Introducing The Reflection Suite:
Water, water everywhere – but even so, a real quality shower is an essential onboard! Celebrity Cruises have definitely taken this to heart. They have announced the arrival of their amazing new ‘Reflection Suite’ on board the ship Celebrity Reflection. It will feature a shower with full glass surround that even extends out over the side of the ship!
The Reflection Suite is Celebrity Cruises’ first two bedroom suite and is over 1,636 sq ft and has a sea view bathroom with a rain shower (not literally hopefully), a 194 sq ft veranda, a 24/7 butler service and this amazing floating glass shower.
One thing that might be passing through your mind, as it is mine, is that if it is made of glass, how will you preserve your dignity? Well, Celebrity have thankfully thought of just about everything. Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity’s Senior VP of Hotel Operations assures us that “Guests can enjoy breathtaking sea views while discreetly showering, courtesy of the shower’s special reflective glass”. However, if you are still not convinced let me explain more: the shower has ‘smart glass’ that activates an electrochromatic technology, which changes the glass to translucent instead of transparent. “We made a big investment in ensuring our guests can enjoy the shower entirely free of any concerns of being seen” said Ms Lutoff-Perlo “We even went as far as to install a special sensor, so if guests prefer, the glass can be automatically transformed for them”.
In addition, the suite will be on a corner location of the 14th deck adjacent to the five new “Signature Suites”. So, it’s more than likely that only the seagulls will see you anyway, phew!
The Signature Suites offer a 441 sq ft stateroom, and they have a veranda that has floor to ceiling sea views from the full length windows and doors. These suites can accommodate 4 guests and will share the 24/7 European butler service with the Reflection Suite.
The whole area of the ship where the suites are located are accessed only by a special card key and can accommodate up to 26 guests which would be ideal for a private party to enjoy a modern luxury experience.
Celebrity have also just introduced their AquaClass spa inspired accommodation. They have put an additional deck on Celebrity Reflection and each suite will offer 300 sq ft of space and have 79 sq ft verandas. In addition to the spa facilities the cruisers will have exclusive access to “Blu” an exclusive speciality restaurant which offers fantastic healthy cuisine. These suites will also have the luxury of a butler service .
With a further 19 Concierge staterooms, 8 Sky suites, 11 inside staterooms and the 34 new AquaClass Suites, Celebrity Reflection will be able to offer a total of 1,515 amazing suites for that really special holiday.
Your first opportunity to take this fantastic experience will be on 12th October 2012 when Celebrity Reflection will leave Amsterdam for a 9 night European cruise to Barcelona.
