Scott Butler, AIA, Founding Partner, Wilson Butler Architects, said:
“When designing The Meeting Place we asked ourselves what would be more appealing; being subjected to lectures in a conference room, or socializing with colleagues in a hip lounge?’ The latter seemed obvious. Thus the flexibility and functionality of a ‘state of the art’ meeting space was designed for pleasure first”
“The word that defines The Meeting Place is ‘connected’. It facilitates guests getting connected to one another; to the latest technology and to the greatest new ideas. It also happens to connect to other venues on the ship that vastly expand the opportunities for groups.”
Celebrity Edge is a brand new class vessel currently under construction by the STX France shipyard. Once completed the impressive vessel will be 117,000 gross tons and carrying 2,900 passengers at double occupancy.
