A steel cutting ceremony for the Celebrity Reflection was held at the Meyer-Werft Shipyard last week, when the first steel plate was cut for the new vessel. The ship will be the fifth and last of Celebrity’s very popular Solstice class, scheduled for delivery in November 2012.
Celebrity Reflection represents the culmination of the Solstice class, incorporating and expanding on the features that have been so well received by passengers. The ship, at 126,000 gross tons, will be the largest of the class. She’ll have an additional deck and 72 additional cabins, accommodating 3030 passengers at double occupancy. More than 90% of the cabins are outside, and approximately 90% of those will have balconies.
Among the highlights, the ship will feature 34 AquaClass Suites, measuring 251 square feet with a 57 square foot balcony. Michael’s Pub will be enhanced with the addition of up to 50 international craft beers, and outdoor grilling will be offered in the new Lawn Club Grill.
