Last week, the geniuses behind the Celebrity Edge, the newest ocean liner from Celebrity Cruises, revealed their breathtaking new ship in collaboration with Design Ambassador, Nate Berkus. Measuring at 1,004 feet with a cruising speed of 22 knots, it not only will operate beautifully from a technical perspective, but will also redefine luxury in the amenities it offers to its guests.
The staterooms available on the new ship are essentially penthouses that overlook the sea. Infinite verandas will takes guests to the water’s edge with the push of a button and the Italian-crafted Exclusive Cashmere Collection makes up the bedding, so even when you sleep, you’re basically dreaming in the language of luxury.
There’s also a Magic Carpet, a floating platform that levitates thirteen stories above sea level where guests can dine, lounge, and take in the views while the ship is sailing, but also drop down onto the water while the vessel is stationary. And can we talk about the resort deck? We are in awe of the martini-glass shaped jacuzzis, but there is even more to love as well. With an asymmetrical outward-facing pool, jogging track, and Rooftop Garden, it’s kind of like the paradise you’ve always envisioned yourself relaxing in – the plus? It’s atop a cruise ship.
The unveiling, held at Red Seven at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, offered an array of delicious hors d’oeuvres and champagne, while the Celebrity Cruise team introduced themselves and the ship to anxious media outlets.
Launching in December 2018, the Celebrity Edge will depart to the Caribbean on seven night cruises to the East Caribbean and West Caribbean.
