For Celebrity Cruises, 2018 has ended on a high note, with the arrival of the Celebrity Edge at Port Everglades’ Terminal 25 (T25) in Hollywood, FL in late November. Along with being the latest addition to Celebrity Cruises’ fleet in six years, the Celebrity Edge is bringing innovative technology on the high seas and taking guest experiences to an immersive level.
One eye-catching engineering feat is the Magic Carpet, a cantilevered venue being tangerine in color and size of a tennis court. When positioned along various deck levels, the Magic Carpet can become an exclusive restaurant or an open-air expansion of the ship’s main pool area or a component to the ship’s Destination Gateway, a luxury embarkation station for boarding the adjacent Edge Launches departure vessels.
Dining gets illuminated as well. Inside Le Grand Bistro, one of the ship’s 29 food and beverage offerings that reflects a French bistro, passengers will be entertained by “Le Petit Chef and Friends,” an animated tabletop 4D presentation. Then there’s Eden, an outward facing space is described as being part culinary experience, part performance venue.
