Celebrity Cruises is taking suite life to new heights with enhancements to The Retreat, unveiling more perks and amenities than ever before.

"At The Retreat, the world really does revolve around our guests," said Laura Hodges Bethge, president of Celebrity Cruises, in a press release. "We collected extensive feedback from past guests, loyalty members and our trade partners to inform how The Retreat experiences are being reimagined to continue exceeding vacation expectations by delivering on the amenities and experiences Celebrity Cruises guests value most."

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

A dedicated shore excursions expert, The Retreat Destination Experience Specialist, is now available for guests of The Retreat to make the most of their time on shore, from planning destination-related activities, to ensuring smooth transfers when discovering Celebrity's most sought-after ports of call.

Additionally, guests can relax prior to excursions from the comfort of The Retreat Lounge and will enjoy suite-to-car butler escorts for Private Journeys excursions.
