The final Solstice-class ship, Celebrity Reflection, is officially underway as the keel of the ship was laid down earlier today at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Celebrity Reflection is the fifth and final ship in the Celebrity Cruises’ Solstice-class.  

The 500-ton block measuring 66-ft by 118-ft was lifted into the building dock with an 800-ton crane, and commemoratively placed on a collection of coins, consistent with tradition.

Celebrity Reflection is set to hold more than 3,000-passengers and have one more additional deck than the other Solstice-class ships.

This is the tenth ship built for Celebrity Cruises by Meyer Werft, costing an estimated $750-million.
