Celebrity Edge Infinite Veranda Stateroom Review

Our Celebrity Edge Infinite Veranda Review details all of the amenities and features in this new stateroom category with plenty of photos.

Among the new innovations on Celebrity Edge is the newly re-conceptualized verandas. Instead of a standard balcony stateroom, the ship launched with over 500 Infinite Veranda cabins. This new design is aimed at getting cruisers closer to the water by essentially turning the entire room into a balcony with the push of a button. Along with increasing the size of the room by over 20%, these rooms also have new design elements and technological enhancements. After sailing on a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise, we are back with our honest Celebrity Edge Infinite Veranda review.

Inside the Infinite Veranda Stateroom

We booked an infinite veranda stateroom on Deck 6 for Celebrity Edge before the deck plans were even available. Prior to our sail date, we were notified that our stateroom was a partially obstructed view.

In hindsight, we should have contacted Celebrity Cruises to request an alternate room as we were not aware that the room was obstructed when booking. In the end, this limited viewpoint did not detract from our overall vacation experience.

Upon entering our infinite veranda cabin, we found the furnishings and décor to be sleek and modern. It had a subdued color scheme with pops of color and pattern to give it a chic and fun appeal. In fact, the entire ship has a Miami Beach luxury resort feel. 

At first glance, we did not really feel the 23% increase in cabin size when compared to the Solstice class. Even though, we had just sailed on Celebrity Eclipse 7 months prior.  

Celebrity Cruises website states that this room category ranges in size 243-368 square feet.

The Layout of the Infinite Veranda Stateroom

Over the course of the week, we began to realize where all that extra space was hiding.  

We appreciated the extra storage and counter space. The loveseat and desk area also felt larger. However, you might not feel the difference from a maneuverability standpoint.

Our room was set up with the bed closer to the door, while the sofa and desk were closer to the balcony. We actually prefer this layout.

All of the Infinite Veranda rooms on Celebrity Edge are fitted with a king bed featuring Celebrity eXhale bedding and cashmere mattresses. These beds are a serious upgrade from the typical cruise ship cabin and a welcomed bonus in terms of comfort.

The Infinite Veranda

To be honest, we were not a fan of this new veranda. For us, the design seemed to limit our connection to the ocean. The full walls on each side of the balcony made it feel more closed off. While some might find this ideal from a privacy standpoint, we thought it limited our view.

With the balcony “down”, you do get ocean breezes. But, it just felt like a big window instead of a veranda. This set-up does give the entire room a more open feel, as it extends the length of the cabin. Though, the set-up is not ideal if one member wants to sneak out on the balcony in the morning while others are still sleeping.

We really did not end up using this feature much. For the most part, we made use of these additional seats for some of our towel animals.

In the end, we give Celebrity Cruises credit for trying to push the limits in design, but some things are just better off in their original format. We definitely prefer a traditional balcony when compared to the new infinite veranda.

The Bathrooms in the Infinite Veranda Stateroom

For once, a cruise ship bathroom actually felt like something you would find on land! It was a somewhat traditional but roomier layout, with a curved shower that was larger than a traditional cabin shower. 

The sink and vanity area had plenty of storage and was longer as well which made getting ready in the mornings easier. The bath products were also well stocked and convenient.

Again, the color palette and design of the bathroom was very modern and elegant. The bathrooms in the Celebrity Edge cabins definitely get a big thumbs up.

The Technology in Celebrity Edge Staterooms

Where the infinite veranda was a letdown, the technology upgrades were better than expected. There were several power and USB outlets in the room. There were outlets near the bed which were great for charging phones at night. On the desk, there was an outlet hub, with USB, US, and European outlets. 

The digital display screen near the door worked efficiently. It could be used to adjust the lights, the room temperature, and to open the blinds on the infinite veranda.

The Celebrity smartphone app also functioned without hiccups. We were able to access our stateroom door with a swipe of our device as well as control the other in-room features. Controlling the lighting and blinds without having to get out of bed in the morning was great, even if it made us a bit lazy.

Of course, the app also included the typical features like show times, your daily schedule, and the ability to make reservations.

Recap of Celebrity Edge Infinite Veranda Review

Overall, our week-long cruise in the Celebrity Edge Infinite Veranda was comfortable and a step above the fleet’s standard balcony rooms.

Once we uncovered some of the “hidden” storage areas, we had no problems storing all of our clothes and other belongings nicely in the room. The bed and furniture were functional, stylish, and comfortable, especially after our long days ashore. The upgrade in bathroom size was also another perk of this cabin.

If you are looking for a more open concept to your room, the infinite veranda might be a nice fit for you. Personally, we would opt for a traditional balcony in the future though given the more restricted nature of the actual “balcony” component in this stateroom category.

  1. What is the Square footage of state room 8249.

    Hi currently on Celebrity Edge and we are 3 days in and my Infinity balcony window is disabled by Captain. We are in Toulon at present weather is dry with no wind and Captain has closed our window. I do understand safety but why is my window always disabled. Always book balconies but this feature so far just feels like a big window.

    Like the choice of four main dining rooms, the French being my favorite and Eden is a welcome respite during the day. Sorry to see the Magic Carpet was not used for tendering and I am disappointed to see so much forward space an viewing limited only to Retreat passengers. Sadly the Infinite Veranda is a deal breaker for me and a definite step in the wrong direction.

    I did not like the infinite veranda at all. If one person wanted to be on the balcony and the other person wanted to be in AC comfort, this was impossible to achieve because the accordion door has gaps that let humid air into the room. Will be downgrading room category to get a “normal” balcony on future Edge and Apex cruises.

      Hi, we are looking into a cruise on the Edge for 2021 and looking into the Infinite Veranda but just read your comment and have second thoughts now. Does the “normal” balcony have a circular window or a slider like Solstice class ships?

    I have been cruising for over 34 years edge veranda was a huge disappointment felt closed off more than a sunny balcony should feel

    I am booked in an infinite “veranda” cabin on the Celebrity Apex and I’m fairly sure that I won’t enjoy it as much as a real veranda. I agree with you that it is really a big window, not a veranda.

      Let us know your review when you return. Have a great cruise, Celebrity Edge is a fantastic cruise ship!

    Much prefer a “real balcony”! Sailed on the Edge. Took a while to figure out how everything worked. No one offered to show us. If you open the “window” the air conditioning goes off! The artwork and the 2 story walking area were great! Eden is beautiful! Trying a short cruise next year on the Apex. Weren’t offered the “always “ freebies! Poor advertising! We are Elite members.

    the infinite veranda is a joke the person who designed this should have to spend a week in the room it is a glorified expensive port hole soon as we got in the room we wanted to get off the ship we complained so much that celebrity gave us a suite but if you are a person who wants to sit outside on your balcony and read a book you are going to be disappointed plus celebrity must think everybody packs with 2 shirts and 2 pairs of pants the closet is another joke the room is a 6th floor carnival inside room

    Not impressed with 1/2 a window.
    Will NOT be booking this ship.
    The word Balcony should be removed.
