Solarium at night   Nice being trusted with towels and not worrying about being possibility of being charge $25 for one...

Just got done dining at Eden Restaurant. Was a very interesting meal to say the least, in a good way. Eden Restaurant is located on the lower level of Eden. Access is via set of stairs from deck

Today's port of call is Grand Cayman. One of the nice features of Edge is the use of the Magic Carpet as a tender platform and ship has some of the life boats configured as tenders. These tenders have

Wow!  Just caught up now as I haven't logged in since last night!  I love this ship already and you just started this blog.  The Edge is beautiful!  I actually have not researched this ship at all so this is the first time I am seeing pics of it.

The suites waiting area already sealed the deal for me.  Why won't this ship sail North America in the summer when I can actually sail her?  I will have to settle for living vicariously through your blog.  Keep the pics coming @CGTLH!

Quick visit up to The Retreat sundeck

One unique thing is the Edge Villa guests have direct access to The Retreat sundeck from their room. Doors on the left side I'm going to assume lead to a locked door to the Villa.

Also a bar up here, just didn't get the chance to take a picture.

Could almost call this a sneak peek at the future of the Royal app. This is the Celebrity version.

Notice the three icons. Fork and Knife, Bed, and door knob.

Hitting the "Fork and Knife" brings you to the well known screen showing what dining venues are open, menus, and what not.

"Bed" icon brings up room control options, defaulting to the television tab.

Room tab brings up various room controls

Hitting "see all" dropdown next to lights gives granular on/off control of the various room lights.

Finally the "Door knob" icon. The initial setup requires some authentication. Once authenticated no need to do anything more other than have the app open.

But do all the room control features work?  That's how you know they have a different IT department than Royal. 

Work and work well are two different things. TV controls seem to work fine. Room controls are a random story.

Some nice touches

Pizza is made with fresh dough

For people that have allergy or dietary concerns it seems everything has a tag listing the key concerns. This one for example would indicate "gluten free"

 

I always forgot about the pizza station in the Ocean view café since it is in the aft of the dining area separated from everything else.  I never got around to trying it.

They are building four other sister ships so maybe one of them will eventually sail in the summer in the Caribbean.

For the random post of the night... Elevators!

It is nice knowing clearly what elevator is doing what. On the call button panel pressing up causes the up arrow to outline in green, going down red. When the elevator arrives it is clear as day what direction it is going.

Inside the elevator the screen clearly shows what floors have been selected. (I'm looking at you blue outlined buttons that just get brighter when pressed)

Excited to follow along as you don't see many reviews from Celebrity...and we can switch over at same/comparable c&a level.  Enjoy your cruise!  Ship looks beautiful.  On our last couple cruises, we kept seeing her (i.e. same ports)

Thanks! Some what the reason why I'm blogging here. Obviously over on that other site you'll find live blogs in the appropriate section. Big difficulty is finding a review from a Royal loyalist.

Ship decor is very nice. Has a very modern vibe to the decor.

I do feel odd getting the occasional "Welcome Back" comment when they see Elite on the card. Heck when meeting the Butler it was entertaining explaining being a 0 point Elite, first time sailing their Suite class and first time on Celebrity.

Good thing I stumbled upon this right away. Just happened to be looking for a table and wound up right outside that section. Was getting up and head back toward the main area when the dough balls caught my eye.
