dislike – -couch very hard; -safe is 2/3 size of previous ship’s safes; -smaller refrigerator; -Balcony chairs comfortable but have short backs and no chase lounges making it impossible to put our head back and legs up for a snooze on the balcony (NOTE: we spoke to another couple who has a Sky Suite. They requested a lounge chair and the cabin attendant exchanged the chairs for lounges); -Bathroom has a tub and mostly senior passengers who have problems just sitting and standing up so why make them step over a tub to get in the shower; -No place to hang a towel near the shower – we had to put the towel on the floor outside the tub; -soap dish in shower is under the showerhead, immediately fills with water so no soap bar can be left in this dish; in any case they did not provide soap bars in the shower. -Didn’t like the Body Wash, Shampoo or Conditioner. They are now in 2 pint containers with a locked pump top – had to play with the pump ever day to get it to work – finally just unscrewed the pump top in order to use it – wasted a lot of shower water while we putzed around getting the pump to work – NOTE we liked the BVLGARI brand we had on previous cruises was a much better product. -garbage can in bathroom is under the sink/cabinet drawer – need to bend over nearly touching the floor to dispose of tissues (not good for seniors with a bad back); -We miss the daily hard copy newspaper; -No more flowers in the room (not sure how that helps the environment); Luminae Restaurant – attractive room. Comfortable and very nice when we have flat seas or resting in port. Similar menus to the other 4 restaurants and Blue. Fewer people on days of rough seas due to location on deck 12. Most meals Good to Very Good with the occasional Excellent Retreat Lounge – tucked away on 15 FWD comfortable but isolated. We needed to go to this lounge to get our free wine outside of 5-7pm. Between 5-7pm we could get wine at The Club on 4 AFT near most of the other restaurants. After 7PM it’s a long walk to the Retreat Lounge FWD to get another glass of wine. Good choice of wines on the bar and you help yourself. Mixed drinks need to be ordered from the wait staff. Constantly ran out of wine glasses and ditto with the wine. Only one bottle of wine left out at a time. Retreat Pool – 16 FWD on the bow. Very windy place while underway. Regular pool is more protected from the wind and more comfortable while underway. Lounge area very comfortable – never crowded. Lots of lounge chairs. 6 people fill the small pool. This is of little benefit in colder weather like this trans-Atlantic trip – We had about 3 warmer days where this pool area was a bit crowded but comfortable. Entire ship – -impressed with seating/lounge availability outside on decks around the ship – everywhere we went, there was plenty of seating available however there were fewer lounge chairs available at the main pool during the warmer days – people sill throwing a book and towel on the chair early and not showing up to use it until hours later. Staff were supposed to remove towels and books if chair not used for 30 min but this was never enforced. -Walking track – best I’ve seen on any ship – full 1 deck incline. 4.5 laps = 1 Mile. -Fitness Center – well equipped with loads of options however no empty machines late afternoons. -Tai Chi class every morning at 10:30 but weather prevented this class half the time. Class was excellent. Shops – Pricey stores – Celebrity must assume all passengers have an AMEX Platinum. All stores constantly empty when we passed by. I can’t imagine these will last long. Average age of ship’s passengers is north of 65, probably more like 70+ and most have already gotten all the jewelry and watches they want and are in the process of passing it down to their kids, not buying more. Magic Carpet – a marketing gimmick but nice addition to the ship. Its moved to deck 5 at night where more partygoers can have a drink. It’s still too cold for us at night but it should be a hit in warmer weather and calmer seas. Ship serves dinner only once per cruise + dinner is a$65 PP option + 18% tip + drinks = $150 night per couple. 2nd night optional on longer cruises. We had a reservation for the 2nd night in Lisbon but was cancelled due to rain and cooler temps. Lunches: Ocean View – breakfast and lunch – very good, plenty of seating. One concern – at lunch there were often no crew member offering the hand sanitizer, ditto some mornings - saw many people entering the restaurant without using the sanitizer dispensers. There was a large wash basin at the entrance to accommodate 10 people washing their hands. It was seldom used. Eden Café – A well kept secret on the ship. Great salads and paninis + best chocolate chip cookies on the ship. Dining: We liked the idea of 4 individual restaurants vs one large dining room; Better/more food selections; Free Dining Options: Cosmopolitan, Tuscan, Cyprus, Normandie and Blue. All good options but Normandie was our favorite. We like the four restaurant option vs the larger single dining room on their other ships. Although we usually had reservations, all restaurants seem to be