I recently had the chance to take a two night preview cruise on Celebrity Cruises’ newest cruise ship, Celebrity Edge. Celebrity Edge is also the newest cruise ship in the world and will start sailing cruises to the Caribbean from Port Everglades next week.
Celebrity Edge has been named the most anticipated new cruise ship of the year. But I’ll be honest, it’s not just that. It’s the most impressive new cruise ship in years. While Cruise Fever will soon release our video tour and review of the ship on YouTube and Facebook, here were my first impressions of Celebrity Edge.
I haven’t been this wowed by a new cruise ship since Viking Ocean and Quantum of the Seas debuted several years ago. Celebrity Edge is unlike any other cruise ship at sea. The ship brings new original concepts that aren’t “stolen” from other cruise ships.
It’s almost as if there are two different Celebrity Edge cruise ships. There’s the day version and then at night, many of the public spaces transform into completely new venues. From Eden to the Rooftop Garden, I loved walking around the ship at night seeing how these spaces transformed from the day.
