Celebrity Cruises To Base Two Ships in the UK in 2013, at Southampton and Harwich, Giving Them a Fleet of Six Ships in Europe

Celebrity Cruises was delighted to be able to tell us today that due to the award-winning success of Celebrity Eclipse from Southampton, they’re adding a second ship, Celebrity Infinity, which will operate out of the port of Harwich from May 2013.

Celebrity Infinity has just had a makeover to bring her up to “Solstice” class standards and will offer an alluring range of 10-, 11- and 12-night itineraries including Norwegian Fjords, British Isles and European wine cruises.

Dan Hanrahan, president and ceo of Celebrity Cruises in Miami, made the trip over to the UK to announce the good news this week.  “UK holidaymakers are incredibly supportive of Celebrity Cruises and this is demonstrated by Celebrity Eclipse achieving the highest customer satisfaction ratings of all our ships” said Hanrahan. “Our decision to base Celebrity Infinity in Harwich affirms our belief in the strength of the UK business and is in direct response to increased demand for more Celebrity Cruises holiday experiences.”

With this announcement, Celebrity will now have a fleet of six ships in Europe, with the Celebrity Constellation, Equinox and Silhouette, as well as the new Celebrity Reflection cruising from the Continent, and the Celebrity Eclipse and Infinity from the UK. The Celebrity Constellation will also be offering a series of wine cruises from Southampton this autumn.

Harwich, where Celebrity Infinity will be based, has the only cruise terminal in the UK still served by a traditional boat train that pulls into a station right alongside the cruise ships from London’s Liverpool Street Station.
