Celebrity Cruises 'Equinox' to Depart This Summer

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - Celebrity Equinox is the latest addition to the Solstice Class of ships from Celebrity Cruises (http://www.celebritycruises.co.uk/) and will be departing Rome in summer 2009. Whether you're new to cruising or an experienced cruiser, Celebrity Equinox is packed with the most innovative features, including an industry first on the top deck of the ship: real, growing grass.

With its decidedly Country Club ambience, the half-acre Lawn Club lets guests relax and enjoy a variety of casual outdoor activities on its magnificent, freshly manicured grass. There's absolutely nothing like it. At 2.4 times the size of Centre Court at Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Club, guests are invited to enjoy croquet, practice their golf putting, or have a picnic with a basket of wine and cheese, while sailing the oceans of the world.

Dan Hanrahan, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises said "We want our guests to experience the unexpected, like the thrill of sinking a putt on a freshly manicured lawn in the middle of the ocean. The experiences on and around the lawn exemplifies what we aim to achieve: to recognize, celebrate and indulge our guests in style."

The area also features the Hot Glass Show, another industry first developed by Celebrity Cruises and the Corning Museum of Glass. The dazzling and engaging Hot Glass Show allows guests to watch as professional glassblowers create gorgeous pieces of art in an interactive setting in a unique exhibition.

Other new features include ten dining venues offering trendsetting cuisine and design, spectacular new shows in partnership with Poet Theatricals, spacious staterooms and bathrooms, and several categories of accommodations, including Celebrity's new spa-inspired AquaClass staterooms.

Celebrity Cruises offers a premium cruise line that delivers a contemporary cruise experience amongst innovative design and decor, impeccable service and spa and dining options. Voted by readers of UK Conde Nast Traveller as The Best Large Cruise Line 2008. Celebrity Solstice will be joined by Celebrity Equinox in July 2009, Celebrity Eclipse in 2010 and a fourth Solstice-class ship in 2011.

Be one of the first to experience the Solstice Class onboard one of the three ships, Celebrity Eclipse sailing from Southampton in 2010, and with up to GBP400 off, there has never been a better time to sail with Celebrity Cruises.
