I have so many good things to say about this cruise. The cabin was extremely spacious, the wait staff in the multiple dining rooms were excellent, the food was delicious and the spa service on the ship was wonderful. Unfortunately, I still do have some concerns with the Edge, one of them being the bar service. There is only bar available on the resort deck, and it was extremely difficult to get a drink. This boat held about 3000 passengers and at least 50% of the passengers would be on the pool deck. They had ample seating which was great, but to get a drink I had to wait at least 15 mins and that was the time it took for me to get it myself, don’t even get me started on the time it took to order it from a server. Seriously celebrity, you thought 4 bars on the ship were enough to accommodate 3000+ guests. Another HUGE problem was the provisions. By the 5th day the ship was out of sparkling water, by the 6th day all the bars were out of frozen drink mix, as well as certain dishes offered on their signature mdr menu. I was shocked. Celebrity is one of the biggest cruise lines in the industry and your telling me they can’t provide enough sparkling water for the course of 7 days? Another inconvenience on board were the hot tubs. The iconic martini glass design was gorgeous, but oh so impractical. To enter the hottub, I had to climb 3 flights of stairs and walk halfway across the pool deck. Let’s just say I got plenty of steps in on the days I chose to relax in the hot tub. Some more of the good about this ship was the SEA thermal suite. It was gorgeous and extremely relaxing, it was worth the steep price tag. Another great thing was the food. By far the best food I’ve ever had on a ship. Normandie was our favourite restaurant by far, followed by Cyprus, Cosmo and Tuscan. This ship is amazing, but definitely has some work to do in order to truly make this a celebrity standard ship.

This was our 27th cruise, 1st-time Celebrity Cruise. We couldn't have been happier. My husband and I are 52 years old, we have no kids. I love to have options when we travel. On a cruise there is always the option to do nothing, however, there is not always the option to do everything (except for now!). The Celebrity Edge, aside from the fact that it's absolutely modern and gorgeous, it was so much fun! We were worried about the fun. We had the preconceived notion that this was a company for retirees, people who like it "quiet". This ship had more fun going on than do I dare say it...The Fun ships??!! It did. But there are plenty of quiet spaces as well. Newest movies every night are played at the Rooftop Garden around 10-10:30pm. Multiple Trivia thru-out every single day. Loads of entertainments everywhere, from live singers & bands to the shows in the evening. But my absolute favorite...Silent Disco. Fun for all ages, it's hysterical to watch and a blast to participate in. There is so much going on, it was actually hard to fit it all in. The food was excellent. The 4 main dining rooms were beautiful, try to eat each one if you can, the menus vary slightly per dining room. Le Petite Chef was fun, and delicious, and did I mention fun?? Service was above and beyond, and I'm picky. We had an oceanview room at 200sq ft. and it was very comfortable. 50-55" interactive flat panel TVs on the wall. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Bottom line we loved it and we booked 2 more future cruises while on board. Hopefully, you'll love it too. Read Less

Cons: Overall, our room was clean but outdated. Spent nearly $850/person to sleep in a windowless room. WiFi was horribly expensive and slow (couldn’t even upload photos on instagram). Our TV was constantly flickering in and out. We were hassled to buy drink packages. Once bought, we could hardly get any service. And also not many options on the lower priced drink package (almost $400 for the lowest option). Also there is hardly anything to do on the ship during sea days. Pros: The food was okay and the crew was very friendly. Musicals were good. Lots of Talented entertainment. Showers were surprisingly larger than expected. The excursion we took was awesome. Decent amount of storage in room. This is not a bad cruise ship, but so not worth the money we paid. After talking to other people and their experiences, our next cruise will probably be with Royal Caribbean. Read Less

We sailed on another Celebrity ship in December and couldn't believe the marked difference in Infinity. Infinity is outdated and desperately needs a refresh. We ate in every restaurant and the steaks and tuna were always overcooked, despite ordering rare (except for Sushi on 5). On our prior trip, the specialty restaurants and servers were amazing and well worth the surcharge. We wasted so much money on poor service and subpar food. It was extremely disappointing. Luminae was great but the others were need some fine tuning. We were definitely disappointed. The entertainment wasn't anywhere close to the Equinox either. The rooms were outdated and need a refresh in a bad way. I feel as though we wasted a ton of money on this cruise. Tuscan Grille was terrible too. The fried calamari was cold and the server actually said, "oh, you want it hot?". It was crazy sad and by then we'd just given up. So disappointing. Read Less

