Celebrity Cruises is planning to launch its new Celebrity Edge next year, with a major new offering: Eden, a three-deck venue that’s not like anything else at sea.
Eden, which includes almost 7,000 square feet of glass, stands at 368,640 cubic feet, bigger than the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, with a total of 12,650 square feet of space.
The project is the product of a partnership including designers Patricia Urquiola and Scott Butler of Wilson Butler Architects, along with Queen of the Night creators Variety Worldwide.
“Eden, like so many aspects of Celebrity Edge, represents a unique advance in cruise ship design,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “It’s an experience that’s multi-faceted and innovative. Connectivity to the ocean is one of the most exciting hallmarks of Edge Class, and with more glass than any other room at sea, Eden embodies that outward-facing concept beautifully.”
By day, Eden is a “chilldful” escape for yoga or coffee, the company said, while in the afternoon it hosts enrichment seminars and tasting events. By night, the space becomes Eve at Eden, a fusion of performance art, culinary exploration and nightlife, led by the Eden Restaurant.
After dinner, guests are prompted to visit the Tree of Life, along with the Eden Bar.
“Our search for partners who are as passionate about world-class design as Celebrity led us to the incredibly talented Scott Butler and designer extraordinaire Patricia Urquiola, who offered a fresh perspective and keen eye,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “The entire space is magical throughout morning, afternoon, and evening when our guests will experience Eve at Eden, an experience produced by the visionary Variety Worldwide and our very own Cornelius Gallagher. They have all created something magical and magnificent.”
