Celebrity Cancels Sunday's Cruise on Infinity

March 23, 2005
In the latest of a series of propulsion-related failures that have, from time to time, plagued Celebrity's Millennium-class ships, the cruise line announces that Infinity's March 27 departure has been canceled.

The ship, now sailing a 14-night Panama Canal cruise that winds up in San Diego, was slated to depart on for a 10-night cruise from Ensenada to Hawaii on Sunday. (Celebrity officials expect the existing cruise to carry on as scheduled.)

The company says in a statement that the unscheduled dry dock is anticipated to take the ship out of commission for just this voyage. Infinity's April 6 sailing is planned as scheduled, according to the statement.

Celebrity, which even disappointed cruisers must admit is a class act when it comes to compensation for this type of occurrence, is offering displaced travelers a full refund and free future 10-night cruise (excluding holiday sailings and Celebrity Xpedition voyages). There's a help desk to assist impacted folks: call 888-837-5676 (or your travel agent) for help with rebooking and air transportation.
