Solsticizing the Millenium Class
Celebrity Cruises is in the midst of a large-scale renovation, a process they’re calling “Solsticizing the Millennium class after their newest class of ships. “Our beautiful, award-winning Solstice class is well known, so with just one word we are conveying the idea that we are bringing the lovely Millennium class of ships up to the Solstice class standards,” said Sharla Smith, Regional Sales Manager for Celebrity Cruises. What started with a refurbishment of the Celebrity Constellation in 2010 will span two years until all four Millenium class ships—including the Infinity, the Summit, and the Millenium, are shiny and new.
Updates range from fresh linens and new flat-screen TVs in the staterooms to new specialty dining options and a new public zone called the iLounge, designed in partnership with Apple.
Celebrity isinvesting $150 million per ship for the renovation process, with plenty of timein dry dock to ensure no detail is overlooked. The cruise line studied passenger feedback to determine what changes were needed, Ms. Smith reports. “We have studied what guests like best about the Solstice class to recreate similar experiences on Millennium class, such as AquaClass staterooms and new dining optionslike Blu and Tuscan Grille.”
2012 will bring other changes for Celebrity Cruises aside from renovations. The Celebrity Milennium will sail to Asia for the first time ever this fall, and the Celebrity Solstice will head to Australia and New Zealand for the first timelater this year.
