One of the quite innovative features of the Celebrity Edge is also its embarkation and disembarkation area.

Some information on the price of this cruise: for an Aqua Class cabin (with access to the spa included, as well as its private “healthy” restaurant) and with a drinks package included (promotion of the moment), the price per night and per person was approximately $ 300 (250 €).
