During a news conference on December 8, 2010, Celebrity Cruise Lines announced changes to its two newest ships: Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Reflection. During the conference Dan Hanrahan, President CEO of Celebrity Cruises, stated:
“We recognize that consumers’ vacation time is precious, and that’s what drives us to continually create new and unique experiences that enhance their rare time away.” Hanrahan continued to say “The host of honors our Solstice Class and Millennium Class have won have been incredible validation of that commitment, and on Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Reflection, we’re capitalizing on the opportunity to further elevate our onboard offerings, particularly in our Solstice Class’ iconic Lawn Club, and with our wildly popular AquaClass category of accommodations and its exclusive specialty restaurant, Blu. Initially, we planned to introduce these exciting new enhancements only on Celebrity Reflection, but to our delight, our outstanding partners at Meyer Werft were able to also deliver every new feature with the exception of AquaClass Suites on Celebrity Silhouette.”
Here’s a glimpse of what to expect:
New AquaClass Sky suites highlight expanded accommodations
Celebrity will introduce the line’s first AquaClass Suites on Celebrity Reflection. Each AquaClass suite will offer 251 square feet interior space and 57-square-foot balcony, plus, all the amenities associated with Celebrity’s AquaClass accommodations, including exclusive and complimentary access to the highly-rated specialty restaurant “Blu”; and, will also include 24/7 butler service.
The Lawn Club Grill
This feature is an industry first! You’ll have the chance to use grills along side Celebrity’s chefs or have your meat cooked to order. The 56 seat restaurant will have a nominal cover charge.
Eight private cabanas will be available for full or half day rentals. The cabanas are designed for two to four people and will offer picnic baskets and la carte beverage menus.
