Celebrity Cruises will redeploy Celebrity Century to the Mediterranean next summer. The new sailings replace the previously announced series of four and five-night cruises from Miami (Florida) between May and October 2010.
“Celebrity Century’s four and five-night Caribbean cruises are very popular, but discussions with our travel partners and guests in North America and Europe indicated even stronger demand for the ship in Europe next summer,” said Celebrity Cruises President Dan Hanrahan. “And, with our new, widely-heralded Celebrity Solstice scheduled to sail in the Caribbean year-round, our guests can enjoy the best seven-night Caribbean cruise experience on the market”.
Celebrity Century will continue to sail four and five-night Caribbean cruises from November 2009 until early May 2010.
As a prelude to its European season, the ship will depart Miami on 20 May 2010, on a 14-night transatlantic cruise calling at Ponta Delgada (Azores); Lisbon (Portugal) Seville (Spain) and Malaga (Spain) before porting in Barcelona (Spain). Arriving on 3 June 2010 Celebrity Century will begin a series of 12-night, roundtrip Mediterranean cruises.
Ports of call on the new sailings include; Cannes, Monte Carlo, Nice, Provence, Sicily and Salerno on Italy’s Amalfi Coast; Florence/Pisa and Rome; Venice, Ephesus (Turkey), Athens (Greece) and Dubrovnik (Croatia).
Celebrity Century’s 2010 Europe season will end with a 14-night transatlantic voyage departing Barcelona on 25 October 2010, calling at Malaga (Spain), Madeira (Portugal), Tenerife (Canary Islands) and La Palma (Canary Island) before arriving into Miami (Florida) where Celebrity Century will resume its popular four and five-night Caribbean sailings.
Bookings for Celebrity Century’s new Europe sailings in 2010 open on Thursday 27 August 2009.
All guests with confirmed bookings on Celebrity Century’s four and five-night Caribbean sailings between 20 May and 4 November 2010, are being contacted with the option to be reaccommodated from their four or five-night cruise on Celebrity Century to a seven-night sailing on Celebrity Solstice, subject to availability, in a similar category at the same price paid.
