Celebrity Cruises Takes Possession of New Silhouette


On July 18, 2011, Celebrity Cruises took ownership of the new Celebrity Silhouette in a ceremony with representatives from the shipbuilder Meyer Werft.  Richard D.

The vessel is scheduled for an invitation-only naming ceremony and cruise from July 21 through July 23.  The inaugural sailing will include a seven night cruise on July 23, 2011 from Hamburg, Germany, Barcelona, Spain, and Rome, Italy.  Then she will be sailing Mediterranean/Holy Land roundtrips until November.

Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Silhouette to be named by travel industry executive Michelle Morgan

Michelle Morgan - Celebrity Silhouette Godmother
Today, Celebrity Cruises announced that Michelle Morgan, CTC, the highly regarded president and CEO of Signature Travel Network, will serve as Godmother of Celebrity Silhouette. The first travel industry executive to serve as Godmother of a Celebrity ship, Morgan will preside over the line’s first naming ceremony to be held in Hamburg, Germany, on July 21, 2011.

Like her mother – and each of Celebrity’s exceptional Solstice Class Godmothers – Morgan, too, has courageously battled breast cancer. She shares Celebrity Cruises’ devotion to the breast cancer cause, and leads Signature’s participation in the travel industry’s breast cancer awareness month in October.

“Michelle Morgan personifies all of the qualities we seek in our Solstice Class Godmothers: remarkable strength and courage in both her professional and personal life, along with optimism, warmth and a very engaging personality, all of which have made her so admired throughout the industry,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Dan Hanrahan.
