The Edge is the first in a new class for Celebrity and is full of firsts. It has a 90-ton platform that travels up and down one side of the ship. At water level it serves as an enhanced boarding area for tender departures. Edge is also the first ocean ship to incorporate balconies structurally within cabins on some decks. The ship's interior was rendered in a light, contemporary way by several top designers. It carries 2,918 passengers.
