Sailing on the Edge by LarryAtTheBeach

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We booked a Costco Kirkland Signature Culinary cruise on the Celebrity Edge. We booked in a year in advance after hearing about how wonderful the Edge was. The ship did not disappoint. Our cabin, with the innovative, balcony was the best cabin we have ever had (17 cruises total) and the bathroom was also the best/biggest. We loved the Infinite Balcony! The glass could go down; you could close it and still have a full floor to ceiling view; you could sit on balcony and watch tv; you could close window and pull shade down making it darker for sleeping; or you could close the opaque french doors...so many options and it will be tough to go back to a regular balcony on next cruise. Suggestion: check to ensure your mini-bar is correct when you board, our's was not. The bedding was so very comfortable! Try to get a cabin with the bed near the balcony. Side note, I think the Edge would be ideal for Alaska sailings. We were celebrating our anniversary and received a nice sign on the door and a heart shape and rose petals on our bed. Our steward, Mary, was outstanding! As usual, the service on Celebrity was top notch; no complaints or suggestions for improvement. The dining in the 4 main dining rooms was very good. However, the meals did not seem as good as when I sailed on Celebrity before, 6 years ago. They were able to accommodate my wife's dairy food allergy, but this is the first cruise that we have been on where there isn't a primary person assigned to take care of her meal orders and this was disappointing, but it was handled OK. We did not try the specialty restaurants that they push daily, because of the $55 pp cost. I was happy to see that they enforced the dress code and saw a guy turned away from b'fest in the MDR for wearing a tank top. The entertainment in the Theater was hit or miss....loved Vox Fortura and Hype, not impressed with Colours or Kalidescope (sp?) and the comedian was good. Live entertainment around the ship was good, but wished there were more and more at the Rooftop Garden area. The entertainment at Eden was just a waste of time. One night we waited 30 minutes for the acrobatic show, only to be told at 7:30pm that they had to cancel it because the ship was moving too much - - nice that they made us wait 30 minutes and then it was too late to get a seat in theater. ugh. Even though there are only 6 bars on board do not miss the nighly 'show' by the bartenders at the Martini bar!!! Speaking of drinks, the prem drink pkg allowed me to have Buffalo Trace, Woodford, and McCallum and my wife, Gray Goose. However, otherwise, they could improve on their selections of booze, especially rums. The Old Fashion from Eden was worst Old fashion I ever had. haha Boarding the ship took about 10 mins from curb to setting foot on the ship and we carried off our luggage at 7:30I This isn't a cruise for children IMHO, we saw maybe 10 kids on board. there were very few minorities but it seemed popular with LBQTQ. There were a lot of international cruisers. Love the gym being open 24 hrs. There is a very nice jogging/walking trail but guests use it for whatever and you have to dodge and avoid them. the jogging trail goes thru deck 16. One time while running on the trail, we had to dodge the cruise director as he was holding a dance class IN THE JOGGING LANE! The port I most wanted to visit was Costa Maya and we had to skip it because the wind wouldn't allow the ship to be docked safely. Shopping: too many high-end stores and the on-board duty free liquor shop was a joke. We visited with the Next Cruise staff and was unimpressed with what they offered and pretty much with the Next Cruise program. It is no where as good as NCL's program. Overall, loved the ship. However, this didn't crack my top 5 cruises ever (out of 17).

Not exceptional by csrvasr

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I have been on a number of cruises, and this one didn’t make the top two. The food was substandard, and while the decor was interesting, I didn’t find the design inspired.

