The original in its class, the Celebrity Solstice, first took to sea in November 2008 at more than 1,000 feet and an occupancy of nearly 3,000 people at the time the largest ship of its kind built in Germany. Cruise fanatics reacted enthusiastically, and the buzz was not lost on Celebritys execs. The class has been so well-received that Celebrity set to work on Solsticizing other ships, adding many of the same amenities. The new class of ship, the Solstice-class ships, are some of the most talked-about new ships in the industry, said Bill Walsh of Cruise Travel Outlet, in Salem, N.H.

Investing more than $120 million, Celebrity upgraded four of its Millennium-class ships: the Celebrity Constellation, the Celebrity Infinity, the Celebrity Summit and the Celebrity Millennium. The work, which incorporated many of the Solstice-class attributes across the fleet, was completed in less than two years. The Solstice-class vessels include a number of indulgent offerings, including the Lawn Club (a grass-covered escape resembling a backyard cookout space) and the Hot Glass Show (an outdoor glass-blowing studio created with the Corning Museum of Glass). Cruisers heading out to sea aboard one of this class or one of the newly upgraded ships can now take advantage of AquaClass staterooms spa-inspired with private verandas, complimentary access to the Persian Gardens Relaxation Room in the AquaSpa and access to specialty restaurants, one, in particular, serving healthy fare.

Guests staying in suites can also dine at Blu with an additional recommended gratuity of $5 per guest. The Solstice Class ships include a wide range of special dining options (for a $35-$45 surcharge) including Murano, traditional and elegant where youll find foie gras and escargot; Qsine, which fuses technology and an adventurous approach to dining; and the Tuscan Grille, an Italian steakhouse/wine cellar where cruisers can let down their hair a bit.

The event encouraged the use of seafood products, in Chinns case tuna and clams, certified by the Marine Stewardship Council and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council. Chinn prepared a dish using certified tuna caught using specially designed hooks which do not threaten endangered turtles. His menu also includes clams which have been farmed using environmentally friendly and sustainable methods. The pre-dominant message was overfishing, but the event also highlighted a problem facing Vietnamese consumers often aired in the local media. What Im experiencing as a chef of 18 years is I have no idea where any of the products are coming from. You can say the beef is from the U.S. and has a stamp on it but it might not be,” he said. “Recently in Vietnam we discovered that 80 percent of the noodles were laced with toxic chemicals to keep them white. So its really time for a change. Vietnam is one of the worlds top seafood exporters, with exports of catfish accounting for 90 percent of the global market. While not all exported goods are labeled with information which includes whether that product is certified or not, industry experts recognize that labels with more information are more popular with consumers, said Ngo.