Despite the following experience my overall experience was good. My dinner dining was great and my waiter went out of his way to accommodate my requests on more then one occasion. If you would like to do a shore excursion and are disabled, Celebrity does not assist you(due to insurance reasons) so you will need to book private excursions or bring an assistant with you. I had a unique experience on March 16th. While I was cruising I met a friend and on that morning I wanted to take her to the main dining room Silhouette instead of cafeteria. However she was a pescatarian and expressed her desire to go to the Ocean View Cafe. Due to my blindness going through the buffet it always takes time normally this is not a problem but because it was the last day of the cruise. I stated that we could speak to the staff at Silhouette to accommodate her dining needs. We decided to separate so we could all have food that we could enjoy. She surprised me by meeting me at Silhouette and I advised her that if they couldn't accommodate her. When we were seated, I proceeded to advise the wait staff about my dietary needs. My friend requested some roasted potatoes, and they stated there was no available. She then asked for Salmon. The dining staff stated that it was breakfast not lunch or dinner. Another waiter came and asked the same questions, while she was answering him he was giving her dirty looks. She was very upset. We decided we would leave once we finished our danishes and coffee. However she was extremely upset and had to collect herself in privacy. We ended up separating to the 2 different dining areas due to this issue. We were supposed to hang out for the day, but the experience cast a pall on the rest of the day. The issue wasn't their inability to accommodate us but the way that we were handled. I am hoping that the staff gets some additional training. I would love to hear back from someone regarding this issue. Read Less

This was the second half of our first back to back. We love to sail, snorkel and swim in the Caribbean waters, so this cruise was perfect for us as we loved all the ports. We did mostly private excursions as we prefer small groups. The sky suite corner aft is our favorite location...love the view. Crew from stateroom attendant to Luminae staff did everything to pamper us. Our cabin was kept spotless. Our butler was one of the best ever. Dinner and wine selections were very nice. Our only complaint was that the music was so loud that you couldn’t carry on a conversation in the bars. An after dinner drink with friends became a challenge. In the theater, singers sounded like they were screeching...much too loud for us. Overall, though. the entertainment was varied and pretty good. Embarkation and disembarkation was quick and smooth. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with both old and new friends, and plan on doing it all over again next year! Read Less

The design of the ship, aside from the colossal blunder of the HVAC engineering of the Infinite Balcony, is very well thought-out. Never felt crowded in the public areas, and the cabins were designed to take advantage of any available space to create storage. The dining menu was average. Nothing very creative. Nothing memorable. Service was outstanding and the dining staff were universally friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was dreadful. Two almost identical troupes performing bizarre interpretive dance moves for 90 endless minutes, and not even that well. Met one of the performers following the first night's performance, and told him I had the same feeling I had when I first saw Blue Man Group... "What am I watching here?" He said that was their intent. What I didn't tell him was that with Blue Man Group, it was entertaining. With these guys, it was boring. There was a similar troupe doing a bad interpretation of Midsummer Night's Dream. We could only endure that show for 20 minutes. Guest entertainers ranged from boring to pretty darn good to excellent (the excellent one was Chad Chesmark, a comedian/magician who excelled at both crafts; highly recommend him). The main problem with this ship is that the higher-ups, the ones who decide on the entertainment and overall customer experience, are completely out of touch with their customer. The interpretive dance is a case in point. They run a well-oiled machine for both embarkation and disembarkation. Read Less

