Celebrity Edge Educational!
A couple of members of staff were lucky enough to be invited to experience the brand new Celebrity Edge cruise ship on an educational trip. We’ve rounded up all the best bits for you to experience it for yourself!
The ship really stands out when you arrive at the port. As soon as you step on board, the entire design is modern with light colours and interesting designs on the walls around the ship. It’s very spacious and each area has a different feel. Paula, our Head of Retail said: “WOW, what can I say. I’ve travelled on a Celebrity ship previously which was fab, but this one takes it to a new level!”.
With over 29 restaurants and bars to choose from, you won’t go hungry. The food had enough choice, quality, and taste to suit any food lover and it was all five-star quality. Steve, our Shaftesbury Branch Manager said: “The food is some of the best I’ve ever eaten. In the main buffet restaurants there is an INCREDIBLE amount of variety.”
During the day you had the choice of sunbathing, swimming in the two pools (one covered and one outside), laser maze (which is a challenge to see who can go through a maze at the quickest time without hitting the UV lights), and a whole host of activities that won’t let you get bored on a day at sea. Alternatively, you can even simply relax in the spa! The rooms include: sea salt therapy, crystal healing, wet steam room, and even a Turkish hammam.
Evening entertainment on board is fantastic and performers wander round the lounge to encourage people to get into the show. Becky from our Cruise Call Centre said: “We saw a production of Midsummer Night’s Dream which was very good with incredible acrobatics. The graphics and technology available on the ship makes the entertainment even more stunning than most other ships”. However, it’s not just spectacular shows on board, there is other entertainment such as silent discos, comedians, and live bands.
Claire, our Regional Sales Manager for Tees and Wear said: “For me, Celebrity is five-star like no other cruise I have experienced. I couldn't fault anything on the ship and would definitely cruise myself with them. If you’re looking for luxury, five-star service and food, with the most up-to-date technology and entertainment; then this is the cruise for you.”
