Celebrity Cruises has revealed details for its revolutionary new cruise terminal located in Port Everglades, Florida. This sleek new facility will be ready for the cruise line’s new class cruise ship named Celebrity Edge.
The line’s first ever brand-designed terminal called T25 will be sophisticated and modern bringing design elements and inspiration to guests beginning their cruise. Developing T25 is in collaboration with Broward County’s Port Everglades and seasoned architectural firm Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Inc.
Checking in will be a breeze for everyone and guests will be welcomed with an interactive light wall art installation. It gets even better for Suite class guests as they will experience a retreat lounge just for them. The lounge will keep the experiences relaxed and smooth.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises, said:
“When designing the revolutionary Celebrity Edge, we knew we wanted to design a terminal that perfectly complemented the ship and matched its one-of-a-kind experience.”
“With cutting-edge technology, in service of a gorgeous design, T25 is that perfect new home. T25 also happens to be Celebrity’s first ever brand-designed cruise terminal, which not only represents a milestone for Celebrity, but also presented us with the opportunity to set yet another standard in design and create the perfect guest experience.”
T25 will not just look sleek on the inside but also on the outside. There will be a 1,463 sq. ft. GKD Mediamesh that will wrap the terminal’s exterior and more than 18,000 sq. ft. of outward facing glass. What we really like and what’s deserved is a dedicated crew lounge within the building offering crew members complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity, TV access, optimized storage, quiet places and more. While we’re on the topic Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line recently announced free internet for all crew members.
The new Celebrity Cruise terminal is scheduled to be completed in October 2018 and many Celebrity cruise ships will use it including Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Silhouette. When the cruise line isn’t using the facility it will be used by other cruise lines.
