The Destination Gateway is a modern, multi-purpose area on Celebrity Edge® that transforms from a luxury embarkation station into an intimate setting for destination enrichment talks and additional programming.
No matter its purpose, The Destination Gateway ensures you experience modern comfort every step of the way—right up to your first step ashore.
When the Magic Carpet® is positioned here, The Destination Gateway serves as a comfortable and welcoming environment that leads to the Edge Launches® for transportation ashore. It immerses you in the destination you’re about to visit with highlights of that port of call displayed on large LCD screens.
When not in use for tendering ashore, The Destination Gateway is a learning and activity center where we’ll host destination enrichment talks, Celebrity Shore Excursion information sessions, and more. You can also host your own meeting, event or celebration for up to 100 guests in this flexible space that brings the outside in with airy outsize hatches.
The area also becomes a stylish extension of the Teen Center when added space is needed for gaming tournaments and other activities. Plus, business groups and corporate incentive groups can utilize this space as a modern, state-of-the-art conference room for meetings and presentations.
From the very beginning of our visionary approach to Edge Class, we wanted every aspect to be a departure from traditional thinking about cruising, even when it came to taking you from ship to shore.
So not only did we create The Destination Gateway—a new multi-purpose area that serves as a luxury embarkation station—but we are also introducing the industry-leading Edge Launches which have been newly reimagined for an improved tender experience.
Featuring bucket seats, air conditioning, large windows for stunning sea-level views, and more space, Edge Launches are designed to get you to your destination in luxurious style. Just like Celebrity Edge.
