What’s Up with Celebrity Cruises?
Celebrity Cruises is the “premium” cruise line of Royal Caribbean.
What makes Celebrity premium?
Their fleet of “Solstice Class” ships, which includes the original Solstice, the Equinox, the Eclipse, the Silhouette, and the newest, Reflection, have been rated by consumers as “best in class”.
Best in Class takes into consideration superior entertainment, culinary excellence, onboard activities, luxurious accommodations and a caring staff.
Celebrity met with their architects to create something special with the Reflection. This ship is the last of their revolutionary Solstice Class ships and has some expanded features including the Reflection Suite, a 1,830 square foot space which features the Reflection shower - a cantilevered shower with glass walls allowing for 360-degree views. The ship also features an extended AquaSpa with an infrared sauna, aromatic steam room and sensory showers which use lights and sounds for an unbelievable experience. Hungry? The Celebrity Reflection is the only ship at sea with 60 dishes that are SPE Certified, meaning they are not only nutritious, but also delicious. These features are just additions to all the other wonderful Solstice-Class features like the Lawn Club and Art Studio.
This is by no means to suggest anything below standards for the parent company’s ships.
Where as Royal Caribbean has the “WOW Factor” with their super large ships, such as the Harmony of the Seas, featuring a ton of dining options, a myriad of family activities and the latest in onboard technology, Celebrity prefers a more intimate experience with a maximum of 1,500 cabins.
Introducing the first “Edge Class” ship.
The Edge is the next innovation for Celebrity, set to start sailing in late 2018. The Edge is now open for booking.
Can a cruise ship have a “Magic Carpet”? You betcha.
The highlight of the Celebrity Edge is the outward-facing vision- the Magic Carpet, an extraordinary venue that changes mood, function, and even its location. This incredible engineering feat is the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of 13 stories above sea level, so you can soar over the open ocean. With breathtaking views, a full bar, and space for live entertainment, it is truly an innovation in itself.
Set foot on the Celebrity Xpedition, a state-of-the-art, 100 passenger vessell, sailing exclusively through the Galapagos Islands.
Enjoy special amenities such as room service, complimentary plush bathrooms, a fitness room, and nightly lectures by certified naturalists from the Galapagos National Park.
The Celebrity Xpedition sails on 10/111 night and 15 night cruises that include Quito, Baltra Island, Daphne Island, Gardner Bay, Suerez Point, Curmorant Port, Post Office Bay, Baroness Outlook, Murano Point and more.... and, of course Machu Picchu.
With only 50 cabins, the Expedition sells out quickly.
