Agents' Choice 2020


Celebrity Cruises is bringing its US$140-million “Solsticizing”initiative – the brand’s coined term for adding on to its four Millennium Class ships some of the most popular venues and experiences found on its five award-winning Solstice Class ships – full circle, as Celebrity Constellation enters a scheduled drydock period to add the full complement of Solstice Class-inspired features and attributes. In 2010, Celebrity Constellation was the first of the four to be Solsticized, with the addition of the specialty restaurant Tuscan Grille, new staterooms, renovated bathrooms, new bedding, new flat-screen TVs, entirely refreshed public spaces, and new colour schemes throughout the ship. Based on positive guest response, Celebrity chose to add even more guest-favourite Solstice Class features on to sister ships Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Summit as each completed the Solsticizing project. And now, Celebrity Constellation will feature the full complement, too. When the ship re-enters service May 5, the following new features and venues will join those that were added in 2010: !!! Celebrity’s stylish AquaClass accommodations – a total of 107 staterooms (37 entirely new, 70 converted from ConciergeClass) – with exclusive access to the Mediterranean-themed “Blu”specialty restaurant and complimentary access to the Persian Garden and Relaxation Room in the ship’s revitalizing AquaSpa; !!! A total of 66 entirely new staterooms (17 oceanview, 12 inside and 37 AquaClass); !!! Spacious new verandas accompanying the ship’s eight luxurious Celebrity Suites, complete with 24/7 butler service; !!! The hip Celebrity iLounge – which made Celebrity the first Authorized Apple Reseller upon introduction on Celebrity Eclipse in 2010, and has since evolved to Celebrity’s designation as an Apple Specialist – with Apple workstations, informative classes on the latest products and technologies, and a retail store; !!! Full Wi-Fi capability throughout the ship; !!! The trendy craft beer experience first introduced in Michael’s Club across Celebrity’s Solstice Class fleet now also will be offered in Celebrity Constellation’s Michael’s Club; !!! A new meetings and conference space accommodating up to 208 guests in one large room, which also can be divided into two spaces. Rounding out the Solsticizing initiative throughout Celebrity Constellation will be new colour schemes, new carpeting and new upholstery reflective of the Solstice Class, new sun loungers on the pool decks, and an upgraded basketball court. Constellation will re-enter service May 5, setting sail from Miami on a 15-night east-bound transatlantic voyage to Amsterdam where the ship will present a seasonal series of Scandinavia, Russia and Baltic sailings.
