Celebrity Cruises Reveals Eden

Celebrity Cruise Line recently revealed Eden, a combination lounge, dining and entertainment area aboard their new Edge-class ship. To me, I think of Eden as a garden paradise anchored in the center by The Tree-of-Life. From what I have seen and read thus far, Celebrity designers have taken that same association and developed it even further creating an amazing architectural wonder.

Spanning three decks at the aft of the ship, this multi-use space is clearly nature-themed… there’s even a living tree in the dining area (a feature of Celebrity's Solstice class ships)!  However, with almost 7,000 square feet of glass that reaches 32 feet high, one cannot ignore the connectivity to the ocean, and isn’t that what people want when vacationing at sea?

The mood, the feel, the function of Eden changes throughout the day. In the morning, Eden is a serene, relaxing spot. Some may want to participate in an early morning yoga class while others will find it a great place to contemplate the day ahead, gazing at the sea with a cup of coffee.

Later in the day one can escape from the fiery sun and busy pool deck for a wine demonstration, hands-on enrichment seminar, or tastings. I would start with that, then search out a perfect spot to curl up with a good book. The afternoon also features performances from sitar players to aerialists.

Guests looking for a unique dining experience will find it at the restaurant in Eden where amazing dishes are prepared right in front of them. Throughout the meal, costumed performers called “Edenists” move freely between tables.

The Eden Bar is a “go-to” place for after dinner drinks. Here, the Library of Plants towers 18 feet above Eden Bar, offering its bounty of fresh ingredients and garnishes for hand-crafted, artisanal cocktails.

Are you ready to experience Eden for yourself? CelebrityEdge will homeport in Fort Lauderdale, FL., making her first sailing December 16, 2018. She will offer two 7-night itineraries: an eastern and a western Caribbean cruise.
