Celebrity Equinox is christened

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On July - 29 - 2009

With a toot of the bagpipes, blessings from heaven, hugs, and a smash of champagne from a custom-made bottle by The Corning Museum of Glass the Celebrity Equinox was christened in Southampton, England. The very traditional ceremony was headlined by Godmother Nina Barough, founder of the United Kingdom-based breast cancer charity “Walk the Walk”.

The 2,850-guest Equinox is sister-ship to the line’s highly-acclaimed Celebrity Solstice. The new ship features 1,426 staterooms, 85 percent of which include a veranda.

Celebrity also continues its tradition of showcasing some of the finest examples of contemporary art aboard its newest ship that is entitled “The Essence of Equinox”. This high caliber collection consists of nearly 500 original works that are rarely seen outside major museums, art galleries and private collections. Equinox also features a selection of works from the lauded collection that graced Celebrity Galaxy prior to the ship’s transition to the TUI Cruises fleet earlier this year.

Here are some photos of the ceremony and around the ship.
