Silhouette on the Mersey

LIVERPOOL is set to welcome a brand new addition to the City's Cruise calendar. Celebrity Silhouette is making her inaugural call to Liverpool on Monday, 15 June 2015, and it's an extra special visit for the ship, as it is Celebrity Cruise's 25th Birthday.

To mark the occasion, Liverpool's Cruise Team will throw them a very special birthday welcome with live music, a welcome from the official Town Crier Terry Stubbings and a birthday cake presented by Lord Mayor Councillor Tony Concepcion to Captain Dimitrios Kafetzis and Hotel Director Raffaele Bernardini. And to make sure that this City has made an unforgettable impression, the team are also planning a sail away concert which will include a live operatic performance from Mezzo soprano Danielle Thomas and confetti cannons.

Councillor Concepcion, said:- "I am delighted to be able to present Captain Dimitrios Kafetzis and Hotel Director Raffaele Bernardini. with a cake to mark Celebrity's birthday and officially welcome passengers and crew to our wonderful city. It's been an incredibly busy few weeks for our small cruise team, with the visit of the ginormous Royal Princess which was followed by three rather large ships arriving on the River Mersey, paying us an unforgettable visit! The inaugural visit of Celebrity Silhouette means we can continue the celebrations and give the passengers and crew a warm Liverpool welcome for what we hope is the 1st of many visits."

The American vessel can accommodate 2,866 passengers on board and 1,500 crew and is set to arrive at 9.30am, on Monday, 15 June 2015, and depart at 7.30pm. She is 4 years old and will be doing a round Britain tour.

Leon Hand, Senior Trainer for Celebrity Cruises said:- "It has been great to receive such a warm welcome from the City of Liverpool for Celebrity Silhouette's 1st visit. The City has a strong maritime history and we are proud to be a part of that. We would like to thank the Lord Mayor Councillor Concepcion and cruise team from the City Council for a great celebration and look forward to welcoming guests on board."
