In another first for Celebrity Cruises, the line unveiled its first ever brand-designed cruise terminal, Terminal 25, located at Port Everglades in Hollywood, Fla. Celebrity will use Terminal 25, known as T25, as its home for the new Celebrity Edge when it arrives in November.
T25 features cutting-edge technology and a sleek design, all crafted to create the ultimate guest experience. It will have a 1,463-square-foot GKD Mediamesh electronic LED sign that will wrap the terminal’s exterior, identifying it as Celebrity’s.
In collaboration with Broward County’s Port Everglades and architectural firm Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Inc., T25 melds a warm design with unique technology – including Frictionless Arrival, which will make the check-in process seamless, and an interactive light wall art installation.
“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 and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “With cutting-edge technology, in service of a gorgeous design, T25 is that perfect new home.”
T25 will offer Suite Class guests an exclusive lounge, elevator lobbies, screening areas and even a private rooftop terrace. It will also feature a crew lounge, an industry first, that will have complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity, TV access, and private lounge areas.
“This is the largest financial investment that Port Everglades has made in a cruise terminal, and we fully anticipate that Terminal 25’s iconic design will be a showcase for Broward County and Celebrity Cruises, ” said Broward County Mayor Beam Furr.
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. When Celebrity is not using T25, the facility will be open to other cruise lines.
