5+design was a key player on the design team behind the recently launched Celebrity Equinox, the second vessel in the Celebrity Class, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines' largest and most innovative ships.
When the Celebrity Solstice first launched in November of 2008, the new class quickly became the new benchmark for the industry.
With the design of the Equinox's retail armature, the main spine of the ship, which includes the Fortunes Casino, the Galleria Tastings wine and aperitif venue, the Art Gallery featuring an extensive on-board collection, and a two-level retail arcade, the 5+design team drew on their experience designing Solstice, observations on how people use the spaces, and guest feedback.
Yet, as designer Sharon Huang notes, "People are always excited to see new things on the next ship, our Equinox design reflects that understanding."
For Celebrity the Solstice Class of ships represents the most sophisticated and elegant manifestation of their brand, offering an exceptional range of services and amenities that bring the highest level of luxury, style, comfort and choice to its 2,850 guests.
That intense focus on the on-board guest experience is what shaped the design for 5+design as they collaborated with Celebrity's in-house team and five other internationally recognized design firms.
