So much more than a suite
There’s a revolution of sorts brewing in the cruise industry, courtesy of The Retreat, Celebrity Cruises’ newest, all-inclusive suite experience. We all want the best value for our money and that’s why many experienced travelers opt to stay in a suite versus a standard room or cabin when booking a cruise. Suites come with extra perks and amenities like bigger rooms with better locations, more pampered services, priority embarkation, and access to exclusive areas of the ship. That’s what sets them apart from other accommodations, providing guests the most bang for their buck. And from sea to shining sea, The Retreat® does it better than any other cruise line.
An exclusive suites-only area of the ship, The Retreat is much like a "ship within a ship." As the Celebrity fleet undergoes its $500 million Celebrity Revolution, every ship will have The Retreat Sundeck, the redesign of The Retreat Lounge, and reimagined suite accommodation interiors. So much more than a suite, The Retreat isn’t a place. It isn’t an amenity. And it isn’t a service. It’s all of this and more.
The Retreat’s stunning accommodations, including its private restaurant, exclusive lounge, and sundeck rival any high-end resort. A dedicated team of attendants will include a Personal Retreat Host, as well as pre-cruise and onboard Retreat Concierges who will do everything to ensure you never have to lift a finger on vacation.
Intuitive service and amenities for guests abound like priority check-in, departure, and port tendering/boarding; reserved theater seating on Evening Chic nights; world-class cuisine at Luminae at The Retreat; complimentary 24-hour in-suite dining; and preferred seating in specialty restaurants for select suites.
Luminae at The Retreat boasts a boldly elegant interior that's as distinctive as the cuisine you’ll enjoy here. The menu options are found nowhere else on board, including the new signature dishes created by Global Culinary Ambassador Daniel Boulud, complimentary to all guests of The Retreat. Daniel Boulud is Chef-Owner of several award-winning restaurants and has mastered the dining scene. Today he is considered one of America’s leading culinary authorities.
A truly luxurious and inviting outdoor sanctuary, The Retreat Sundeck features a spacious lounge area and plush, stylish furniture. With an inviting pool and relaxing hot tubs, swinging chairs, and cool, shaded spaces, it’s a blissful, tranquil escape that beckons to be shared. Retreat Attendants will help with towels, freshly made cocktails, snacks — whatever you need to completely enjoy this incredible space.
At the exclusive, warm and inviting Retreat Lounge, guests enjoy complimentary beverages, gourmet bites, and a stylish place to unwind in style 24/7, along with the services of a dedicated concierge.
All of The Retreat’s suites offer expansive views and stunning design that blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living. Inside, no detail has been overlooked. From cashmere mattress to premium amenities, you'll never want to leave your room.
Thoughtfully curated premium amenities include a complimentary welcome bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine, complimentary in-suite specialty coffees and fresh fruit delivered upon request. Celebrity’s eXhale® bedding, featuring plush duvets, 100% pure cotton sheets, and a pillow menu to customize your night’s sleep, can be transformative. Wrap yourself from head to toe in luxury with premium bath products and amenities including plush Frette robes, towels, and slippers.
As a guest of The Retreat, you’ll also enjoy a long list of thoughtfully curated value-added amenities that start with five newly added perks — a shore excursion credit, premium drinks, streaming Wi-Fi, tips, and an onboard credit to spend almost any way you like. With all of this included, it’s no wonder that The Retreat is considered by those in the know to be the best vacation value for their money spent.