Livin on the edge by BeachChairs

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Celebrity, Celebrity, Celebrity.. You touted this ship as the coming of the Lord. Where do I begin? First off, I love most of Celebrity ships and have sailed on most of them. Celebrity sell,s cruise,s because of there reputation of having fantastic food.. So let's start with that. The food was great, no issue's at all. The main issue was going to 4 places to eat every night, unless you bought the specialty package. Problem number 1. No matter if you made reservations to any restaurant, you always waited to be seated, sometimes for 30 minutes.. Next..service in restaurants... Fantastic. We always ordered an extra entree to sample with no issue's.. Next.. Cabin's! We had the infinite veranda cabin.. Sorry, its not a veranda, not even close. They attached 2 sliding doors right past the couch and rug, placed some hardwood floor down with 2 chairs to sit on.. Its a rectangular window that opens up half way from the top to a cross bar that blocks your view.. Problem number 2. There is a cloth screen that is in front of it that has to be raised to lower the window, or closed for more privacy.. So you have to stand there and hold the switch while it slowly opened or closed. Than you repeat the same thing to open your half window..Now when your ready to close the so called veranda, you once again hold the toggle switch and the window slowly raises up making noise and struggling to close back up.. What a stupid idea. Making you stand there holding a switch instead of installing a simple button that did it for you.. Next, the Grand foyer. Most ships have this beautiful stairs that you walk down dressed up in your best attire to the bottom. Not on this ship. It has 2 stairs that lead you to, yeah you guessed it, a bar and a small dancing area.. Next, those bar's and the drinks that come out of them.. Unless you purchased a beverage package, either classic @ 59.00 a DAY, or a premium @ 69.00 per day, you can easily run up a huge tab in one or two days. Example,1 Pina Colada is $9.00, plus $3.00 gratuity, but! if you want a Baily,s say for instance, It,s a $1.00 more.. Celebrity, Celebrity, you have people pay for a drink package and still charge them $5.00 for fresh orange juice plus a gratuity.. Want a Cappuccino? Ha, It,s $5.00 plus gratuity, ridiculous! On sea day number one, the pool and the deck above where full of people sitting on there chairs if they could find one that did not have been saved with someones false teeth or prosthetic leg.. Bar servers? Ha, 1 person above pool deck struggling to take drink orders and 2, maybe 3 at pool, none of which could keep up for bar service .. Next up, entertainment.. At sea day number 1, with all those crowds sweating waiting for there drinks, it was around 230 maybe 3 pm when someone said, where is the music? It was dead silent for most of the day, sort of like a funeral setting.. Than finally, some female starts singing but most people where leaving to once again stand in line to be fed..Night entertainment.. In the Theatre it was average, but one of the best highlights was the four tenors Vox Fortura who sang opera twice that week, they where fantastic.. Excursions, Most cancelled because of bad rough seas, causing people who booked on there own to lose there money of what ever they where going to do when the ship sailed buy Costa Maya and headed to Cozumel. I,ll be back later with more..

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

It was an excellent cruise. We absolutely loved the EDGE ship. Captain Kate was fantastic. Highly recommend Celebrity. If you love your cruise, and you want to book your next cruise do it on the ship to take advantage of savings and packages.

The Celebrity Edge by a2brutea

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Edge

The Celebrity Edge is awesome! The Oceanview café buffet had an excellent selection of food. I was totally impressed with the wide array of selections. All were delicious. I loved the outside bar at night on the fifteenth deck with the breeze from the ocean. Jerome and Marlon did a great job serving cocktails. Lobster night was one of my favorite meals prepared on the ship. We loved our waiter Pedro in the cosmopolitan restaurant. He suggested the best appetizer and dessert. His personality was so friendly and his attentiveness made the evening. He was my favorite server. In the Normandie Restaurant our waiter Mynor was terrific. He also had a great personality and did an awesome job serving! The food in the restaurant Eden was unique and flavorful. The ambience in the restaurant created a very special experience. The food was amazing.! I recommended it to everyone I saw on the ship. I also ate at the Steak House, and the filet mignon was cooked to perfection. The thermal spa area was relaxing and well worth the money spent. The only tip I would like to recommend is to get better locks on the lockers. They were difficult to use, and many people could not open them and had to call the receptionist. This is a state of an art ship with great electronics and digital functions. The locks on the lockers need to be replaced with something better. The celebrity edge is a fantastic ship. The crew makes it come to life. They let you know that they want you to have a good time, and they go out of their way to help you. The infinity verandas are really cool. It makes the room so much bigger. Also, we enjoyed our room service as we sat looking out at the ocean with the window down. Many of the guests hog the chairs in the morning, and when they leave, they do not put their dirty towels in the bin. You can’t tell what chair is used or not used.Of course, that is not the ships fault.

