Meet the Celebrity Edge, the revolutionary new ship that’s poised to change the way even the mega rich experience the world.
Celebrity Cruises, the cruise ship company most known for modern luxury round-the-world cruises on equally jawdropping ships has outdone itself again, this time with a mega ship rumoured to cost US$1 billion (approx MYR4.43 billion) to build.
Meet the Celebrity Edge, the revolutionary new ship that’s poised to change the way even the mega rich experience the world. Born of two whole years of exploration and excitement, every single design element of the Celebrity Edge was taken to the leading edge of possibility, hence its name.
A myriad of unbeatable onboard experiences, beautiful staterooms for unforgettable stays and innovatively designed transformable spaces by designers Nate Berkus and Kelly Hoppen are merely the tip of the hull of this ship.
Here’s what that US$1 billion was transformed into:
The Celebrity Edge
The behemoth slice of luxury on the seas is the first in Celebrity Cruises' new Edge Class of ships designed to leave the future behind. (swipe left for more)
The Magic Carpet
The highlight on board is the Magic Carpet, an extraordinary venue that changes mood, function, and even its location. This incredible engineering feat is the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of 13 stories above sea level, so you can soar over the open ocean. With breathtaking views, a full bar, and space for live music performances, it truly is a destination itself.
The Resort Deck offers endless ways to enjoy the outdoors and connect with the sea. It includes everything from an asymmetrical outward-facing pool deck to a jogging track that winds up, down, and around the new Rooftop Garden—a living urban playscape inspired by childhood playgrounds. Collectively, the Resort Deck is unlike any other outdoor space at sea. Or anywhere else on earth.
High-ceilinged cabanas that face out to sea for private retreats. Two-story martini hot tubs. In-pool loungers and a 25-yard lap pool, the largest in its fleet. Oversized art installations and an abstract mirror installation positioned magnificently above the Pool Bar. On Celebrity Edge, the Pool Deck has been reimagined into a stunning asymmetrical space with a distinct resort-style atmosphere.
On Celebrity Edge, even its most popular Celebrity spots have undergone a transformation. The adults-only Solarium continues the tradition of a covered pool area where adults can unwind in modern luxury style, but now features a 3D art wall to represent the colours and movement of the ocean. It’s the perfect complement to a serene atmosphere where you can restore both your tan and your sanity.
Designed to awaken the inner-child in all of us, the Rooftop Garden is full of unexpected pleasures day and night. Drift away to the rhythm of live musical performances coming down to you from treetop sculptures. Get caught up in a friendly game of giant chess. Catch a movie at A Taste of Film for an interactive fusion of food and film. Your imagination is your guide in this fantastic garden escape.
The Destination Gateway
A new multi-purpose area, The Destination Gateway is a portal that leads to all things global through onshore exploration and onboard enrichment. When not in use as a luxury embarkation station, the space is transformed into an intimate setting for programming centered on destination immersion, shore excursions, and more.
As an Iconic Suite guest, you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world—literally. Positioned high on top of the ship, above the bridge, our new Iconic Suites offer panoramic views from front to back. They’re also the most luxurious and largest in the fleet: Each suite is an opulent 1,892 square feet, not including the outdoor space with private hot tub and stylish furnishings, which adds more than 689 square feet to the grand total.
The Penthouse Suites combine all the innovative amenities of our staterooms with the exceptional perks of being a Suite Class guest, including exclusive access to The Retreat. They also feature a master bedroom, bathroom, and dressing room, living/dining area, guest bedroom and bathroom, terrace, and private hot tub, plus an attentive butler on hand to ensure you never have to lift a finger during your vacation.
The luxury 950-square-foot, split-level Edge Villa residences are another new suite category on Celebrity Edge, and the first of their kind in the fleet. With two stories of windows that look out over the terrace (featuring a three-feet-deep plunge pool and inviting lounge furniture) to the incredible ocean views beyond, it’s an open and airy environment that truly invites the outside in, and vice versa.

Infinite Verandas℠ that take your whole room right to the water’s edge, giving you open air access to the sea whenever you wish.