able to handle all walk-ins every night. LeGrand Bistro (optional $55PP) Excellent - We enjoyed Le Petit Chef – a Must See for all passengers. The best $55 we’ve spent on a meal in years. Check it out on YouTube. Entertainment: -We’d rate most of the entertainment from 5-7 on a scale of 1-10. Mostly singers, celloists with the Celebrity singers and dancers doing some good shows. -They had an Excellent acrobatic show in The Club. This room is small, but the show ran many nights, so we finally got in with a good seat after a few visits. -Comedian Fred Klett and The Magician ZeeZeus – Bot excellent- Rated 10+ -Beyond the Podium speakers were at times scheduled too close together, not leaving a break for lunch; -Speakers appearing in The Club had not enough room – much too small for some of the audiences; -Movies were shown on the outside screen in the Garden area – most days it was too windy and much too cold to sit – even on days when we were in port and all theaters and clubs were empty, the movie was still outside – Very poor planning. Observations: Major issue: When we had rough seas our room had very loud creaking that sounded like whales crying. We reported this to Guest Relations who immediately sent up the Assistant Chief Housekeeper. By that time the seas settled down and the creaking has ceased. The Next night we again had some rough seas and I awoke at 5AM. I decided to get dressed and leave the room to see if the loud creaking was just our room. As I walked into the hall I could hear the creaking up and down the hall. I walked to the 12th deck and the creaking as 50% louder on that deck. The following night a senior officer was on deck 5 and, as I walked by, he asked how I was enjoying the cruise. I told him about the loud creaking, and he pondered his response for a moment. He then told me they are aware of the issue and a crew of engineers will be boarding the ship in Southampton to diagnose the problem. I appreciated his honesty. We’re booked on the Edge in 2020 from Barcelona to FL and ‘ll be checking to ensure this issue is resolved before finalizing that cruise. During the dinners, we spoke to passengers from all floors – they had the same experience. Although we’re booked on the APEX in Oct 2020, we need to watch this problem. It will be deal breaker if the problem is not resolved. Balcony rooms – Everywhere we go we meet people who have balcony rooms with the infinity window. Most people we spoke to dislike/hate them. Many said they will never sale on the Edge again with these windows. Others want a balcony room with the old style balcony rails. I suspect unless Celebrity changes this issue on future Edge type ships, they will be sailing with primarily suite passengers. Library – This is no more on the Edge. They now offer a single shelf with a dozen books and some magazines – many people complained about this. Rooms – For Edge type ships, we like the starboard side rooms. Reason is Celebrity always puts the Magic Carpet dockside to show off the ship. Read Less

We traveled with a group from RFamily vacations. We chose this trip because of our great experience on Celebrity Solstice to Alaska, and wanted to see the newest design in ships. We really enjoyed the ship. The veranda idea worked great for us. We enjoy A/C, so I think we opened the window 3 times the whole week. WIthout the shear and blackout curtains, it felt open, airy and big. The pleated shade was perfect for privacy and blocking light, and the power controls on the thermostat and balcony were convenient. Yes, the martini bar isn't what it is on the Solstice class, but we found Eden a great replacement. We give Celebrity credit for doing something new with the ship instead of just serving up the same. We ate at all the specialty restaurants and enjoyed them all, even the Rooftop Grill. Yes, it's a bit expensive, but we had a great meal and the outdoor dining room worked well for us (weather was great and wind speed under sail wasn't bad at all). Two things I'd express to Celebrity: I would make the Martini bar more oval in shape to serve more people surrounding it....and make the seating all one height, instead of the multilevel that's on the Edge. Second: The Cabana's.....we had a half cabana on a sea day. I tried, but the whole cabana's were all booked before the ship sailed. WARNING: the half cabana isn't worth it. We were a party of TWO and felt very confined....there isn't enough room for two adults to lounge. Then, the party on the other half of the cabana arrived....oh, boy. What I wouldn't have paid to get the whole cabana. Our neighbors were a mom and dad, young daughter and an INFANT in a stroller....ugh. Nothing like listening to parents and TWO sets of grandparents crammed into a small space, correcting and comforting children. Hey, I get it, people have children, and yes, it was Easter week, but If I was Celebrity, I'd put an age and party size limit on the half cabana's. We did have a great view of the young daughter practicing here dance class stretches on the ships wood balcony railing......and we did get a front row seat for the grandparents performance.....ugh.

