When Celebrity Cruises first debuted Celebrity Solstice, the first of the Solstice-series ships, a variety of travel firsts came to be. Solstice was the first ship to have a real grass lawn at sea, plus the first to have a hot glass class onboard.
Five innovative ships later, our Solstice-series ships continue to provide a casually elegant atmosphere with an emphasis on innovation, pampering, and fun.
We’re elevating and modernizing every aspect of our fleet as part of the Celebrity Revolution, which is a $500 million dollar effort to propel our ships into the future. With ships like Edge and Apex leading the way, Celebrity Solstice-series ships are next in line for reimagined restaurants, new technology across the ship, and an enhanced experience at The Retreat®.
Use this guide to our Solstice-series ships to help you choose your next luxury getaway.
Solstice is the first of the series, with its inaugural sailing in November 2008. Celebrity Solstice sails to stunning destinations in Australia, New Zealand, and Alaska, making it the perfect choice for adrenaline seekers and eco-tourists who want to experience active glaciers, awe-inspiring fjords, and unique wildlife.
Eighty percent of the staterooms on Celebrity Solstice come equipped with a private veranda, where you’ll experience unparalleled comfort without ever leaving your room.
Menus designed by a Michelin-starred chef, four specialty restaurants like Murano and Tuscan Grille, a dozen bars and lounges, and hot glass blowing classes keep you enthralled on board between experiences like snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef or cruising past New Zealand’s Milford Sound.
The inaugural sailing of Celebrity Equinox in August 2009 ushered in a new wave of premium cruising.
Revolutionized back in July 2019, Equinox is outfitted with the best creature comforts, from cashmere bedding to intuitive suite and stateroom service.
Equinox is your ticket to dozens of islands in the Caribbean. Caribbean cruise itineraries transport you to historic sights in Mexico, sun-soaked beaches in Grand Cayman, and kitschy fun in Key West, Florida. See the massive dual Pitons of St. Lucia or lounge on colorful Grenada’s beaches.
Equinox also launched new Camp at Sea programs, like STEM at Sea in partnership with the Frost Science Museum. Family vacations with the kids are even better with built-in activities and learning for kids ages 3 to 17.
Adults can keep learning, too, with demonstrations by expert sommeliers and hot glass experts.
Celebrity Eclipse had its inaugural sailing in 2010 and has earned accolades ever since, including seven consecutive years of “Best Dining Onboard” by Travel Age West.
Like Solstice, Eclipse sails to far-flung destinations like Alaska, New Zealand, and Australia. Experience hidden gems and natural wonders in stunning locales all while indulging in the luxurious amenities and experiences onboard.
Take a hot glass class or soak in the hot tub. Watch mixologists shake up the perfect martini, or see an evening show at Eclipse Theatre.
Savor an incredible five-course meal designed by Global Culinary Brand Ambassador, Chef Daniel Boulud. Head to sleek spaces like Passport Bar, Martini Bar, or World Class Bar for an after-dinner digestif, or just to keep the evening going.
Revolutionized in February 2020, Celebrity Silhouette provides the same premium comfort in reimagined staterooms and suites, atmospheric venues inspired by global travels, and fine dining experiences that you’d find on other ships like Equinox.
Silhouette makes a vacation to Europe or South America unforgettable. See Iceland’s breathtaking fjords in Norway. Crane up at iconic windmills in Amsterdam. Experience St. Petersburg, Russia’s most historic sights and palaces.
On a cruise to South America, experience the vibrant capital of Argentina, lounge on famous beaches in Brazil, or cruise to the ends of the earth in Antarctica.
Rounding out the Celebrity Solstice-series ships is Celebrity Reflection. Since its inaugural sailing in 2012, Reflection is officially the youngest of this series. Celebrity Reflection’s itineraries offer a little something for everyone, sailing to diverse destinations in the Caribbean and Europe.
Reflection is full of the dining and entertainment options you know and love, like Chef’s Table by Chef Daniel Boulud, Lawn Club Grill, the interactive and immersive Le Petit Chef, and more.
