After the success of Celebrity Edge and its innovative restaurants and sumptuous spa facilities, Celebrity have recently revealed its plans to revitalise the whole fleet to the same refreshing standard.
The modernisation has been named ‘Celebrity Revolution’ and is a $500 million investment from the cruise line – the largest the brand has ever made.
Following the introduction of industry-transforming Celebrity Edge, the cruise line will continue the trend with refurbishments starting first with the Millennium and Solstice Classes.
The refurbishment includes maximising storage and efficiency in the staterooms, with a new cashmere mattress also be introduced.
Suite guests can also enjoy a new retreat sundeck, promising the ultimate place to relax and unwind. While the Retreat Lounge will be the perfect high-end lounge for Suite Class guests to enjoy complimentary beverages, gourmet bites and live entertainment.
A new venue, Oceanview Café, will also be added on-board Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Summit, drawing inspiration from international marketplaces with globally influenced menus.
Other new features include expansion of the new SEA Thermal Suite, new shopping brands and designer products, reimagined Passport Bar and expansion of Celebrity’s Gastrobar concept – serving more than 40 beers – as well as more upgrades to public venues including The Hideaway, Team Earth, The Library and more.
Major fleet revitalisation
The entire project is expected to be completed between February 2019 and February 2023, soon after the maiden voyage of Celebrity Edge later this year.
The schedule of ships and completion dates are as follows:
- Celebrity Millennium – February 2019
- Celebrity Summit – March 2019

Celebrity Cruises CEO and President, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said:
“We launched the Celebrity Revolution to do one thing – transform the way our guests experience the world. It began with the introduction of the industry-changing Celebrity Edge, and continued with the stunning Celebrity Flora. Our dedication to improving the way guests experience the world knows no bounds. We are taking out entire award-winning fleet to the edge and giving people the vacation they truly deserve.”
The cruise line has worked with hospitality design firm, Hirsch Bedner Associates to complete the overhaul and provide a fresh look for the fleet. Interior designer, Kelly Hoppen, who also directed the works on-board Celebrity Edge, will take charge of the renovation of the ships’ suites.
