Celebrity Edge, a must Cruise for 2019!

I was lucky enough to be invited to spend a few days on the new Celebrity Edge, as well as the honour to witness the Naming Ceremony with esteemed Nobel Peace recipient, Malala Yousafzai, as the Godmother of Celebrity Edge.  As eloquently introduced by Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President & CEO of Celebrity Cruises, “She was willing to sacrifice her life to bring quality education to the 130 million young girls around the world who still do not have access.  We are proud to be working alongside the Malala Fund to help achieve this goal” 

The ship makes a bold modern luxury statement, from Infinite Veranda staterooms, enlarging your room by 27%, to Iconic 2 bedroom Suites offering more than 2500 opulent square feet of sweeping, panoramic views from front to back!

So many intimate public sanctuaries including; the country club vibe of the exclusive Retreat; the Magic Carpet’s floating platform reaching heights of 13 stories, designed with a full bar and space for live music; to the ultimate gathering place of the Grand Plaza offering a majestic 3 story venue home to the Martini Bar, Café al Bacio, and the Grand Plaza Café.

The ship hosts a total of 29 restaurants, bars and lounges with 5 complementary dining venues. I relished in the Mediterranean inspired fare of Cyprus, incredible Seafood bar display of RAW on 5 and the lively gathering at the Martini Bar!

If wellness is a must have on you vacation the Edge is your ship! The “The Spa” offers up more than 22 ,000 opulent sprawling sq. ft featuring all the newest body treatments, along with a Turkish bath, soothing Salt room and Rainfall Water Therapy to sooth away any stresses.

The Fitness Center on Celebrity Edge has all the cardio equipment to challenge you while you enjoy the floor-to-ceiling windows but it’s the multiple hottest trends fitness classes that peaked my interest. On a 2 day cruise I thought I would take in as much as I could starting with Your Daily Workout at 7:30 am, moving on to Yoga on the Deck and finishing up with a late afternoon full body workout of Bungee Fitness, with lots of laughs as you bounced off the floor with a new twist to the Burpee!  The next day I was paying for it!

To sum it up this ship has a whole lot to offer that you just can’t experience in a few days.  I look forward to my return on the extraordinary Celebrity Edge!
