On Wednesday evening, I attended a remarkable Celebrity Cruises “reveal” of all things culinary for their new ship, Celebrity Edge, at Pier 36 in NYC.
The Edge will commence sailing in November of this year and the cruise line is cleverly rolling out a series of “reveals” about various aspects of this bold and innovative ship. The work that has gone into so many aspects of the onboard experience is evident and also amazing.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president of the line, and Nate Berkus, the company’s design ambassador for the ship, gave us a presentation about all the dining and beverage options on board the Edge. And there are 29 of them! A dazzling array and a never-before-seen seven specialty restaurants, as well as four main dining rooms and five complimentary venues.
We were then treated to three separate experiences where we could enjoy cocktails and taste some of the food that will be showcased on board. Chefs from the line were creating tasty small bite dishes and bartenders were mixing, shaking and concocting all manner of delish cocktails.
The line-up of dining options is incredible and impressive. The food was fabulous and the design of these spaces is exquisite. Read my full column next week for more details and descriptions of all things culinary – going beyond the Edge!
