Celebrity Cruises is gearing up for its biggest season ever in Europe. Five ships, including the new Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox, will offer more itineraries in Europe than ever before for Celebrity Cruises.
Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox will boast some great features, including staterooms and bathrooms that are quite a bit larger than on comparable ships; more than a dozen dining venues, including five alternative restaurants; and new AquaSpa cabins.
The new ships also will showcase a half-acre Lawn Club with real grass, and a glassblowing show and studio developed with The Corning Museum of Glass.
The 2,850-guest vessels will feature staterooms 15 percent larger than those on previous Celebrity ships, 90 percent of which will be outside, and 85 percent of all staterooms will have verandas.
Innovative cabin design for some categories allows families and couples traveling together to have separate cabin entrances as well secondary entrance doors that convert the cabins into a two bedroom/two bathroom configuration.
Celebrity Solstice will enter service in November, offering seven-night cruises roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, with visits to San Juan, Puerto Rico; Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts, before crossing the Atlantic for its inaugural season in Europe, where it will be joined by sister ship Celebrity Equinox.
