Celebrity Cruises expands already rich slate of suite offerings
MIAMI – Vacationers who love a rich array of luxurious services and amenities have always enjoyed an indulgent experience while sailing in any Celebrity Cruises suite.
And now, the “suite life” on Celebrity – already offering one of the industry’s broadest array of luxury amenities – is even sweeter.
In addition to one of Celebrity’s most idolized suite offerings – modern, 24/7 butler service that has consistently yielded rave reviews – suite guests now will enjoy an even broader list of services and amenities, including the Celebrity eXhaleTM bedding program, with premium mattresses, 100% Egyptian cotton linens, and plush duvets and pillows; BVLGARI luxury bath products; dual iPod/iPad docking stations; reserved theater seating, and an upgraded “welcome” bottle of Blanc de Blanc sparkling wine, complete with a commemorative label featuring exclusive artwork from ArtCenter/South Florida artists.
“Expanding our already broad slate of suite amenities is yet another outgrowth of Celebrity’s deep understanding of how rare and meaningful vacation time is for our guests, so we’re laser-focused on offering the absolute best ways for them to escape from their everyday routine and feel totally relaxed and re-energized,” said Celebrity’s Senior VP of Hotel Operations Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “Vacationers investing in suites expect – and deserve – a luxurious experience with a generous host of premium services and amenities, which we’ve always been devoted to delivering. And now, we’re thrilled to enhance their experience even further, with additional amenities that match their lifestyle and reflect our modern luxury ambience.”
The new amenities enhance the inclusive premium services and privileges already provided in every category of suites across the Celebrity fleet, beginning with Celebrity’s European-trained butlers, who offer assistance with unpacking and packing, arranging in-suite dining and afternoon tea service or espresso from Café al Bacio, shoeshine service, and assistance booking spa treatments, shore excursions and specialty dining. Additional services and amenities include priority boarding and debarkation, priority boarding of tenders ashore, one complimentary dinner for two (on 7-night itineraries) or two dinners for two (on 8-night or longer sailings) in one of Celebrity’s specialty restaurants, priority selection of dining time, spacious verandas, Hansgrohe showerheads, use of plush Frette bathrobes, oversized 100% cotton bath towels, a pillow menu, fresh cut flowers, daily fresh fruit platter, and a complimentary tote bag.
“We continue to hear from guests who’ve sailed with the leading all-inclusive luxury lines that Celebrity’s suite experience is just as spectacular, and represents an even better value,” said Lutoff-Perlo. “And just wait until you see the suites we’re introducing on Celebrity Reflection!”
The new categories of suites debuting on Celebrity Reflection in October of this year will feature even more amenities to suit the personalities of each suite category and the guests within them:
- Celebrity’s jaw-dropping, two-bedroom, 1,636-square-foot “Reflection Suite” with 194-square-foot wraparound veranda will feature what sketches alone are already creating buzz among consumers and press: a fully glass-enclosed – including glass floor and ceiling – shower room extending out over the edge of the ship, offering breathtaking, 360-degree ocean views, a rain showerhead and heated bench seat. The industry-first shower isn’t the only area of the suite offering stunning views: the Reflection Suite also will feature 10-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding door, and include a grand piano, dining room table, wet bar, and choice of a complimentary bottle of vodka, scotch or gin with accompanying mixers, all in addition to Celebrity’s existing slate of suite amenities.
- Celebrity’s new 441-square-foot “Signature Suites” debuting on Celebrity Reflection also will boast stunning views of land and sea via 10-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding door leading to a 118-square-foot veranda, and will complement the host of previous and new fleetwide suite amenities with a whirlpool on the private veranda, which is also associated with the “Celebrity Suite” category across the fleet.
- Guests vacationing in Celebrity’s new “AquaClass Suites” can enjoy the additional services of a personal Spa Concierge to arrange AquaSpa treatments; exclusive access to the Mediterranean-themed specialty restaurant, “Blu”, along with AquaClass stateroom guests; complimentary access to the Persian Garden and Relaxation Room; five-head Hansgrohe shower tower; fog-free bathroom mirrors; custom-blended bath products; aromatherapy diffuser, and on-demand wellness programming on the in-stateroom network, including meditation and yoga.
