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 my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