So we did b2b, this was cruise number 11 on X. We are in late 30- and like celebrity. We like good food, shows and service. We prefer that it is activity’s but not to much and that there is not to many children. When we go on holiday, we like it to be a calm and relaxed atmosphere. We go early to bed, so late night party is not our thing. We have tried different cruise lines but the preferred is X. So we stayed in a deluxe ocean view balcony, 6115. Nice stateroom but horrible location since you have lots of noise from the theatre during rehearsal and shows. If you read the review from the first week 14.april, you understand. But anyway back to the positive! So the process of b2b went smooth as silk. New cards was by the door in the morning and we went of by ourselves in the morning and when we returned in the afternoon, we just walked right onboard again. No problems, no worries. So this week we changed captain and we new the ship we’ll. Since we did only do MDR in week one, we had pre booked a 4-night dining package. So we did: Fine Cut Excellent meal, great service from the somalier. Perfect steak and great garnish. Le petit chef So fun! It was lots of fun and tasted very well. The pasta was so good. If you bring children, this is definitely something fun to do for dinner. Not sure I would do it on every cruise. Eden Lots of food, almost to much. Something tasted better then others on the menu. Fun to have the edenist walking and interactive in the dining area. Raw on 5 Great if you like seafood and raw fish. We had a great meal, really something we like. We have eaten on sushi on 5 on other ships and this is always a winner for us. Same thing on the Edge. It was really nice to meet and see several of the crew from other ships we have been on before. Great staff, we can really not comment enough of how good work they do. Entertainment this week was presented by 2 productions show and guest entertainment. Marcus Terrell was again great (he did a different show on week one). He is a multi talent, he was definitely the best show of the week. The production shows was nice, really like the screen and scene set up on Edge. Ports of call was good, we have been in all before. But we can always find something new to do. Officers and captain was very visible around the ship. Cc host Elisabeth did a good job on both weeks. She was always smiling and welcoming us when we arrived on things she was arranging. So what did we feel when we walked of the ship after 14days??? WHY did we not book the transatlantic cruise????? We really regret that we didn’t book it. Because if you take away the noise issue in our stateroom. We had great time, but the noise was and is a huge problem for us. Read Less

I have now been on 6 cruises. 2 with Norweigen, 2 with Carnival, and now 2 with Celebrity. First one on the Summit this time last year. A little background, I am 47 and my wife is 34 and this Edge cruise was perfect! We cruise to relax, drink, eat and visit the new places. We had already been to San Juan but had not visited Tortola or Sent Maarten. All 3 were fun in their own ways. About the ship; This ship is innovative, up to date with technology(the use of LEDs is perfect), and beautiful. The layout design versus other ships I have been on was better. I read a lot of reviews before we left and TBH I don't get the negative reviews. The only negative for us was the expensive shops on level 4. This space could be used for other things as no one was ever in these shops. But back to the negative reviews, I think people just expect the same thing and when it changes it is automatically a negative. I came in with an open mind and I like the changes. THEY ARE FOR THE BETTER! The dining room layout with four main dining room options was awesome, it just gives you more options and the feeling of dining in a new restaurant every night without having to buck up the high costs of the premium dining. We did eat in Raw on 5 and had lunch in the grand bistro and I recommend both. The food you get for a 20 dollar charge at the grand bistro for lunch is a great deal, Raw on 5 not so much a deal but great food. I do like my seafood(lobster and crab) warm and it was served cold so I wouldn't probably pay up for it again. The buffet was great, lots of selection and everything I tried was really good. The Pizza was spectacular The entertainment was all good except for the last night. The show Kaleidoscope was not for me but the most part of the crown seemed to enjoy it. We actually went to all the shows, we usually don't but the people we cruised with wanted to see the shows so we went and I'm glad we did. The comedian was freaking hilarious! There was a few activities but Celebrity doesn't have as many activities as other cruise lines and I don't mind. We never were bored. The service was great as usual. I would say the staff seemed happier and friendlier on the Summit but really no complaints. Overall I would definitely be sailing on the Edge again, Maybe next year in Europe. Read Less

