Celebrity Adds Concierge Class

April 4, 2003
Lost in all the hubbub over Celebrity's "rebranding" program, which introduces a variety of niceties -- shipwide -- to the onboard experience, is the line's plans for "ConciergeClass." Separate from the line's onboard enhancement effort, Celebrity's ConciergeClass is available only to passengers who purchase premium ocean-view with veranda and only to those traveling on the line's Millennium-class vessels for an additional fee. What does it cost? While the announcement says prices for ConciergeClass cabins will vary based on itinerary, a spokeswoman says that passengers should prepare to pay a surcharge of about $10 per person per day. Located on deck nine on Constellation, Infinity, Millennium and Summit, these cabins measure 191 square feet with a 41-square-foot veranda but the real news is the extras that are (or will be -- ConciergeClass is already implemented on Infinity and launches April 27 on Millennium, May 9 on Summit and May 10 on Constellation) integrated into the experience. Among them? A complementary bottle of champagne on arrival, fresh flowers, personalized stationary and -- wait, stop the presses! -- a leather key holder! Perhaps more substantial than that last item are other amenities, which include better-than-standard-Celebrity bath essentials, from extra-thick robes to a Hansgrohe showerhead. Other in-cabin pluses include pillow-top mattresses and a pillow menu. The veranda is uniquely outfitted with a table large enough for dining plus cushioned chairs and even binoculars. Special services to which these passengers are entitled include priority luggage delivery and shore excursion bookings.
