Southampton - Embark Celebrity Edge
Today you’ll embark Celebrity Edge in Southampton for your Mediterranean cruise.
Relax on Celebrity Edge’s rooftop garden, with verdant greenery and natural sculptures that provide a little oasis at sea. During the day the garden plays host to yoga and as night descends, music and film evenings take place. There’s even a grill kitchen, serving up delicious burgers. On the roof deck you’ll also find a 25 yard pool, martini glass-shaped hot tubs, and an adults-only solarium.
Tucked in a corner of Northeast Spain, Bilbao is nestled within lush rolling hills and replete with park and plazas. Fantastic for foodies, art-lovers and culture vultures, Bilbao is a charming city with much to offer. Visit the glittering Guggenheim; gorge on pintxos, the Basque version of tapas and stroll Casco Viejo, the oldest streets of the city.
La Coruna is at the site of the ancient Tower of Hercules lighthouse, which has been operating since the second-century AD. The city is known for its characteristic galerías, or glazed window balconies. The promenade, one of the longest in Europe, runs along the city’s headland and passes many of its most exciting sights.
Catch a movie at ‘A Taste of Film’ or dance the night away to a live band; this ship holds all the facilities and entertainment options you’d expect from Celebrity Cruises, along with a few added extras. Plus, on the pool deck – a short distance from the charming Retreat Lounge – you’ll find over-sized art installations that add to the ship’s sophisticated air.
The pint-sized city of Lisbon is set across seven hills and effortlessly blends traditional and contemporary culture. Get lost in the narrow cobbled alleyways of the Alfama district with its colourful buildings and beautiful views. Or explore further afield – there are fantastic beaches within easy reach - thanks to the trams that criss-cross this charming city.
This British-owned territory is full of British quirks - afternoon tea, fish and chips and traditional pubs – and has a long and fascinating history due to its strategic position between Africa and Europe. Explore its iconic rock and watch out for the cheeky Barbary macaques.
Enjoy “dinner on the edge” when evening descends, tucking into sumptuous cuisine on the Magic Carpet, with views across the ocean. Celebrity Edge boats a range of eateries and restaurants to suit all tastes, with efficient and friendly service, along with meals prepared from the freshest ingredients.
Walk the narrow, cobbled streets of the Old Town, visit the ancient Arab Baths or simply soak up the rays on the sun-drenched city beach. As day stretches into night, take a stroll along the Passeig d’es Born boulevard and see the honey-hued La Seu Cathedral, before heading to a tapas bar to enjoy plates of spicy albondigas and patatas bravas washed down with jugs of icy sangria.
Whether you want to clear your mind, fine-tune your body or reinvigorate your spirit - or all of the above - The Spa on Celebrity Edge is the unparalleled escape you deserve. The Spa elevates "me time" to a fine art, its design rivals any of the best spas in the world, and its nature-inspired approach to wellness includes an array of spa, beauty, and fitness experiences never before offered at sea.
