In light of the images of sun and shadow
conveyed in the names of Celebrity Cruises’ stylish Solstice Class
ships, the brand is marking autumnal equinox by announcing the
name of the fifth in its ‘Xceptional’ series: Celebrity
“Selecting the name of the fifth ship in the
class led us to reflect back on the significant impact the
Solstice Class has had on the cruise industry,” said Celebrity’s
President and CEO, Dan Hanrahan. “Our Solstice Class ships offer
the finest in premium cruising, with service provided by the best
men and women in the hospitality business, as evidenced by the
tremendous response from our guests, travel partners and the
press, and a continuously expanding series of prestigious awards.
There is no question that Celebrity Reflection will deliver an
equally outstanding vacation experience for our guests.”
Following delivery in November 2012, Celebrity
Reflection will join Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Equinox,
Celebrity Eclipse and Celebrity Silhouette, rounding out the
Celebrity Cruises sails in Alaska, Australia/New
Zealand, California, Canada/New England, Europe, Hawaii, the
Pacific Coast, Panama Canal, South America, and year-round in the
Caribbean and the Galapagos Islands.
Celebrity also offers immersive cruisetour
experiences in Alaska, Canada, Europe and South America.
Celebrity’s fleet currently consists of 10
ships. Its $3.7-billion investment in building five stylish
Solstice Class ships between 2008- 2012 represents one of the
largest five-year investments in premium cruising.
