Review summary

Celebrity Edge was well worth the trip. We would take it again.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very quick and easy because we had done the online check-in in advance. No waiting at all.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We ate in the main dining rooms, and the food was excellent. The buffet was very high quality, and the one specialty restaurant we tried, the Petit Chef experience at Le Grand Bistro, was unique and enjoyable in addition to the fine cuisine.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Mostly the fitness center and trivia games. The fitness center had top quality equipment and was well maintained.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The onboard talent was top notch, and the outside entertainers that they provided were professional and very talented. One show in particular, The Hot Summer Night's Dream was really special.

Children's Programs

None that we know of.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our waiter, Juniarta and his assistant, Jacquiline were friendly and helpful. Our room steward, Mohen was the best. Friendly, and went out of his way to help us.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The Edge is a unique ship, with innovative design. From Eden to the Magic Carpet, it was a lot of fun. All the common areas were immaculate. They did a great job on this new ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very clean, and enough room for us. We had the Infinite Verandah, which I would select again if possible.

Ship tip

Expect high prices for beverages.

Took an excursion to the Normandy Beaches and the American Cemetery. One of the most meaningful experiences in a long time. Then, they took us to a quaint French fishing village where we ate lunch at a riverside cafe. Wonderful day.

Went straight to London.
