Celebrity Edge, The Pool Bar

Revolutionary on every level, Celebrity Edge® is the ship that’s setting a new standard of luxury and innovation at sea. Through using the latest 3-D technology, we’ve fine-tuned every detail of the ship’s design like never before. Not to mention by teaming up with some of the world’s best designers.

To ensure every aspect of Celebrity Edge® is distinct from traditional cruise ship design, we sought out designers that were new to the cruise industry. Enter Kelly Hoppen, Tom Wright, and Nate Berkus: the design visionaries behind Celebrity Edge®. From the incredible Magic Carpet – the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of 13 storeys above sea level – to the private plunge pools in our new Edge® Villas.

Meet the designers behind Celebrity Edge®: the ship designed to leave the future behind.


Multi-award-winning Kelly Hoppen MBE

We knew that working with her and her style was exactly what we needed to make a bold, modern luxury statement.

Kelly Hoppen is the designer behind Celebrity Edge’s® spectacular new accommodations, including the brand new Iconic Suites, Edge® Villas, and the most transformational aspect of our stateroom design: the Edge® Stateroom with Infinite Balcony. Not to mention Kelly was also at the forefront of creating The Retreat. A luxurious, private space comprising indoor and outdoor areas. Exclusively for Suite Class guests.


Internationally acclaimed architect Tom Wright of WKK

Tom Wright has over 30 years experience in design, and in 2013 set up WKK– an architectural practice dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in design from sketch to reality. With Tom’s vision, we transformed outdoor spaces into serene outward-facing sanctuaries that showcase endless ocean views and the extraordinary places we visit. Each space is designed to inspire you and make you feel more connected to the sea and the world around you.

Tom Wright is the designer behind The Resort Deck. An array of inspirational spaces on Deck 14 including: the Rooftop Garden, the Pool Deck, the Pool Bar, and the indoor adults-only Solarium. The Resort Deck is the new space where you’ll find endless ways to enjoy the outdoors and connect with the sea.

Wright has also designed the revolutionary Magic Carpet - the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform. Majestically situated on the starboard side of Celebrity Edge®, it is designed with comfortable seating, a full bar, and space for live music performances – so it truly is a destination itself. This spectacular space opens to several decks and transforms into a new and exciting venue depending on where it’s positioned.