The Fine Cut steak house was a very big disappointment due to the fact of its location. It is located by the Grand Plaza on Deck 3. As the show was on downstairs we couldn’t talk to each other. I ordered a strip steak and had to return it twice. They should know how to cook a steak!...... It was NOT worth the $55.00 that I paid. The desert was good.... I could have had the ice cream on deck 14 for free. Being an aqua class traveler I was surprised that my cabin was so far away from the spa and gym. The solarium is beautiful, however it is not air conditioned as like the solstice class. The 4 dining rooms are an unique idea, however the standard menu in each could change also. The potions are small and just satisfactory. Don’t think i’ll be traveling on this class of ship again. Read Less

After reading so many negatives about sailing on the Edge, prior to our cruise, when I returned I felt it was necessary to tell some of the positives of this beautiful new ship. The embarkation was an absolute breeze. You do have a little hike after dropping off your luggage if you are parking a car in the parking garage. That said, the process of getting onboard was the fastest we have ever experienced. No waiting in long lines. Our seapass cards were in the door of our room and they actually told us we could go drop our things in our cabin before having lunch. None of the locked doors stating the cabins would not open until after 1pm!!! Such a nice treat. Upon entering, all of our excursion tickets, special dining reservations, etc were neatly placed on the bed. Of course, we had to try out the motorized shade and balcony window. Yes, the balcony is not as large as a standard but certainly adequate for the very comfortable chairs provided. The café where the buffet is located is pleasant and very spacious. The one thing I didn't understand is why the handwashing station was not mandatory. Only saw a few using it. When we have cruised on RCCL, the handwashing station was roped off and it was mandatory each person entering the dining area wash their hands. They did have someone at the door offering hand sanitizer but I think the handwashing is more effective. As for ease of moving around the buffet stations, it was effortless. Large areas and tons of food selections. Hamburgers were only available outside the Solarium pool area. Loved the martini bar. Pricey for anyone not purchasing a beverage package. Again, the comfortable chairs in this area made it very popular place to hang before dinner. Live musicians and vocalists performed. The highlight is the bartenders and their act. At 8:30 each night, they do a juggling act with liquor bottles and a super demonstration using stainless, filled shakers. Loved the energy of all of the bartenders. Very friendly staff The shows, for most part, were enjoyable. High energy dancers and singers. Hated the show , "Hot Mid-summer Night Dream" or some crazy title. It was so weird and we just wanted it to be over. They really need to re-think that show. The other production shows were very good. 1st comedian wasn't very funny but the 2nd was hilarious. Big shift in the dress-up nights. Everyone is going to less formal attire. Men are even electing to leave the jackets at home. Yeah for that one. I didn't see very many people in dressy stuff. Cruise director was engaging. We really enjoyed our excursion in St. Maarten. Took the one with the ship that was Foods of St. Maarten. It was excellent and we enjoyed sampling three different native meals. Our guide was great. You travel on an air conditioned bus and she really provides a tour of the entire island. Well worth the price. Our favorite place to spend our sea days was the Solarium pool area. The lounge chairs were so comfortable, with thick cushions. Also, loved that checking out towels was not required. No standing in line and having to show your sea pass card. Finally!!! We did the express self debarkation. That was well tuned and we were off the ship by 7:30. Nothing to going through customs. Done with face recognition. Didn't have to even show our passports since it is all electronically entered before boarding the ship. Overall, great improvements. Our feeling is there are a few things that could be improved but Edge is a beautiful ship. The food was very good with lots of selections. Would definitely love to experience The Edge with a Europe itinerary. Read Less

