Celebrity Cruises is taking the suite life to new heights with new enhancements for The Retreat, its upscale ship-within-a-ship complex on select ships.

All suites in The Retreat come with a dedicated butler who is now just a message away with Butler Chat, allowing for faster and easier communication from anywhere on board or ashore.

A dedicated shore excursions expert is now available for Retreat guests, who can plan activities in port, ensure smooth transfers between the ship and the top sights, and more. Additionally, guests can relax prior to excursions in The Retreat Lounge and enjoy suite-to-car butler escorts for Private Journeys excursions.

At the suites-only restaurant Luminae, culinary offerings have been enhanced including new signature dishes from chef Daniel Boulud and a new rotating dinner and dessert menu. In suite, passengers can enjoy personalized daily delights, chosen from the in-room dining menu, as well as a complimentary stocked minibar.
