The Celebrity Revolution
August 2018 | By Celebrity Cruises |
Reimagining the best ships in the world
We launched The Celebrity Revolution to do one thing—transform the way you experience the world. It began with the introduction of our new ship, Celebrity EdgeSM, with an innovative outward-facing design that connects you to the sea and the destinations beyond like never before. It continued with the announcement of Celebrity FloraSM, the first ship designed specifically with the Galapagos Islands in mind. And now, we’re bringing together more than 500 leading architects, designers, and engineers to take our entire award-winning fleet to the edge with new design concepts inspired by the ship that started it all, Celebrity EdgeSM.
This isn’t a makeover. It’s a $500-million revolution. Stunningly redesigned accommodations. Exclusive new sanctuaries for Suite Class guests called The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge. Luxuriously updated restaurants, bars, and lounges. New boutiques featuring the hottest designer names. And it’s all just beginning. For our biggest fleet modernization ever, no project is too big and no detail too small to give you the leading-edge vacation experience you deserve. This is how the world’s best premium cruise line becomes more incredible than ever. This is The Celebrity Revolution.
Suite Class: The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge
With Celebrity EdgeSM, we introduced an exclusive new sanctuary for all Suite Class guests called The Retreat. And now, we’re bringing its most luxurious experiences fleetwide. Every ship will offer The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge, both strikingly envisioned by world-renowned interior designer Kelly Hoppen, MBE. With 40 years of experience at the forefront of the design industry, Kelly is one of the most sought-after interior designers in the world. In imagining The Retreat Sundeck, she has created a chic, open-air hideaway with the feel of a high-end resort, where you can unwind on plush loungers, sip tantalizing cocktails, and savor refreshing treats. At The Retreat Lounge (formerly Michael’s Club), Kelly has designed a warm and sophisticated atmosphere perfect for enjoying your complimentary beverages, gourmet bites, live entertainment, and more. This exclusive lounge includes concierge service for any arrangements you need—on board or off.
As a Suite Class guest, you’ll also have access to Luminae, our private Suite Class restaurant, featuring unique menus crafted by our Michelin-starred chef and available nowhere else on the ship. The Retreat Sundeck, The Retreat Lounge, and Luminae are all complimentary and all exclusive to every Suite Class guest. That’s in addition to luxurious amenities such as personal butler service, Bulgari bath products, plush robes, and priority check-in and debarkation—just to name few. Of course, we haven’t even gotten to the suites themselves yet.
Suites and Staterooms
Revolutionizing our award-winning ships gave us the opportunity to bring our already world-class suites to lavish new heights. After all, this is your home away from home as you travel the world. In Suite Class, we’ve teamed up once again with Kelly Hoppen to bring the visionary ideas she started on Celebrity EdgeSM to the rest of our award-winning ships. She’ll infuse our suites with her signature style—a subtle, coordinated fusion of East meets West, with clean lines, neutral tones, and a warm, inviting opulence.
It’s not just our suites that are getting a design overhaul. Every room—from our inside and ocean view staterooms to our Concierge Class and AquaClass® staterooms—is being boldly rethought. From a fresh, new look rivaling the world’s best boutique hotels to luxurious CashmereSM mattresses you won’t find anywhere else, every detail of our staterooms has been elevated, every comfort refined. You might never want to leave your room—if it weren’t, of course, for the stunning ship and incredible destinations waiting just beyond your door.
