Celebrity Edge: Eden Revealed

June 28, 2017

.

Eden is an evolution of Celebrity’s Sky and Observation lounges, with an added, garden-like feel. Since a closer connection to the sea is one of Celebrity Edge’s guiding principles, the space is surrounded in glass.

Eden is a triple-deck, glass-enclosed lounge/restaurant with programming that changes throughout the day from chill, to playful, to sinful, is the latest exciting reveal for Celebrity Edge.

Spanning Decks 4, 5 and 6 aft and measuring 368,640 cubic feet, Eden melds gastronomic exploration with performance art and lush nature—all spiraled into one gasp-worthy space.

‘We thought we’d have some fun,’ Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and ceo, Celebrity Cruises, told Seatrade Cruise News. ‘It starts out as a chillful, beautiful, pure place. You can go in the morning and sit in a swing and hear a sitar. There’s alfresco dining on both sides. Then it starts transforming, getting a little more playful during the day. It will have pop-up entertainment, lectures, culinary and wine tastings. You can also get a great, quick, light lunch.’

After dark, though, ‘As in Eden, after Eve took a bite out of the apple, it got a bit sinful.’

Patrons can come for a set, five-course dinner or drinks. At the end of the night there will be a ‘surprise, crescendo experience,’ Lutoff-Perlo said.

A 90-meter ramp provides panoramic views, both inward and outward.

World-renowned designer Patricia Urquiola, a Spaniard resident who creates unconventional, experimental furniture and spectacular hotel interiors dreamed up Eden’s towering ‘Library of Plants,’ the hanging plant pillars and distinctive furniture.

Also, Variety Worldwide, the nightlife impresarios behind Queen of the Night—a fusion of dance, music, fashion, circus, culinary delights and theater—created an experience that will transform Eden after dark with some edgy elements.

Malcolm says: call me sceptical but i’m not over excited about ‘Eden’ (or the ‘Magic Carpet’ for that matter).

Eden looks like a nice lounge with sea views, some food, some plants and some entertainment.  However that’s hardly innovative. In fact it reminds me of RCI’s ‘Quantum’ class 360 Degree lounge, not surprising as RCI own Celebrity.

Observation lounges and winter-gardens, on-board ships, must date back some 70 years or more.

I rather suspicious that the video needs 7 minutes to explain what it all means and just how good it is. The best ideas are often simple ones!

I would have thought that Celebrity passengers primarily want good food and service, rather than gimmicks.

In fairness,  I was not impressed with the idea of Oasis’s ‘Central Park’ when I first read about it. It sounded like a very big ‘gimmick’ to me. However when I actually saw and experienced it, I realised what a lovely space it was.

The moral of this story is that I don’t always know what I’m talking about. I should give Celebrity the benefit of the doubt and wait and see.
