Celebrity keel laid

CELEBRITY Cruises has held a keel laying ceremony for its new Galapagos ship Celebrity Flora, marking the start of the vessel’s construction.

Flora will be the line’s first ship purpose-built for the Galapagos Islands and will sail year-round from Baltra after its launch in early 2019.

Yesterday’s keel laying took place at the DeHoop shipyards in the Netherlands and involved a traditional coin placement beneath a 49.2 tonne block.

Celebrity Flora will carry 100 guests and is billed as having the largest accom in the islands.
