OVERVIEW
     On 2 March 2009, Celebrity Galaxy made her last
voyage for Celebrity Cruises.  She was transferred to TUI
Cruises, a joint venture between Royal Caribbean and
TUI AG.  The ship was renamed Mein Schiff.  
Accordingly, the material in this section is presented for
historical purposes.
CELEBRITY GALAXY attracts upscale experienced
travelers.  These are people who have been to many
destinations and are looking for a relaxing but stimulating
experience.  They want some formality but also time to
be casual.  They desire quality and good service.
The decor of Galaxy is attuned to that audience.  It is
modern and sophisticated.  This is reflected not only in
the design of the public spaces but in the extensive art
collection spread throughout the public areas.  While
there is an occasional nod to the past, most of these
works are relatively contemporary.  Moreover, there is
more than a touch of whimsy in it.  Although the pieces
may not be to everyone's taste, they are interesting and
one gets the feeling that some intelligent thought went
into putting it together.
Sophisticated travelers require good service and
Celebrity makes service a priority.  The staff is friendly
and the take pride in their work.
At 77,000 gross tons, Galaxy is a large ship, although
well below the size of the recent mega-cruise ships.  Built
in 1996, she is kept very clean and showed no obvious
signs of wear.  Nonetheless, a refurbishment is planned
for 2008.

generally minimalist style.
