Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 28 January 2011

Celebrity Silhouette, the newest addition to Celebrity Cruises Solstice class family, will be officially named in Hamburg, Germany, this summer.

Built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, the 2,886-guest Celebrity Silhouette will be introduced to the world on 21 July 2011, with formal naming ceremonies that will kick off a two-night preview cruise for invited travel agents, press and other dignitaries.

Celebrity Silhouette is the fourth Solstice Class ship in a series of five built at the sixth-generation, family-owned German yard renowned for its commitment to excellence, and the first in its class to be officially named in Germany.

We are so honored that Germany will be the first country outside of the United States or the United Kingdom to host the naming of a Solstice Class ship, said Tom Fecke, General Manager, RCL Cruises Ltd., Germany. This is a clear commitment not only to the German cruise market, but also to the growing interest in the Celebrity Cruises brand, which continues to evolve and attract affluent vacationers. Hamburg, with its strong cruising tradition and appeal, provides an ideal setting, and we are very much looking forward to the celebration of the launch of this stunningly beautiful new ship.

Vacationers eager to experience Celebrity Silhouette can book its inaugural cruise of 23 July 2011, a seven-night cruise to Rome.

Following a Rome-focused two-night preview cruise for invited members of the travel industry and the media, the ship will introduce a series of 12 and 13-night Holy Land sailings roundtrip from Rome.

Beginning this November, Celebrity Silhouette will be the first Solstice Class ship to present cruises from Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey, bringing the Solstice Classs award-winning style and design to the greater New York City area.

Celebrity Silhouette will offer significantly expanded onboard opportunities for vacationers to enjoy their precious vacation time. New venues will include:

- The Lawn Club Grill an outdoor, interactive grill restaurant

- The Porch, offering quick, simple, casual and complimentary breakfasts and lunches against a backdrop of views of the lawn and sea

- The Art Studio, a space within The Lawn Club where guests can participate in intimate, hands-on instruction from experts in drawing, painting and beading, as well as the art of food, with plating, tastings, mixology and other culinary-themed classes

- The Alcoves, a private retreat overlooking the lawn, ocean and coastlines, featuring eight exclusive, cabana-style settings, each designed for two to four guests

- The Hideaway, a high-tech, avant-garde treehouse-like spot for vacationers relaxing with their Apple iPads or perhaps reading a good book within cozy, intimate lounging nests.
