Traveloscopy attending in 2020:

Wednesday, December 5, 2012


Celebrity Cruises welcomed the fifth and final ship in its stylish Solstice Class fleet Celebrity Reflection to the Port of Miami at the weekend, on the heels of the ship's inaugural European season.

Celebrity Reflection was named in ceremonies by its four Godmothers -- all employees of the company whose lives have been touched by breast cancer:

·         Celebrity Reflection AquaSpa Manager Jovanka Goronjic;
·         Solstice Class Hot Glass Show Artist Megan Mathie;
·         shoreside Community Relations Manager Helen O'Connell; and
·         shoreside Special Events Manager Rosey Rodriguez.

Each took the stage with Chairman & CEO Richard D. Fain, Celebrity's President & CEO Michael Bayley, and Celebrity Reflection Captain Nicholas Pagonis, together with three of the Godmothers of Celebrity Reflection's sister ships.

Attending the momentous event was managing director of Celebrity Cruises in Australia, Gavin Smith.  "Celebrity Reflection is a beautiful ship with many exciting new features.  Celebrity Cruises offers a modern luxury experience that has been inspired by their guests and their needs, and we are pleased that Celebrity Reflection's sister ship, Celebrity Solstice, is making her debut in Australia this summer season.  Solstice Class cruising will no doubt become an instant favourite down under," said Smith.

Among the ship's multiple new, guest-inspired attributes are five 441-square-foot "Signature Suites" with 118-square-foot verandas; the brand's first "AquaClass Suites," building on the popularity of Celebrity's spa-inspired AquaClass staterooms, by adding additional space and 24/7 butler service, the jaw-dropping "Reflection Suite," a two-bedroom suite with a total of 1,636 square feet and 194-square-foot veranda, and a distinctive, all-glass shower extending out over the edge of the ship.

Celebrity Reflection also presents an entirely new, multi-functional Conference Centre, and a host of industry-first venues and experiences first introduced on Celebrity Silhouette in 2011, including the interactive "Lawn Club Grill," where guests can select and grill their own meats side-by-side with Celebrity's expert chefs, or have them cooked to order; the relaxing, private, wi-fi-equipped cabanas called "The Alcoves"; "The Porch," a breezy, casual dining spot offering sandwiches, coffees and captivating views of the sea and the ship's lush lawn; "The Art Studio," where guests can bring out their inner artist. The ship also boasts an entirely new venue, "The Hideaway," an intimate, quiet space reminiscent of a childhood tree house.

Following her two-night naming cruise that took place from 1-3 December, the ship will host another invitation-only, two-night sailing, then will embark on her inaugural Caribbean season on 5 December until April 2013.
