Australian Traveller

Your perfect sea-day itinerary

On Celebrity Edge, onboard experience­s are just as wonderFULL as the destinatio­ns visited.

-

WITH AN endless array of a ractions, production­s, treatments and dining experience­s on offer, you can tailor each day to suit your desires. Our suggestion?

Morning:

KICKSTART YOUR HEART with a Peloton class or ease into your morning with a gentle yoga session, designed in collaborat­ion with Women in Wellness. The first-at-sea program brings together some of the wellness world’s leading minds and practition­ers to curate a world of treatments, wellness activation­s and classes.

Worked up an appetite? Be sure to swing past THE SPA CAFE for an exclusive goop smoothie, designed by goop founder and CEO, Gwyneth Paltrow, or dine at BLU. Exclusive – and compliment­ary – for AquaClass guests, Blu features spa-inspired cuisine focusing on fresh, clean ingredient­s, with all menu items designed by Michelin-star chef, Cornelius Gallagher.

Soak in style at the adults-only SOLARIUM or give in to the allure of the ship’s two-storey martini hot tubs or pools – all of which are heated from the ship’s engines. And exhale...

Afternoon:

TREAT YOURSELF to a destinatio­n-inspired spa treatment that’s as unique as the places you’ll visit. Whether you’re into Zero Gravity Immersion Massages, Thousand Flower Detox Wraps or prefer a more traditiona­l treatment unique to your destinatio­n, you’ll leave THE SPA feeling refreshed and relaxed.

For guests of THE RETREAT, it’s time to take a lunchtime seat at LUMINAE, but all other guests will have to make the difficult choice between 28 other restaurant­s, bars and lounges. All four dining rooms: NORMANDIE, TUSCAN, COSMOPOLIT­AN and CYPRUS feature a selection of exclusive, regionally inspired dishes and drinks, as well as a regular menu that changes daily.

Spend your a ernoon honing your creativity at THE CLUB. During the sunlight hours the nightclub space hosts Art Hour, as well as the Rec Room series, which features archery, retro gaming and interactiv­e game shows.

Evening:

ENJOY a pre-dinner artisanal cocktail – as well as an extraordin­ary sensory experience – at EDEN, where the interior design is as sublime as the panoramic ocean views. Noted for its spontaneou­s, immersive performanc­es, you can do as much, or as li le, as you like here. Activities include hands-on cooking classes and wine tastings and pairing seminars held by Celebrity Edge’s master sommeliers.

Get ready for an al fresco dining experience with a difference by booking DINNER ON THE EDGE. It’s a culinary journey onboard the Magic Carpet that will not only satisfy your tastebuds, but also your sense of wonder. Fun fact: Celebrity Cruises sources 90 per cent of wild-caught seafood and 75 per cent of farmed seafood from certified sustainabl­e sources – a first for the cruise industry.

Indulged in a li le too much dessert? Take a self-guided art tour around the ship to view more than 4,000 pieces of curated artworks ranging from modern to historical, sculptures, murals, installati­ons and living art. Once you’ve caught your breath, it’s time to make a choice. Will you enjoy one of the award-winning production­s performed nightly at THE THEATRE, or retreat to the urban playscape that is the ROOFTOP GARDEN? Up here, you can catch a movie, listen – or dance to – live music, or simply lie back and gaze up at the stars as you glide through the sea.
