Celebrity Cruises is adding spa, salon and personal fitness appointments to its ever-growing line-up of onboard experiences available for pre-cruise booking.
“One of the most valued elements of a Celebrity Cruises holiday is the outstanding service that we offer to our guests,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Senior Vice President, Hotel Operations. “Even the process of planning for specific experiences such as spa and salon appointments reflects our commitment to service and our ‘Designed for you’ brand platform. Our guests tell us that the more they can arrange in advance, the less they have to think about once they join us onboard. We’ve designed more than 100 AquaSpa, salon and fitness offerings to help our guests enjoy relaxation and renewal.”
Celebrity Cruises pre-cruise spa, salon and personal fitness appointment booking options join a series of experiences available for guests to book online in advance of their cruise. These include beverage packages, shore excursions, specialty dining reservations, and complimentary “Celebrity Select Dining” main dining room preferences.
With the new pre-cruise spa, salon and personal fitness booking option, Celebrity Cruises aims to give its guests the peace of mind associated with knowing that their spa, salon, and personal fitness appointment times are secured. The option to pre-book these activities online can help guests avoid disappointment after boarding by discovering that desired times are already taken by other guests.
By mid-November 2010, guests will be able to book spa, salon and personal fitness appointments prior to their cruise on six of the nine Celebrity Cruises ships. The first ship to offer this option is Celebrity Solstice, the flagship of the stylish new Solstice Class ships. Guests sailing on Celebrity Solstice can currently book and pay for spa, salon and personal fitness appointments up to four days prior to their sailing date. Guests booked on voyages departing on 21 August or later on Celebrity Cruises newest Solstice Class ship, Celebrity Eclipse, can also book these appointments.
On 26 August, guests sailing on Celebrity Equinox’s voyages departing on or after 9 September can book these appointments. The roll-out will continue throughout 2011, when Celebrity Cruises will launch its fourth Solstice Class vessel, Celebrity Silhouette. A complete list of dates is available at www.celebritycruises.com/AquaSpa
Guests can access the ordering system via Celebrity Cruises’ website, www.celebritycruises.com, in the “Before Your Cruise” section.
Celebrity Cruises electronic pre-cruise documents provide links that facilitate the pre-cruise booking of all of pre-cruise booking offerings, including beverage packages, shore excursions, specialty dining reservations, and complimentary “Celebrity Select Dining” main dining room preferences. Guests also can book spa, salon and fitness services once onboard.
The pre-cruise spa, salon and fitness appointment booking option is available to all guests over 18 years of age, worldwide. Modifications and cancellations can be made online anytime up to four days prior to sailing or onboard at least 24 hours prior to the appointment. Certain terms and conditions apply.
Guests sailing on Celebrity Xpedition, the 92-guest mega-yacht sailing year-round in the Galapagos Islands, can book massage treatments after boarding the ship. Pre-cruise booking of this service is not available.
