Celebrity Cruises was founded in 1988 as part of the Chandaris Group, a Greece-based company. In 1997, Celebrity became part of Royal Caribbean International when the Candris family sold their interest in Celebrity Cruises. Celebrity began to rapidly expand its fleet, and today, it is considered a premium cruise line that is known for its glass dining rooms, formal foyers and multiple dining venues.
While Celebrity Cruises touts the fact it has been named the Best Premium Cruise Line for eight consecutive years in Travel Weekly’s Reader’s Choice awards contest, not everyone has a positive experience aboard Celebrity ships. Passengers and crew have been raped, attacked, injured, made sick, or even killed while aboard Celebrity ships.
When something goes wrong, victims need to understand their rights. A cruise ship lawyer at Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A. can provide legal assistance to passengers, as well as crew who sustain harm while aboard any of Celebrity’s ships. Since 1971, we have been helping all persons who have been seriously injured or harmed at sea. Let us put our maritime experience to work for you.
Celebrity Cruise Ships
Celebrity Cruise operates 10 ships, which the company indicates are all “built to make your vacation everything you wanted and then some.” The ships are divided into Solstice Class, Millennium Class, and Celebrity Class. The 10 ships include:
- The Celebrity Eclipse
- The Celebrity Equinox
- The Celebrity Silhouette
- The Celebrity Solstice
- The Celebrity Reflection
- The Celebrity Constellation
- The Celebrity Infinity
- The Celebrity Millennium
- The Celebrity Summit
- The Celebrity Xpedition
While Celebrity promises travelers its ships are built to make a vacation everything they’ve hoped for; unfortunately, the cruise line often fails to disclose the very real risks of sexual assault aboard the ships, as well as the risk of accidents or death on the ship, on shore excursions, or in instances where passengers fall overboard.
For example, approximately 100 people became sick as a result of a Norovirus outbreak aboard a Celebrity Cruise ship in just one of many incidents in which passengers and crew suffered harm on one of the cruise line’s boats. Whenever illness, injury, or death occur, it is important for victims to understand their right to pursue a case against Celebrity.
