Carnival's Celebration Gets Makeover
Carnival's Celebration returns to year-round sailings from Galveston with a spiffy new look. A multi-million dollar refurbishment -- the ship spent 70 days in drydock in the Bahamas -- has resulted in an all-new purser's lobby, a reconfiguring of seating in the newly-decorated Vista and Horizon restaurants, and replacement of carpeting in corridors and on stair-landings. Most important for passengers, perhaps, is that each of the ship's 743 cabins got a complete update, including new curtains, carpeting and wallpaper -- not to mention upgraded bedding and bedspreads. Bathrooms are now equipped with in-shower soap and shampoo dispensers; some were re-tiled.

Just as important though not as noticeable were technical and mechanical upgrades. Some of the ship's public areas, from pool decks to the multi-tiered Astoria Lounge, received minor cosmetic improvements.

Celebration, which has been sailing four- and five-day Mexican itineraries from Galveston since September 2000, will -- as of this re-launch -- resume sailing the same routes.
