In addition to one of Celebrity Cruises’ top suite offerings – 24/7 butler service – suite guests now will enjoy an even broader list of services and features, including dual iPod/iPad docking stations; BVLGARI luxury bath products; the Celebrity eXhaleTM bedding programme, featuring premium mattresses, plush duvets and pillows; reserved theatre seating, and an upgraded “welcome” bottle of sparkling wine, the company said in a statement.
“Expanding our already broad slate of suite features is yet another outgrowth of Celebrity Cruises’ deep understanding of how rare and meaningful holiday time is for our guests, so we’re completely focused on offering the absolute best ways for them to escape from their everyday routine and feel totally relaxed and re-energised,” said Celebrity Cruises’ Senior VP of Hotel Operations, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “Guests investing in suites expect – and deserve – a luxurious experience with a generous host of premium services, which we’ve always been devoted to delivering. And now, we’re thrilled to enhance their experience even further, with additional features that match their lifestyle and reflect our modern luxury ambience.”
The new features enhance the premium services and privileges already provided in every category of suites across the Celebrity Cruises fleet, beginning with European trained personal butlers, who offer assistance with unpacking and packing, arranging in-suite dining and afternoon tea service, shoe shining and booking spa treatments, shore excursions and speciality dining. Additional offerings include priority boarding and debarkation, priority boarding of tenders ashore, one complimentary dinner for two (on seven-night itineraries) or two dinners for two (on eight-night or longer sailings) in one of Celebrity Cruises’’ speciality restaurants, priority selection of dining time, spacious verandas, 100% cotton bath towels and bathrobes, a pillow menu, fresh cut flowers, a daily fresh fruit platter and a complimentary tote bag.The enhancements are rolling out fleet-wide now, with the exception of Celebrity Xpedition which sails year-round in the Galapagos Islands.
“We continue to hear from guests who’ve sailed with the leading all-inclusive luxury lines that Celebrity Cruises’ 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 this year and their features include:
· Celebrity Cruises’ two-bedroom, 1,636-square-foot “Reflection Suite” with 194-square-foot wraparound balcony will feature a fully glass-enclosed shower room extending out over the edge of the ship, offering 360 degree ocean views, a rain showerhead and heated bench seat. In addition, the Reflection Suite will also feature 10-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows, 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 Cruises’ existing range of suite features.
· Celebrity Cruises’ new 441-square-foot “Signature Suites” debuting on Celebrity Reflection also will boast stunning views via 10-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows leading to a 118-square-foot veranda, and will complement the host of previous and new fleetwide suite offerings with a whirlpool on the private veranda, which is also associated with the “Celebrity Suite” category across the fleet.
· Guests holidaying in Celebrity Cruises’ 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; custom-blended bath products; and on-demand wellness programming on the in-stateroom network, including meditation and yoga.
