Celebrity Cruises Welcomes New Infinity

Monday, February 26, 2001
Celebrity Cruises has accepted delivery of Infinity, the newest addition to the premium cruise line's award-winning fleet. The 1,950-guest Infinity arrived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, last night, on the heels of its transatlantic crossing from shipyard Chantiers de l'Atlantique, in St. Nazaire, France.

Among the compelling elements of Celebrity's Infinity is the industry's first full conservatory at sea, created for Celebrity Cruises by prominent Paris-based floral designer Emilio Robba.

Another hallmark of Celebrity's Infinity is an exclusive, historic maritime treasure. Accenting the interior of the ship's "SS United States" specialty restaurant are actual glass panels from the SS United States cruise ship, which launched in 1952 and gained fame for clocking the fastest transatlantic crossing from New York.

The SS United States restaurant is Celebrity's second specialty restaurant to recapture the atmosphere of its namesake. Celebrity's Millennium, the first in Celebrity's Millennium-class fleet, features "The Olympic" restaurant, the design of which stemmed from a rare collection of wood paneling that once graced the first-class dining room onboard the glamorous R.M.S. Olympic.

Celebrity's Infinity this week will take on provisions in Fort Lauderdale and complete a series of U.S. Coast Guard inspection activities before embarking on its maiden voyage, a 14-night trans-canal cruise departing Fort Lauderdale on March 3, concluding in San Diego, California.

Celebrity has planned Infinity inaugural activities on April 28 and 29, in San Diego and Los Angeles, respectively. Celebrity's festivities in Los Angeles will include the ship's formal naming ceremony.
