Revolutionary, innovative and outside of the box, the newly announced Celebrity Edge is a cruise ship, like no other. Sailing from December 2018 from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the Celebrity Edge will sail to both the Eastern and Western Caribbean. But what sets this new ship apart from the rest of the Celebrity family? Keep on reading to find out.
Celebrity Cruises announced that their new ship, Celebrity Edge will feature the infinite veranda, a stateroom that blends its indoor space with its outdoor. Offering 23% more space in your room, the new infinite veranda balcony cabins will feature bi-fold doors that can be opened completely. Celebrity Edge will feature 918 of these cabins.
Aside from the infinite veranda staterooms, the Celebrity Edge cabins are being designed to feature larger living areas and more storage space. They will also come with cashmere bedding.
Celebrity Edge will also feature 16 single-occupancy cabins - a first for the cruise line.
One of the most exciting features of the Celebrity Edge will be its new move-able deck, the Magic Carpet. Located on the outside of the ship, this unique feature will glide up and down between Deck 2 and Deck 16 and in its different positions, it will have different functions. The idea behind the Magic Carpet is to assist with disembarkation at tender ports and when not used for this, this unique deck will become a speciality restaurant, alfresco dining venue and a location for late-night parties.
