"A Ship Designed to Depart from the Expected".
Travel partners got a glimpse at Celebrity Edge today. The new class of ships, the first introduced to the Celebrity fleet since 2007, is the industry's first ship to be designed in 3D. Celebrity has teamed up with top designers, including internationally renowned interior designer Kelly Hoppen MBE of Kelly Hoppen Interiors and visionary architect Tom Wright of WKK. American designer Nate Berkus serves as Celebrity Edge's design ambassador, to bring this ship to life.
Pictured above, the Magic Carpet is designed with comfortable seating, a full bar, and space for live music performances, so it truly is a destination itself. This spectacular space opens to several decks and transforms into a new and exciting venue depending on which deck it’s positioned. Yes that's right - Magic Carpet travels 13 stories high and rests on decks 2, 5, 14, 16
“Celebrity Edge is one of the most exciting, innovative and transformational ships I have ever been involved with,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of Celebrity’s parent company, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “The new features and refined design will establish a new baseline for ships from here on out.”
The most transformational aspect of our stateroom design is the introduction of the Edge Stateroom with Infinite VerandaSM. These incredible rooms take our standard veranda stateroom and, with the touch of a button, blur—even erase—the boundaries between inside and outside living space. Your entire living space becomes the veranda, letting you walk right out to the water’s edge. This brilliant innovation gives you luxurious open air access to the sea, whenever you wish.
"Our guests don't want to just skim the world like a magazine – they want to feel a human connection with it," said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. "Every element of Celebrity Edge is meant to make that connection intense and unforgettable. Our new class of ship will allow guests to experience their journeys with the uniqueness and sophistication that marks the rest of their lives."
Celebrity's Modern Luxury is taken to a new level with Celebrity Edge. It will be the standard for all cruise lines to follow going forward. "Edge" is an appropriate name in our opinion. Celebrity Cruises has taken cruising "Over the Edge" with this design. More will be revealed over the year, but view this video for an inside look into the future of cruising.
