Celebrity Cruises are calling their $500-million reimagining of the fleet The Celebrity Revolution. Set to transform the cruise industry the project, in partnership with more than 500 leading architects, designers, and engineers, is designed to bring the rest of the brand’s award-winning fleet to the Edge.
When redesigning the accommodations, every detail was carefully thought through with guest comfort at the front of mind. Celebrity collaborated with renowned international hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) to transform the staterooms as part of THE CELEBRITY REVOLUTION.
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 and RFID locks.
THE SUITE LIFE JUST GOT SWEETER
Revolutionizing the brand’s award-winning ships gave Celebrity Cruises the opportunity to bring its already world-class suite experience on board Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Infinity, and Celebrity Summit to lavish new heights with the help of visionary designer Kelly Hoppen, MBE, who redesigned the Sky Suite. She will also infuse the Reflection Suite and Signature Suites, found today on Celebrity Reflection, and newly added 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.
With Celebrity Edge, the brand introduced an exclusive new sanctuary for all Suite Class guests called The Retreat. And now, Celebrity Cruises is bringing its most luxurious experiences fleet-wide. Every ship will offer The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge, both strikingly 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 tantalising cocktails, and savour refreshing treats. At The Retreat Lounge (formerly Michael’s Club), Hoppen has designed a warm and sophisticated atmosphere.
Celebrity Cruises is always looking for new ways to open the world, not only through the places the brand visits, but through globally inspired culinary experience, as well.
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 Cruises. 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 Restaurant will undergo a beautiful redesign, with new textures and new finishes added throughout.
EVERY DETAIL IS BEING TAKEN TO THE EDGE
Even more groundbreaking 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 indulgent array of therapeutic spa experiences at sea
- Exclusive new shopping experiences featuring sought-after brands and designers, such as Shinola, John Hardy, and Hublot, plus state-of-the-art digital photo galleries that make browsing vacation memories a snap
- Elevated bars and lounges, including the newly reimagined Passport Bar and an expansion of Celebrity Cruises’ popular Gastrobar concept, 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
CONSERVING OUR SEAS
Celebrity Cruises will be using advanced silicone-based paint to coat the underwater hull of the ships and their goal is to increase fuel efficiency on Celebrity Millennium Class ships by 20% and reduce emissions fleetwide.
The first “revolutionary” revitalisation will take place in 2019, beginning with Celebrity Millennium, and will continue across the fleet until 2023.
