Celebrity Cruises Honors Its Own, Naming Four Employees Godmothers Of Celebrity Reflection

Stocks in this article: RCL

"These impressive women personify the qualities we admire among our Solstice Class Godmothers: remarkable strength and courage, along with optimism, warmth and genuine care for others," said Bayley. "They beautifully represent countless other women within our company and around the world who have battled the disease or supported the cause in honor of friends or family who have done so."

Celebrity Cruises' support of the cause began in 2008 with an event on Celebrity Solstice to raise funds for breast cancer screenings for low-income women. Next, the brand sponsored the first "Celebrity Sunwalk" in association with Walk the Walk, a breast cancer charity founded by the Godmother of Celebrity Equinox, Nina Barough. And last year, Celebrity became an official corporate partner of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), offering Celebrity's guests the opportunity to make a difference while enjoying their vacation through a unique lineup of onboard experiences that help raise awareness and funds for BCRF.

Celebrity is showing its support of the cause even further this month through multiple initiatives, including an integration and cruise auction featured in Bloomingdale's "Big Pink Book," with a percentage of sales benefiting BCRF; a sweepstakes to win a cruise with a $1,000 donation to BCRF in the winner's name; a "pink" home page takeover of Celebrity's web site, www.celebritycruises.com, and relevant content on its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/celebritycruises, throughout the month; a donation to BCRF of $2 for every  "Excite the Senses" lifestyle book sold onboard and online; pink-hued emails to customers; "Starring Crew Week" honoring Celebrity's crew across the fleet with special events to raise funds for BCRF, and events engaging and educating employees at Celebrity's headquarters. All of this complements the continuation of the year-around activities supporting BCRF: "Celebrity Freedance" and the auction of works of art created by glassblowing artists from The Corning Museum of Glass at the Hot Glass Show on Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Equinox and Celebrity Eclipse.

The four Godmothers of Celebrity Reflection will preside over the naming of the ship in Miami on December 1, and consistent with Celebrity's Solstice Class tradition, will be joined by the Godmothers of each of Celebrity Reflection's sister ships.
