Celebrity's New 'Suite Class' Experience

Celebrity Cruises have unveiled a new onboard experience that adds to the luxury element of their cruises by introducing the 'Suite Class.'

This will be rolled out in April 2015, with exclusive new benefits, including a suites-only restaurant, VIP lounge, complimentary premium drinks and more. Guests will enjoy incredible service from the moment they arrive, with their personal butler taking care of every detail.

In detail, the new Suite Class will include:

Private dining - A dedicated private restaurant reserved exclusively for all Suite Class guests will be available morning, noon and night. Each meal will feature unique menus that offer dishes not available anywhere else on board. Guests can also immerse themselves in the local culture, with specially crafted menus inspired by the local destination, from locally caught seafood, to the freshest pasta. The Suite Class chef can provide a tailor-made experience to suite guests and prepare a dish to their liking, and the Cellar Master will select from more than 450 wines to provide the perfect pairing.

Premium 'all in' benefits - Premium drinks, dining across all speciality restaurants, unlimited internet access and a private bar with water, soft drinks and beers will all be complimentary for guests staying in Royal, Penthouse and Reflection suites.

VIP lounge - A private VIP lounge, Michael's Club, will be available to guests staying in Celebrity, Signature, Royal, Penthouse and Reflection suites. A dedicated Concierge service and unique food and beverage experiences by Celebrity's James Beard-featured chef will be provided to guests.

Celebrity President and CEO Michael Bayley explained: "Our guests are accustomed to exceptional quality and service and, for those wishing to further indulge in the very best while on board, we have launched 'Suite Class', designed to appeal to the most discerning holidaymaker. We know suite guests value privacy, personalised service, exclusive access and flexibility, and providing them with their own unique benefits, such as a dedicated restaurant with a dining experience like no other, is just another way we are significantly elevating their holiday with us." 

The Suite Class experience will also include a daily high-end afternoon tea service served in the guest's suite, plus stateroom amenities and benefits, like deluxe Bulgari bathroom amenities, plush robes, premium bedding and an indulgent pillow menu. A host of other extras will also be provided during the guest's stay, including reserved theatre seating.
