I've been scanning the recent vitriolic posts about Celebrity, and can't help wondering if these folks didn't board the African Queen by mistake. It sure doesn't sound like the Celebrity we know and love. Cruises in the past 12 months on both Holland America (third time) and Royal Caribbean have only reinforced our determination to stick with Celebrity. Half a dozen recent Celebrity cruises, including three on Millennium (two ending in Barcelona where disembarcation went well and nothing was stolen), plus Galaxy, Zenith and Constellation have all been wonderful and without complaint. Maybe we were just lucky?
Anyway, my question is - Does anyone have a clue where the new ships will be based?
We'd very much like to book the inaugural cruise on Solstice, and also either Journey or Quest. I can't learn anything on the web site or from the Captain's Club, but all three ships will be in service next year, and they must have made some decisions by now.
Also, and for what it's worth, we sailed from Port Canaveral last week on the Mariner and one of the RCI folks on shore told me that they'd heard that Celebrity was going to base a ship there. Maybe just wishful thinking, but it sure would shorten the drive to Fort Lauderdale.
