Celebrity Cruises is celebrating this month as Australia’s youngest and highest rated superliner Celebrity Solstice turns five years old!

Celebrity Solstice was the first superliner of her kind. She revolutionised cruising when she was introduced in November 2008 with unique, never before CelebritySolstice_OperaHouse_RichardBirchseen at sea features including the including the Lawn Club, with half an acre of freshly manicured real grass on the upper decks; a glass-blowing studio from the famed Corning Museum of Glass; and 85 per cent of staterooms with their own private balcony – the highest ratio of any superliner in the world.

After debuting in the Caribbean and then the Mediterranean, Celebrity Solstice relocated to Australia and New Zealand in late 2012 – becoming the newest and highest rated cruise ship to be based in the region – and now spends her year between Australia (Oct-Apr) and Alaska (May-Sep).

Her popularity locally shows no sign of slowing when she returned to Sydney for her second season in October this year.  Birthday celebrations took place onboard her last cruise and will be followed later in November with another birthday party on her Lawn Club, attended by past passengers and Facebook fans.

To say a big thank you to all of the Aussies and Kiwis who have sailed on Celebrity Solstice to date, and to give an opportunity to all of those who are still dreaming of their first voyage onboard, Celebrity Cruises is having a 5th Birthday Sale offering special bonus discounts!
