Celebrity Cruises debuts new ship this summer

Premium cruise brand Celebrity Cruises is kicking off a consumer-focused sweepstakes today, offering one lucky winner the opportunity to be part of its newest ship’s history. In anticipation of the launch of the 2,886-guest Celebrity Silhouette in Europe this summer, the “Silhouette Debut” sweepstakes will offer one grand prize winner a trip for two to experience the ship’s official two-night naming ceremony cruise - an experience that cannot be purchased - and the ship’s inaugural voyage from Hamburg, Germany to Rome, Italy.

The full grand prize package consists of coach-class airfare to Hamburg and from Rome; accommodations in a luxurious Celebrity suite on both the two-night naming cruise previewing the ship for invited press, travel agents and dignitaries on July 21, 2011 and the ship’s inaugural voyage from Hamburg to Rome on July 23; a total of $300 credit to enjoy a spa treatment, specialty dining or shore excursion while on the inaugural voyage; and ground transportation.

The Silhouette Debut sweepstakes also offers participants an opportunity to win one of five iPads (five first prizes) or one of five Riedel Vinum wineglass tasting sets (five second prizes).

Celebrity Silhouette will offer significantly expanded onboard opportunities for vacationers to enjoy their precious vacation time. New venues that will debut on Celebrity Silhouette will highlight some of the premium brand’s most compelling characteristics, offering unique experiences focused on the culinary arts, ways to relax and enjoy stylish surroundings at sea, and engaging, enriching onboard activities.
