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 has 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.
