The Port of Le Havre shouldn’t get people’s hopes up! Mind you, in my previous blog I did have a question mark and say it was if. The itineraries have been announced for the 5th ship in the Solstice class and her maiden voyage if Amsterdam to Barcelona from the 12th October 2012. She then does a couple of cruises from the 21st until a repositioning to Miami on the 18th November then her Caribbean season begins with a 3 night to Nassau on the 5th December. It’s a shame but we never saw Solstice and won’t catch a glimpse of Silhouette either.
So what’s next for Celebrity? When the luxury line was originally created under Chandris (a fact now ignored onboard!) they had one ship, then built two and three. Only one of these remain (Century) but for how long before she’s shipped to Germany to become Mein Schiff 3? After RCCL bought them they ordered four and now we have five. Will the next have six????
