There's a great new way to explore one of the world's top cruise ships.
With its launch in December 2019, Celebrity Edge represented a monumental leap forward in cruise ship design and innovation - but only a select few have been able to experience the ship for themselves. Now, Celebrity Cruises is allowing prospective guests the opportunity to see its most technologically advanced ship in the most technologically advanced way - with the launch of the Celebrity Edge Access Tour app.
Filmed with more than 100 infrared cameras in a custom-built studio, the first-ever augmented reality ship tour is an immersive and intimate view of Celebrity Edge narrated with fascinating insights by Richard D. Fain, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Chairman and CEO, and Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity Cruises President and CEO. The tour uses binaural audio, soundscaping, and 3-D augmented reality technology to give guests the feeling of a private, behind-the-scenes tour hosted by the visionaries behind this groundbreaking new ship.
Previously only available onboard Celebrity Edge, the Access Tour app is free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Anyone can now uncover the full story of how the Best New Ship came to be using technology that pushes boundaries - for a ship that ignores them.
Celebrity Cruises' iconic "X" is the mark of modern luxury, with its cool, contemporary design and warm spaces; dining experiences where the design of the venues is as important as the cuisine; and the amazing service that only Celebrity can provide, all created to provide an unmatchable experience for vacationers' precious time. Celebrity Cruises' 13 ships offer modern luxury vacations visiting all seven continents. Celebrity also presents incredible Cruisetour experiences in Alaska and Canada. Celebrity is one of six cruise brands operated by global cruise vacation company Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
