Celebrity Cruises has just announced an exciting fleetwide modernization, costing $400 million under the name ‘Celebrity Revolution’.
All cabins and suites will undergo renovation, along with a new sundeck, a revamped lounge and a new café on four of its ships.
‘Celebrity Revolution’ started with Celebrity Edge, the ship arriving in 2018, and the rest of the renovations are expected to begin in 2019.
The accommodation overhaul will be by BG Studios and will completely replace the current layout, décor, bedding and storage with a “sleek, contemporary and comfortable” look, said Brian Abel, Vice President Hotel Operations, for the line.
He continued: “We’re not just redesigning the staterooms, we’re tearing them down and building them back up.”
Other major changes will include the installation of 11,579 cashmere mattresses and a reconfigured layout to “optimize storage and efficiency”.
Guests in the ship’s suites will have exclusive access to a new, resort-style Retreat Sundeck with day beds, cabanas and a pool, and a revamped Retreat Lounge, serving complimentary drinks, snacks and live entertainment.
Oceanview Café will be “an international marketplace with globally influenced menus” and will be introduced exclusively on Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Summit.
“Celebrity Cruises has always been recognized as an innovative, trend-setting brand, and the Celebrity Revolution is just another instance in which we keep raising the bar in ‘new luxury’ travel,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.
“This is the largest investment the brand has ever made to modernize our fleet, and it’s for all our guests.”
