Modern luxurybrand’s fifth stylish Solstice Class ship features all-glass shower


DUBAI – August 1, 2012 – After revealing in Aprilthat the “Reflection Suite” on Celebrity Cruises’ CelebrityReflection will feature an all-glass shower extending out over the edge ofthe ship, the modern luxury brand has received so much interest that it hasreleased renderings of the intriguing space.

But, if they seek even further privacy, the shower also features‘smart glass.’ At the flick of a switch, guests can activate anelectrochromatic technology which instantly transforms the glass fromtransparent to translucent.
