Revolutionary thinking from celebrated visionaries

Edge Class pushes the boundaries of cruise ship architecture from bow to stern, and everywhere in between. From urban condo-inspired accommodations to the industry-first Magic Carpet, we’ve reinvented what’s possible on a Celebrity Cruises vacation.

We also carefully selected a team of the world’s best designers, based on their portfolios as well as their inexperience with cruise ships and cruising.

That’s right. We sought out designers who were new to the cruise industry, because we wanted to ensure every aspect of Celebrity Edge would be a departure from traditional thinking about cruising. We wanted visionaries who would bring a completely fresh perspective to ship design—and we got exactly that with our team of renowned designers.

They do this in so many unique ways, from their elegant interpretation of a pendulum in the main dining atrium, to the ship’s bare bones they artfully left exposed. Discover the incredible spaces of the Grand Plaza that make it the place to see and be seen.
