Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Edge will be among the first

Celebrity Edge

Get ready to cruise the Caribbean again on a magic carpet ride. This summer the billion dollar, 2,918-passenger, show-stopping Celebrity Edge  is doing a series of island hopping.

And let me tell you, cruising the tropics on this cutting age ship is an other worldly experience. Almost  like being on a magic carpet ride.

Rolling out the Magic Carpet

Celebrity Edge actually has a  Magic Carpet.  It scales 16 decks from the side of ship in cantilever-style. And is like no other ship appointment.

The Magic Carpet houses the specialty restaurant  “Dinner on the Edge,” on Deck 16.  On the 14th deck it turns into an open-air expansion of the main pool area. And on deck 5 it becomes an al fresco restaurant.

Other outstanding factors 

Don’t expect your usual Caribbean mega ship ride.  This  cutting edge ship is like no other.  She’s an experience of her own.

After all, the 2,918-passenger  Celebrity Edge is the line’s billion dollar baby (yep that’s how much it cost to build). And she’s chock-fill  of wow factors and  innovations  defined by cutting-edge touches and  dramatic 3-D  designs.

Staterooms break boundaries of traditional ships with balconies situated close to the ocean. And, there are  1,000 Edge Staterooms with Infinite Verandas with retractable  windows.  And with the push of a button you can control  everything from in your room.

The Rooftop Garden, designed by Architect Tom Wright hosts a  a resident horticulturist  and a venue for live music/movies and dining.

Dining on the Edge

 The ship offers a dizzying display of dining options. There’s the Tuscan Restaurant offering  Italian-inspired dishes.  The Normandie Restaurant goes Gallic.  The Cyprus Restaurant gives a nod to the Mediterranean and Celebrity’s Greek heritage.  The Cosmopolitan Restaurant dishes out new American cuisine. Together, the main dining menus offer Celebrity’s largest selection of dishes ever.

If you book a suite you get  to dine the private  Luminae at The Retreat. For carnivores there’s Fine Cut Steakhouse or  Rooftop Garden . Eden Restaurant elevates the dining experience with a lively, open air kitchen and menus that deliver sensory and experiential offerings served by performers known as Edenists.

Seafood lovers will love Raw on 5 offering  delicacies from the sea and beyond. Think of it as a  blend of St. Tropez and New England seafood.

Daytime dining

For breakfast and lunch Le Grand Bistro resembles a bustling boulangerie-patisserie. There you can enjoy  handmade macaroons, artisanal cheeses and freshly baked bread available on-the-go.  They dim the lights at night for a new experience.

Celebrity offers fares inclusive of drinks, tips and WiFi. Bookings are now open at Pavlus or 800-528-9300,
