We at Charlotte’s VVeb have been keeping a watchful eye over the cruise market recently and were excited to hear that 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, the 2,886-guest Celebrity Silhouette will be launched 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 German yard, and the first in its class to be officially named in Germany.
Guests eager to experience Celebrity Silhouette can book a place on its inaugural cruise, a seven-night cruise to Rome departing Hamburg on 23 July from £1,194.00 per person.
Celebrity Silhouette will offer new venues including: The Lawn Club Grill – the industry’s first outdoor, interactive grill restaurant; The Porch – offering quick, simple, casual and complimentary breakfasts and lunches with views of the lawn and sea; The Art Studio – a space within The Lawn Club where experienced and aspiring artists can participate in hands-on instruction from experts in drawing, painting and beading, as well as food plating, tastings, mixology and other culinary-themed classes; The Alcoves – a private retreat overlooking the lawn, featuring eight cabana-style settings, each designed for two to four guests; and The Hideaway, a high-tech, treehouse-like spot for guests relaxing with their Apple iPads or perhaps reading a good book within cozy, intimate lounging “nests”. We’re certainly eager to take a look around!
