Description

Celebrity Cruises is a cruise line which was founded in 1988 by the Greece-based Chandris Group. In 1997, Celebrity Cruises Ltd. merged with Royal Caribbean International to become Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., which operates Celebrity, Royal Caribbean InternationalAzamara Club CruisesPullmantur Cruises and CDF Croisières de France. The signature "Χ" displayed on the funnel of Celebrity ships is the Greek letter chi, for "Chandris". The company has its headquarters in Miami, Florida. Common features on board Celebrity brand ships are aft-glass dining rooms, formal foyer areas, alternate dining venues, balcony and suite staterooms, large pools and lounging areas, signature bars and lounges, libraries, elegant spas and gyms, and relaxation areas.


Celebrity Cruises offers an exceptional level of personal service, accommodations that are among the most spacious at sea and a wide variety of activities and amenities. Onboard, you can attend an informative onboard lecture or discover unique gifts in the upscale boutiques. Other features and services include enhanced adult enrichment programs, more interesting shops in the Emporium complex, "welcome aboard" sparkling wine and mimosas, a spa cafe dinner option that's tops in the industry, wine tastings (and the first Riedel comparative wine workshops at sea), a revamped sports deck, extensive golf programs and the innovative Acupuncture at Sea program (taking over the space once occupied by Notes on the Millennium-class ships). Innovative bar options abound, with the frozen Martini Bar and offbeat Molecular Bar. 


The company has shown enthusiasm for blending the innovative with the classic -- for instance, decorating with both contemporary and traditional art.

In 2007, the line engaged culinary consultancy Blau & Associates to work closely with Celebrity's culinary staff across the fleet to maintain the line's most popular items and complement them with fresh, contemporary and creative concepts that will continue to deliver an exceptional dining experience onboard. The entire fleet's casual dining and buffet areas are receiving facelifts. On its first two Solstice-class ships, Solstice and Equinox, Celebrity has also introduced novel alternative restaurant concepts, from Asian-fusion to Italian steakhouse, including an eatery exclusive to AquaClass (spa) stateroom passengers. For Celebrity Eclipse, the line introduced a fun, new dining idea. Qsine, which replaces Silk Harvest, takes commonplace or comfort foods and twists the recipe, presentation or both to live up to its slogan, "Uniquely Unordinary." Expect to try DIY sliders, sushi lollipops and much more. On its latest ships, Silhouette and Reflection, Celebrity introduced a 58-seat dining venue on the top deck -- the Lawn Club Grill -- which (for a $40 cover charge) marries a cooking lesson and all-you-can-eat churrascaria and pizzeria.

In September 2009, Celebrity began rolling out a beta test of its Celebrity Select flexible dining program, which became available fleetwide in February 2010. Flex-dining passengers are able to reserve dining times online before their cruises or once they're onboard the ship.

All Celebrity ships have cabins and suites that are standard in size and amenities. (A minimum category stateroom at 172 square feet is a plus for bargain seekers.) Celebrity has also upgraded amenities in all cabin categories to include terry cloth robes and in-room service from the dining room menu. The Celebrity fleet's AquaSpa transports passengers to a whole new world with treatments inspired by rituals from exotic cultures. Passengers can discover a state of complete tranquility in the Persian Garden or pamper themselves with a host of indulgences.

All standard cabins have TVs with closed-circuit movies and Sony's interactive features; direct dial telephones; minibars; safes; hair dryers and convertible twin/queen beds. And on U.K.-based Celebrity Eclipse there is in-cabin tea and coffee making facilities. A large number of cabins have private balconies (56 percent of all accommodations on Millennium-class ships). Suites have verandahs and an outstanding private butler service. Additional in-suite amenities include DVD players or VCRs, personalized stationery, whirlpool baths, afternoon tea and predinner canapes. In addition to alternative restaurants on Millennium-class ships (specialty restaurants levy $5 to $40 per person service fee), Celebrity has launched an evening casual dining program fleetwide. These are in addition to the traditional main dining room. 

Beyond its general increase in enhancements, Celebrity offers Concierge Class accommodations. This unique class of oceanview staterooms offers passengers extra amenities, from service-related additions (priority luggage service, complimentary sparkling wine) to plusher furnishings (luxurious bed coverings and pillow menu, some balconies with dining tables). Concierge Class services were expanded in 2012 to include a predeparture lounge with free coffee and juices. Originally available only on Millennium-class ships, the innovation proved so popular that it is available on most of the ships in the fleet. And another new category of staterooms debuted with the Solstice class: AquaClass cabins, which cater to spa enthusiasts and include spa perks and use of an exclusive, intimate restaurant, Blu. These were so popular that Celebrity added 34 AquaClass Suites onboard Reflection.

In February 2014, Celebrity announced it would add a new class, "The Suite Class," to its ships. Suite Class passengers will have their own private restaurant and private VIP lounge.

Key features on the Solstice Class vessels include the Lawn Club, a freshly manicured lawn on the highest deck. Passengers can enjoy casual outdoor activities in a country-club atmosphere and enjoy the grass between their toes, watch a glass-blowing demonstration on Solstice, Equinox and Eclipse; or a meal in the Lawn Club Grill on the latter two ships. These ships also feature Cellar Masters, a bar inspired by the vineyards of Napa Valley, which brings to life the experience of a global wine tour while you learn about and taste a large variety of wines from around the world. In a welcoming and unique onboard environment, you'll discover new wines, receive recommendations and enrich your wine knowledge.
