Celebrity Cruises to Expand "Solsticizing" Onboard Celebrity Infinity

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2010) - Celebrity Cruises coined the word "Solsticized" in April 2010 when it added some of the most popular attractions found onboard the Solstice class ships to Celebrity Constellation.

Today, Celebrity Cruises has announced plans to add these same popular features to Celebrity Infinity along with its spa-inspired "AquaClass" accommodations and the Mediterranean-themed "Blu" specialty restaurant.

When the Celebrity Infinity cruise leaves scheduled drydock on 3 December 2011 new features will include;

  • AquaClass accommodations – marking a Millennium-Class 'first' – allowing guests on Celebrity Infinity to experience the popular spa-inspired accommodations and amenities
  • The Mediterranean-themed specialty restaurant, "Blu," offered exclusively for AquaClass guests
  • More private luxury havens with entirely new verandas added to the ship's spacious Celebrity Suites
  • The Celebrity iLounge, which debuted on Celebrity Eclipse and made Celebrity Cruises the industry's first Authorised Apple Reseller
  • Additional new ocean view and inside staterooms
  • Tuscan Grille steakhouse
  • Creperie, Bistro on Five
  • Ice-topped Martini Bar
  • Café al Bacio and Gelateria
  • Cellarmasters wine bar
  • More suites, with all new furniture, flat-screen TVs, upholstery, bedding and carpeting
  • Restyled staterooms, with new carpeting, flat-screen TVs, upholstery and bedding
  • New colour schemes, carpeting and upholstery reflective of the Solstice Class' stylish, modern design in every public venue

"Everything we've introduced on our award-winning Solstice Class fleet, and everything we're adding to our popular Millennium Class ships, is inspired by research into what is most important to guests on holiday," said Celebrity's President & CEO Dan Hanrahan.

"All of our new venues and attributes – paired with the spectacular service of our highly dedicated crew – are designed to enhance that all-important feeling of getting away and fully enjoying every aspect of Celebrity Cruises upscale onboard experience."

Celebrity Cruises currently plans to similarly refurbish Celebrity Summit in January 2012, followed by Celebrity Millennium in April 2012.

Bookings for the newly refurbished Celebrity Infinity open Monday 22 November, 2010.
