Spend days afloat relaxing on the Pool Deck and taking a dip in the 25-yard lap pool. Escape to the private utopia of The Retreat or reserve an exclusive cabana with outward-facing views. The Rooftop Garden is the perfect setting to enjoy music, movies, and alfresco dining. The modern and luxurious staterooms and suites showcase pioneering features such as infinite balconies and split-level areas.

The dining experiences onboard Celebrity Edge tempt you with a world of flavours. Dine at the Rooftop Garden Grill and taste a wide range of international cuisine from the a la carte menu.

The gateway to Mount Etna, Messina, is the third-largest port in Sicily. This city — which was used to film part of the film 'The Godfather' — is famous for its museums and architectural beauty. Drive up the side of nearby Mount Etna on a day trip or wander around the many shops along Messina's wide boulevards to look at Sicilian pottery and art pieces. Black volcanic glass from Mount Etna features heavily in Sicilian jewellery and makes a great souvenir. Visit Norman Messina Cathedral to see its beautiful, 15th-century windows and astronomical clock tower, before walking by the stunning marble fountains — Fontana di Orione and Neptune Fountain — which are decorated with mythical creatures and gods. Make sure to dine on locally-inspired swordfish, pasta and pizza dishes complemented by rich Sicilian wine at a trattoria during your time here, too.
