Celebrity Cruises Offered Deep Discounts On New Celebrity Silhouette

Celebrity Cruises is the latest in a string of cruise ship companies to launch a big and beautiful new cruise ship, with their new Celebrity Silhouette ship, which has yet to set sail.  But that didn’t stop Celebrity Cruises from launching a huge sale ahead of the launch.

Celebrity Cruises ran a 3 day sale offering 65% off the regular rate on a 12 night Silhouette cruise, bringing prices down to a very manageable “starting from” rate of $799 per person.  Unfortunately the 3 day event ended  on May 12.  The company isn’t saying publicly whether the sale was a success, not commenting on the number of cabins booked on the Celebrity Silhouette during this 3 day sales event.

The company also lowered the amount required for a deposit, on sailings between August 10th and October 10th.

The Celebrity Silhouette is part of Celebrity’s Solstice class of cruise vessels and will officially launched and named on July 21, 2011 in Germany.  The first passengers on the Celebrity Silhouette will cruise for seven nights beginning in Civitavecchia, Italy staring July 23, 2011.

The Celebrity Silhouette will offer Caribbean cruises out of Bayonne, NJ on the Hudson River this fall, beginning in November 2011.

Celebrity Cruises is also in the news this past week, on a more serious note, as a 65 year old woman went missing from the Celebrity Millennium  early Tuesday.  She was reported missing when she did not report for customs in San Diego, California.  She is still missing.
