Default Celebrity Reflection Conveyance

Celebrity Reflection Conveyance
by Paul Motter

The fifth and final sister ship in the Celebrity Solstice class is the largest and most exciting vessel in the family.

Refection was floated out on August 13th Celebrity Reflection just made its way down the Ems River in it "conveyance" to the North Sea. Conveyance s the word that has been coined by the Meyer Werft shipyard for the process of getting a brand new ship down the very narrow river where the shipyard is located.

The Meyer Werft Shipyard is now one of the most popular shipyards in the world, since the competition between shipyards has escalated post-recession. In the past many ships were built at the STX shipyards in France and Finland, and at the Fincantieri shipyards in Trieste and Genoa, but since competition has heated up between shipyards the number of ships being built at the Papenburg yard has been getting busier, and the ships have gotten larger.
