The Celebrity Revolution Will Change the Way You Think of Cruising
Forget makeover. Forget remodel. Forget refurbishment. What's about to happen to Celebrity Cruises fleet with the Celebrity Revolution is beyond that: it's modernization.
Starting in 2019, Celebrity Cruises is going to be giving its entire fleet of ships the "Edge treatment" to turn the ships' current modern luxury into something even more astounding for cruisers.
The modernization is being referred to as the Celebrity Revolution and is inspired by the aesthetic and design of Celebrity Cruises' newest ships: Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Flora. Celebrity Edge is an innovative, state of the art vessel that was designed to bring the outside in whenever possible so guests truly feel like they are escaping to the open sea. Celebrity Flora is a small ship that was intricately planned with the Galapagos at the forefront of every design decision since that's where the ship will be sailing.
Now, the entire fleet is getting updated to reflect the design philosophy of these new ships. With the Celebrity Revolution, all of Celebrity Cruises' ships will have elements of Celebrity Edge.
Celebrity Cruises will be spending over $500 million and working with over 500 of the world's leading architects, engineers, and designers to rework its existing ships into something even more beautiful and comfortable for travelers.
Celebrity Revolution Suites and Staterooms
Every stateroom and suite on the ships going through the Celebrity Revolution process will be getting an update. Celebrity Cruises is using the expertise of Kelly Hoppen, MBE, to revolutionize the private spaces for people on board.
Kelly Hoppen also did the interior design for Celebrity Edge and her visionary design creates gorgeous spaces that are also comfortable to reside in.
The new look of the staterooms and suites on Celebrity Cruises after the Celebrity Revolution enhancement will be fresh and modern with the feel of a high-end boutique hotel. The accommodations will also have Celebrity Cruises' exclusive eXhale bedding that includes cashmere mattresses. For those looking to stay connected during their cruise, there will be Xcelerate and Bluetooth capabilities in the onboard accommodations.
Suite Class guests won't only benefit from updated accommodations. After the Celebrity Revolution, guests staying in suites will get access to the Retreat on all the ships, and not just Celebrity Edge where it has been introduced. The Retreat is a new space that is exclusive to the Suite Class and provides a VIP experience thanks to its private lounge and sundeck, sophisticatedly designed by Hoppen.
Celebrity Revolution Cuisine and Restaurants
For cuisine, the Celebrity Revolution will be introducing some of the dining features that are poised to make Celebrity Edge so memorable. Celebrity Edge will have creative presentation and restaurant that reflect the destinations where Celebrity Cruises sails.
The Celebrity Revolution will also expand the gastropub concept on board and will provide cruisers with more options for trying craft beer and delectable comfort food.
Oceanview Cafe will also be getting a redesign to turn it into an airy marketplace that is laidback yet refined and lets passengers enjoy the stunning scenery unfolding around them while eating.
The Main Dining room will be getting a design enhancement while the much-loved Qsine restaurant will become even more memorable thanks to the addition of Le Petit Chef, an animated chef who shows up next to your plate and demonstrates how each dish is prepared before it's served to you.
Celebrity Revolution Spa Enhancements
The spa on board Celebrity Cruises will also be getting some of the Edge magic. One of the most talked about spaces on Celebrity Edge is the SEA Thermal Suite, a relaxation zone that infuses elements of the sea, earth, and air into a variety of soothing areas, including a Hamman, Salt Room, Rainfall Water Therapy Room, and more.
A version of the SEA Thermal Suite will be added to all the ships going through the Celebrity Revolution to make your cruise even more therapeutic. There will be more AquaClass staterooms added next to the spa as well; AquaClass guests will get unlimited access to the SEA Thermal Suite.
More Celebrity Revolution Updates on Board
Other spaces on board will also be getting a new Celebrity Revolution look. The Casino will be enhanced with sleek features and a new, bigger bar area. For shopping, additional boutiques with new brands and designers will be introduced. The photo viewing area will also be updated with a state of the art platform to make finding and choosing pictures of your favorite vacation memories a breeze.
The Library, Passport Bar, the Hideaway, and Team Earth will also be getting upgraded during Celebrity Revolution, though the onboard modernization doesn't stop there and guests will find enhancements and special new touches throughout the ship as a result of the Revolution undertaking.
The Celebrity Revolution will begin with Celebrity Millennium in 2019 with all ships scheduled to be modernized by 2023. To find out more and book your cruise on a Revolutionized ship, visit Celebrity Cruises or speak with your travel agent.
