And now today they have had to cancel the rest of their Alaskan voyage and send the guests home. Apparently they have not been able to resolve the issue with one of the two propulsion engines and the Coast Guard is not letting them sail until fixed. (At least not with guests aboard).

Celebrity has now canceled the next 4 cruises (effectively canceling the remainder of the Millennium's Alaskan season.

Celebrity has refunded the current guests cruise fare and provided a future cruise credit equal to the current cruise cost and is flying passengers home.

Hopefully the team of experts they are bringing in can resolve the problem once and for all.. maybe a new engine is in order? I bet that is not an easy fix.
