Celebrity Cruises have announced that Celebrity Silhouette will be based in Southampton for 2018 instead of her popular sister, Celebrity Eclipse, which will in turn operate a mini season in Dublin before operating cruises out of Amsterdam and then Barcelona.
It is an interesting move by Celebrity Cruises as Celebrity Eclipse has been a popular ship sailing out of Southampton for the past 8 summer seasons.
Celebrity Silhouette will undertake seven- and eight-night Norwegian Fjord sailings; seven 14-night Scandinavia and Russia sailings on three different itineraries and 14-night Mediterranean, Canaries and Azores, and Iceland and Ireland sailings from her time based from Southampton.
Celebrity Eclipse will operate out of Dublin from April through to June and will offer a 10 night Ireland and Iceland itinerary and an 8 night Norwegian Fjords cruise.
She will then depart for Amsterdam in late June 2018 where she will operate 12 night itineraries around the UK and 12 night Scandinavia and Russia sailings. She will then relocate to Barcelona in September operating 12 night Western Mediterranean and 12 night Italy and Greek Isles itineraries.
