CELEBRITY SILHOUETTE DEPARTS UK SHORES FOR FIRST VOYAGE WITH BRAND NEW LOOK FOR LUXURY ‘STAYCATION’ SAILINGS
Sydney- Celebrity Cruises celebrated an historic milestone as Celebrity Silhouette departed her home port of Southampton, ready to welcome her first British guests in over 15 months and show off a new lavish multi-million pound bow to stern revitalisation.
The completion of the dramatic modernisation makes Celebrity Silhouette the fourth ship in Celebrity Cruises’ fleet to undergo the refit, known as The Celebrity Revolution – the brand’s more than $500 million investment in ship-wide upgrades and breath-taking reimagined spaces.
Celebrity Silhouette will spend the summer season embarking on a series of six-to-eight-night itineraries around Britain’s spectacular coastline. From greeting the sunrise with yoga on the open deck to whiling away the day on the ship’s half-acre lawn of real grass, guests will have the chance to truly relax and unwind after a challenging year.
Jo Rzymowska, Vice President and Managing Director EMEA, said: "After over a year away, it's a truly special feeling to be welcoming the beautiful Celebrity Silhouette back to UK shores. Our much anticipated summer season marks a real vote of confidence in the UK cruise industry and the excitement among crew and guests is palpable. Most importantly, we can't wait to treat our guests to the ultimate luxury staycation and give them the opportunity to relax and unwind while looking out at the stunning British coastline."
With her stunning new look, Celebrity Silhouette and her crew are ready to indulge guests in fantastic experiences, including:
Jo Rzymowska, Vice President and Managing Director EMEA Celebrity Cruises and Claire Stirrup, Director of Sales - Celebrity watching Silhouette's arrival into Southampton,
Sailings will host inspirational talks from Penny Mallory, the world’s first female World Rally Car for Ford in the World Rally Championship and Derek Redmond, one of Britain’s most recognised and determined athletes, renowned for completing the 400m semi-final with a broken hamstring at the 1992 Olympic Games, in spite of his injury.
Guests can cruise with confidence onboard, as the ship will sail with fully vaccinated crew and guests (aged 18 and over). Vaccinated guests also require proof of a negative PCR test taken up to or within three days of sailing. Guests aged 24 months to 17 years old will take an antigen test at the terminal prior to embarkation. The PCR and antigen tests required will be provided at the expense of Celebrity Cruises.
Alongside its vaccination and testing procedures, crew and guests will also be kept safe at sea with Celebrity Cruises’ app. Offering all the functionality required for a seamless onboard experience, guests can plan their holiday all from their smartphone - whether that’s booking one of the curated destination experiences or a delicious meal developed by Michelin-starred chefs.
