Great ship, excellent crew. It certainly divides opinion in several aspects, and I suspect the haters are mostly conventional cruisers, whereas the lovers have less experience of conventional cruising. This was only our 5th cruise, but we have sailed with Celebrity twice previously on Constellation and yes, Edge is VERY different. We loved it. It is clearly more advanced technologically - the Celebrity app worked really well for us, and I understand it is being/has been, introduced on other ships in the fleet. The overwhelming feeling on board is how much space there is, in particular the Oceanview café with its high ceiling and enormous windows. Eden is an unusual and fascinating concept which we really enjoyed, but I can understand not everyone would appreciate it. The Revelation show was something special, although it is quite unclear what is going on. Just be prepared for the performers to try to interact with you if you are within reach. Quality and choice of food was very good everywhere we ate. There was plenty of variety in the entertainment and activities on board, not necessarily all to our taste. The IV cabin was designed very well, except for the IV part. The electric window and blind were very slow and noisy in operation and I heard of some people whose window stuck and had to be pushed to get it moving again. I suspect they may prove unreliable over time. Also the blind is not convenient if you want a quick peek at the outside world. Congratulations Celebrity, you have broken the mould with this ship, even if it is marmite!

Thoroughly enjoyed our cruise aboard this new ship! Cabins are the best ones we have ever had (we have been lucky enough to have over 15 cruises with various lines - 5 with celebrity) . The friendliness onboard from all levels of staff cannot be beaten. We had a sunset veranda cabin which was stunning (the only downside was when the sea was rough it was like being on a see saw!!). The only downside was the seafood restaurant (Raw 5) was an open display of fish which created a very strong odour all along that corridor - would have been better in a closed off chiller ! This put us off even eating in there.

Excellent cruise no problems. Internet overpriced along some of the other packages.

Amazing ship. Everything state of the art. Food was outstanding! Specialist restaurants very expensive and a waste of money. Food in standard dining area was just as good, if not nicer! Best ship we have been on! It was our honeymoon which the ship knew prior, but this was barely acknowledged which was disappointing. The shows we saw were great! Spa was amazing.. however unbelievably expensive for a treatment! Thank you to Iglu once again. As always every trip booked with you is faultless and planned to perfection. Wouldn’t book a cruise holiday with anyone else!
