Shower In Style On Celebrity Cruises’ Newest Ship

Celebrity Cruises is upping the ante when it comes to cruise commodes by adding a new level of luxe to their ship Celebrity Reflection. The new ship’s 1,636-square-foot Reflection Suite, the ship’s first two-bedroom option, will not only feature a private 194-square-foot veranda but also a glass enclosed shower that juts out over the ship’s hull.

It’s not the line’s first sea-view shower (all of the ship’s Reflection Suites have those) but will be the first to include this shower-over-the-sea, complete with option to turn glass from transparent to frosted with a flick of a switch for extra privacy.

“We made a big investment in ensuring our guests can enjoy the shower entirely free of any concerns of being seen,” said Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity’s senior vice president of hotel operations in a release. “We even went so far as to install a special sensor, so if guests prefer, the glass can be automatically transformed for them.”

Nestled in the highly desirable corner location of the ship’s 14th deck, the Reflection Suite is adjacent to the brand’s five new “Signature Suites,” each offering a 441-square-foot stateroom area and 118-square foot veranda, with floor-to-ceiling windows and veranda doors, all designed to maximize the stunning views of the sea. Celebrity’s Signature Suites each can accommodate up to four guests, and also will offer the 24/7-butler service that is a hallmark of every suite across the Celebrity fleet.

The entire area housing the Reflection Suite and Signature Suites can be accessed only by cardkey, an added level of privacy similar to a hotel’s concierge floor.

Celebrity Reflection will enter service October 12, 2012, on a nine-night European cruise from Amsterdam to Barcelona.
