Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Edge kicked off the 2023–2024 season with an impressive itinerary exploring coastlines from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
On Nov 25, Celebrity Edge docked in Singapore for the very first time, allowing travellers a glimpse of the world-class ship before embarking on a 14-night itinerary to Indonesia and Australia.
Designed to stand out
Granted it is not one of the largest afloat, nor does it have the most water slides or the largest suite at sea, but Celebrity Edge has unique features specially designed to appeal to contemporary travellers, including singles with a penchant for luxury cruises.
Tim Jones, Celebrity Cruises’ managing director for Australia and Asia-Pacific, says that its contemporary interiors and outward-facing design allows passengers to experience “this beautiful part of the world” through unparalleled views of the sea and the destinations it visits.
From the roof garden to the many outdoor retreat spaces, to the spa and the indoor spaces, the hip-at-heart ship is more like a floating luxury boutique hotel.
Here are six things to know about Celebrity Edge.
- Memorable stays. Whether you want a two-storey infinity pool villa, a stateroom with a verandah, or a solo cabin with a balcony, you’ll find them all here. The Infinite Veranda, for example, blurs the line between indoor and outdoor living, providing you with open-air access to the ocean at the touch of a button that instantly adds more space.
- 29 distinct restaurants, bars, and lounges. Choose to dine at an award-winning chef’s restaurant, a reservation-only sushi bar, a high-tech French bistro with an animated dining experience or just pop by the grab-and-go gourmet deli.
- Unique spaces at sea. These include the nearly tennis court-sized The Magic Carpet – the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that serves as much more than a tender platform. Positioned on Decks 5 and 14, it serves as an eatery or bar. On special days, it climbs to Deck 16 for exclusive brunches and dinners “on the Edge”.
- Engaging performances and entertaining productions. Not to be missed is Eden, a three-deck sensory experience wrapped in glass that combines culinary and entertainment elements, such as acoustic artistes playing paired-back sets. The Rooftop Garden has a stage for live bands.
- A wide range of well-being amenities. They include The Spa, awellness destination measuring 2,044 square metres with an array of luxurious treatments. The SEA Thermal Suite, for example, features a steam room, float room, salt room, and heated tile loungers, among others. There are also beauty and fitness experiences, including a Kerastasesalon and group spin and yoga classes.
- Exclusive perks for all suite guests. The Retreat features a private restaurant, a lounge, and a sundeck, as well as a dedicated team of hosts and concierges on hand 24/7.
Celebrity Edge will continue sailing through Australia, New Zealand, and the tropical South Pacific until Apr 2024.
From Apr through Oct 2024, Celebrity Cruises will sail Asia year-round with the newly renovated Celebrity Millennium homeported in Yokohama, Tokyo. The ship’s 12-night itinerary includes visits to Mt Fuji, Kyoto, and Osaka as well as overnight stays in Osaka.
