Celebrity Cruises To “Solsticize” The Millennium-class Ships

Written by: Cruise News

January 8, 2010.  By Dave Beers.

Celebrity Cruises latest campaign – named “Designed For You”- was fleshed out further yesterday with the announcement that the Millennium-class ships will be retrofitted to add several features from the Solstice-class vessels.

Celebrity President & CEO Dan Hanrahan says the success of the Solstice-class ships has caused them to take a look at the Millennium-class ships and “Solsticize” all four of these vessels.

The changes will include the following:

- The addition of popular Tuscan Grille extra-fee restaurant.

- The addition of the ice-topped Martini Bar and the Crush vodka bar.

- Café al Bacio and Gelateria.  This will take the place of the current Cova Cafe.

- Bistro on Five, the popular creperie introduced on Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox

- A new wine bar which features a wine serving system where passengers can select and serve wines by the glass with the touch of a button.

- New cabin furnishings with flat-screen TVs and upgraded bedding.

- More suites.

The Constellation will be first when it undergoes a 2-week shipyard period this coming April.  Celebrity aims to refit one ship per year which means all work will be completed by 2014.

Additionally, and perhaps more importantly to long-time Celebrity fans who remember the high end cuisine of the Chandris days (it has declined since the line was purchased by Royal Caribbean), the cruise line is also taking a serious look at their food service with a goal of regaining a reputation for excellent food.