What an awesome cruise on board the Celebrity Edge! We really loved this ship, the food, the staff etc. If you're not sure-book it now, it's worth every penny and even more! You'll be wowed every day on this ship with something new. The Edge has vaulted to the top of our list just behind the MCS Seaside. Love my infinite balcony with bed near balcony! As a usual some Tips from us: You don't need to be have an internet package to connect to the ships wifi system to send messages to other people that you are cruising with (using the Celebrity app). You can also set up Smart phone to be used as your key. You can also control the lights, temperature, blinds and TV from your cell phone! They do reserve a good amount of seats for suite guests, but they release any unused seats about 10 min before the show and we are always seat in front row :-) Around 8:30 every night, the bar tenders will do a flair show along with the light show. I chose "Anytime" dining, to make it easier to try each of the restaurants. In my cruise planner, I was able to click the "Add to Cart" button under the complimentary restaurant that I wanted. There is a different button for each restaurant. I booked 2 specialty and each of the 4 complimentary restaurants that way. Magic Carpet (open for drinks almost constantly although the app does not reflect that). Elevator signage listing the restaurants and clubs for each floor was very helpful. If it is green around the elevator, it is going up - red, it is going down. If you want the cabin at a certain temperature when you return, you may want to turn off the go green (under settings) as it will turn the thermostat up 2 degrees when you leave. Go To Eden!!! It was crazy amazing intriguing... Pizza is in the back of the cafeteria. Don't miss it, it's good! Eden Cafe for free lunch. They open at noon and they had excellent yummy hot and cold sandwiches and salads Try Le Grand Bistro For at least one lunch, enjoy the daily specials, it's one of the best values onboard ($20) Le Petit Chef offers an animated story of four miniature chefs having a cooking competition preparing your meal and it is projected on your table top. It was very entertaining and fun. The Edge is definitely spectacular! Read Less

My husband and adult daughter cruised on the April 21st sailing. The new terminal in Ft. Lauderdale is beautiful and getting on board was a breeze. The ship is unique, not my style but beautiful. Some positives: Really like the infinite balcony, I was so apprehensive after reading reviews. It made the room feel so much bigger with three of us. We opened the top of the window often, not sure you could do this if it was very hot as the air conditioning in the room turns off. Room is a good size and bathroom is very large. Food in the four restaurants was very good we thought. Rooftop garden is beautiful and Sunset bar is very nice. Didn't have an issue getting a chair at the pool or right above on second deck even on sea days. They have a bartender with a portable cart that roams the decks which is very convenient. Casino is non smoking which is fabulous! Pizza is good. Negatives: Eden is very odd and takes up a lot of space. You walk through a dark room with gold tree trunks (??) to enter. The music is supposed to be calming but it irritated me. The breakfast options were very limited unless you paid an up charge. Shops were ridiculous, Tiffany, Bulgari...I never saw anyone in these shops. Deal or no deal is a ripoff - $ 25.00 each and they only play 2 games; usually done in 20 minutes. Very little to do if you had a bad weather day, which we did not, luckily. The entertainment, other than the comedians, was painful. Very disjointed and the Jersey Boy show had a lead with a very high voice that did not resemble Frankie Valli. Too many passes sold for the thermal suite. Could not get a chair and people were LOUD!! Buffet food, other than breakfast, was not very good. No ice carvings or fruit carvings, same sandwiches every day. Hand sanitation was not enforced. Really need to have someone stand with the sanitizer, we saw many, many people who did not wash hands or use sanitizer. We still had a good time, especially as we had beautiful weather. I really prefer Silhouette to the Edge, Princess and RCCL have much nicer buffets. We did not leave ship in Puerto Rico or St. Maarten. Took shore excursion to Jost Van Dyke which was beautiful, fun and worth the money! Read Less

