Celebrity Cruises is set to rock the industry with the unveiling of The Celebrity Revolution, a more-than-$500-million reimagining of the fleet in partnership with more than 500 leading architects, designers, and engineers.
“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, 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 just got sweeter
Transforming the brand’s award-winning ships gave Celebrity the opportunity to bring its already world-class suite experience on board Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Infinity, and Celebrity Summit to new heights with the help of 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 vacation. 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 treats. At The Retreat Lounge (formerly Michael’s Club), Hoppen has designed a warm and sophisticated atmosphere.
Celebrity is always looking for new ways to open the world, not only through the places the brand visits, but also through globally inspired culinary experiences.
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 artists of Skullmapping and presented by TableMation exclusively for Celebrity.
Oceanview Café will be redesigned with an open, airy, marketplace-inspired design offering guests island after island of international delicacies, while the already-stunning Main Restaurants will undergo a beautiful redesign, with new textures and new finishes added throughout.
Every detail is being taken to the Edge
Even more ground-breaking innovations are on the horizon with The Celebrity Revolution, including:
- Expansion of the new SEA Thermal Suite – first introduced on Celebrity Edge – to offer an ahh-inspiring array of therapeutic spa experiences at sea.
- Exclusive new shopping experiences featuring brands and designers such as Shinola, John Hardy, and Hublot, plus digital photo galleries that make browsing holiday memories a snap.
- Elevated bars and lounges, including the newly reimagined Passport Bar and an expansion of Celebrity’s popular Gastrobarconcept, serving more than 40 craft beers, creative cocktails, and gourmet comfort food.
- More exciting upgrades to public venues all throughout each ship, including The Hideaway, Team Earth, The Library, and more.
The Celebrity Revolution has already seen the transformation of Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Equinox and Celebrity Constellation, with the rest of the fleet set to undergo their revolutionary revitalisation through until 2023.
If your clients want to sail on the ship that inspired The Celebrity Revolution, Celebrity Edge and the second ship in the brand’s innovative Edge Series, Celebrity Apex, are now offering longer European itineraries. Apex will be making her debut in spring 2020, sailing around Northern Europe, with visits to bucket list destinations such as Lisbon, Portugal; Istanbul; Monte Carlo; Cannes, France; and more.
