Celebrity Silhouette: The fourth ship in the Celebrity Solstice class joined the fleet in July 2011, filled with the amazing features and amenities that have made the Solstice Class so popular. But Celebrity have added even more. There’s the Lawn Club Grill, the first interactive barbecue restaurant afloat, where chefs share their cooking secrets.
Next is The Alcoves, where private cabana-style retreats overlook the lawns and passing oceans. Michael’s Club now showcases over 50 international beers in addition to rare malt whisky and cognac, while Hamptons-styled The Porch with its light contemporary décor is perfect for a casual breakfast or lunch. Then there’s The Hideaway, where you can relax in intimate lounging ‘nests’, and an Art Studio offering hands-on instruction from resident experts in drawing, painting, the culinary arts, and more.
Celebrity Reflection: In 2012, a final ship carrying all the same exciting innovations found on Celebrity Silhouette completed the Solstice Class. But again, Celebrity have taken it a step further with the addition of yet another deck. This feature has allowed the introduction of a brand new category of the spa-inspired AquaClass® – 34 luxurious suites, each boasting 251 sq. ft. of internal space complemented by stunning 57 sq. ft. balconies. Other enhancements include more seating in the dining rooms and more theatre seats.
The Med offers a treasure trove of discoveries. Let Celebrity lead the way on these adventures with Barcelona’s inspiring architecture, Naples fine art collection and the ancient Greek history of Athens all on offer. Or perhaps the Holy Land is more to your taste? Haifa and Ashdod is the gateway to Israel’s holy sites and Alexandria is where you can discover ancient Egypt.
All the ships in the Solstice Class are perfect for exploring the Fjords. Stopping at ports such as Bergen, Flam and Oslo, it’s the ideal way to come up close to Northern Europe.