We just completed a seven day cruise on the Celebrity Edge and the ship was amazing! The staff provided a high level of professionalism while making every moment a personal experience. After reading negative comments we weren’t sure what our personal outtake would be, however from beginning to end this was a perfect vacation! There were eight of us traveling from all parts of the US. Some were first time cruisers with Celebrity, as well as Elite Status return cruisers and everyone agreed that the service was the highest level they had ever experienced. The infinite verandas provided a larger area for enjoyment as well as the open air each day and night. We ate in the four dining rooms available throughout the cruise where the food and service were excellent. Dennis, the maître d’ in Cyprus, even brought identical twins to meet my identical twin sisters which was a joyous moment for ALL! The personal touch was everywhere! Eden is a different experience from other cruise ships however being present during the production provided a level of intrigue which is not always present when watching a video. This show should be experienced by all at least once. The children were welcome and intrigued by the program and allowed to participate which brought smiles. We previously read about concerns regarding the removal of three bars and the addition of one main bar. Though the main bar does not have a lot of seating, there were areas surrounding the bar which made up for the additional seating and provided ample room for all who joined the evening musical activities. From embarkation to debarkation this was an amazing cruise! Special thanks to Desy who greeted us with a beautiful smile wherever she found each of us DAILY! She was Our Angel! Read Less

I took this cruise because I bought the hype and video while on another Celebrity cruise. This was going to be a whole new way to cruise. A new angle on the cruising experience. The Magic Carpet, Infinite Verand, computer design, state of the art. Wow. What I found is that the ship is an Ikea budget design with delusions of grandeur. Upscale pricey shops, ridiculously overpriced dining venues, And even more (but more that is not good).... Here are my thoughts while they are still fresh in my mind. I got off the Edge this morning. In over 35 cruises and many happy ones with Celebrity, this was easily the worst cruise of my life. To put this into perspective, I have never written a negative review in 20 years of cruising. So what is so terrible about the Edge? 1. There is no access to the front of the ship for passengers under Suite class. Want to see where you are going? Anticipate that next port? Dream a little? Suite class right this way, here's your private pool, hot tub and bar, careful getting on the deck lounger. You are not Suite class? Oh, be glad that we allow second class passengers to look out the side or stern. Who do you think you are? 2. The ship looks like it was designed from stem to stern by Ikea. Plain to the point of starkness. A passenger I spoke to described it as Motel 6 at sea. That's not fair. I like Motel 6. 3. Elite passengers get free drinks from 5 to 7. That is unless you pay $100 extra for a Private dining experience, then your drinks are 18 dollars each at the table, or you can bus your own table from a bar on another floor. So you are telling me I get free food, drinks, and waiters in the buffet but if I pay $100 extra for a couples dinner I have to bus my own drinks to the table? Yes, you got it. 4. Buffet food is good. Rest of dining experiences are slow service and mediocre food. Do not think you will eat and go to the show. You will not have time for dessert unless you miss the show. 5. Speaking of shows, if you enjoy second rate lounge singers and tribute bands this is the cruise for you. The one show that took advantage of the wonderful holographic experience available in the state of the art theater was acted like an 8th-grade drama club production. It was horrid. Ditto for the Eden big show. 6. Furniture across the ship was designed with 3D glasses and no concern for ergonomics. There is barely a place anyone can find to sit comfortably. 7. Big Screen movies are behind lamp posts from the seats so you have to peer around the poles to watch them. Curiously most of the seats face away from the screen anyway. Smokestacks are too close to the deck of the ship so you will often find yourself breathing diesel fumes while you try to watch the film. 8. There are signs on the ship with white letters on a white background. Can you read white on white? I can't. 9. We were on 3rd floor, behind the Secret Door. What ship has a secret door for staterooms? It's a secret door that is manual. If you are older or in a wheelchair you will not be able to open it due to the doors spring pressure, even after you find it. 10. The ship apparently was designed by committee. Areas are chopped together with no sense of flow or logic. I was recently on Symphony of the Seas. In a couple days I had most of the venues down. After a week on Edge I was still clueless. So there are ten reasons why Edge is NOT a GOOD VALUE. I could give more but you get the idea. EDGE is a four letter word in my book. Avoid it if you can. If you are booked already, eat in the buffet, and hideout in the solarium. Read Less
