The masters of modern luxury cruising, Celebrity Cruises, made a big splash when it launched the revolutionary Celebrity Edge but this line isn’t done wowing cruise enthusiasts just yet. Celebrity is following up the introduction of their new Edge ship class with a $500 million modernisation which radically reimagines their fleet in light of a new era in cruising. The Celebrity Revolution is coming.
Starting in 2019 with the Celebrity Millennium, the Revolution will bring redesigned accommodations, updated restaurants and lounges, fresh boutiques and all new sanctuaries for Suite Class guests. The President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, said of the bold new move, “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.”
To give Celebrity’s staterooms and suites a firm push into the future, world renowned designer Kelly Hoppen was brought onboard once again, following the acclaim with which her Celebrity Edge innovations were greeted. “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.”
Of course, it’s not just accommodations which are getting caught up in the Celebrity Revolution. The culinary experiences onboard Celebrity are also being brought up to an exciting new standard. For a start, the ever popular Qsine restaurant is being rolled out across the fleet and entirely renovated. The refreshed eatery will also incorporate Celebrity’s virtual Le Petit Chef experience, where you can have the novel chance to watch a cute little animated chef prepare your upcoming dish on your plate while you’re waiting for the real thing to arrive. Oceanview Cafe and the Main Restaurants will also be undergoing redesigns so that guests can enjoy, innovative, top notch culinary experiences across the board.
In addition to food and rooms, the Celebrity Revolution will be bringing a raft of other groundbreaking innovations to the fleet, including exclusive new shopping experiences, exciting upgrades to public spaces, an expansion of the SEA Thermal Suite and reimagined bars and lounges. Kicking off the Revolution in 2019 and unrolling it across the fleet for the following four years or so, Celebrity is upping their game in a whole new way, and it’s cruisers who’ll be the ones to benefit.
