back to overview

First Ship Featuring an Open-Air Grill and Real Grass Lawn Eemshaven/Papenburg, 18 July 2011 - Today MEYER WERFT delivered the 122,000-gt Celebrity Silhouette to Celebrity Cruises (Miami, USA) in the Dutch port of Eemshaven. The Celebrity Silhouette is the fourth ship out of a series of five cruise ships the shipyard is building for Celebrity Cruises. MEYER WERFT and Celebrity Cruises have developed and built another extremely eco-friendly ship. Highly energy-efficient systems, a solar power system, optimised hydrodynamics, a very efficient underwater hull coating and an energy-saving lighting system using LEDs cut back the ship's energy demand considerably.

The Celebrity Silhouette can accommodate 2,886 passengers, who are taken care of by a crew of 1,271. Upon her naming ceremony in Hamburg on 21 July 2011, she will start her maiden voyage to Barcelona via Civitavecchia/Rome on 23 July 2011.
