    Celebrity Cruises' Eagerly Anticipated Celebrity Equinox to Soft-Launch In Norwegian Fjords

    http://www.celebritycruises.com/abou...equence_code=A

    Miami - (February 18, 2009 ) - Amidst ongoing rave reviews of its new Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Cruises today announced that the pace of construction of sister ship Celebrity Equinox is proceeding so well, the cruise line will offer a soft launch prior to the ship's maiden voyage of August 8.

    The eagerly anticipated Celebrity Equinox will now present a cruise departing July 31 through the majestic Norwegian Fjords, roundtrip from Southampton, England.

    Celebrity paired the news with a special offer to guests booked on Celebrity Equinox's inaugural sailing of August 8, inviting them to combine their 10-night "Best of Europe" cruise with the 8-night soft launch, for a spectacular 18-night voyage on the new ship. Guests capitalizing on the opportunity will receive an onboard credit of $200 per stateroom or $300 per suite. The 8-night cruise through the Norwegian Fjords features visits to Stavanger, Flam, Geiranger, and Oslo, Norway. The 10-night maiden voyage, which will include an inaugural gift and commemorative activities, will visit Paris/Normandy (via Le Havre) and Cherbourg, France; Vigo, Cartagena and Barcelona, Spain; Lisbon, Portugal, and Gibraltar, UK, ending in Rome (via Civitavecchia), Italy.

    Guests on every sailing of Celebrity Equinox will experience the series of brand-defining, industry-first attributes that guests, travel agents and press have praised about Celebrity Solstice, including a half-acre Lawn Club with real grass, a glassblowing show and studio developed with The Corning Museum of Glass, unrivaled dining venues offering trendsetting cuisine and design, and widely varied entertainment, including spectacular new shows in partnership with Poet Theatricals. The 2,850-guest vessel also will have spacious staterooms and bathrooms, and several categories of accommodations, including Celebrity's new, spa-inspired AquaClass staterooms.

    Bookings are now open for the new 8-night cruise on Celebrity Equinox.

        Trio of Solstice ships to sail Europe in 2010

        Celebrity Solstice and the upcoming Celebrity Equinox and Celebrity Eclipse are scheduled to ply European waters in 2010. As earlier reported, Celebrity Eclipse debuts next year as Celebrity Cruises’ first primarily-UK-sourced vessel.

        The Solstice trio will be joined by Celebrity Constellation.

        Celebrity opened its 2010 Europe and trans-Atlantic cruises and cruise-tours for sale today. US and Canadian customers who book by June 10, 2009, are eligible for a $100 on-board credit per stateroom.

        Celebrity Constellation will sail 12-night Scandinavia and Russia and seven-night Mediterranean sailings. Celebrity Eclipse, the first Celebrity ship to be homeported in England, will offer a varied lineup of new 11-night and longer cruises to the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea and the Canary Islands.

        Celebrity Equinox will sail 12-night voyages throughout the Mediterranean, and Celebrity Solstice will offer 10- and 11-night Eastern Mediterranean as well as 13-night Holy Land cruises.

        Pre-cruise escorted land tours ranging from three to five nights are available.

        Celebrity’s 2010 Europe lineup reflects several differences from the line’s 2009 offerings. Notably, Celebrity Constellation will take over Celebrity Century’s 2009 routes, and Celebrity Equinox will sail the 12-night voyages between Barcelona and Venice offered on Celebrity Summit this year.

            You know the Equinox is to big for me. I was in Emden and Borkum for a visit of two old lightships and the shipyard was on my way. Is someone here who like this ship? Or someone who loves lightships?

              Thank you so very much for those pictures of Equinox... she has a nice profile, BUT, as so many others coming out these years, she is a bit too large.

              Her stern is rather interesting and fits the vessel nicely. I wonder how long time it'll take before they add more penthouse and balconies on the stern of that ship....

              It's really easy to see that she is a larger sized VISTA -class...
