Last week, Celebrity Cruises announced its new Suite Class, with VIP Lounge and private dining room, which takes after Cunard Line’s Grill Class, but also follows MSC’s “Yacht Club” and Norwegian Cruise Line’s “Haven” in the establishment of a new top class for cruisers. Illustrated is one of eight Royal Suites on board Celebrity Eclipse. And joining its upmarket sister line Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity will also make a number of overnight port stops in 2015 and 2016. Meanwhile, MSC Cruises has released some details on the lengthening of its four Lirica class ships. Finally this week, Hamburg-Süd has relaunched its container service between the US East Coast and Australia/New Zealand, a route that has carried passengers since 1963.
