Celebrity Century to leave fleet in 2015

Celebrity Century to leave fleet in 2015

By Tom Stieghorst

Celebrity Cruises said its oldest ship, the 1,814-passenger Celebrity Century, will leave the fleet in April 2015.

The exit of Century, built in 1995, would leave Celebrity with five Solstice-class and four Millennium-class ships, along with its 98-passenger Xpedition ship. It has no new ships on order.

Celebrity has not said what it plans to do with Celebrity Century, although a page on the CDF Croisieres de France website last year said it would be the new operator of Century. Like Celebrity Cruises, CDF is owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

A special 14-night president's cruise in Asia has been scheduled in March 2015 to commemorate Century’s time with Celebrity.
