Review summary

This was the second cruise on the Edge. It was wonderful. As everyone says, Captain Kate is great. She has a great sense of humor. She walks around the ship and stops to talk to anyone who comes up to her. She will take pictures with you as well. The crew was very happy to have us back, and the passengers were also happy to be back. The ship was very clean and almost everyone seemed to be vaccinated. The boarding process was easy. Our ship was only about 50% full, so it there always room to sit. The dining rooms were not over crowded. It was a great trip.

Embarkation

You were given a specific time to board. The lines were not long. The process was streamlined and efficient. You could go right to your room and drop of your carry on items.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
There are four main dining rooms. We ate in a different one each time. There is a standard menu and a special menu for the restaurant. We liked Normandie the best. We also ate at 3 specialty restaurants. We booked them ahead and received a discounted price. We were able to use our on board credit to pay for them. There were plenty of bars. There is also a cafe station that is included, so we had hot chocolate and coffee with liquor drinks often. They have a pastry case that is included as well. We also were able to get bottled water (flat or sparkling) at any time included with the drink package. There were plenty of people working the tables. We never had to wait very long for service. All of the staff and all of the bartenders were very friendly and happy to have passengers back on board.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We played trivia several times a day. There were a lot of activities on board. We listened to music often in different venues.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
There was music in several venues. There were shows in the theatre.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The waiters and room steward were wonderful. Our room was always cleaned when we returned in the morning. It was ready at night too. The staff was all happy and eager to help. We asked for directions and they took us to the destination.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was immaculate. They are cleaning it all of the time. They are removing empty dishes and glasses as soon as people are done with them.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This was a cabin with an infinite veranda. We loved it. It felt like an extension of the room. We could sit there and watch the water but not have the humidity. You could open the top window for fresh air, but this time of year we did not do so. There is a curtain that comes down and blocks the light so the room stays dark.

Ship tip

Take advantage of the coffee bar - if you like hot chocolate - ask them to add Kaula to it - it makes a great drin.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
The process was easy. They had lounges for you to wait. They put a QR code in the newsletter early in the week for you to pick a time to disembark. It was smooth process. It took about 20 minutes from the time we were called until we were waiting for our ride.
