Unlike any other ship in the history of cruising, EDGE is the first ship literally built from the inside out. Although EDGE’s outer shell was built in a shipyard like all other ships, the inner-workings, interior design, and technology were all built in Miami inside Celebrity’s “Innovation Lab”, which is comprised of a 3D Technology never used before on cruise lines, which makes Celebrity the first and only cruise line to utilize it. The development of Celebrity’s Innovation Lab makes it incredibly convenient for company executives such as Lisa Lutoff-Perlo (Company President) and Richard D. Fain (Chairman and Chief Executive Officer) to see what is going on without having to fly to and from the shipyard in France.

With regards to EDGE’s style, Celebrity sought out three of the Biggest Names in Design in order to bring to life Celebrity’s vision of EDGE… Designers by the way who have no experience whatsoever in the cruise industry, and this was Celebrity’s brilliant plan from the start! Think about it for a moment, Celebrity bringing in three major designers at the top of their game in their respective fields would bring in a fresh new perspective to ship design! It would take EDGE’s design from the traditional Celebrity look to a whole new level of design never seen before in the cruise line industry… Meet The Design Team:



Design icon Nate Berkus is the perfect fit to showcase Celebrity’s cutting-edge innovation and breathtaking design on its newest class of ships. As Design Ambassador, he’ll be bringing his distinctive personality to the launch if Celebrity Edge, hosting a series of Edge Class reveal events. Says Berkus, “I love the idea that we can travel beautifully, and that every moment of the experience-from start to finish—is exceptional. That’s what the Edge Class is all about.


In the port or at sea, Celebrity Edge stands out with its forward-thinking, transformational modern design.” World-renowned for his striking creations like the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai, Tom Wright was the clear choice to lead the charge on designing Edge’s open decks and distinct exterior profile.


London designer Kelly Hoppen took the lead on the design of the ship’s staterooms and suites—bringing her deceptively simple, warm, harmonious design sense into the spaces that serve as guests’ primary vacation retreat. When asked what drew her to the project, Hoppen says “It was exciting to explore the precise balance between the excitement of travel and the comfort of a luxurious personal space.

The most impacted areas of the ship in terms of design would have to be ACCOMMODATIONS and OPEN AREAS; by far based on the information shared last night, these areas are the most transformed areas as compared to (dare I say ANY SHIP) period. For these areas, both Tom Wright and Kelly Hoppen were commissioned to transform the accommodations (Kelly Hoppen) and open areas (Tom Wright). The results were astounding!

It is one thing to transform a room, it’s quite another to make a statement and see it in the results, and that’s what Kelly Hoppen did with EDGE’s staterooms… In her own words,”Where you sleep and wake up whether on land or sea, is the most important part of your day. The environment you’re in can absolutely change the way you feel”.

Internationally-Renowned Architect Tom Wright not only transformed the open areas of the ship, but turned the traditional plans inside out in order to bring to realize his vision of Modern Luxury…
