Celebrity Cruise lines to Sail in Asia


Celebrity to begin Asia cruising in late 2012

By Donna Tunney
Celebrity will operate Asia cruises for the first time during the winter 2012-13 season with the deployment of the 2,000-passenger Celebrity Millennium.

The ship will operate a series of 14-night open-jaw cruises between Singapore and Hong Kong, along with two 14-night sailings roundtrip from Singapore with overnight stays in Bali, Indonesia.

Bookending the ship’s first Asia season will be two transpacific voyages. The westbound cruise will coincide with the total solar eclipse in November 2012.

In April 2013, the Celebrity Millenium will reposition from Hong Kong to Shanghai, then continue eastbound across the North Pacific to Alaska and will call at various ports in China, Japan, and Russia.

The ship will begin its Asia itineraries as a “Solstice-ized” vessel, following a drydock in April 2012 during which 70 of its Concierge Class staterooms will be refitted into Celebrity’s spa-inspired AquaClass staterooms. An additional 37 AquaClass staterooms will be built, the line said.

“Visiting the Far East for the first time is the result of constantly listening to consumers, who have told us they’re eager to vacation in the region with Celebrity,” said Celebrity CEO Dan Hanrahan.
