On the all-new Celebrity Millennium, discerning world travelers will enjoy enhancements that include:
Completely redesigned staterooms and suites
The addition of The Retreat for suite guests, with a new sundeck and redesigned lounge
Reimagined restaurants, bars, and lounges
A redesigned spa and casino
New designer boutiques
Celebrity Millennium's bow-to-stern transformation began on January 2, 2019, at the Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore. There, it spent a total of 35 days in the skilled hands of thousands of engineers, architects, artisans, designers, contractors, shipyard employees, and the newbuild and Celebrity teams.
When redesigning the staterooms and suites, every detail was carefully thought through with guest comfort at the forefront. Celebrity collaborated with Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) to transform the staterooms on board and turned to designer Kelly Hoppen to refresh the suites and bring The Retreat to Celebrity Millennium.
Enhancements made to the staterooms and suites include:
Refreshed suite design and finishes by Kelly Hoppen
The Retreat Sundeck, an exclusive open-air hideaway for Suite Class guests designed by Hoppen and featuring a new hot tub, cabanas, loungers, artwork, and more
The Retreat Lounge (formerly Michael's Club), an exclusive 24/7 lounge for Suite Class guests designed by Hoppen and offering complimentary beverages, gourmet bites, live entertainment, and concierge service
