Celebrity Cruises, known for providing “star treatment” to its guests, plans to offer star treatment to one of its ships. Celebrity Galaxy will undergo an approximately $4-million makeover during its scheduled drydock in Freeport, Bahamas, from April 18 through May 2. During that time:
The ship’s two-level main dining room will be completely refurbished, with new, contemporary carpeting, reupholstered and newly varnished chairs, new waiter stations, and entirely new floor-to-ceiling columns.
The adjacent RendezVous Lounge will be enhanced with entirely new upholstery, as will the Martini Bar, one of the Celebrity brand’s most popular signature spaces.
Not to be upstaged, the Celebrity Theater will be completely refurbished, with new carpeting and upholstery throughout.
The casual dining and buffet areas will be entirely revitalized, with new chairs, carpeting, upholstery and lighting.
The neighboring pool deck area will be made even more inviting, with new teak bolidt decking, and striking new glass tiles surrounding the pool.
The retail area also will be enhanced, with entirely refurbished jewelry boutiques and brighter, more contemporary new product-display areas throughout.
The Stratosphere Lounge – an observation area by day and dance club by night – will feature entirely new carpets and lounge seating upholstery.
Contemporary new carpeting will be laid in 250 staterooms, and new sinks and new upholstery will complement the same work that already has been completed in the balance of the ship’s staterooms.
