Celebrity cruise cancelled to fix Constellation

Celebrity Cruises said its Nov. 21 departure of the Celebrity Constellation is being cancelled so the ship’s engines can be repaired.

The three-night cruise to the Bahamas is being scrubbed because Celebrity needs to replace a large engine component that can only be done in dry dock, spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez said.

"Due to the shipyard's availability, we decided to cancel the short cruise so that we could perform the work in November,” Martinez said.

Passengers booked on the Nov. 21 cruise can get a full refund or reschedule on select Constellation sailings in 2015 at lowest available rates or on any Celebrity sailing at prevailing rates and receive a $100 onboard spending credit per cabin.
