Celebrity Cruises unveils ship overhaul plans for Summit and Infinity vessels

Celebrity Cruises is building on its multi-million dollar refurbishment programme by making even more upgrades to two ships – Celebrity Infinity and Celebrity Summit.

New features will include a brand new ‘Rooftop Terrace’ venue, upgrades to the Suite Class experience and the addition of one of Celebrity Cruises’ signature speciality restaurants, Tuscan Grille.

As the first cruise line to offer a spacious lawn of real, growing grass on the top decks of its ships, Celebrity Cruises will expand its modern, luxurious outdoor spaces this month when Celebrity Infinity receives a brand new “Rooftop Terrace” venue during a scheduled dry-dock.

Featuring chic, comfortable furniture, a large outdoor film screen and stereo surround sound, the space will offer experiences that combine movies and food.

Celebrity Summit will follow with a similar scheduled dry-dock in March 2016.


The new Rooftop Terrace will offer guests a relaxing open space to kick back in during the day, and by night the space will show movies and other entertainment with a range of specially curated food options inspired by the entertainment, the destination, or the occasion also available.

The Rooftop Terrace will be on the 12th deck of the ship and will officially open on December 5th 2015.

“The Rooftop Terrace is a brand-new way to enjoy the great outdoors on a modern luxury holiday,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president, Celebrity Cruises.

“The popularity of our Lawn Club venues has shown us that some of the richest moments our guests enjoy are when relaxing in beautiful outdoor spaces.

“In creating the Rooftop Terrace, we wanted to create a hot spot where guests can kick back under the stars in the middle of the ocean, with amazing entertainment and food.”

As part of the $8 million refresh, Celebrity Cruises is investing heavily in its Suite Class experience on Celebrity Infinity and Celebrity Summit, as every Penthouse and Royal Suite will receive new fixtures, marble surfaces, and comfortable seats in the bathrooms.

The rest of the suite will get refreshing touches like new carpeting, curtains, and bed linens.

“We want these suites to be so luxurious and comfortable that it’s difficult for guests to leave at the end of their holiday,” Lutoff-Perlo said.

“We want the entire ship to turn heads.”

Conversion of Celebrity Infinity’s S.S. United States restaurant to Tuscan Grille, Celebrity Cruises’ popular Mediterranean-inspired steakhouse will include a refreshed menu designed to tantalise.
