Modern luxury brand Celebrity Cruises has formally named the fifth in its fiveship Solstice Class fleet, Celebrity Reflection, which sails to the Caribbean from PortMiami.
Presiding over the ceremony on Dec. 1 were the ship’s 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 chair and CEO Richard D. Fain, Celebrity’s president and CEO Michael Bayley, and Celebrity Reflection Captain Nicholas Pagonis, together with three of the godmothers of Celebrity Reflection’s sister ships, in a naming ceremony tradition unique to Celebrity.
Among the ship’s multiple new, guestinspired 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 to the host of amenities already associated with AquaClass; the jaw-dropping “Reflection Suite,” a twobedroom 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 Center, and the host of industry-first venues and experiences 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, and “The Art Studio,” where vacationers can bring out their inner artist.
The ship also presents another venue first introduced on Celebrity Silhouette, “The Hideaway,” an intimate, quiet space reminiscent of a childhood tree house, not to mention the diverse array of other modern venues and attributes already associated with Celebrity’s Solstice Class ships.
Celebrity Reflection recently embark on her inaugural Caribbean season with roundtrip seven-night sailings from PortMiami.
