Celebrity Cruises unveils modern luxury firsts onboard Celebrity Equinox

Celebrity Cruises has revealed a series of enhancements to be introduced onboard Celebrity Equinox. Emerging from a scheduled drydock in Cadiz (Spain) on 8 May, the Solstice Class ship will boast new signature spaces and experiences in time for guests’ summer sailings during Celebrity Cruises’ most immersive season in Europe.

Recognised for its rich dining programme, Celebrity Cruises will add two new concepts to the array of guest-favourite features onboard:

Gastrobar – A new craft beer and comfort food venue, Gastrobar will offer food and beer enthusiasts over 40 handcrafted boutique beers to choose from in addition to Celebrity Cruises’ collection of wines and cocktails, all perfectly paired with a menu of bar-fare. Gastrobar’s upscale casual surroundings will feature entertainment and music for the complete sophisticated lounge experience. Guests can find the new venue in the space formerly known as Cellar Masters.

Slush – Expanding guests’ ‘cool’ beverage options, Slush – a frozen drinks venue – introduces a menu of flavour-rich and fresh frozen cocktails. Slush will feature alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails with ingredients ranging from fresh pressed lemon juice, raspberries, cucumbers and mint, to Persian lime, Florida Valencia and Hamlin orange juice with organic agave nectar.

Celebrity Equinox will also expand its retail offerings with “The Studio - Fine Art Photography” – a high-end portrait studio ideal for capturing guests’ friends, family or couples holiday photos; the addition of the ever-popular Michael Kors boutique, first introduced onboard Celebrity Silhouette; enhanced upmarket brand products available in stores, including Chanel, Clinique, Dior, Lancôme, Estée Lauder, Desigual and UNOde50; and the ship’s new Internet lounge, Celebrity iLounge, in the space formerly known as Online@Celebrity.


From 15 June 2014, Celebrity Equinox will offer four different seven-night Mediterranean sailings, which can be combined to create immersive holiday experiences as long as 28 nights, with Rome (Civitavecchia, Italy) the only repeat port of call in the line-up.
