Alaska to get bigger Celebrity Cruises ship

Celebrity Cruises will expand capacity in Alaska in 2013 by sending one of its new Solstice Class ships to the state for the first time.

Celebrity CEO Dan Hanrahan told travel agents on Wednesday that the 3-year-old Celebrity Solstice — the first of five ships in the Solstice Class series — will take the place of the smaller, older Celebrity Infinity in Alaska during the summer of 2013.

The Celebrity Solstice will join the Celebrity Century and Celebrity Millennium in the state.

At 122,000 tons, the Celebrity Solstice is more than 30% larger than the Celebrity Infinity and has a capacity for 2,850 passengers at double occupancy– about 900 more than the Celebrity Infinity. The Celebrity Solstice also has more eateries and lounges than the Celebrity Infinity as well as a higher percentage of cabins with balconies.

“Celebrity Solstice is the ideal platform for a genuine modern luxury vacation in the gorgeous state of Alaska,” Hanrahan told travel agents in London. “The ship’s sheer beauty will perfectly complement the region’s incredible scenery.”

Hanrahan told travel agents that the Celebrity Infinity will be moving to Europe for the summer of 2013. Read more about what Celebrity plans in Europe.
