Celebrity sailings cancelled in favour of private charter

September 24, 2014

Celebrity Cruises has offered passengers on board credit after the company cancelled two planned sailings around Japan. 

The firm explained to passengers booked on the 14-night Japan cruises for September 27th 2015 and October 11th that their trips will now no longer take place because of a private charter. 

An amendment has also been made to the September 11th 2015 sailing, with the company stating that this trip will now draw to an end in Shanghai instead of Tokyo. 

Passengers who wish to rebook their journeys have been given the chance to do so at the lowest available rate for selected cruises on the firm’s Millennium and Solstice ships. They will also receive a $300 (£178) onboard credit per stateroom, with this amount increased by the company to $500 for suites.

A help desk for those passengers who have questions about the cancellation of their trips has also been set up by Celebrity Cruises and this will remain open until August 22nd. 

Millenium is one of Celebrity’s finest ships and it boasts a raft of features, including an art gallery, the Cosmos Lounge and a wine bar named Cellar Masters.
