Celebrity Cruises' employees and other South Florida residents turned out Monday morning to greet Celebrity Solstice as the ship begins its U.S. debut. The sleek, 122,000-ton ship includes the industry’s first half-acre Lawn Club with real grass and Hot Glass Show with live glassblowing demonstrations; 10 varied restaurants; truly unique entertainment expressly designed for the ship's state-of-the-art theater, and a breadth of accommodations, including an entirely new category, AquaClass. Amidst a series of preview cruises for invited travel agents, press and other dignitaries, Celebrity Solstice will be named in formal ceremonies Nov 14, and will enter service Nov 23 on a series of 7-night Eastern Caribbean sailings.
