Review summary

This was our 55th cruise so we are a bit experienced. Loved The Edge ship. Officers were fantastic & mingled with the cruisers. During inclement weather the captain can and did turn off ability to open balcony window.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was excellent. This ship has the most amazing buffet ever experienced. Was not a buffet fan until this ship.

Magic Carpet Bar

3 out of 5

Lovely but way overrated. It does not move while at sea. It is good when tendering.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Plenty of exciting activities offered.

Stage shows not so good. Obvious low bidder gets to entertain.

Children's Programs

Didn’t take children but must admit The Basement looked awesome for teens.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5

Ship Quality

Ship design a game changer in design. Spacious common areas & very clean. Large restrooms mostly attended too.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
LOTS of storage, more than any other ship balcony cabin. Shower much larger too.

Ship tip

Try it. It’s a game changer.

Ports of call

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

2 out of 5
Came off a Princess Cruise & had 3 days prior to this cruise. Three days in Civitavecchia is 2 days too long. Did take the train direct to Rome one day to kill time. Not much to do here.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

4 out of 5
Went to Pisa which was ok. You only need to see Tower once. Enjoyed walking around Livorno after excursion.

Toulon, France

3 out of 5
Just OK. Most excursions lasted many hours which we don’t like.

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands

5 out of 5
Beautiful city. Took city tour & visited beautiful pearl “factory.”

Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Canary Islands

5 out of 5
Lovely city. Took wonderful HOHO bus & learned so much. Had a lovely outdoor lunch.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Did not visit port

Disembarked ship & went straight to airport. Been many times & love it though.


5 out of 5
Very easy & well organized.
