Celebrity Silhouette Makes Her First Public Appearance

It was just a little over a year ago that Cruise Diva boarded Celebrity Eclipse for her "conveyance" journey up the River Ems from the Meyer Werft Shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Before embarking, the small group of guests on hand for for the trip were invited inside the shipyard to take part in the first steel cutting of the next ship in the Solstice-class series, Celebrity Silhouette.

And now, the sleek silhouette of Celebrity Cruises' new Celebrity Silhouette has emerged from the same shipyard, where numerous area residents lined up to be among the first to see the fourth in Celebrity's stylish, five-ship Solstice-class fleet up close. And it is a tight squeeze as she makes her way up the river backwards—because the ship cannot be turned around at the shipyard.

Celebrity Silhouette sets sail in July of this year with a host of industry-first venues and experiences within The Lawn Club, including the interactive "Lawn Club Grill," where guests can select and grill their own meats side-by-side with Celebrity's expert chefs, or have them cooked to order; the relaxing, private, wi-fi-equipped cabanas called "The Alcoves"; "The Porch," a breezy, casual dining spot offering sandwiches, coffees and captivating views of the sea and the ship's lush lawn, and "The Art Studio," where vacationers can bring out their inner artist. The ship also will present another entirely new venue, "The Hideaway," an intimate, quiet space reminiscent of a childhood tree house.

That's the steel cutting of Celebrity Silhouette pictured here—pretty amazing that it's now a nearly-complete ship—but even more amazing is the trip up the River Ems. Re-live a "Conveyance" Journey by setting sail with Cruise Diva on the conveyance of Celebrity Eclipse, the third Solstice-class ship in the Celebrity Cruises fleet.
