Here are a few noted regarding our cruise.
The ship is still new and in immaculate condition. We were told that our cruise was half full and it felt like it. No waiting for elevators or lines for dining.
Celebrity has taken hygiene to a new level. There are cleaners everywhere sanitizing handrails, door buttons, elevators, tables/chairs etc.. They even have cleaners
stationed outside the public "facilities" and they sanitize between guests!
Our check-in was a breeze. We got in the Retreat line at 12:05 and were seated in Luminae at 12:45.
We ate dinner at three specialty restaurants. The Steakhouse was fine but the extra fee was not worth it. Raw on 5 was good; the seafood tower was exceptional.
Our favorite was Eden, hands down. A unique menu and you can watch the "artists" prepare/assemble each course.
Luminae was outstanding. Marco and his team are very professional and will do anything to make your dining experience special. One night, my wife didn't
fancy anything on the menu and when she mentioned this to the waiter Jose, he immediately rattled off several dishes not listed. She chose the Filet Mignon
and it rivalled the same meal at the expensive Steakhouse!
The shows were well done though playing to a quarter filled theater must be tough, especially for the comedian and the illusionist.
The staff were all genuinely happy to have us onboard: being around so many smiling faces is contagious.
Due to a foot injury I picked up a week prior to the cruise, we didn't get off at any of the 3 ports. We did hear that most things were closed in Nassau.
Comments and observations.
The Edge's Martini Bar sadly does not have the same vibrant and boisterous atmosphere we have enjoyed on the S class ships.
No bar service in the theater before the shows, we quickly learned to BYOD.
Very little shaded areas on the pool deck, including the Retreat pool area.
Our intent on this cruise was to relax and enjoy some pampering; the Edge met all our expectations.
