new ship Celebrity Equinox is to make its US debut with a special four-night cruise, it has emerged.
The vessel will arrive in Fort Lauderdale in November following its eagerly anticipated hyphen inaugural season in Europe.
Dan Hanrahan, president and chief executive of the cruise line, said that Celebrity Solstice had been well received by guests and travel partners since it was launched in November 2008.
"We're confident Celebrity Equinox will meet with equally glowing reviews and think there's no better way to introduce her in the US than with a four-night Solstice Class sampler," he commented.
Celebrity Cruises sails to various destinations including Alaska, Europe, Hawaii, the Pacific Coast and the Panama Canal.
The cruise line will be sending four ships to Europe for the summer of 2010, which are due to make a total of 76 transatlantic crossings.
