In 2008, Celebrity Cruises raised the bar for five-star cruising with the introduction of Celebrity Solstice, the first of their new class of 122,000-ton vessels. These innovative ships have become, among the mega-ships, the epitome of style and good taste.
Celebrity Silhouette, the penultimate in the five-ship series, joined the fleet this summer after a grand naming ceremony in Hamburg. At 14ft longer than her sisters, she also has a number of new features that improve the already high standard of facilities aboard these impressive vessels.
When Celebrity announced it was featuring a real grass lawn on its Solstice-class ships, the news was met with a great deal of scepticism. However, what has been done with the Lawn Club on Deck 15 is probably one of the most extraordinary features ever installed on a cruise ship.