EDGE great ship but getting us to by hwkldla

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Preliminary remark: We have 40 cruises behind us; 20 of them with Celebrity cruises. We know any ship of the Millenium class and the Soltice class too. Now we were at the EDGE for the first but not the last time. Many things on the ship take getting used to; not in a negative sense. Pros: Ship: equipment, cleanliness, etc. - excellent Cabin: equipment, cabin service, cabin cleanliness, the new "balcony feeling" - everything excellent Restaurants: 4 main restaurants; we preferred Tuscany - food, service - very good Service: waiter Sheldon, Haluk (wine waiter) and Meta excellent. Cons: Restaurants are almost always crowded Pool: Guests reserve several sun loungers early in the morning. From 9 a.m. there is no longer a couch; especially on sea days. Loungers are reserved and unused for hours. Seating areas: almost always occupied. Guests put their feet on other seating and also on the tables !!! Real story: Jep Bush and George W. Bush visited their mother Barbara Bush (great lady). Georg W. sat down and put his feet on the table. Then Barbara said please take your feet off the table. Then Jep says: Mother, that's the president. Barbara replied: I don't care that I don't like to have any feet on the table.

Wow!! by Becks1234

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Celebrity Edge

Wow!! This was our first cruise but definitely isn’t our last. The ship is amazing, staff are so friendly, our room steward was awesome, food was delicious, beverages were cold. Definitely a trip of a life so much so we booked Apex next year. Only small beef was sun loungers getting booked early with bags and towels then no one comes and if you need shade hard to find as everything is taken. I am so grateful to the staff who helped make our first cruise such a memorable one. 💜

Celebrity Edge is great! Travel poor by edwweiss

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Other than the problems we had with Travel (which I would not recommend and would never use again) The Edge was a superior ship and I believe many future new cruise ships will be modeled after some of the improvements the have made on this almost new class of ship for Celebrity. The cabin was outstanding. The Infinity Veranda adds so much to the room. The added space, even though it could be closed off (which we never did), just made the cabin bigger and more comfortable than any other cabin we have been in (15+ cruises to date). The bathroom was laid out better, giving it a more spacious feel. Staff was very accommodating. Food was average for cruises. The lunch buffet was above average, with many good choices and above average food. Specialty restaurants were just fair and main dining was average for cruises. This is not a boat for children and there were few on this cruise. Entertainment was above average. We've been to Puerto Rico and St. Martaan before. Tortola was only new port, and not much there to enjoy. We knew that going in because we were mainly looking for a relaxing, enjoyable experience on the Edge and that is exactly what we got. Absolutely recommend The Edge!

Wonderful ! by celestev99

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We loved everything ! Great ship, best service, friendliest crew, food unbelievable! Entertainment not that great. The age group of the cruise came to a big surprise to us 60+ lots of electric scooters for the elderly. The older age group is a big negative factor for us.

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise by maryterwil

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Food and service were excellent everywhere on ship. Rooms were clean and well laid out. Loved the bathroom. Chairs in common areas very uncomfortable, especially lounge chairs by pool and sunning decks. Lounge chairs do not come up high enough to a comfortable reading height. Public restrooms were always chaotic, women were unable to tell if they were occupied or not. Tortola and St. Martin are nice ports. San Juan is a waste of a stop especially at night. Overall very nice cruise.

Great ship! by bjviken

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

We loved the Edge and all of the staff. It was a beautiful ship and well designed. It had a more casual atmosphere than some of the older ships. Very comfortable. The staterooms were very nice. We enjoyed Guiseppe the cruise director and Captain Kate and her cat. Took a behind the scenes tour which was very informative. I have a latex allergy - this ship uses both synthetic and latex gloves - which meant that I had to have special dinners prepared - disappointing! I would recommend that the ship stop using latex for the health and safety of the guests and crew.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Edge / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

I went on this cruise not for the ports of call, but for the ship as I heard do much about it. Well the ship was unbelievable. The theater was high tech and the other venues were do inviting. I was on Deck 3 AFT was so very happy with the location and the cabin itself. What a great cruise it was!
