Celebrity Cruises Orders Solstice-Class Ship

Tuesday, February 26, 2008
Celebrity Cruises, a subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, has ordered a fifth big cruise liner from Meyer Werft in Papenburg. The previous contracts for four ships of the Solstice class are now followed by a pre-contract for the construction of a fifth cruise ship. Delivery of the fifth ship is scheduled for the autumn of 2012. The first ship of this class, the Celebrity Solstice, will be delivered in the autumn this year. The other ships will follow at one-year intervals each.

The 122,000-gt ships for Celebrity Cruises will have a length overall of 315 m and a breadth of 36.8 m. 2,850 passengers will be accommodated in 1,425 cabins. All standard cabins will offer more space than is usual for this type. More than 90% of all cabins are outside cabins, 90% of which have their own balconies. Other architectural highlights of the new ship will be the Lawn Club featuring natural lawn, the Corning Museum of Glass where the art of glassblowing is presented, and a couple of different restaurants.

Meyer Werft already built five cruise ships for Celebrity Cruises in the early and mid-1990s.
