Silhouette Sailaway – brand new game for travel agents

Celebrity Cruises is showcasing new ship Celebrity Silhouette with a fun online game for travel agents.

Accessible via e-learning website Cruising For Excellence at, the Silhouette Sailaway game takes players on a whistle-stop tour of the ship’s Holy Land itinerary with a series of challenges against the clock.

Players tackle a series of puzzle-based tests at each port of call, with each entry submitted to a real-time leaderboard. Top prize for the ultimate winner is a £300 luxury food hamper, with two £100 Love2Shop vouchers going to the runners-up.

Each level highlights the various features onboard Celebrity Silhouette, such as the new Lawn Club Grill – the cruise industry’s first outdoor interactive grill; the Alcoves – private cabanas overlooking a real grass lawn on the top deck; and the Art Studio – offering guests hands on interaction with Art experts and the chance to nurture their creative side under professional guidance.

Michael English, head of field sales, Celebrity Cruises explains:


“The recent successful relaunch of our award-winning agent training Cruising for Excellence Online clearly demonstrated that agents love to learn in a fun and interactive environment. We’ve rapidly followed the new training with yet another tool to make Celebrity Cruises even easier to sell. The new Silhouette Sailaway game not only brings to life key new features of the exciting ship, but also allows agents to do what they do best - get really competitive!”

Agents can see where they rank on the leaderboard and can pit their wits against the game as many times as they like to rise up the rankings before the closing date of 5 August 2011. The game can also be found on the Cruising Power website - - alongside the latest training tools and information about the ship.

Celebrity Silhouette will offer 12-night cruises from Rome (Civitavecchia) to the Holy Land calling at Santorini and Athens (Piraeus) in Greece and Haifa and Jerusalem (Ashdod) in Israel amongst other destinations. Prices start from £1,199 per person including return flights from the UK and all meals and entertainment onboard based on 22 August 2011 departure. Alongside the brand new features, the ship will also feature designer boutiques, exclusive restaurants and an Apple dedicated internet café – the Celebrity iLounge - offering guests classes in using iPads and iPhones.
