Not long ago I remodeled my master bath, adding a shower that included a rain head and four body sprays. I thought that was innovative…and then I saw what Celebrity Cruise Line is adding to the Celebrity Reflection suite! In your widest dreams, could you have imagined this? Its a cantilevered shower featuring see-through glass on its floor and ceiling as well as its sides, that is coated with a reflective material that Celebrity promises will keep outsiders from looking in during the day. How’s that for maximizing the stunning views of the sea?
Celebrity's Senior VP of Hotel Operations Lisa Lutoff-Perlo explains how the brand will preserve the privacy of guests using the unique glass shower: ""We made a big investment in ensuring our guests can enjoy the shower entirely free of any concerns of being seen,"" said Lutoff-Perlo. ""They can enjoy breathtaking sea views while discreetly showering, courtesy of the shower's special reflective glass. But, if they seek even further privacy, the shower also features 'smart glass.' At the flick of a switch, guests can activate an electrochromatic technology which instantly transforms the glass from transparent to translucent. We even went so far as to install a special sensor, so if guests prefer, the glass can be automatically transformed for them. It's yet another example of the modern luxury experience that only Celebrity delivers.""
The Reflection Suite will be the first suite on a Celebrity ship with two bedrooms. The 194 square foot wrap around balcony is larger than some basic cabins on the vessel! Lutoff-Perlo says there's growing demand from Celebrity's customers for elaborate suites, even at high prices, and the line has realized it needs more of them.
The Celebrity Reflection enters service Oct. 12 with a nine-night sailing from Amsterdam to Barcelona followed by two more Europe sailings and a trans-Atlantic voyage from Europe to the States. It then will spend the coming winter sailing to the Caribbean out of Miami before heading to the Mediterranean for the summer of 2013."
