Celebrity Silhouette To Be Named in Hamburg
Celebrity Silhouette, the newest addition to Celebrity Cruises Solstice class family, will make history this summer when it is officially named in Hamburg, Germany.
Built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, the 2,886-guest Celebrity Silhouette will be introduced to the world on July 21, 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 German yard renowned for its commitment to excellence, and the first in its class to be officially named in Germany.
Holiday makers eager to experience Celebrity Silhouette can book its inaugural cruise departing July 23, a seven-night cruise to Rome, followed by a series of 12- and 13-night Holy Land sailings roundtrip from Rome.
Celebrity Silhouette will offer significantly expanded onboard opportunities for her guests to enjoy. New venues that will debut on Celebrity Silhouette will highlight some of the premium brand's most compelling characteristics, offering unique experiences focused on the culinary arts, ways to relax and enjoy stylish surroundings at sea, and engaging, enriching onboard activities.