This ship might be right for you but not even close for us. Well, where do I start? The positives are a short list. So let’s start there. The ship is beautiful, IF you like that type of ambiance. Glass, glass, glass not 100% clean, lots of steel and marble looking flooring. The crew is the most wonderful crew I have ever been with. 70 cruises and they were the nicest and most helpful they could have been. Celebrity picked the cream of the crop for the crew. OK, that is it for the positives. Now, Not talking about temperature, it has a very cold feeling. Hard and void of color. 90% of the seating is not comfortable at all. Either not cushioned at all or thin cushioned hard seats. Most seats are impossible to sit back on unless you are 8ft. tall. If you scoot back on the seat, you feel like a little child with your feet straight out. On deck 15 for get it completely. Total waste. There is no sitting comfortable at all unless you are eating. By the way, check out the specialty dining prices. Not worth those prices. Unbelievably high. So far out of wack. Stained carpeting throughout the ship. No excuses for that at all. The show at the EDEN is a total joke. Look at several YouTube videos of the ship. Especially that one. You will laugh and scratch your head wondering what the heck are they doing. Hopping around, jumping like frogs etc. Lots of wood statues that look stupid, one big black horse on deck 15 totally out of place on any ship. So much wasted space. On deck 5 from the elevators to the BLUE dining. You walk through a hall that is blacked out with sparkled flooring that is lit with ultraviolet lighting. The walls are all mirrors. More wasted space. Not enough places to enjoy in the evenings. Very few bars. The music is very limited to say the least. Only ONE location on the ship and is crowded most of the time. Deck 3,that is the martini bar. Not big at all with very limited seating. Those seats are Okay. Many sit at the cappuccino bar on deck 4 directly above the martini bar to listen to music on deck 3 coming from the martini bar. Those seats are NOT comfortable at all. Activities are very limited. Disco dancing with head phones to hear the music. A few trivia’s where you use paper and pencil. Other trivia where you use an iPad or iPhone to play. If you are not super, super fast. There is no way you will win. Very few of those anyhow. Instead of Bingo they have Deal or No Deal. That is also a big rip off. You pay $25.00 for a card that has the 20 cases on them. A random pick of who will play. There are 2 games per session. That was twice during the cruise. As the person that was picked to pay, picks a case, you turn over your case on the card to reveal the amount. If it matches theirs, you have one case that is good. You must get at least two, to get anything. The first 6 tiers are nothing more that match play in the casino. Meaning if you get two cases you now win $5 for match play all the way up to $200 match play. Then you must get 7 matching cases to win $500 and 8 matching to win $1000 the most I saw was 4 matching and they won $50 match play. Meaning you come up with $50 and they give you $50 to play in the casino. It is not cash. The only person that gets cash is the actual person playing that got picked. One person got $1.00, another $50.00, another $125 and the last was $396. The vast majority only got one case that matches. No Bingo, We miss bingo. Yes one slot tournament 7 day cruise. They had only one regular tournament. $25.00 to play. Only a 2 min. game. There were two free ones. Those were 1 min long. They gave away fake earrings. The last tournament was for women only on woman’s day. Same winnings. They have archery, I played, once and got the highest score. You get nothing. They call it an experience not a competition. They do not have a mini golf on the ship. They have putting on the carpet in the EDEN on deck 5. You putt to get it in a cup for points and the winner gets a prize. How exciting! They have 4 dining rooms. We did not eat in any of them, so I cannot say anything about those. We ate in the buffet. What we did eat was good. However, unless you are a master of the world, there is no way you know what is in those pots. I cannot ever pronounce most of what they were serving. Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Asian. Also Grilled, pork chops, minute steak, chicken, fish 98% of this exactly the same every lunch and dinner. Most of the deserts were all cake. EVERY DAY, lunch and dinner 98% the same. One roasted pig, with the head. Roasted duck. Enough pork every day to stuff a horse. I was told we missed the southern fried chicken. Do not know how. My wife had the New England clam chowder. It was so spicy she could not eat it. Since when do you spice up that? Even the roasted potatoes were very spicy. Most all even said spicey on the name plate. Only the soup was hot, temperature wise. . Nothing else was hot. Mostly warm to actually cold for the hot items. The meatloaf was actually cold, not even warm. Isn’t the food to be at a certain temperature to keep it safe? The buffet in the evening was sparse with people. Guess most ate in the 4 dining rooms and the specialty restaurants. The burgers were good and the fry’s. The hot dogs were not good. They had breaded fish. Not fried long enough. The inside of the coating was not done, gooey. Also, I do not like warm fish. The blood line, the black stuff. A lot of it. Gives it that old fish taste, Terrible. The mashed potatoes had a lot of the black that you usually cut out of the potato. The layout of the ship it dumb. At the stern is the pizza, mid ship is the buffet forward past the Olympic pool is the burgers and fry’s. That is a long walk. All other ships put those close to the buffet. The is no way to stay out of the rain going from the buffet to the burgers. Never had a chance to try the magic carpet. It was either locked or dining time. Once on deck 5 it was open but totally packed. When dining, it was on deck 14. The table cloths and the women’s hair were blowing all over the place. How can you eat in that condition? All the seating between the buffet and the mast grill get soaked when it rains. I am not talking about the lounge chairs by the pool either. Lunch at the EDEN “Forget it”. Sandwiches and soup. Not only do they have very little. There is no seating with tables to eat at. Woops, yes there were 4, 2 seats each. The state room was small but nice. Drab, no color. The sink was way too long taking up a lot of counter space. The shower stall was excellent and big. The toilet has a fast short flush. Guess to save on water. Problem, you needed to flush it 2 or 3 times for all to be disposed of. One guy told us he like the sink to wash his clothes in the nice big sink. Really! I am posting a few pictures. You may laugh. One is the soap they give you. It has coarse something in it. Looks like ants. You look at it. No sense posting pictures of the ship. You can see them all over Google. Cabin was the ocean view,regular window. If you like a bed that is super hard. It is for you. The couch, the same. Closet is very small but fine for 7 days. Safe is super small. On the other hand the TV is very big. The amount of money they spent on this ship and get terrible satellite reception. Docked in Key West, the NEWS channels were not watchable. The ship can handle the rough seas extremely well. One tour we took was in Grand Cayman. It was called “Trolley Roger”. Only $34 each to be an hour long with a pirate conducting the tour. My grandson wanted pictures of the pirate. This is what it ended up being. A jeep pulling a boat looking bunch of seats. Well, no pirate guide, just the driver and the tour, from the time we got on till the time we got off, only 40 min. long not an hour. That is about it. Well, I am sure I missed a lot. I cannot figure out who they are trying to cater to. Definitely the very wealthy. So many on the ship were the uptown type of people. Those that show off all their very expensive clothing and jewelry with their noses in the air. Two very nice ladies, one was the others maid. Showed us the castle they live in, in England. I said, nice castle, she replied only a small one. Only has 7 bedrooms, 2 cooks and a chef, 3 maids and 3 care takers for the lawn and flower garden. Showed us a picture of the buffet they through for a party. Made the one on the ship look very bad. As I am sure you can figure out. This ship is not for us. Needless to say we will never cruise on the EDGE again. We previously booked the APEX and I cancelled it. Maybe for you, but not even close to our cup of tea. This ship is NOT for children. Not much for them to do outside. Really nothing to do but drink, drink and drink more. Try to listen to music you might like. Only two places to really do that. The shows were good. The comedian was fair. You may love the ship. To each their own. Not the usual cruise ship you would expect. RCCL Serenade of the Seas for the ones who love a nautical theme ship with great food. A lot to do and a serene ship. Also Not for children. The Harmony. You might think crowded. This EDGE was actually crowded. Not the Harmony, so big and people just scatter. Awesome food and awesome for children. So many we talked to agreed. You may not believe this, but two liked it. So that’s it. Pardon the pun, but our opinion. Celebrity missed the boat with this one. Happy cursing!!! Read Less

