One of Australia’s favourite cruise ships has added a range of new features.

Arriving into Sydney on 14 November, Celebrity Solstice will reveal a raft of improvements including:

A Taste of Film
Celebrity Solstice will be the first of the Solstice Class ships to offer this gastronomic and film adventure, which pairs big-screen movies that evoke a specific cultural, culinary or destination experience, with cuisine that brings the scenes on the screen to life through guests’ taste buds. Additionally, a large movie screen will be added to The Lawn Club where the unique culinary experience will be hosted.

Lawn Club Cabanas
Brand new alcove-style cabanas will border the real grass lawn for additional seating and relaxation space. Guests will be able to adjust the cabanas to their preferred view throughout the day, whether it be out to sea or towards the outdoor movie screen.

Sushi on Five
Celebrity’s hotly anticipated newest dining experience will take the place of Bistro on Five and feature an expertly crafted à la carte menu, curated by sushi chef Yoshikazu ‘Yoshi’ Okada. Sushi on Five will offer hand-rolled sushi, fresh tableside grated wasabi, house-made soy sauce, Asian-inspired cocktails, Japanese beers and premium sakes, plus an array of starters and entrees.

Photo Gallery
Celebrity Solstice’s Photo Gallery will receive a full modern luxury makeover, removing the traditional panel display of printed photos and introduce 25 touch screen kiosks, where guests will be able to view their professional photos taken throughout their cruise and purchase a variety of photo formats. This new service allows guests to download their purchased photos direct to their mobile device at any time during their cruise, and instantly share their cruise memories with friends and family back home via social networking, email or messaging.

In addition, an expansive Art Gallery will emerge from the current Photo Gallery, featuring a dedicated auction location with contemporary art lining the freshly renovated space.

The ship’s suites will also see various modern luxury enhancements, including lavish new patio furniture being added to suite balconies.
