Celebrity Cruises begins Solstice construction

Date Posted: 16 Oct 2006

Celebrity Cruises has announced that it has taken a further step to bring the new Celebrity Solstice ship to life.

Set to be launched in the autumn of 2008, the start button on the plasma cutter at the German ship yard charged with building Celebrity Solstice was pressed last week, producing the first steel plate for use in the ship's construction.

"This is a very exciting day for the Celebrity brand, as we take the first tangible step toward making Celebrity Solstice a reality," said Celebrity Cruises President Dan Hanrahan.

"While it's too soon to reveal any details, I'm convinced our travel agent partners and guests are going to find this ship to be the perfect manifestation of what they appreciate most about Celebrity."

The 2,850-guest ship will be the first of three Solstice-size vessels planned by Celebrity Cruises to be built over the next few years.

Larger standard staterooms, a higher percentage of verandas, and a fantastic range of services and amenities will all feature on the Solstice-class ships.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
