This isn’t just a makeover, it’s a $500-million game-changer.
Celebrity Cruises is set to transform the cruise industry with the unveiling of Celebrity Revolution. With more than 500 leading architects, designers and engineers will be coming together to bring the award-winning fleet to the Edge.
The first “revolutionary” revitalisation will take place in 2019, starting with Celebrity Millennium, and will continue across the fleet through 2023.
“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 vacation they truly deserve.”
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 fusion of East meets West, 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, Celebrity Cruises introduced an exclusive new sanctuary for all Suite Class guests called The Retreat. And now, Celebrity is bringing its most luxurious experiences fleet-wide.
The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge
Every ship will offer The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge – a chic, open-air hideaway with the feel of a high-end resort. At The Retreat Lounge (formerly Michael’s Club), Hoppen has designed a warm and sophisticated atmosphere.
Cabins to be Redesigned
Celebrity collaborated with renowned international hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) to transform the staterooms onboard Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Infinity, and Celebrity Summit, plus the staterooms and many of the suites onboard 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
- RFID locks
- Pervasive Xcelerate and Bluetooth capabilities.
Redesigned Restaurant Venues
Qsine will be added across the fleet, 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.
The Main Restaurants will undergo a redesign, with new textures and new finishes added throughout.
