Royal Caribbean’s Celebrity Cruises has announced the retirement of its 1,814-passenger vessel Celebrity Century and the special itineraries for its ‘Celebration of the Century’ programme including a president’s cruise.
The ship, which is the oldest in the company’s fleet, will end its service for Celebrity in April 2015. It is due to enter the fleet of Royal Caribbean’s French brand CDF Croisieres de France later that year.
The vessel’s final season will see it call at 17 new destinations and include a 14-night cruise with Michael Bayley, the line’s CEO & president, on 8 March 2015 from Vietnam to the Philippines.
The itineraries for the final season have gone on sale today (14 February) and include cruises in the Caribbean, Alaska, Asia, Europe and the Pacific Islands.
Other new destinations include Manila and Boracay (Philippines), Bandar Seri Begawan (Brunei), and Rangoon (Burma) in a season which will see the Celebrity Celebrity visit more destinations than any other vessel in Celebrity’s fleet of 11 ships.
Celebrity Century entered the Celebrity fleet in 1995 and was the first ship to have the company’s renowned Martini Bar and Murano restaurant.
