The long awaited Celebrity Equinox keeps making headlines, this time for its AquaClass staterooms, designed to offer a spa-focused ambiance.
Celebrity’s AquaClass veranda staterooms, 130 of 1,426 staterooms on board, are situated near the ship’s two-story spa, AquaSpa by Elemis. AquaClass is the only stateroom category in Celebrity’s fleet that offers no third or fourth room berthing, making the area quieter and more exclusive for guests.
While staying in an AquaClass stateroom, guests can enjoy spa amenities including, unlimited access to the AquaSpa’s Persian Garden aromatherapy steam room, featuring heated ceramic loungers and the Relaxation Room, which offers vistas from loungers.
Guests are also offered unlimited, complimentary access to the ship’s “clean-cuisine” and Blu, the Mediterranean-influenced restaurant. The dinner menu features appetizers along the lines of roasted beet salad with goat cheese; Mediterranean chopped salad with pita chips and pomegranate vinaigrette and entrees including blackened ahi tuna, pan-seared filet mignon, and herb-crusted rack of lamb. Blu is also open for breakfast, exclusively for AquaClass and suite guests.
In-stateroom amenities include, a pillow menu featuring Swedish Isotonic, body and hypoallergenic pillows, carafes of unsweetened ice tea, lavender oil in a reed diffuser and a five-jet shower by Hansgrohe. On-demand video programming that introduces guests to wellness-themed activities such as meditation and yoga is also available.
All guests on Celebrity Equinox are welcome to indulge in the ship’s AquaSpa by Elemis. The spa, offering full service on all ships except the 92-guest mega-yacht, Celebrity Xpedition, will offer new treatments on Celebrity Equinox, including a new treatment: the 24-Karat Gold Facial. The treatment speeds up cell renewal and results in a rebalanced, nourished, brighter and more clarified skin texture and complexion.
The new ship will offer "red carpet make-up" application after every facial in its line-up, featuring a natural touch of Colorscience mineral powder and lip gloss.
Guests who experience the 24-Karat Gold Facial on Celebrity Equinox will also be able to enjoy a cocktail inspired by the treatment itself. The Golden Kiss Martini will feature Golden Supreme vodka, cucumber juice, agave syrup and lemon juice, mixed with fresh mint.
Celebrity Equinox will offer a “lash and brow bar,” where guests can choose from a variety of eyelash enhancements, offered in three styles: Natural Lashes, Evening Eyes or Ultra Glam. Brow sculpting will be offered by expert aestheticians who carefully shape and define the eyebrows to give the face an instant lift and a polished appearance. Brow tinting will be available in various shades. Lash tinting will also be available.
Celebrity Equinox’s AquaSpa will offer a full line up of massages, wraps, couples treatments, rituals and facials. The ship also offers men’s barber services, including traditional barber shaves.
Celebrity also presents a comprehensive slate of medi-spa offerings onboard. As the first cruise line to offer onboard acupuncture, Celebrity will continue to offer this popular treatment on Celebrity Equinox, in a space located within the AquaSpa. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are offered aboard Equinox along Restylane and Perlane treatments, Elemis Oxydermy facials and teeth whitening.
A full-service fitness center, located in the AquaSpa area of the ship, will offer guests the option to exercise at their own pace or participate in group fitness classes. An outdoor walking/jogging track gives guests the opportunity to take in the sea air while staying healthy. Celebrity also offers guests the option to purchase personal training services onboard.
Celebrity Equinox is scheduled to enter service July 31 from Southampton, England, on an eight-night cruise through the Norwegian Fjords, followed by a series of Mediterranean sailings from Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy, beginning August 8.
Celebrity sails in Alaska, California, Canada/New England, the Caribbean, Europe, Galapagos Islands, Hawaii, the Pacific Coast, Panama Canal and South America. The line also offers cruisetour vacations in Alaska, Canada, Europe and South America.
