Unveiled in July 2011, the 2,886 passenger Celebrity Silhouette is the fourth of five “Solstice Class” ships that Celebrity Cruises began rolling out in 2008. Like three earlier sisters — the Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Eclipse and Celebrity Equinox — the Celebrity Silhouette is 13 decks high and measures 122,000 gross-register tons. The Solstice Class ships are the biggest ever at the line. The vast majority of Celebrity Silhouette’s 1,443 cabins (85%) come with balconies.
