Celebrity Silhouette is a Solstice-class cruise ship currently operated by Celebrity Cruises, a subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

History

Celebrity Silhouette is the fourth ship in the Solstice class, following her sister ships, Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Equinox, Celebrity Eclipse, and preceding Celebrity Reflection. Solstice, Equinox, and Eclipse entered service in 2008, 2009, and 2010, respectively. Silhouette debuted in 2011, and Reflection, the final ship in the class, debuted in 2012.

Construction and delivery

In May 2007, Celebrity Cruises announced an order for the fourth Solstice-class ship, then unnamed, for a tentative Fall 2011 debut. The ship, at a guest capacity of approximately 2,850 passengers, was estimated to cost around $250,000 per berth, or roughly $712.5 million. The vessel's name, Celebrity Silhouette, was announced on 21 December 2009. On 29 May 2011, Celebrity Silhouette was floated out from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, and was delivered to Celebrity Cruises on 18 July 2011. She sailed to Hamburg for her naming ceremony on 21 July 2011, where Michelle Morgan, president and CEO of Signature Travel Network, officially christened the vessel.

Design specifications

Celebrity Silhouette is built to the same design as her preceding three Solstice-class sister ships, but carries slightly larger dimensions, being 400 tons larger, and six feet longer than her preceding sister ships. She is 319 metres (1,047 ft) in length overall, with a beam of 36.8 metres (121 ft), and a tonnage value of 122,400 gross tons. Upon completion, she had a capacity of 2,885 passengers.

Service history

Celebrity Silhouette was last refurbished during a 42-day dry dock that began in January 2020 at the Navantia shipyard in Cádiz. Among the changes were six new passenger cabins and new venues.

Deployments

On 23 July 2011, Celebrity Silhouette embarked on her maiden voyage to Barcelona, including a call in Rome, where she would begin cruising Mediterranean voyages for the rest of the summer season. Beginning in November 2011, she homeported in Bayonne, New Jersey at Cape Liberty Cruise Port, to operate 12-night Caribbean itineraries for her inaugural year.

Celebrity Silhouette is currently homeported at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and sails 9-day and 12-day Southern Caribbean itineraries. In summer 2020, she will cruise out of Southampton, sailing to Northern Europe and Iceland, before re-positioning to South America for her maiden season in the Southern Hemisphere, cruising along Brazil, Argentina, Peru, and Antarctica.
