Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises was excited about the changes that will be taking place on Celebrity Constellation.
“We are continually pushing the boundaries of the cruise experience, so we are adding some incredible new features to Celebrity Constellation. In addition to introducing the ever-popular restaurant Qsine, we are launching an entirely new culinary experience, Top Deck Burger Bar. On top of that, we’re also incredibly excited about the addition of our Rooftop Terrace and the iconic Taste of Film experience.”