As a long time cruiser on Celebrity we wanted to try the Edge and see what Celebrity newest design was all about. I was very disappointed in the cabin. We were on deck 11 Concierge class. 1. No pegs on the walls to hang thing. 2. When you open the shower door water leaks onto the floor making it slippery. 3. Door lock very hard to operate. Wife had a very difficult time opening door from the inside. 4. Sink could have been 8 inches or so narrower giving more counter space. 5. Could not control all room lights from the bed. 6. Could not control room shade from bed. 7. No privacy curtains. Room either dark or open to the world. 8. Full length mirror extremely difficult to use. Blocked by "desk" and chair. Yes if you moved chair, cleared junk from desk and slid desk into cabinet you had a full length mirror. What a joke. 9. Very useless "vase" taking up counter space. Also books and water, etc taken up needed counter space 10. Closet is another joke. As a very tall person we needed a lot of long hanging space. Did not measure it, but my guess is less than 12 inches wide, with some of that space being taken up by two nice robes. 11. The safe is to short in depth to store a tablet or notebook. No reason as there is depth on the shelf behind for a deeper safe. 12 Another big one for me is the TV. It takes approximately 60 seconds for the TV to start up. You sit or stand and watch an "X" fill in for an eternity. You then have to push arrows at least 5 or 6 times to get to a channel you want to watch. Hey guys this is the 21th century. We did like the extended balcony and used it as a sun-room. The larger bathroom was appreciated and the larger shower was a welcome change. Read Less

We were excited to book this cruise because it was a new ship. Our cabin 7315, Sunset Veranda, was very nice. The veranda was very large but there were only 2 regular chairs and a tiny table out there. They need to add a chaise lounge and a larger table, to enable having breakfast on the veranda. The rooms are decorated well, with plenty of storage. Our room had a small sofa, but it was very low, hard and uncomfortable. The bed was great. The bathroom was also very nice. Larger than most with a roomy walk-in shower and Hans grohe shower head. Bring your own shampoo, conditioner and body wash. They provide a watered down product that doesn’t lather. The disappointment came with the food. Dinners in the main dining rooms were below average. We dined in two of the specialty restaurants, the steak house and Le Petite chef. Both of these were good. The steakhouse had the best quality of food and excellent service. The cost to dine In Three specialty restaurants with a package is $137.00 pp. if you don’t have a package, the cost is 50.00pp. The cost is too high!!! We thought the entertainment was good. They had a comedian (Rondell) who did two shows. This guy was great. The entire audience laughed so hard, we couldn’t catch our breath. The orchestra was also good. They provided complimentary drinks (limited selection) if you were gambling in the casino. Nice! Read Less
