Celebrity Cruises has announced Constellation will enter a scheduled drydock period to add “the full complement of Solstice Class-inspired features.” In 2010 Constellation was the first of the four Millenium-class ships to be “Solsticized,” with the addition of “the specialty restaurant Tuscan Grille, new staterooms, renovated bathrooms, new bedding, new flat-screen TVs, entirely refreshed public spaces, and new color schemes throughout the ship.” When the ship re-enters service May 5, 2013, these new features will be added:
— Celebrity’s AquaClass accommodations – a total of 107 staterooms (37 entirely new; 70 converted from ConciergeClass) – with exclusive access to the Mediterranean-themed “Blu” specialty restaurant and complimentary access to the Persian Garden and Relaxation Room in the ship’s revitalizing AquaSpa.
— A total of 66 entirely new staterooms (17 oceanview, 12 inside and 37 AquaClass)
— New verandas accompanying the ship’s eight luxurious Celebrity Suites, complete with 24/7 butler service
— Full wi-fi capability throughout the ship
— New color schemes, new carpeting and new upholstery reflective of the Solstice Class, new sun loungers on the pool decks, and an upgraded basketball court.
To celebrate, Celebrity is launching an online “Memory Match” game from April 20 through May 20, 2013, with the opportunity to win a copy of Celebrity’s “Excite the Senses” lifestyle book at www.celebritycruises.com/matchgame. — Gerry
