Celebrity Cruises reinvented venues found fleetwide and integrated new venues with Solstice Class favorites.
Celebrity Cruises aims to set a new industry standard with the unveiling of the brand’s new initiative – the Celebrity Revolution – a complete modernization of its current fleet, beginning in 2019.
Fleet-wide enhancements will vary by ship, but will include a sleek, modern revitalized stateroom redesign, with additional staterooms and suites being added to some ships; technology enhancements; new culinary concepts; refreshed public spaces and dining venues; and a sweeter suite-class experience.
