Celebrity Silhouette returns



Port of Dover welcomes the return of Celebrity Silhouette

The Port of Dover’s reputation as a port of choice for luxury cruise ships continued to go from strength to strength when the magnificent Solstice Class cruise ship Celebrity Silhouette returned on Monday 6 June. 

The celebrated White Cliffs of Dover once again provided an iconic backdrop as the largest ship in the Celebrity Cruises luxury fleet was steered into port alongside Cruise Terminal 2 with the assistance of the port’s skilled pilots. The 319m ship, accommodating up to 2,885 passengers, stayed in port overnight before sailing for Amsterdam on a 12-night Baltic Capital Cities Cruise. 

Dover is the second busiest cruise destination in the UK with around 200,000 cruise enthusiasts welcomed to the port each year. Here they can take advantage of a host of award-winning facilities such as spacious, comfortable departure lounges and stylish café bars. Other benefits include Dover’s outstanding pre and post cruise accommodation, historic attractions and easy proximity to London. 

Barbara Buczek, –Director of Corporate Development, Port of Dover, said: 

“It is a delight to once again welcome this impressive cruise ship to the Port of Dover. As the biggest in the Celebrity Cruises fleet of ten, it’s an ideal opportunity for us to demonstrate how well the Port of Dover can accommodate this type of vessel and showcase our fantastic facilities. With our ambitious Dover Western Docks Revival project underway we continue to work towards making Dover the best port in the world for our valued cruise customers and look forward to welcoming Celebrity Silhouette back in the future.”

After arriving in Amsterdam, Celebrity Silhouette will continue on to Copenhagen, Denmark; Warnemunde, Germany; Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland and Stockholm, Sweden.
