Celebrity Cruises Cancels One Mediterranean Cruise

MIAMI, July 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Celebrity Cruises is canceling its July 22 cruise on Millennium to replace a thrust-bearing unit in the ship's port propulsion system. The ship must enter drydock to replace the bearing. The cancelled cruise is an 11-night voyage from Barcelona to Venice. The ship is expected to resume service August 2.

"Unfortunately, the thrust-bearing unit in our port propulsion system is showing premature wear," said Jack Williams, president and chief operating officer of Celebrity Cruises. "I know this will upset our guests, and I am truly sorry we must cancel their cruise. Regrettably, it is important we replace this unit as soon as possible. We will work closely with our travel agency partners to provide our guests with the best possible alternative plans."

Guests booked on the July 22 sailing will receive a full refund for their cruise, plus a free future Celebrity cruise of up to 12 nights, departing on or before December 15, 2004, excluding holiday sailings. Guests' travel agents will receive their full commission for the July 22 cruise, plus a $50 rebooking fee, per stateroom, when their clients reschedule their cruise.

Celebrity has established a special Help Desk to assist guests and travel agents with reaccommodations. The Help Desk number is 1-877-200-2897.

The canceled cruise is expected to have a negative impact on Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.'s third-quarter earnings of $.04 to $.05 per share.
