Celebrity Silhouette Sailing from NJ to Southern Caribbean

For years, travel agents in the metro New York area have been asking the cruise lines for newer ships and new itineraries. How many times can New Englanders sail to Bermuda?

Well, Celebrity has answered us by not only being the first cruise line to put a brand new ship in New York but to finally have an itinerary that goes to islands that have never been sailed from New York!

Beginning in November, the Celebrity Silhouette will begin sailing 12 night Southern Caribbean Itineraries from Cape Liberty, NJ through April of 2012! There will be several itineraries, visiting such exotic islands as Antigua, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, St. Thomas, Labadee and San Juan, depending on the itinerary you choose. For years, getting to some of the locations required cruising from Florida or San Juan - and now you can visit them from New Jersey.

The Silhouette is a sister ship to the Solstice, Equinox and the Eclipse but with some exciting differences. Gone is the Glass Blowing Show and Museum and new will be the Lawn Club Grill and the Alcoves. The Lawn Club grill is an outdoor grill on the Lawn making your dining experience feel like you are dining in the Hamptons! The Alcoves are cabana type retreats for two to four guests that can be rented by the day or half day. You'll be able to enjoy a la carte food and beverages delivered in picnic baskets. They will even have wi-fi access!

Celebrity is one of the most elegant cruise lines with spectacular food. Celebrity is also one of the only cruise lines that offer Drink Packages that anyone can buy. On other lines, having a beverage package entailed booking a group with more than 50 people traveling that required everyone in the group purchase the package. Not on Celebrity! There are also non-alcholic packages for purchase that take care of all you can drink soda, bottles juices, fresh squeezed juices, premium and specialty non-alcoholic coffees, Evian and Pellegrino, Vitamin Water, Red Bull and Frozen Non Alcoholic Drinks.

If you'd like to see pictures of the Celebrity Solstice to get an idea of what the Silhouette will look like, take a look at the pictures we took when we sailed the Solstice.

Besides this exciting new ship, Celebrity also has some great specials on Caribbean and Europe sailings, with cruise credits for booking your trip and air with Choice Air for booking verandahs and suites.
