Celebrity Cruises has revealed the cutting-edge culinary offerings on its transformative new ship, Celebrity Edge.
The ship will feature 29 palate-pleasing venues, including four main dining restaurants, two exclusive Suite and AquaClass restaurants, seven brand new specialty restaurants, five complimentary dining venues, and 11 bars and lounges. Unique, innovative dining “experiences” for guests range from having a sky-high dinner cantilevered 16 decks above the ocean to an immersive, fusion of technology, animation and dining.
“Once again Celebrity Edge is solidifying, amplifying and putting a superlative on our award-winning culinary experience, allowing our guests to explore the world without ever leaving their table,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “From the amazing destinations we visit globally, to the local ingredients sourced to satisfy the visionary recipes created by our Michelin-starred chef, Cornelius Gallagher, we open up the world through our unique Culinary offerings.”
Brian Abel, Celebrity Cruises’ vice-president of hotel operations, added: “We are known for our world-class culinary offerings—our guests tell us this is what sets us apart and the prestigious awards we win affirm that—and on Celebrity Edge, we’ve combined unique concepts, expansive menus, and incredible design to serve a platter of exciting new dining experiences never before seen at sea.”
NEW DINING EXPERIENCES
Dinner on the Edge and Le Petite Chef are two of the most unique eating experiences aboard Celebrity Edge. Dinner on the Edge gives guests the opportunity to eat on the ship’s Magic Carpet.
Cantilevered from the side of the ship, the Magic Carpet scales the 16-deck ship through the day and evening, stopping at four decks. Dinner on the Edge, which will be offered one to two times per sailing, allows guests to dine on the Magic Carpet while it is suspended at Deck 16.
With Le Petite Chef (see video below), Celebrity offers guests an immersive fusion of entertainment and dining, and a cruise industry first. Created in partnership with TableMation Studios, and featuring Skullmapping’s world famous animated 3D character, Le Petite Chef, this experience has the animated 3D character appear on guests’ plates to prepare the course, which they will soon be enjoying.
