Celebrity Edge

March 14, 2017

 


Bouncin’ in the club where the heat is on
All night on the beach til the break of dawn.
I’m going to Miami, welcome to Miami

What a 12 hours! Yesterday Abigail and I woke up at the crack of dawn (aka pulled an all nighter) to hop in an uber and head to LaGuardia airport. We were met by some of our favorite blogger friends, who we would take a little journey with. We boarded a private plane and were Miami bound (if you couldn’t tell from the Will Smith lyrics… and yes, we sang this the whole trip. I feel like if we didn’t it would have been a real missed opportunity.) 

Celebrity Cruises had a big reveal of “Celebrity Edge” yesterday. Their new ship that will hit the seas in December 2018! As of yesterday they began taking bookings and by the end of the day a ton of rooms were gobbled up. This is the first new cruise ship they have built and designed in over 10 years. They brought on some really incredible people to help create this new incredible ship, like Nate Berkus who signed on as Design Ambassador. 

Since they didn’t actually have the ship, we had to do things a bit differently. We saw a presentation of what the ship, rooms and decks would look like. But, Celebrity Cruises went a step further. I’m talkin’ VR further. We put on some horrifying glasses and giant slipper shoes and stepped into a room and took a virtual reality tour of what the ship will look like. Fully equipped with Sim like characters walking around, swimming, and flirting. Once the glasses were off we even got to walk around some mock ups of the rooms. Think bigger! The beds are now bigger, the bathrooms are bigger (thank God) and they even had infinite verandas. 

The coolest thing though will for sure be the “magic carpet.” A movable deck that will go from floor to floor. The point was to be even closer to the ocean in all ways on the ship. They even face the lounge chairs on the deck out toward the ocean… way better than watching the belly flop competition. 

The ship looked more like a luxurious hotel than a cruise ship. You can see more of the pics here on Travel Weekly’s post. After our tour we got to sit outside and soak up as much sun as possible in their mock cabanas before heading back to this blizzard. We also had some delicious cocktails and apps all day. Plus lots and lots of champagne on the plane! We even had a police escort from the airplane to the ship. Okay, now I’m bragging, but it was a total Beyoncรฉ moment. 

Thank you SO much to Celebrity Cruises for the mini (much needed) escape to Miami! Check our Insta story while it’s still up for even more sneak peeks at the day.

Isn’t she a BEAUT?! Behold the Harmony of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship. After sailing on the Liberty and the Anthem, we couldn’t wait to check out Royal Caribbean‘s newest ship deemed the “Biggest, Baddest, and Sexiest.” We set sail during a glorious sunset in Fort Lauderdale, and spent the first night at sea exploring the ship.

We first found ourselves at an ice skating show called 1887 with no expectations. An hour later we had the chills, and not from being cold. The 1887 ice show is absolutely breathtaking. Gasp-worthy ice skating, enchanting music, and incredible wardrobe. If you book the Harmony cruise, don’t miss this performance. The other show we were able to attend was Grease, which let’s be honest has to be one of the most fun shows ever.

Our dinner at Wonderland was magical to say the least, including an invisible menu that appears with the stroke of a paintbrush. We never made it to this restaurant while on the Anthem, so we’re glad they kept it onboard the Harmony. The decor is right up our alley!

Now let’s get to the attractions, see that terrifying blue slide in photo # 3? That’a a TEN-STORY SLIDE. We didn’t make the time to give it a go, but that’s also probably because we’re wusses. We did however ride the carousel… twice. There’s endless activities, so check out what else they have to offer HERE.

Here is a peek into our adventure with Royal Caribbean. We’ve been sailing on the Liberty of the Seas ship since Saturday when we set off to Bermuda. Of course, we will be posting on our YouTube channel this Thursday and next Thursday, for an even more flavorful taste of our time at Sea, so stay tuned.
