Cruising on the Edge; Celebrity Cruises new liner innovates beyond traditional cruising


Celebrity Edge to make maiden voyage in November 2018

Dubai, UAE, 28 January 2018 – Celebrity Cruises is known for its modern luxury cruising and continuous innovation that pushes the cruise industry forward with stunning ships. In November 2018, the company will introduce, Celebrity Edge, a revolutionary new ship which will change the concept of cruises and shatter all expectations.

This breakthrough in modern luxury travel will carry 2,900 guests and offer them extraordinary features, from the breath-taking views to the top-of-the-line cruise accommodations. Celebrity Edge will be the first of four vessels from the Edge Class, boasting the world-first Magic Carpet, Destination Gateway, Rooftop Garden and seamless cabins with open air access.

When it comes to versatility, The Magic Carpet offers the best views aboard as you soar over the open ocean. The highlight of this outward-facing vision, an incredible engineering feat is the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of 13 stories above sea level.





The Magic Carpet is designed with comfortable seating, a full bar, and space for live music performances, so it truly is a destination itself on Celebrity Edge℠. But depending on the positioning, its mood and function changes— The restaurant moves vertically between the decks of the ship, providing a new experience when stopping on each deck, and spectacular views on every surface of the ship.

At the very top of the ship, the Magic Carpet becomes an extraordinary venue high in the sky where we host mouth-watering experiences such as Dinner on the Edge. Down to Deck 14, the Magic Carpet becomes a stunning extension of the main pool area, while on Deck 5, it serves as an unforgettable, open-air dining experience. Then at the bottom on Deck 2, the Magic Carpet becomes an extension of modern luxury at The Destination Gateway.

The Resort Deck offers endless ways to enjoy the outdoors and connect with the sea. It includes everything from an asymmetrical outward-facing pool deck to a jogging track that winds up, down, and around the new Rooftop Garden – a living urban playscape inspired by childhood playgrounds, full of unexpected pleasures day and night. Drift away to the rhythm of live musical performances coming down to you from treetop sculptures. Get caught up in a friendly game of giant chess. Catch a movie at A Taste of Film for an interactive fusion of food and film. Your imagination is your guide in this fantastic garden escape.

The Edge Stateroom with Infinite Veranda has an entire living space that transforms into a veranda with the touch of a button. The 950-square-foot Edge Villa is a two-story opulent residence with a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living that gives direct access to The Retreat Sundeck, pool, bar and an exclusive area for Suite Class guests. The splendour of the Penthouse Suites is in the latest technology meant to adjust every comfort feature with a simple touch screen. Choose a setting to tuck you in and wake you up if you so desire! Lastly, the position of Celebrity Edge’s 1,892-square-foot Iconic Suites offers a sweeping panoramic view that is great for hosting in-suite occasions.
