Celebrity Cruises has revealed new details of its coolest and slickest ship, the Celebrity Edge. The new feature, called Eden, is a public space which spans over three decks.
Eden (which will be designed to look like the Garden of Eden) is a lush area filled with cool lounge spaces, a dining area as well as a bar. It even has a section called the Library of Plants which has five-metre tall tress inside.
The space, which will be an architectural marvel, has more outward-facing glass than any other room at sea.
In the morning, guests can chill out before the day’s activities with yoga, a good book or have a casual breakfast of fresh coffee and croissants.
In the afternoon, Eden hosts a number of enrichment seminars with guest speakers, wine-tastings and cocktail making classes as well as performances from sitar players to aerialists.
By night, the Eden becomes an amazing playground of performance art and nightlife. Guests can dine at the Eden Restaurant which combines all your senses – tastes, sight and sounds.
“Eden, like so many aspects of Celebrity Edge, represents a unique advance in cruise ship design,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
“It’s an experience that’s multi-faceted and innovative. Connectivity to the ocean is one of the most exciting hallmarks of Edge Class, and with more glass than any other room at sea, Eden embodies that outward-facing concept beautifully.”
“Our search for partners who are as passionate about world-class design as Celebrity led us to the incredibly talented Scott Butler and designer extraordinaire Patricia Urquiola, who offered a fresh perspective and keen eye,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.
“The entire space is magical throughout morning, afternoon, and evening when our guests will experience Eve at Eden, an experience produced by the visionary Variety Worldwide and our very own Cornelius Gallagher. They have all created something magical and magnificent.”
Celebrity Edge will home-port in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, departing for her first sailing on 16 December 2018. Bookings are open at www.celebritycruises.com.au or through your local travel agent. Celebrity Edge will be joined by three sister ships in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
