MIAMI, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- To offer guests more time in
select ports of call and a better arrival time for viewing Alaska's
breathtaking, ice-blue Hubbard Glacier on Mercury's seven-night Alaska
sailings in 2007, Celebrity Cruises has changed the ship's port of arrival and
departure to Vancouver, B.C.
Guests currently holding reservations with deposits made for Celebrity's
Mercury cruises from Seattle between May 4, 2007, and September 14, 2007, will
receive a $100 per stateroom onboard credit. Celebrity's Air/Sea department
will make the necessary changes for any Air/Sea guests whose air travel is
impacted by the shift to Vancouver.
Cruise-only guests who incur a fee due to changing their air reservations
will be reimbursed up to $100 per person, providing proof of the air change
fee is provided.
The itinerary from Vancouver will feature the same ports of call: Juneau,
Skagway, and Ketchikan, Alaska, and including cruises through the Inside
Passage and several hours beside Hubbard Glacier.
Celebrity is proactively contacting all travel agents with clients holding
reservations affected by this change; however, agents as well as guests with
individual or group bookings are welcome to call Celebrity's re-accommodation
desk, at 1-888-281-9343.
Celebrity Cruises offers comfortably sophisticated, upscale cruise
experiences with highly personalized service, authentic five-star dining, and
extraordinary attention to detail. Celebrity sails in Alaska, Bermuda,
California, Caribbean, Europe, Galapagos Islands, Hawaii, Mexican Riviera,
Panama Canal and South America, and will begin sailing in Australia and New
Zealand in 2007. Noted for "The World's Best Large Ships," as voted by the
readers of Conde' Nast Traveler (February 2006 Cruise Poll), Celebrity's
current nine-ship fleet will be joined by Celebrity Solstice in 2008,
Celebrity Equinox in 2009, and a third Solstice-class ship in 2010. For more
