Celebrity Cruises Celebrates Winter Solstice Revealing Name of Fourth
Ship in Award-Winning Solstice Class
MIAMI, Dec 21, 2009
The word "silhouette" conjures up images of light and shadow, and
sleek profiles in the world of design and fashion, so it's fitting
that Celebrity Cruises has named the fourth ship in its stylish
Solstice Class fleet Celebrity Silhouette. And what better date to
announce it than on winter solstice?
Like its widely acclaimed sister ships - Celebrity Solstice, which was
named "Best Premium Ship" and "Best Rookie Ship" in Travel Weekly's
annual awards gala just last week; Celebrity Equinox, which set sail
in July 2009; and Celebrity Eclipse, which will enter service in April
2010 - the 122,000-ton Celebrity Silhouette will offer the series of
brand-defining, industry-first attributes that guests, travel agents
and press have praised about Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox,
including a half-acre Lawn Club with real grass, a glassblowing show
and studio developed with The Corning Museum of Glass, unrivaled
dining venues offering trendsetting cuisine and design, and widely
varied entertainment. Like its sisters, 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 accommodations, including Celebrity's ConciergeClass and
spa-inspired AquaClass staterooms.
"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," said
Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Dan Hanrahan. "The enormous
response to our unique new sweepstakes is a powerful indicator, too."
Cruise lovers interested in being among the very first to see
Celebrity Silhouette while under construction in Germany actually have
a chance. By entering Celebrity's "Eclipse of a Lifetime" sweepstakes,
running through January 14, 2010, 10 winners and their guests will be
the first individuals outside of the line's employees to board
Celebrity Eclipse when it sets sail for the very first time; the first
to have exclusive, up-close-and-personal views of the construction
process of Celebrity Silhouette at Meyer Werft, one of the most modern
shipyards in the world; first to be led and hosted throughout
Celebrity Eclipse by Celebrity's President and CEO Dan Hanrahan; first
to nestle into the ship's AquaClass staterooms; first to sample the
ship's innovative cuisine created by the line's VP of Culinary
Operations and Chef Jacques Van Staden, and the first to have the
chance to interact with the ship's senior officers.
To enter, visit the Celebrity web site, at www.celebritycruises.com
and click the "Eclipse of a Lifetime" tab to access the entry form and
sweepstakes rules. Or, click
www.celebritycruises.com/EclipseSweepstakes. The sweepstakes runs
through January 14, 2010. Winners will be announced January 28, 2010.
This sweepstakes is open only to residents of the U.S. and Canada. See
Official Rules on the site for complete information.

I kinda liked it.... thinking Silhouette from a celestial perspective...

in front of the planet's backlit rings viewed in silhouette...

Celebrity Silhouette - Guess this means the ship will be size zero.
