Celebrity Solstice

Info

The "Celebrity Solstice", the largest cruise liner ever built in Germany, was launched from the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg at the end of 2008. However, it is not only the luxury cruiser's gigantic dimensions that are setting new standards but also the attention-grabbing leisure feature in the form of a natural and playable golfing lawn covering an area of 1,500 m² on the uppermost deck ("The Lawn Club"), 36 metres above sea level.
According to the ship's owner, the green roof - or rather "green deck" - is the first of this kind and dimension ever installed on a ship. Celebrity Cruises is marketing this green idea as an attraction for everyone who wants to feel real grass underfoot when sailing the seas. Golf, boccia, croquet and picnics provide for even greater variety on board between Florida and the Bahamas.
