Celebrity Cruises has unveiled details of The Celebrity Revolution, a more than US$500 million re-imagining of the fleet in partnership with more than 500 leading architects, designers, and engineers designed to bring the rest of the brand’s award-winning fleet to the Edge.
“We launched The Celebrity Revolution to do one thing – transform the way our guests experience the world. It began with the introduction of the industry-changing Celebrity Edge, and continued with the stunning Celebrity Flora,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises.
“Our dedication to improving the way guests experience the world knows no bounds. We are taking our entire award-winning fleet to the edge and giving people the holiday they truly deserve.”
The Suite Life
Celebrity will transform Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Infinity and Celebrity Summit to lavish new heights with the help of visionary designer Kelly Hoppen, MBE. She will also infuse the newly added Reflection Suite and Signature Suites (found today on Celebrity Reflection) to Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Eclipse, Celebrity Equinox and Celebrity Silhouette, with her signature style – a subtle, coordinated fusion of East meets West, with clean lines, neutral tones and a warm, inviting opulence.
“This was a new and exciting challenge to recreate something stylish and luxurious yet totally different from the accommodations that I have designed for Celebrity Edge,” said Hoppen.
“I wanted to invoke a feeling of timeless luxury that welcomed guests into their own haven. Your bedroom is where you sleep and where you wake, two of the most important times of day, especially when you are on holiday. It was important to create space, harmony and luxury within a home away from home setting and I think we achieved this balance perfectly.”
With Celebrity Edge, the brand introduced an exclusive new sanctuary for all Suite Class guests called The Retreat, and now Celebrity is bringing its most luxurious experiences fleet-wide.
Every ship will offer The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge, both designed by Hoppen. In imagining The Retreat Sundeck, she has created a chic, open-air hideaway with the feel of a high-end resort, where guests can unwind on plush loungers, sip cocktails and savour refreshing treats.
When redesigning the accommodations, every detail was considered with guest comfort at the front of mind. Celebrity collaborated with renowned international hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) to transform the staterooms on board Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Infinity and Celebrity Summit, plus the staterooms and many of the suites on board Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Eclipse, Celebrity Equinox, Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Reflection into a statement about modern luxury.
“Every detail of our staterooms has been elevated, every comfort refined,” said Brian Abel, Senior Vice President, Hotel Operations, Celebrity Cruises. “By the end of The Celebrity Revolution, the entire fleet will have the same quality, design essence and consistency of modern luxury, bringing our fleet to the edge.”
All staterooms will feature a fresh, chic design, rivalling the world’s best boutique hotels. They will also be fitted with Celebrity’s eXhale bedding featuring exclusive luxurious cashmere mattresses, RFID locks, pervasive Xcelerate and Bluetooth capabilities.
Guest-favourite restaurant Qsine will be added across the fleet and completely renovated, now offering the brand’s virtual Le Petit Chef experience, created by the world-famous artists of Skullmapping and presented by TableMation exclusively for Celebrity. Oceanview Café will be redesigned with an open, airy, marketplace-inspired design offering guests a plethora of international delicacies, while the main restaurants will undergo a redesign, with new textures and finishes added throughout.
More innovation is on the horizon with The Celebrity Revolution, including:
- Expansion of the new SEA Thermal Suite – first introduced on Celebrity Edge – to offer an array of therapeutic spa experiences at sea.
- Exclusive new shopping experiences featuring sought-after brands and designers, such as Shinola, John Hardy and Hublot.
- Elevated bars and lounges, including the newly re-imagined Passport Bar and an expansion of Celebrity’s popular Gastrobar concept, serving more than 40 craft beers, cocktails and gourmet comfort food.
- More exciting upgrades to public venues throughout each ship, including The Hideaway, Team Earth, The Library and more.
The first revitalisation will take place in 2019, beginning with Celebrity Millennium, and will continue across the fleet through 2023. Celebrity Solstice – the ship based frequently in Australia over the summer – will also be revitalised in 2023 under the program and following a face lift in 2017.
