Celebrity's Silhouette: Truth is Out

Confession time. For many weeks, those of us who write about cruising and cruise ships have been saying the next big ship to arrive will be Celebrity’s Silhouette. It wasn’t true. Today it is. Yesterday, the keys to the Silhouette were turned over to Celebrity, and just like that Celebrity officially became the owner.

Presumably, a few pennies were turned over to the old owners, to complete the transaction.

It’s a moot point, of course, but until yesterday the Silhouette belonged to Meyer Werft, the shipbuilding company that put her together. Tomorrow she leaves Hamburg on a 2-day cruise to show her stuff to the media and industry reps. Among them is our colleague Phil Reimer, from Ports and Bows.

Wonder if he’s confessed, too.
