Two new cruise ships under construction; two new videos to whet customers’ appetiters and no doubt stimulate advance bookings.
First up (above) is Celebrity Reflection, the fifth and final vessel in the successful and sophisticated Solstice class, but with an extra deck of cabins, including some super-swish suites that feature ocean-view showers.
The ship is nearing completion under cover in Germany, and should be leaving the shipyard in October. Watch carefully as the video shows sister ship Celebrity Silhouette’s Lawn Club Grill and you’ll even catch a glimpse of yours truly at the barbecue.
No sign of me in the second video, marking the planned launch of Royal Princess a year from now. Princess executives, employees and regular passengers are asked what they are most looking forward to seeing on the 3,600-passenger vessel.
The huge piazza at the centre of the ship and the unique Sky Walk and Sky View Bar at the top seem to top the list of highlights.
