Celebrity Cruises have revealed further details about its upcoming new cruise ship, Celebrity Edge which is due to launch in December 2018. The ship is currently under construction at the STX shipyard in France.
At an event in London on 17 May 2018 the cruise line revealed further details about The Spa which will be on board the exciting new cruise ship. Present at the event was Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President & CEO, Celebrity Cruises and Jo Rzymowska, Vice President, Celebrity Cruises, UK & Ireland and Asia.
Also present was interior designer Kelly Hoppen MBE who is responsible for the design of The Spa on board Celebrity Edge which will be located on Deck 14 & 15 covering more than 22,000 sq. ft.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises, said: “Our aspiration for The Spa was the same aspiration we have for Celebrity Edge – to provide our guests with a deeper and more profound connection to the sea. To start the revolution in relaxation, we turned once again to the visionary Kelly Hoppen to completely transform the spa experience and develop an atmosphere that envelops you in luxury and soothes your soul from the moment you walk in.”
Kelly Hoppen MBE, said: “The spa has always been a sacred space to me; as a young girl, I always dreamt of designing my very own spa and Celebrity Edge proved to be the perfect outlet for living out my dreams. A spa is a place where one goes to relax and be pampered, so for me The Spa had to be neutral in palette and complementary lighting, evoking a sense of calmness. Every aspect of the design is meaningful to me; from the dramatic crystal installation – which was inspired by the qualities that crystals have had on my life – to the imposing and dramatic, yet Zen sculpture acting as a reception desk.”
Celebrity Cruises has infused natural elements into every moment of the experience at The Spa through an original concept called SEA – inspired by the Sea, Earth, and the Air – which transcends the design of The Spa and treatments.
SEA unites every experience throughout the wellness journey. Bespoke blended essences fill the air, kickstarting the path to total bliss. The Relaxation Lounge surrounds guests in a Zen-like ambience, clearing their mind before their treatments begin. And every treatment starts with a unique welcome ritual to prepare one’s mind, body, and spirit for the pure, unadulterated pampering to follow.
Glenn Fusfield, President and CEO, One Spa World, LLC, said: “As we curated The Spa journey with Celebrity, the inspiration behind this revolutionary concept was to connect guests with nature while delivering distinctive sensory experiences, uncompromising service, and a wealth of new wellness choices that are exclusive at sea. We’ve created a concept that not only evolves spa and wellness but sets the new standard.”
Celebrity Cruises has teamed up with the leading authorities in their fields to harness cutting-edge technological and therapeutic innovations to create a spa experience unlike anything else. There are more than 124 treatments, including signature offerings such as the Ocean Spa Wave Massage, Hot Mineral Body Boost, Poultice-Powered Muscle Release, Zero Gravity Wellness Massage, Restorative Salt Stone Massage, and Thousand Flower Detox Wrap, to name a few.
From wellness to beauty to fitness, The Spa on Celebrity Edge also features a whole host of first-at-sea and brand-first offerings for guests to enjoy.
The cruise line unveiled the SEA Thermal Suite, which is an evolution of the popular Persian Garden on the brand’s current fleet, with eight distinctive therapeutic experiences harnessing the benefits of natural elements: the Hammam, Salt Room, Steam Room, Rainfall Water Therapy Room, Float Room, heated tile loungers, Infrared Sauna, and Crystalarium. AquaClass guests receive complimentary access to the SEA Thermal Suite, among other complimentary amenities.
Celebrity Edge will offer ELEMIS BIOTEC facials, the first ever offered on a ship in the Celebrity Cruises fleet. The Spa will also feature a specialty treatment table collection that’s unrivalled at sea, including:
