'Here Comes the Sun': Celebrity Equinox Named in Southampton
Date:7/29/2009

MIAMI, July 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- In formal ceremonies today in the historic port of Southampton, England, before an audience of press, travel agents, and other special guests, Celebrity Cruises' newest ship - Celebrity Equinox - was officially named.

After buglers and a bagpipe and drum corps opened the ceremony, followed by a piano rendition of the Beatles' classic "Here Comes the Sun," Richard D. Fain, Chairman of Celebrity Cruises and Chairman and CEO of parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., delivered the ceremony address. Fain praised the ship's Godmother Nina Barough, CBE (Commander of the British Empire), and founder of the breast cancer charity "Walk the Walk."

"Her story, her outspoken devotion to breast cancer causes, and her day-to-day life is a compelling example of the need to take our health and well-being seriously," said Fain. "And all this paints a lovely picture of why we are so honored to have her as our Godmother."

Celebrity selected Barough in recognition of her fervent devotion to raising awareness of breast cancer and her tremendous success in raising funds for the cause - $85-million to-date - through her organization's "SunWalks" and "MoonWalks." The four annual marathon walks in London, Edinburgh, Bristol and Newcastle attract thousands of people typically clad in decorated bras - the signature apparel for most participants.

"As with our Godmother of Celebrity Solstice, we knew that for Celebrity Equinox, too, nothing less than someone genuinely devoted to the cause would do. And Nina exemplifies that exceptionally," said Celebrity Cruises President & CEO Dan Hanrahan. "Her tireless efforts have benefited countless women battling breast cancer, and her personal triumph over it has inspired thousands of women, men and families in the UK and beyond."
