The 2000-built cruise ship Celebrity Millennium has emerged from dry dock in Singapore following an extensive refurbishment, part of the cruise line’s $500 million Celebrity Revolution project.
The 2,038-passenger cruise ship is the first in the Celebrity Cruises fleet to undergo the Celebrity Revolution. The ship emerged from dry dock with the cruise line’s new livery, featuring a dark blue hull, like that seen on the cruise line’s newest ship, Celebrity Edge.
The dry dock saw extensive refurbishment both to the interior and exterior of the ship. All staterooms were overhauled and all now feature Celebrity's eXhale luxury bedding.
The main dining room has been redesigned and now has a much lighter and airier décor. Michael’s Club has been transformed into the Retreat Lounge, which is exclusive to guests booked in suites. A suite-guest only Retreat Sundeck has also been added to the ship.
Additional changes to the Celebrity Millennium also include a complete re-design of the spa. The Qsine restaurant has been upgraded to receive the Le Petit Chef experience and Cellar Masters has been transformed into a gastrobar.
Further ships in the Celebrity Cruises fleet will also undergo refurbishment work over the coming years, with Celebrity Summit scheduled to dry dock in March 2019.
The $500 million investment Celebrity Cruises is making in order to bring the entire fleet to the same standard as its newest ship, Celebrity Edge, which launched in December 2018.
The cruise line will transform the ships interiors by bringing Kelly Hoppen’s signature style of clean lines and opulence to the fore and introduce some of the same venues found on Celebrity Edge to the rest of the fleet.
