Now's the time for avid cruisers who desire the very best in what Celebrity Cruises calls ‘modern luxury’ to check out the latest innovation from the cruise line. Ship's passengers will be able to indulge in a new 'Suite Class' experience beginning in April of next year.
With top-drawer amenities including an exclusive restaurant for suites-only guests, a VIP lounge and complimentary premium drinks, the newly launched Suite Class has been designed to create the ultimate luxurious cruise-within-a-cruise experience. Guests will enjoy deluxe service from the moment they arrive on board - with their personal butler taking care of every detail.
From the one-of-a-kind Reflection Suite with its jaw-dropping ocean views and unique cantilevered shower, to the stylish Sky Suites, Celebrity's exceptional Suite Class is designed to emulate a ‘lifestyles of the rich and famous’ experience. Is there any other way to travel?
Included in the many upgrades of this special class are ‘private dining’ in a special restaurant reserved exclusively for all Suite Class guests which will be available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each meal will feature unique menus that offer sumptuous dishes not available anywhere else on board.
Guests can immerse themselves in the local culture with specially crafted menus inspired by each destination and created with that locale’s fresh ingredients. Celebrity promises that memorable dishes will be served, from locally caught seafood, to freshly made pasta. The Suite Class chef will provide a tailor-made experience to suite guests and specially prepare dishes to order – extra truffles, please!- while the Cellar Master - Celebrity’s head sommelier - will select from more than 450 wines to provide the perfect pairing.
Premium beverages, dining in all specialty restaurants, a private bar with water, sodas and beers and unlimited internet access – are all complimentary in the Royal, Penthouse and Reflection suites.
A suites-only VIP lounge, Michael's Club, will be available to guests staying in all Celebrity, Signature, Royal, Penthouse and Reflection suite accommodations. Dedicated concierge service and unique food and beverage experiences by Celebrity's ‘James Beard’ featured chef will be provide to those guests who’ve chosen this unique cruising class experience.
Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises said “Our guests are accustomed to to exceptional quality and service, and for those wishing to further indulge in the very best while on vacation we have launched 'Suite Class', specially designed to appeal to the most discerning vacationer.
"We know that suite guests value privacy, personalized service, exclusive access and flexibility, and providing them with their own unique benefits, such as a dedicated restaurant with a dining experience like no other, is just another way that we are significantly elevating the guest's vacation with us."
The very sweet ‘suite class experience’ begins with priority check-in and ends with priority embarkation. Once on board, a butler will unpack guests' luggage and help to book the best land destination experiences. A Suite Class butler will be on hand 24 hours a day to ensure seamless, dedicated and personalized service.
A daily high-end afternoon tea will be served upon request in the guest's spacious and beautifully-designed suite. Deluxe Bulgari bathroom amenities, plush robes, premium bedding and a plush pillow menu are all part of the suite’s indulgent style. Suite class guests will even be able to enjoy reserved theater seating.
Talk about being wrapped up in cotton wool – it’s all possible in ‘Suite Class’ on Celebrity. Now’s the time to plan that special anniversary, birthday, wedding, civil union or reunion cruise – in one of these exclusive suites, of course. Bon Voyage!
