Celebrity Edge, created with architects and designers including Kelly Hoppen MBE, Tom Wright and Patricia Urquiola, launches in December 2018 – the first ship to be conceptualised completely in 3D.
Celebrity Edge has an outward-facing design that breaks from traditional ship design, which is realised most dramatically through the Edge Stateroom with Infinite Balcony, and the unique Magic Carpet.
Rooms designed by Kelly Hoppen MBE
Designed by Kelly Hoppen, Celebrity Edge’s accommodation has been evolved to dramatically expand the size of staterooms. The new Edge Stateroom with Infinite Balcony means that the touch of a button gives guests open-air access to the sea, as well as the chance to personalise everything from lighting, shades, temperature and service.
With more than double the number of suites than on Celebrity Cruises’ current fleet, new accommodation options include two Iconic Suites situated above the ship’s bridge with panoramic windows enveloping the dining room, living room and bedrooms, and six split-level Edge Villas with private plunge pools and direct walk-out access to the private suite enclave, The Retreat Sundeck.
The Magic Carpet and Eden
The size of a tennis court and scaling 16 decks of the ship, the Magic Carpet is the world’s first cantilevered venue. At the summit of the ship on Deck 16 the Magic Carpet offers ‘Dinner on the Edge’ for 100 guests; and alongside Deck 14 it becomes an open-air expansion of the main pool area.
On Deck 5 it extends one of the ship’s speciality restaurants offering al fresco seating near the water’s edge; and at its lowest position on Deck 2, the Magic Carpet becomes a embarkation station.
Spanning three decks at the aft of the ship with almost 7,000 sqft. of glass, the Patricia Urquiola-designed Eden has more outward-facing glass than any other room at sea.
Celebrity Cruises has curated a new shore excursion programme to match the new ship, with the first sailing on 16 December 2018, a seven-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise from Fort Lauderdale.
Celebrity Edge will alternate seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries before relocating for Barcelona and Rome for summer of 2019 offering 7- to 11-night sailings, including a cruise from Southampton.
