Nate Berkus, Kelly Hoppen and Tom Wright brought to the luxurious world of yachts, an exclusive and luxurious vessel dubbed as Celebrity Edge Cruise Ship. This mega-vessel is set to break major boundaries in the industry due to its technological and revolutionary character as well as being a $5 Billion Class heavy hitter.
Renowned interior design and TV personality, Nate Berkus is the design ambassador for Celebrity Edge, the new ship of the cruise line. The fact that the Berkus does not possess as much experience as perhaps a luxury yacht designer, it became an advantage in order to create something completely different from the conventional designs, since the American designer does have an extensive background in multiple areas, as he explains “They didn’t want anyone who only worked in cruises in order to get a totally different point of view. The power of design was hugely important.”

Kelly Hoppen, another extremely famous and beloved interior designer, joined the project, and although she designed a marina’s worth of private yachts, the influential designer had never worked on a cruise ship for over 2000 guests. In order to create magnificent interiors, she resorted to her trademark texture and furnishings from designers, such as Holly Hunt, Bruno Moinard, and Lee Broom.
The exterior was developed by architect Tom Wright knowing his cutting-edge and progressive way of thinking. According to the architect, “We put a strong spine down the middle of the ship, so we could get rid of the bulky metal exoskeleton that limited views and space. People can move closer to the edge near the water.”
