Move over sister! Celebrity Silhouette sails into Southampton for first UK season

The 2,886-guest Celebrity Silhouette sailed into Southampton at the crack of dawn this morning to prepare for her first summer season sailing from the UK.

She replaces older sister Celebrity Eclipse which has sailed from Southampton for eight summers since her launch in 2010 and has now moved to Dublin for summer 2018.

Celebrity Silhouette includes many of Eclipse’s guest favourites, such as the on-board real grass lawn and a spectacular wine tower spanning two decks.

In addition, holidaymakers can relax in The Alcoves, eight cabana-style retreats on The Lawn Club atop the ship, which also offers alfresco dining at The Lawn Club Grill – where you can either step up to the plate and become a master on the barbecue or sit back and relax to enjoy dinner a la carte, with waiter service.

Jo Rzymowska, vice president and managing director of Celebrity Cruises, UK, Ireland and Asia, said today: “It’s a huge summer for Celebrity Cruises; along with Celebrity Eclipse sailing out of Dublin, this year marks our biggest ever UK and Ireland deployment.

“We are excited to bring Celebrity Silhouette to Southampton, offering guests new luxurious experiences to try out on their holidays. Dinner alfresco at The Lawn Club Grill is one of my personal favourites while sailing on the ocean on Celebrity Silhouette.”

Following a two-night sailing to Paris (La Havre, France), Celebrity Silhouette will offer eight- to 14-night holidays to European destinations including the Canary Islands, Spain, Italy, the Norwegian Fjords and Iceland.
