Celebrity Cruises to cruise down under in 2011-12
Royal Caribbean's Celebrity Cruises will return to Australasian waters in 2011-12, with the 1814-passenger Celebrity Century to operate a series of trans-Tasman voyages and an Australian circumnavigation over the peak cruising season.
The announcement marks the return of Celebrity to Australia for the first time in a number of years, and will see Century operate itineraries departing from Sydney, Fremantle and Auckland.
The program includes a 36-night circumnavigation of Australia which comprises two 18-night sailings split into a northern and southern itinerary.
Century's Australasian deployment will replace previously announced cruises departing Baltimore in the US for the Caribbean.
Celebrity said bookings for the new season would open on 29 Jul.
