Celebrity Cruises has unveiled its first ever brand-designed cruise terminal, Terminal 25, located at Port Everglades in Hollywood, Florida.
Designed to complement the upcoming Celebrity Edge, T25 features cutting-edge technology and a sleek design, all crafted to create the ultimate guest experience.
Brought to life in collaboration with Broward County’s Port Everglades and seasoned architectural firm Bermello Ajamil & Partners, T25 melds a warm design with new technology.
T25 will also offer Suite Class guests a singular experience along the path to The Retreat, with an exclusive lounge, lobbies, screening areas and even a private rooftop terrace.
“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,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president, Celebrity Cruises.
“With cutting-edge technology, in service of a gorgeous design, T25 is that perfect new home.
“T25 also happens to be Celebrity Cruises’ first ever brand-designed cruise terminal, which not only represents a milestone for the brand, but also presented us with the opportunity to set yet another standard in design and create the perfect guest experience.”
T25 also features a 1,463 sq. ft. GKD Mediamesh that will wrap the terminal’s exterior, juxtaposing the more than 18,000 sq. ft. of outward facing glass, and the first purpose-built crew lounge of any Royal Caribbean Cruises terminal.
This crew lounge will have complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity, TV access, optimised storage, quiet places for employees and more.
Scheduled for completion in late October 2018, T25 will be the new home to many Celebrity ships during their winter deployment, including Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Silhouette.
Currently, Port Everglades welcomes on average approximately 335,000 Celebrity Cruises guests annually, representing about nine per cent of its overall passenger traffic.
Once the new cruise terminal is completed, it is anticipated that Celebrity Cruises will generate nearly 500,000 travellers at Port Everglades – representing no less than 14 per cent of the port’s projected passenger traffic.
