Remembering the brilliant Celebrity Cruises "ZENITH"
During the nineties and the early years of this new century the sisters HORIZON and ZENITH operated by CELEBRITY CRUISES ranked amongst my favourite cruise ships, they were also two of the most prestigious cruise ships afloat, I have never sailed on both of them but my brother, who I thank for the photos included, sailed on the ZENITH in 2005 and loved the experience. "ZENITH" was built by MEYER WERFT in Germany, a sign of quality in its own in 1992 and was operated until 2007 by CELEBRITY, with the growing reputation of the company and the need for much larger tonnage the sisters were sold. As built the "ZENITH" was 47.255 GRT with capacity for just over 1700 passengers, the ship had a cruising speed of 21.5 knots, propelled by Diesel Engines. "ZENITH" is still sailing, at twenty she probably is in her prime, she is operated by Spanish PULLMANTUR and still offering a great cruising experience, for passengers that dislike the massive new cruise ships, she is indeed a ship to be considered, publicity apart, for the ship's schedule please visit, official site on www.pullmantur.es.
