Celebrity Cruises has chosen the winter solstice as the date to announce the name of the fourth ship in its Solstice-Class fleet Celebrity Silhouette.
Like its widely acclaimed sister ships – Celebrity Solstice; Celebrity Equinox, which set sail in July 2009 and Celebrity Eclipse, which will enter service in April 2010 – the 122,000-GRT
Celebrity Silhouette will offer the shared brand-defining, industry-first attributes that guests, travel agents and press have praised including a half-acre Lawn Club with real grass, a glassblowing show and studio developed with The Corning Museum of Glass, unrivalled dining venues and widely varied entertainment. Like its sister ships, the 2,850-guest Celebrity Silhouette will have larger staterooms – 90 percent outside and 85 percent with verandas – and spacious bathrooms, as well as several categories of accommodation, including Celebrity’s ConciergeClass and the spa-inspired AquaClass staterooms.
Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Dan Hanrahan said: “Countless guests and travel partners have asked us to reveal the ship’s name over the past few months, which is yet another indicator of the widespread interest in these stunningly designed ships.”
