Celebrity Cruises' newest vessel, Edge, launches in December 2018, and it is without a doubt an event to look forward to. The addition of a new revolutionary venue is, along with the other unique features on board, transforming the Edge into a unity that can be considered a balm for the soul.
The idea of the new venue named 'Eden' is to allow you to connect with nature and art while enjoying yourself. The Eden's designers broke some of the rules of cruise entertainment in order to create this exceptional experience, so be prepared to make incredible memories! Names including Scott Butler of Wilson Butler Architects and internationally known designer Patricia Urquiola have partnered with Celebrity to design the revolutionary Eden experience. In addition, Queen of the Night creators Variety Worldwide helped form the theatrical atmosphere so that dining becomes a real event.
Spanning three decks at the aft of the ship, Eden is the venue with the most outward facing glass compared to any other room at sea, offering spectacular views. Enjoy relaxing morning yoga, a good book, or grab a morning coffee from the Eden Café while overlooking the sea. In the afternoon, partake in a seminar expanding your culinary and cocktail-making skills as well as your wine knowledge in the open kitchen. Meanwhile, shows from sitar players and aerialists among others will fill the space with beautiful melodies and movements. As the evening takes over, a wonderful combination of performance art, culinary experiences and nightlife arises, leading you further into the Celebrity tradition onboard: the Tree of Life. Here, the Library of Plants reaches 18 feet above Eden bar, enabling you to enjoy fresh ingredients for your cocktails and drinks. In Eden you will find an almost spiraling path, making the venue dynamic and interesting. Plus, its outward facing structure will give you the feeling of being one with the sea. Not only will the revolutionary venue Eden create memories tied to the visual, but simultaneously it will create memories of sounds, memories of smells and memories of the unique atmosphere, awakening all of your senses.
The maiden voyage of the Celebrity Edge will take place on December 16, 2018, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and move on to the British Virgin Islands. If you are in search of a new way to cruise that will blow your mind, this may be your dream voyage!
