You can finally take a “Magic Carpet Ride” when you board your Celebrity Edge cruise ship. – Debuting December 2018.
What is The Magic Carpet? “Be one with the Sea” quoted by Richard Fain, CEO And Chairman of RCCL. The Magic Carpet is a movable deck cantilevered on her starboard side. The Magic Carpet will be poised on Deck 2 as “Destination Gateway” and acts as a disembarkation platform for tender ports of call. Celebrity also announced their all-new tenders called “Launches”. These launches will feature padded seating and will be air conditioned. There will be 8 launches each carrying 182 passengers. “Destination Gateway”, will be a multipurpose area. When it is docked on Deck 2 for example in the evenings it could serve as “Game-On” with interactive games for adults and children alike. It will also be used for meeting space and art auctions as well as “Trunk Shows” like a Bazaar from a specific port of call. There will be “all sorts of technology”. When docked on Deck 5, the Magic Carpet will serve as a lounge destination and dining venue ($). Rumored is this will also be an extension of a Raw Bar., and we can’t wait! When the Magic Carpet climbs up to Deck 16 it will be a lounge as well as offerring,”Dining on the Edge” ($). When stationed on Deck 14, The Magic Carpet will be an extension of the pool deck and be the spot for happy hours, late night bites and a specialty restaurant that will alternate theme menus like Lobster Bakes and Bubbles and BBQ ($). This all goes back to,”Be One With the Sea”, Richard Fain.
