Watch: Celebrity Edge's Magic Carpet

By The Maritime Executive 01-06-2019 02:20:58

Perched on the starboard side of the ship, Magic Carpet is the most distinctive feature of Celebrity Edge. Offering open-air panoramic views, it is the world’s first cantilevered venue at sea to move 15 decks.

Celebrity Edge is designed to give passengers a greater connection to the ocean with her outward-facing design.

Inaugurated in December 2018, the 2,900-passenger vessel is the Celebrity Cruises' first new ship in six years and first new ship series in more than a decade. She is the first of four vessels from Celebrity Cruises’ Edge Class and will be joined by her sister ship, Celebrity Apex, in 2020. The next two ships will follow in 2021 and 2022.

Videos showing the vessel from design to inauguration can be viewed here.
