Good news for Celebrity fans, construction of Celebrity Equinox is ahead of schedule, so much, in fact, that the ship will now offer a soft-launch prior to the ship's official maiden voyage on August 8.
The cruise will depart July 31 roundtrip from Southampton, England, with an itinerary through the Norwegian Fjords. Celebrity has offered guests booked on the maiden voyage the opportunity to combine their 10-night "Best of Europe" cruise with the eight-night soft launch. By doing so, guests will receive an onboard spending credit of $200 per stateroom or $300 per suite.
The eight-night cruise features calls in Stavanger, Flam, Geiranger and Oslo, Norway.
