What takes a cruise ship beyond the traditional transportation and accommodation offerings to become a luxurious experience in its own right?
Kelly Hoppen, CBE, Tom Wright, Patricia Urquiola and Jouin Manku are among international design names who have pushed the boundaries of the cruising experience with the game-changing transformation of Celebrity Edge®. In 2019, it was named “one of the world’s greatest places” by TIME Magazine.
Among eye-popping innovations is the Magic Carpet®, a cantilevered platform that moves across ship levels, offering spectacular new outlooks as it extends pool and open-air dining areas. Other incredible features are the two-storey Edge Villas, Infinite Verandas® and outward-facing interiors that blend sightlines with the ocean.
In a major breakthrough for local cruising, this revolutionary luxury ship sails Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific in 2023-24, providing the chance for Australians to get cruising and recapture the enthusiasm of travel once more.
Discovering the world’s great port cities and coastal destinations is exhilarating, so when it comes time to recharge, the luxurious staterooms and suites on Celebrity Edge® cocoon you in tranquil luxury.
These aren’t cabins – but boutique hotel rooms designed to soothe and indulge. One of the world’s foremost interior designers, Kelly Hoppen, CBE, has created inviting spaces; where at day’s end you can snuggle into your King-sized eXhale® bedding and hypoallergenic, eco-friendly Cashmere™ Mattress.
Accommodation options suit every style, right up to the two-bedroom Iconic Suite, where sheer opulence is matched by sweeping views from above the captain’s bridge. Those looking for a resort within a resort can check into The Retreat®.
The Infinite Veranda® stateroom has the added pleasure of taking your room right to the water’s edge to enjoy the sea breezes and your own private panoramas as the ship sails into spectacular ports. These spacious staterooms blur the indoor-outdoor boundary, allowing you to open up the windows with the touch of a button.
The 29 unique food-and-beverage experiences focus on the destinations you visit, bringing the world’s flavours to your table. And it won’t only be your tastebuds that are engaged, but all of your senses. This isn’t just food, but a five-star dining experience.
Raw on 5 , meanwhile, features a dramatic raw bar where an abundance of choices range from lobster tails and crab claws to oysters and sea-bass ceviche. Sushi and sashimi are at the forefront of this indulgent experience, accompanied by a great range of Japanese beers and sake, such as a semi-sweet plum sake or the brasher, full-bodied flavours of Snow Maiden sake.
The key to a carefree holiday? Knowing exactly what you’ve paid for. That’s why Celebrity Cruises has an Always Included™ guarantee. Every one of our cruises includes drinks, Wi-Fi and service charges* without exception. That’s every sailing, every room, every time – simple as that.
Celebrity Edge® takes your wellness journey beyond expectations with holistic experiences to invigorate the body, de-stress the mind and soothe the soul.
The next-level sanctuary for wellness and luxury is The Spa where more than 120 rejuvenating treatments use both traditional treatments and cutting-edge innovations to fine-tune your body and spirit whilst on board.
Afterwards, explore total body relaxation in any of the eight distinct spaces in the SEA Thermal Suite. Breathe in deeply while in the salt room, surrender your skin to the magic of the steam room or immerse in a full-body ritual in the Turkish hammam.
Of course, there are times when a little more action is needed. Visit the fitness centre where experts have created yoga, meditation, strength and cardio programmes as well as Peloton cycling.
Complement your wellness journey with programming from Celebrity Cruises’ Women in Wellness ambassadors comprised of influential wellness leaders, including our very own Australian Olympian Morgan Mitchell and Co-founder of ELEMIS, Noella Gabriel.
