Passengers who book the 1,636-square-foot Reflection Suite on Celebrity Cruises are in for an over-the-top experience, literally. The suite comes with a gorgeous glass rain shower that extends out over the edge of the ship taking showering to new heights.
The suite, which debuts on the new Reflection in October 2012, also comes with a 194-square-foot veranda, two bedrooms and the usual amenities associated with Celebrity’s luxury suites, including European butler service.
Celebrity’s senior vice president of hotel operations, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo was completely transparent about how the company will preserve the privacy of guests using the unique glass shower: “We made a big investment in ensuring our guests can enjoy the experience entirely free of any concerns of being seen,” said Lutoff-Perlo. “They can enjoy breathtaking sea views while discreetly showering, courtesy of the shower’s special reflective glass.” For further privacy the shower features smart glass, that transforms the glass from transparent to translucent at the flick of a switch.
Perched in the highly desirable corner location of the ship’s 14th deck, and designed by New York-based BG Studio International Inc., the Reflection Suite is adjacent to the brand’s five new Signature Suites, each offering a 441-square-foot stateroom area and 118-square foot veranda, with floor-to-ceiling windows and veranda doors, all designed to maximize the stunning views of the sea. Celebrity’s Signature Suites each can accommodate up to four guests, and also will offer the luxurious 24/7 butler service that is a hallmark of every suite across the Celebrity fleet. The suites are accessible only by cardkey allowing for the ultimate in privacy.
Driven by high demand for Celebrity’s industry-first AquaClass category of spa-inspired accommodations, and by way of an additional deck being added to Celebrity Reflection, the ship will also sport line’s first AquaClass Suites. Each of the 34 suites will offer 300 square feet of luxurious interior space and spacious 79-square-foot verandas plus the amenities such as complimentary access to the highly-rated specialty restaurant, Blu. The new suites also will offer the luxurious 24/7 butler service that is a hallmark of every suite across the Celebrity fleet.
Accommodations will include eight luxurious new Sky Suites, 19 additional plush ConciergeClass staterooms, and 11 additional inside staterooms, bringing the stateroom/suite total to 1,515.
